Exciting News!

I have been awarded two awards from fellow bloggers this week!
Stay tuned to see who I'll pass these awards on to.
Thanks to Coupon Saving Family for this one!

And, thanks to Maternal Madness for this one!

It always feels good to get sweet emails from readers. Thanks to both of these ladies for the nice compliments. I am glad my blog has been so helpful!

In Other Exciting News...

I've been chosen to participate in a NEW Wal-mart video community campaign! About a month ago I received a call from Wal-Mart's advertising asking me if I wanted in. The deal is, Wal-Mart is partnering with You Tube and will be offering a new feature on their site - just for you- money saving moms! This is set to launch some time in September. In the mean time, I am busy shooting short videos about how I save money. These videos will be available on the Wal-mart site. Wal-mart sent me (and the eleven other moms) a FLIP video camera from Pure Digital to help us capture just how we are saving money!

Just so you know...
These videos can be about ANY way that we save money and I have NO obligation to Wal-Mart (Read: I am NOT being paid). Although, as you know I do a post each week on coupon matches at Wal-Mart - so that is not OUT of the question.

I am really excited about this opportunity as it will bring a whole new piece to my blog - video blogging (or vlogging). I feel this will also help YOU as know you can SEE how I am saving money!

Another cool thing is Wal-Mart is having us make videos but they also want YOUR videos. They will be offering a year's supply of groceries to one lucky winner who offers up their money saving video (The Wal-Mart "eleven" moms can't win).

As I mentioned, I am one of 12 moms that have been chosen. We will be known as the "Eleven Moms." (Okay, I said 12 moms and we'll be known as the "Eleven Moms!" - How's that for value - 12 for the price of 11! =)

So Who Are the "Eleven Moms?"

They are so awesome! I think the best part of this deal is I have meet 11 other awesome women and I am getting to work with them! I am so out of my league! These blogs/women are INCREDIBLE and I have already learned so much!!
