BlogHer is a conference for bloggers with a female audience that’s being held in San Diego this August. I was lucky enough to go last year when it was held in NYC, and I got to meet some interesting people like Padma Lakshmi, Grayson Chance, Bruce Jenner, and Gretchen Rubin (The Happiness Project), Dora the Explorer as well as some other really cool bloggers. Besides meeting some wonderful people, I learned a lot about the world of blogging!
Retailmenot.com is sponsoring 14 bloggers at the convention this year and I really hope to be one of them. Since I already have purchased a ticket, I’ll donate my ticket to another Mommysavers blogger who has not been there before if I do win. To help get us there, all you have to do is vote for my money saving tip (It’s the one about Not-So-Extreme Couponing) here:
My Tip: Be a “Not-So-Extreme” Couponer: In today’s age of extremes, it’s important to remind people to use frugality to create financial peace, not domestic overload. Extreme couponing has its costs, not the least of which is the time and energy invested in creating a stockpile full of things that may not even be useful. Use a balanced approach when it comes to couponing. Designate a pre-set time limit each week to your couponing efforts (such as an hour), focusing on high-value coupons for the things your family already eats and buys. Track your savings and expenses, then compare against time spent. Other time invested is often better spent cooking healthy meals that are inexpensive to begin! — Kim at Mommysavers.com
