Friday freebies AND Southern Women's Show giveaway!

Posted March 18, 2011

Happy Friday everyone! It’s freebies AND giveaway time! Anyone want to go to the Southern Women’s Show in April….for FREE?!

Giveaway Time

This week, we are giving away 5 sets of tickets to the Southern Women’s Show at the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh. The show takes place April 8-10 and these tickets are good for any of those days. Each of the 5 winners will receive 2 tickets. The show this year looks like a TON of fun with fashion shows, makeovers, cooking shows, celebrities and much more. I will be teaching a coupon class each day and I’m pairing with cookbook author Lisa Shively to put on “Let’s Bake a Deal”, a fun, interactive cooking segment where you can play games and win prizes while we chat about meal planning. Be sure to stop by my Smart Shopper booth adjacent to the WRAL booth at the show. There’s sure to be some freebies and I would love to meet you!

To enter this giveaway for 5 pairs of tickets to the Southern Women’s Show, post something frugal you plan on doing during this beautiful weekend. Easy as that! I will choose the winners on Tuesday, March 22 at 11:00 AM and post the winning entries soon after 11:00. Good Luck!

    My daughter and I gathered up clothes and toys to take to the Women's shelter. I also organized my coupons, taking out the expired and pulling ones for family and friends to share. This year I hope to learn how to save more. Thank You Faye for your help!

    I spent the weekend going thru closets and drawers and divided things up between donate, sell, and trash. I have put several items on Ebay/Craigslist and sold 2 items so far. I also organized my coupons and giftcards and found 2 giftcards that I forgot I had as well as 4 coupons for free items - FREE!! I can't wait until next weekend to see what I can find. Thank you Faye!!

    Actually spent too much money this past weekend, BUT will be making up for it at HT this week with all the super doubles!! PICK ME!! :)

    I had a wonderful Frugal Weekend.

    First- HT to pick up those wonderfully priced eggs and the 2 for $3 Jif, which I use at work, instead of visiting the vending machine.

    Then to Lowe's Home Improvement, where I picked up some strawberry plants for $1.24 (Half Price) which will save me some quick cash when I harvest the berries and do not have to go to the store to buy strawberries. Also, instead of having to purchase soil, I have been composting, so had plenty of rich soil for free!!!

    Also, during a RedBox movie with DH, I clipped my Q's, to get ready for the BIG shop at HT on Wednesday AM.

    Thanks for all the wonderful deals you help us with. It is so nice to save $$!

    plan to organize all my coupons and be prepared to go to HT on Wednesday am for Super Doubles!

    We had a picnic on Saturday, and since it was cool on Sunday, we stayed in and watched the race.

    Well for starters, I am new to couponing and I have never been to the Southern Women's show. I never even heard about it until now. I asked around at my job and a lot of people said I should go. I would love to go, especially if I could go for free. Friday, I had to work so we didn't do much. I had leftovers for lunch and for dinner we are eating chicken helper that I got at HT last super double and Green Giant corn that I got there too. The chicken, I got on sale at Food Lion, it was 50% off. We will be had Free movie night all weekend, Thanks to the Free Trial with Netflix(signed up through swagbucks which got me a free $5 gift card to amazon). Saturday we walked to the park that is down the street. On the way back we stopped at the library to cheeck out some books for free; of course. Sunday we went to church and they had kids night which allowed us to get free food and free fun.
    Thanks, Hope to see you at the Southern's Women Show.

    I worked cleaning out closets for the spring/summer and getting ready to sell the items that I don't need for an upcoming consignment sale

    I worked in the yard helping the husband pick up limbs to start mowing yard and pruned some bushes. Today for supper I used some chicken and vegetables that were in the freezer. My husband said it was a delicious meal!!!
