Giveaway: Southern Women's Show tickets!

Posted March 1, 2013


How would you like to attend the Southern Women's Show with a friend this year...for FREE?! Up for grabs are three sets of 2 tickets!

To enter to win one of the three sets of tickets: Leave a comment below telling us what you enjoy most about the Southern Women's Show. If you have never been, let us know what you hope to see at the show.


I will randomly pick the 3 winners on Wednesday, March 6 at 2:00 pm. I'll post the winning usernames soon after 2:00. Good luck!

I'll be teaching a coupon class at the show once on Friday and once on Saturday. On Sunday, I'll be on the cooking stage with cookbook author, Lisa Shively, whipping up a frugal dish and chatting about meal planning in our game show/cooking class called "Let's Bake a Deal!". With a title like that, you know there are some fun prizes involved!

I will also be at the Smart Shopper/Go Aks Mom/Out and About booth on Friday morning and all day on Saturday. Look for the WRAL booth and you'll find the Smart Shopper/Go Ask Mom booth right next to it.

As always, the event has fashion shows (including one with fire fighters!), shopping, lots of food, free samples, coupons, cooking shows, celebrity guests and so much more!

    My sister and I have gone together for the past two years and it has become a new tradition for us. It's great bonding time and we love all of the food samples!

    have never been before but I think this would be a great opportunity for a mother / daughter day. my mother and I have both been busy working and haven't had a lot of time to spend together lately so I'd love to surprise her with tickets to this.

    I just moved to Raleigh this past summer, so I have never been to the Southern Women's Show. Although I have never been, I definitely want to attend. I hope to see homemade crafts, fashion, and food products. I have an 2 extremely special people in my life that are celebrating a 35th Wedding anniversary in May and need gift ideas. With my new-found love and appreciation for couponing,I also hope see some kind of literature on how to coupon most effectively and efficiently! Having the opportunity to receive these tickets would be helpful with my endeavors to shop on an EXTREMELY tight budget and truly be welcomed to Raleigh, and the state of NC by the women of the south!
