I was lucky enough to be invited to a luncheon this past Friday at our local Krogers to discuss and reveal the exciting FRUGAL CHALLENGE in which EVERYONE is invited to participate in!
The rules are simple you have to start with a CLEAN SLATE (no old ECB, RR , CATALINAS |ETC) and spend no more than $10 after rebates (TAX NOT INCLUDED) and have everything turned in by the deadline. ALL of the school supplies collected will be donated to the BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF RICHMOND
How cool is that?
Last year there were only 4 that participated RICHMOND BLOGGERS:
Eleanor from Saving Our Way, Tiffany from Young and Frugal in Virginia, Stephanie form Coupon Clipping Mommy, and Allison from Richmond Bargains . Together they collected over $500 in supplies to help others. This year they decided to expand the opportunity to not only other bloggers but YOU THE READERS OF THE BLOG AS WELL!
To top off all of that KROGER will be donating up to $1000 in Matching Monies to help with the project and is awarding prizes to the top 3 SAVINGS SPECIALISTS! How does $200 Kroger Gift Card sound for starters?
1st Place: $200 Kroger Gift Card
2nd Place: $100 Kroger Gift Card
3rd Place: $50 Kroger Gift Card
THE CHALLENGE BEGAN YESTERDAY (I'm a day late posting this due to personal reasons) but GO GO GO GET STARTED
ALL SUPPLIES MUST HAVE ASSOCIATED REC'T AND BE FROM B&M STORES
RULES AND SPREADSHEET are available HERE
