You guys are supposed to let me know if I miss something! Apparently this didn’t post- I was wondering where your mailing addresses were. Using Random.org, the numbers generated were posts 9 and 3. The winners are Michelle K. and Lavonne E. (isn’t Lavonne lucky!!!).
The bags have been backordered, but I will ship as soon as I receive them. Michelle, please email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today marks the one year anniversary of the first class offered by Gateway to Saving. This class was done under the group name ‘Frugal Friends’. I was asked by so many to share my knowledge and had very little time on my hands to work with everyone individually. This sparked an idea to my friends Lanie and Kristi, who set up the first class. Attendance was off the charts- completely unexpected.
Ironically, this class also took place on my birthday- sure makes it easy to remember! We had such a great time and everyone learned so much that I eventually decided to make this my full time hobby/profession. Looking back, I regret nothing. This has been quite the venture, but i wouldn’t trade it for the world. The classes have helped so many families get their finances on track without making drastic cuts in the lifestyles they were used to.
As my birthday/anniversary gift to you, I will be giving away (2) reusable Gateway to Saving canvas shopping bags. Each participant will be allowed up to two (2) entries into this drawing. You can earn one entry for leaving a comment regarding your favorite thing about Gateway to Saving. You can also earn one additional entry for leaving a comment telling me what you would like to see from Gateway to Saving in the future.
This giveaway will end at noon CST on Thursday, July 23rd.
