This week has been a busy one in terms of publicity for Northern Cheapskate.
It started with my usual segment on KAXE 91.7 FM’s Morning Show on Monday. Then on Tuesday, my blog got a mention on KARE 11 TV’s website as part of Jeff Olsen’s story “Surviving the Economy: Get Cheap.”
Last week, I read Star Tribune Reporter Kara McGuire’s article “A Case of Triple Trepidation” about a Twin Cities couple who is facing the addition of triplets to their family of three. The couple was struggling with how to make ends meet with a growing family. I was moved by the article to share some of my money saving tips with the Karnowski Family… and in return, Kara interviewed me for this Sunday’s Ka–Ching column in the Money Section of the Star Tribune. You can read it here.
All the attention has been very flattering… and I’m so excited to have new readers!
For those of you who are new here, let me just give you a brief idea of what Northern Cheapskate is all about:
I’m a stay-at-home mom of three boys under the age of three living in rural northern Minnesota. I have a passion for frugal living, bargain hunting, and freebies. My goal with this blog is to motivate my readers to live better for less…. to make the most of what they’ve got, to be happy with what they have… and most importantly, to take personal responsibility for their finances.
I try to update the site daily with my thoughts on frugal living, bargains, freebies, and other money-saving tips. I encourage you to subscribe to my blog by entering your e-mail address in the form in the upper right-hand corner of this page. I also encourage you to share your frugal thoughts, bargains, and questions with me. I’m not a financial advisor, but I’ll do my best to help you and I love spreading the word about good deals.
To my faithful readers, thank you so much for your tips and comments. This blog is made better with your participation! You keep me motivated to watch my pennies, and for that, I thank you!
