Blog Anniversary Party: Instant Bargains Book Giveaway (Closed)


In keeping with a frugal theme, the team at Uniroyal Tires is giving me the opportunity to give away a copy of Instant Bargains by Kimberly Danger. She's the "headline" contributor to the Uniroyal More Mileage for Your Money site, which offers value-conscious consumers fun, frugal advice on a variety of topics like family budgeting, time management, and decorating for less.  You'll find free e-books and videos, sweepstakes, and posts by cost-conscious bloggers.  It's a really neat website to help you stretch your budget.
