Oh, Hooray!

Remember when I posted about the All You Magazine 2009 Grocery Challenge?

I joined it!

I did it!

I'm one of the ten finalists!

I kept track of this, that and the other over here, if you're interested.

Me, I'm just tickled pink, and humbled, and nervous. I had to send all my receipts to New York City (NEW YORK CITY!!!) It was my first time ever in a FedEx...which makes me sound like a total hick, but there you go.

For the record, I've actually driven in Chicago before, and used public transportation in Honolulu. I even have a cell phone! See, I'm plenty cosmopolitan.

Did I mention that I missed the congratulations call because I was out back digging potatoes?

Congrats on being a finalist! I knew I probably wouldn't be a finalist, but I had fun with the challenge anyhow, and I'm still shopping/cooking that way! Hope you win!

Thanks, Beth! I didn't think I would be a finalist either...I'm still stunned. I hope that having participated in the challenge continues to benefit all of us with all the new ideas and strategies for saving. :)

I saw your intro on the Living Like No One Else board so I came over to visit :) Congrats on being a finalist! I also participated but did so knowing I probably wouldn't be a finalist. But the exchange of ideas on the blog was fun and the best part for me!

You are the bomb! Praying that you'll win this contest but I have to tell you, I'm pretty darn proud of you right where you're at!

Y'all are so sweet! Thanks for your kind words. I am still all giddy and goofy. More than usual, I mean.
