Giveaway: Book – 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget

If you missed it I reviewed “10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget“ from the writers of WiseBread last week. This a great reference for saving and getting you started on personal finance. I enjoyed the book enough that I want one of my loyal readers to enjoy it as much as I did.


This is a great opportunity for me to giveaway my copy of the book to one lucky reader. This is my first contest so bear with me as I work the bugs out. I won’t be posting any videos of my selection process but rest assured it will be randomly selected using the ever popular

Sure, I’ll enter. Why not with a 50/50 chance of winning at this point, so far?
