I'm a Finalist in the 2009 Cheepie Awards!!!




Alright, so have you all noticed the small 2009 Cheepie Awards icon (pictured above) on the left hand side of my site? Well, I've gotten more than a few emails from readers (you know who you are) asking me to post about this new money saving blog award Baby Cheapskate is offering up! Currently, I'm one of the five finalists in the 2009 Cheepie Awards thanks to all of you!

At this time, I'm in second place. If you'd like to vote, then please head on over here to do so! Voting closes December 14th at 10 a.m., and the winning blog will be announced shortly thereafter.

Thanks again to all of you that took the time to email me about this award and left comments on my blog. I also want to shout out a HUGE thanks to all of my amazing readers! You motivate me, inspire me and make me laugh each and every day! You guys are the best!:-)

I've voted every day since it was posted in the comments, an nominated your site too! You really are the BEST! I will keep voting on each computer in my house (it doesn't say you can only vote once per computer, so I keep hitting the back button and voting again. Not sure it will register, but at least 1 vote on 4 computers per day.) Yesterday, my son reminded me, "Aren't you gonna use my computer to vote for your "friend"?" Gotta love it!

fran said...

You guys have really pulled through for Collin. I've voted more than once in a day, but I don't think it took...I think it might be once a day, but that doesn't mean you can't vote from every computer you own. As of right now, the top site has 1513 votes, Collin is now up to 1430...she just needs a little more to be in 1st place, but still keep voting so we can keep her there until 12/14. It just goes to show you what we can do when we stick together...way to go, ladies.

Columbus Grocery Deals said...

I just moved you from 34% to 35%! Woo hoo! :)

Everybody be sure you do not just enter her site, I am not sure if that counts as a vote by clicking on the site by the picture. I am pretty sure you have to click the little cirle by her name and click vote. KEEP VOTING!!

She saves us alot of money and she has made this christmas great for my family this year I am voting for her and alot of my friend in Facebook are voting for her even though they never have seen her blog lets get the word out and help her win!!

Anonymous said...

Swaggrabber is beat her place now.
Come on everybody!! We can make it happen!! Vote for Collin!!

Kristin said...

Sadly I don't think Collin's gonna win this one. Swag Grabber must have the same person voting over and over for her. I looked at Swag Grabbers site and she doesn't have nearly as many followers as Collin (just based on the number of comments made on posts). I bet if everyone was limited to one vote Collin would win cause I'm sure she has more UNIQUE votes than Swag Grabber. I did my part though and voted like 20 times. Good luck!

Elaine said...

I voted!!

Anonymous said...

so sad that Collin might not win this one. I've been voting and voting all morning and I also have lots of friends voting for her. I think that someone doesn't like Collin's success. I think they are jealous because she is the best blog out there and they would rather see Swag Grabber win. I think its wrong because Collin has way more followers then Swag Grabber, how do you explain that one?
I'm going to keep on voting

Krisin, that bi#@%!! darn them! Cmon folks! We gotta give Collin a chance for all her wonderfull help and cost savings!!

Never tell me the odds! lol

Time is on our side! Vote till the fingers bleed I say!. For all Collin and other bloggers (respect) have done for us, this is the LEAST we can do for her!

Pami said...

just voted! Collin - thanks so much for all you do. I can only imagine how many people benefit from your posts. The adrenaline high of savings may come and go... but it's your great attitude and joyful spirit that are truly contagious!

I really hope you win. :-)

I just recently discovered HipToSave. I've been following SwagGrabber for over a year. I think both sites are awesome.

But some of you ladies need to get a grip! Kristin, do you really think "one person" is voting over and over to give SwagGrabber a huge lead? Surely your army of HipToSave followers aren't being outdone by just one person! C'mon, no one likes to lose, but no one likes a sore loser.
