A vote for me is more pretty for you

Friends, Romans, fellow penny-pinchers: Want Not was started as a labor of love, and I’m really lucky that it has evolved into something more than that. But at its core, this is something I do because I love it. Because I love you. Because I love pretty shoes, and everyone should be able to afford them.

Savings.com is hosting a small conference for what they’re calling “DealPros” in November. The catch is that you have to be invited, and that happens if enough people vote for you. I am currently in second place amongst other community vote leaders, and this morning I did a little experiment by putting this link on the Want Not Facebook fan page to see how many votes I could get just through that. The tally is pretty good so far (thanks to everyone who’s already voted!), but I’d love to really crank up the votes.

What do you get? If I end up going to Save Up, I’m going to get to hang out with other DealPros for two days, learning even more ways to save you money and help you have more with less. I think it’d be pretty cool.

Will you help me get there? Just click through to vote for me (no registration required), share the link with others, and cross your fingers. I’d love to represent our little community here in Chicago in November. You’re looking incredibly pretty today, by the way.

    I voted for you! Though I’m pretty sure my dh hates you for all the extra things that end up on the credit card bill 😉

    And if you come to Chicago, can we pretty please get to meet you, too? I’ll bring gluten free cookies!

    Just one vote, not one each day?
    Also, you don’t *really* want to go to Chicago in November, but hopefully you won’t have to leave the hotel. 😉

    Gennie’s right – when you do come to Chicago (note the ‘when’, no ‘if’s here!) we should definitely have a meet-up.

    I just voted!!! Thank you for your great blog! I check it everyday 🙂 I normally check first thing in the morning but the other day I didn’t check until bedtime and missed out on the Senseo deal at Amazon 🙁 That will teach me to wait so late in the day for my daily dose of Want Not! Again – THANK YOU!!!

    I voted! Not as lfrequent of a shopper as I have been in the past — but Christmas is coming! Either way I read every day and truly appreciate the savings! Onward and upward to Chicago!
