Don't miss your opportunity to gather some great tips and tricks from the Cheap Chick, Erin Schneider. Erin is going to take us through her fantastic journey of successfully branding herself as the 'Cheap Chick'. Meanwhile, she'll share her thoughts on how you can find your niche in order to help build your brand!
Between August 28, 2007 to August 27, 2008, Schneider did not spend more than $20 on any single item she bought. There were exceptions – mortgage payments and utilities – but in general, she spent $20 or less on food, drink, clothing, shoes, accessories, entertainment, books, etc. And she blogged about it through the process. She began receiving media attention and was hired on for weekly gigs on Fox 9′s Morning Buzz on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Schneider continues to challenge herself and others to shop with intention, curb impulse buying and score a great pair of shoes for nothing.
