My Big News… or 1 of 11 Equals Awesomeness!

Some nice folks at Walmart contacted me recently with an opportunity I just couldn’t pass up! In conjunction with their latest motto – Save Money, Live Better – I’ve been chosen to be one of the Eleven Moms in Walmart’s Money Saving Community Project.

What does this mean? Well to me, it means I get to use a Flip video camera to help vlog* about money-saving tips & advice that might help other folks (Moms, Dads, and Everyone who cares about $aving a little) using YouTube and my blog to get the word out. To you it means that you are among the first to know about this project and to be able to follow my posts about it (as well as the other 10 Moms who will be doing their best to do the same.) Down the road a bit it may have even better perks for you, dear reader, but we’ll get to that!

The project is still in its initial phases, but we Moms just couldn’t wait to share it with you, so that you could go along with us on this trip! We’ll be blogging, vlogging, learning from each other and sharing. We even get to meet each other in October at WalMart‘s Home in Bentonville, Arkansas!! (Yes, I’ll be Twittering it too!)

Throughout the month of August, I will be uploading videos periodically on my YouTube Channel in anticipation of the September launch of Walmart’s official YouTube channel. To stay up to date with my videos I would highly suggest subscribing to my YouTube feed or here at my blog. And if you’re up to it, check out the list of the sites below that make up the Eleven Moms – I know I am subscribing to them all! These ladies rock and I’m honored to be included in this project with them.

The List of Eleven (in no particular order)

~ The Domestic Diva
~ Jessica Knows
~ MomAdvice
~ Classy Mommy
~ Being Frugal
~ Deal Seeking Mom
~ Frugal Upstate
~ Keeping the Kingdom First
~ Coupon Cravings
~ The “Cent”sible Sawyer
~ GeekMommy’s WebLife

So join me if you will in celebrating a bit because you get to go along with me… and I’m raring and ready to go!!

~ Lucretia (aka GeekMommy)

*vlog is a term that means ‘video blog’ – I’ll be using a Flip Mino video camera provided by the amazing folks over at Pure Digital Technologies who totally rockfor helping us out with this!

    I’ll be looking forward to your vlog.

  8. WOOT! How fun. I’m so excited for you. I’ve never been a big fan of shopping at WalMart but when I recently noticed how much I could save by doing so, I gave in and shop there a lot now. Can’t wait to see your vlogs.

  20. This is good news. I read yesterday about someone else and thought there were 11, congrats. I have been to walmart twice in my lifetime. Once was in 1995 in Orlando and then the following April driving across the country saw one on the freeway and got off to shop.

    This might be an incentive to find one here in Los Angeles to shop at. I also like their freebies online and did get uniform shirts for my son online.

  21. NOw I see the list does say 11, but I wss checking on son outside with cats and came back to finish comment. Need to focus on one thing at a time.
