This Hip2Save.com Deal was hand-posted on Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 at 3:36 pm.
Did you know that Christmas is only 82 days away?! Although this may seem like a long time, the holidays will be here before we know it. For this reason, I am introducing a new series called Hip2Save This Holiday. This 10 week series will focus on different suggestions to save your sanity ;) , frugal tips, and holiday-focused deals for helping you (and me!) save time AND money this holiday season.
As most of you know, Hip2Save is made up of a wonderful community of readers who are always quick to step in and help others. And in order to make this series successful, I am asking for help from all of you. Plus, you can earn $25 Amazon gift cards (keep reading to find out how!).
I am looking for readers to contribute information focused on the following topics:
* Christmas/Holiday Rituals and Traditions – I am looking to post about rituals that are a different than the usual ones you hear about (for example, I am not wanting to post about wearing special/new pajamas on Christmas morning as many families already take part in this ritual). So if you have a really unique ritual, I would love to hear about it!
* Creative Ways to give back this holiday season – Preferably ways that do not require spending a lot of money. If you pay it forward during the holidays, please share!
* Unique ways to save BIG during the holidays – Do you have an interesting way that you save a ton of money during these months where budgets can easily go haywire?! I want to hear your tips!
* Homemade gift ideas – I would love to see fairly simply ideas that really anyone can accomplish. Also, if these gift ideas require household items and/or products that you can score cheap or FREE with coupons, even better! Please make sure that the gift ideas being submitting are super creative.
Are you interested in contributing? If so, please send an email to holiday@hip2save(dot)com with the Subject Line “Hip2Save Holiday Submission” with the following required information:
(1) First Name and Last Initial
(2) Primary email address that you want us to use to correspond with you
(3) Paragraph(s) focused on any of the topics mentioned above. Correct grammar and punctuation is much appreciated. When appropriate, please provide step by step instructions. The more detailed the post is, the more likely it will be posted on Hip2Save.
(4) Image(s) that may be published on Hip2Save (please do NOT send copyrighted photos). Note that at least one image is required (more than one is definitely preferred). Please make every effort to send clear images.
And here’s where this gets even better! Since the holidays are all about giving, I will be awarding lots of you with $25 Amazon gift cards! If your submission is posted on Hip2Save.com, you will score a $25 Amazon Gift Card AND there is no limit to the amount of gift cards you can earn! However, please don’t submit any and every idea that you have if you are not providing all of the required information listed above.
I can’t wait to check out all of the wonderful ideas that are submitted! And stay tuned, as the Hip2Save This Holiday series will officially kick off this Monday, October 8th. :)
