Guys…I’m. SO. Dang. Excited! After months of collaborating with my soul sister Melea from, we have banded together to put on the best money-saving/frugal living conference this world has ever seen! Picture my previous Frugality Boot Camps, but bigger and better (if that’s even more possible!). Now intruding MECCA: Making Every Cent Come Alive

MECCA: Making Every Cent Come Alive, the ultimate frugal living conference

MECCA is the Ultimate Frugal Living Conference. It’s an all day-conference that will be held on Saturday, January 10, 2015 in Sandy, UT (don’t worry, we are working on having a virtual conference available for those who live out of state). It’s the PERFECT time to recoup from the holidays, and get your finances on track for 2015…and the perfect way to do it in ONE day, the FUN way.

Melea and I will not only teach classes all day sharing our own personal secrets, but we are also having TONS of classes taught by some of your favorite bloggers and experts including Jill from One Good Thing by Jillee, Tara from The Dating Divas, Liz Edmunds “The Food Nanny” and more! MECCA classes will teach you about budgeting, finding good deals on anything and everything, frugal travel, talking about money without killing each other, frugal beauty and fashion, getting out of debt, teaching your kids about finances, couponing/price-matching, DIY on a dime, and more.

Want to come? (Duh, right?)
