  1. TBH, the marketing position’s description is not at the assistant level, its more manager/director level experience and duties. This is the kind of promotion I’m waiting on for my real job (I’m at the Sr. Coordinator/Analyst level right now). Good luck to you, Jordan, and future FCF personnel!! Awesome this site is growing so much! xoxo

  2. I hope this means we will be able to get a daily email with even more great ideas and more fun ways to save. It is the highlight of my day to get home from a long day of teaching and read my emails from you, Jordon. I don’t know how you have been getting it all done but I know your site has blessed and inspired so many. I have loved the weekly challenges in January and some days are tough due to unforeseen circumstances but it seems that is the very day I get an email from Fun Cheap or Free and it is all I need to get more creative and over the hurdle. I can’t wait to see what is ahead.

  3. Darn my not living in Utah, has failed me once again! I would be perfect for marketing manager! If I hadn’t just gone back to work I’d be all over it! I even have a graphic design degree =[ Maybe I’ll just apply for content creator =[

    • Yes apply for everything!! Shoot, you have a full-time job already? Hmm..just let me know if you decide to cut back hours, and I’d love to chat 😉

    • No need for a degree over here! If you can do the job, I don’t care what your background is…so apply! It’s part-time anyway, so it might work well with school 🙂

  4. Wow, if I could do all of that, I’d have my OWN blog making tons of money! LOL 🙂 Seems a bit unrealistic to find that in one package, good luck on finding a manager! Love your blog!!!

    • You’ll be surprised! It sounds daunting on paper, but it’s really not as crazy as it sounds 🙂 Thanks for reading!! XOXO

    • Thanks so much for the feedback! I got a call from my hosting company saying it was really slow the last 24 hours and it might be time for an upgrade. Will you tell me if it resolves itself in the next few days or if it’s still bad? Thanks so much!
