Saturday June 25, 2011 / 11:00amFrugal Festival Food!
How was your experience?
I concur with the other reviewers who liked, but did not love, this event. I loved the handouts! The food vendors provided generous and delicious food samples and the VIP swag bag was well worth the $20 ticket. If I had just sampled the food, taken my bag and left, I would have had been completely happy. However, I did, unsuccessfully try to stay and make an event of it. Other than 1 or 2 presentations, there really wasn't much to do. I had hoped to walk away a better informed and organized shopper. Instead, I picked up a few good tips on frugal websites and that was about it. Not a good investment of time (part of my frugal bliss equation). The Bargain Babe is charming and I really think that the event would benefit by more of her presence and perhaps a frugal based discussion moderated by her. The intention was a good one but the overall event fell short of expectations.
