First Ever Giveaway!

Charlotte@Living Well on the Cheap  —  May 31, 2011 — 26 Comments

This week marks three months that I’ve been puttering away at my little corner of the blogosphere, and I feel like things have been going swimmingly thus far. Despite all the hours I’ve spent working and writing, y’all are the ones who deserve the credit. The truth is that a blog is nothing without readers, and I’ve been really overwhelmed with the number of people who have subscribed or become regular visitors already. It means so much to me that you take a little time out of your day to check in on what I’ve been up to, and I’m  flattered by each of you who has left a comment or reached out to me personally. To show you how much it means to me, I’ve sprung for a little thank you gift.

One lucky reader will win a $50 gift card to your choice of one of my three favorite stores–Pottery Barn, Z Gallerie, or Crate & Barrel

Here’s how to enter:

  • Leave a comment on this post with the words “You’re Welcome!” (so I can be sure you took my thanks to heart) by 8pm Central on Thursday June 2nd.
  • If you can spare a moment extra, please give me some feedback on how I’m doing so far. Constructive criticism is welcome, and if you’d like to provide your feedback privately you can email me at
  • Check back Friday to see if you’ve won!

My goal here at Living Well on the Cheap is twofold:

  • To provide a creative outlet for myself
  • To inspire others

Am I achieving that goal so far? Is there something I can do to make the site or my posts more accessible, interesting, or useful? Is there something that you’d like to see more often, or less often? I can dream up projects and write about them all I want, but unless I’m inspiring others I’m only halfway there. Y’all are a crucial part of this endeavor, and I’d love to hear your input. Thank you, again, from the bottom of my heart, for being here. Y’all are amazing!

Giveaway will close Thursday, June 2nd at 8pm Central Daylight Time. One entry per email address is permitted. Winner will be selected using and announced on Friday, June 3rd in a separate post.

    I read every blog you post as it pops up on Facebook. My hubby and I continue to work on our new home, and you give me some great ideas as well as making me feel like I can tackle just about anything!

    You’re Welcome!
    And Thank You!
    Caroline told me about your blog when I was complaining to her that I have a spending problem, and I’m so glad she did! You’ve given me so many good ideas for my own house that don’t require much spending, which is exactly what I need in my life right now!
    You Rock!

  14. You’re welcome! I love reading about your adventures in decorating. It reminds me of the years I spent moving from port to port with my Navy husband. I had to make a home in some interesting places with limited resources. Love to you…Aunt Julie

    You’re welcome!
    Charlotte, I think you are amazingly creative. I especially love the projects and “how-to”s you post because the step-by-step instructions are so easy to follow (and your finished products are very inspiring). Keep up the great work :)

  16. You’re welcome! I’m fairly new to your blog. I saw a post on the rug you made for your dining room. Since then I’ve subscribed to your blog and have been loving it. You’re very creative and I enjoy the changes you have been making. So blog on. You’re doing great!

  17. You’re Welcome Charlotte!

    I love your blog and how much personality is in your posts! You have inspired me in so many ways to make my home more my own than my landlords. You are so creative! Keep it up and I look forward to many more posts to come.

  18. You’re Welcome! I just found your blog today!! I just happend to click on your name in a comment on Bower Power. LOL. So far I’m loving it! I want to come back and look around more but from what I have seen, I like that you make things look good without spending a ton. And most importantly, I think you have your own style and you aren’t copying YHL or Bower Power because it seems like that’s what most new blogs are doing. Keep up the good work! I’ll be back!

  19. You’re welcome! I just started reading your blog 4 days ago and I’m already hooked and have shared with numerous people! I myself have just invested in a bungalow in downtown Orlando built in 1925, so I will be referencing your blog frequently as I take on the task of decorating/making the house a home. You’re doing a great job, and keep up the good work!


  20. I’m a new reader of your blog that I found off another blog. I really like your blog because you give a lot of great tips. Keep up the good work!

  21. I really like your blog and have commented off and on. I feel like I’m getting to know you which is great fun. Since your Mom is one of my cousins and yet I have never met you, it is nice to have this cyber-connection. Keep up the good work. At the risk of sounding like I’m about a hundred years old, it is refreshing to see you “younger folks” thinking of creative ways to make your world attractive and more comfortable. I’m so glad you can make such good use of things that are used or cheap. Like the old song says “every thing old is new again”.

  22. You’re welcome!!!

  23. You’re welcome :)
