I don’t normally do two posts in one day but today I had to make an exception. Something pretty amazing happened yesterday and I just had to share my good news.

I’m a Mad Blog Awards Finalist!

Gina Caro Mad Blog Awards I am a finalist in the Mad Blog Awards for Best Thrifty Blog! When I got the tweet from Becky from Baby Budgeting congratulating me on getting into the finals I thought she must have made a mistake.

There is no way on earth that my blog could be in the finals. I didn’t sleep at all last night, random thoughts kept popping into my head like… What am I suppose to wear? What is the nearest train station to the hotel? What if the other bloggers don’t like me? This morning I’m feeling pretty sleep deprived and still in shock. I’m still half expecting an email saying actually we made a mistake!

MAD Blog Awards UK 2015

I just like to say, without getting too over the top and gushy, that I really appreciate the lovely people that voted for me. After 3 and 1/2 years of hard work on my blog, I cannot even begin to express how much this means to me! You have made my week year!


The voting has now opened to vote for your finalists. If you do enjoy reading my blog and my thrifty posts I’d really appreciate your vote.
