2017 Summer Reader Survey and Giveaway

Update! The winners have been emailed: Congratulations Dawn, Lynn and Natacha.

It’s time for a survey! I created a reader survey to help me get a better understanding of what you use Simply Frugal for and what information you’d like to see in the future.

To further entice you, I’d love to give three Simply Frugal readers that complete the survey a copy of The Budget Binder Kit that’s available in the Simply Frugal store! To be entered, simply leave a comment below telling me you did the survey. I’ll draw the winners on June 18, 2017.
