    @Mrs Accountability – Thanks for doing all of that! I have added you to my list that includes all of your entries.

    It will be new posts after the contest started, but don’t worry, you have plenty of time (and posts) to get your comments in! I have been giving everyone 1 entry for each post they comment on from the past. Make sure you check back in each Wednesday for the frugal wedding tips!

    Hi Adam, I have several question to ask. Who will win? The person who have the highest points? Can I get more credit by mentioning the original contest post on several blogs?

    @Invest Money – You get entries to the contest for each thing you do on the site (from the list). So, you can earn as many entries as humanly possible, thus increasing your chances of winning.

    You can only mention the contest on one of you sites. So, pick you one with the most traffic and send them this way!
