On Friday night during the BlogHer11 conference, I attended the Cheap Sally Dance Party on the roof of Club Stingaree in the historic Gaslamp District of downtown San Diego.

Everyone knows how much I love a bargain and the principle sponsor of this event was, a website where all the frugal lovers can go to to find coupons and promotional codes for hundreds of online shopping websites.  Cheap Sally says they want to be "Your Go To Girl For Online Savings".  CheapSally along with other brands including Lifetime Moms, Sears Style, Kmart and Big Fuel put on a fabulous event.

I was one of 10 Cheap Sally Ambassadors at the Cheap Sally Party
I was chosen to be a Cheap Sally Ambassador during the BlogHer11 conference along with nine other mom and frugal bloggers from all over the United States.  The one thing that all ten of us had in common is our love of a good bargain.

Shannon from the Detroit based blog Glamorous Moms was an ambassador for Kmart 
Audrey from the blog Mom Generations was an ambassador for Sears Style 
The food was wonderful and plentiful and there was a open bar with signature drinks and DJ to get the party rocking. The party was on three floors of the club and the roof level had seating under the stars and Brand Cabanas where guests could network with brands and sponsors of the party and get some swag.

Win $1000,000 a year job with Cheap Sally
So the moment that everyone at the party was waiting for was the announcement of the details surrounding the Cheap Sally "Bring Home the Bacon" Contest. If you are frugal and can prove it in a contest of skills then this is the contest for you.

The "Bring Home the Bacon" winner will earn a $100,000 salary for 2012.  And the best part is that the winner won’t have to quit their day job or relocate. Cheap Sally wants to increase awareness among consumers that everybody can get a deal and nobody should pay full retail. So the winner will earn $100,000 from guest blogging on the Cheap Sally website.

So, do you want to win the best blogger job in the world? 
Getting started is super easy. All you have to do is go to the contest page and create a profile for yourself. The more complete your profile, the better chance you have of earning votes, which determines the contest finalists!

After two phases of voting for top bloggers, finalists from each state will compete in a holiday bargain-hunting challenge in December. Later that month, Cheap Sally will announce the $100,000 guest blogging winner! Competition voting begins September 1. Check the contest page for the official rules and details.
