Hello, my new Frugal Family!!!! I am so excited to become a part of this world. What you guys manage to accomplish is truly amazing and I want in!
I have a passion for travel that really begun as I spent junior year abroad living in the northeastern part of Brazil. The bug bit and I’ve been globe trotting, or dreaming of it, ever since. Rick has Blessed me over the past 5 years with a free Honeymoon trip to Kauai; airfare and Marriott stay included, 2 round-trip tickets back to Brazil and mini vacations, including Key West, New Orleans, and Washington D.C.
Over the past 2 years Rick has really helped me get my feet wet. I was approved my first 2 credit cards, not without a fight (more on that later), which also included roughly 50,000 bonus points. I did one round of U.S. mint coins, opened 3 Bank accounts, and racked up a total of about 200,000 Frequent Flier Miles.
Now, out of school and working, I have a lot of spare time to learn this system and I am ready for your help! Rick is always talking about the blog and how you guys, his readers, contribute so much to this body of knowledge. I want to do this too!!! Rick agreed to let me be a sort of apprentice or “The Rookie “, in exchange for some overdue organization of the blog making it more user friendly for you and me.
Let the Contest Begin. I want to know your best tips, your expert advice, and travel ideas for any rookie like me just starting out in this game. I will read them all and find a few each week I think make sense for someone just getting into this. The readers who submit my chosen tips will be entered into a monthly drawing to win Free Travel Gift Cards!
Start with how I should organize my file system, what programs I should join,and what you guys are doing in those two areas?
You can post your tips any day of the week as I’ll be keeping up with them. Make sure to include your first name and last name initial along with the Heading Rookie Tips to qualify for the prizes.
Join me every Friday as I begin my journey into your amazing world of travel.
