This week Jillian F has won 12 months membership to the Savings Vault with this great hint:
Free swimming lessons
I am saving a fortune on swimming lessons for my children! Coming into the summer season, I was keen to get my kids back in the pool and swimming confidently. The closest swimming pool which would cater to my kids that offered lessons however was over 70km away and was going to cost $360 for 10 lessons for three kids for the term. So I did a little research and came across a fantastic website called uswim.com which offers free swimming lessons plans and instructional videos. I decided to take on the challenge to teach them myself. Fortunately I have a friend who has a pool with a step on the edge, so each week I download the new lesson plan and do my own lessons with the kids. The kids love it and I see it as a great bonding opportunity. Plus it's completely free - even we had to do it at the local town pool it would only cost a few dollars in comparison!
The best way to win a membership is to write helpful, interesting, unique and error free hints. You need to include how much money you saved, how you saved it, what you did and how much you paid. The more detail you provide the more likely you are to win a 12 month membership.
You do not have to answer all the questions to enter the competition. Each hint entered is judged separately. If you send 5 hints. They will be considered 5 separate entries. Which means you have a much higher chance of winning by entering one or two top quality hints than if you entered twenty brief, vague tips. Quality is everything!
If you do not have an answer to a question, or it does not apply to you, please leave it blank.
Thanks for giving it a go. Good luck!
