Newsletter for working women
Working women in North America -- from all walks of life
In our enewsletter and archived online.
First -- you're just writing an article for the newsletter -- not the whole thing. I'm just looking to give them some quick, smart tips for how to save money and stretch their paycheck ... which pretty much everyone needs nowadays. This article focuses on saving money at the grocery store ... while still getting healthy, quality food.
The working title for the newsletter article is: Grocery Store Budget Stretchers"
I really don't care what the tips are -- my guess is that there could be hundreds. However -- you need to keep it down to a handful of really good practical ones that make a lot of sense. And, remember not everyone is buying for a family: so make sure you write tips that work for the single person ... the home with only two ... and the home with a big family.
Get personal -- a little humor goes a long way ... and be very conversational. Write as though you're talking one-on-one with a really good friend.
250-600 words (could go longer ... but doesn't need to)
*Must offer some practical tips
*Content must be original ideas.
*It’s fine to quote a real-life person struggling with this issue -- but we'd prefer such quotes give a limited attribution ... no last name! (e.g. "Mary, a single mom from Peoria says ...) Or -- if quoating a famous person -- give the specific quote and source you acquired the quote from.
