20 days for $20



So today is my first day to blog about the campaign deal with UFCU. I have been brain storming with UFCU last couple months with different social media marketing opportunities. They have presence in Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. We are looking to grow our presence as well as running a word of mouth campaign for brand awareness.
Here is what I have proposed and I am in the middle of spending next 3 weeks campaign. I am becoming the campaign of myself.

What?


I have proposed to UFCU that I will go on a crazy diet to see if I can get word out there for their Video Contest.

Crazy Diet?


I am cutting down my next 2 weeks' food budget to $20.09 starting next Monday.

$20.09?


They are running a $20.09 give away campaign to anyone who opens an account with them in the beginning of the school year. I think starting in couple weeks...
I am just trying to prove the case that $20.09 is... big money. It can get you a lot of things, like... 2o days worth of groceries? I proposed UFCU that we should run a diet campaign that I can last 20 days with $20.09 food budget. Now... they have accepted the pitch and now I have to make this happen. MAN!

WHAT DID I GET MYSELF INTO!?

TWO WORDS: TACO BELL
You'll prolly get worms but you could make it 2 weeks on $20

Ramen is cheap but there are other ways to eat cheap and still be healthy! Cheap rice and canned veggies will last you forever.

Hey!
This sounds even crazier and more awesome the 2nd time I read it.

Suggestion? Maybe hit up Taco Cabana Pretty cheap, and they have the salsa bar there, too! (fresh-ish food ftw)
