The Budget Babe on MyFoxDetroit Fox 2 News WJBK





On Cyber Monday, I was interviewed by MyFoxDetroit Fox 2 News WJBK via satellite from New York City to share advice on getting the best online deals for the holidays. Mind you, I had never been in front of a camera before that morning (when I actually ended up recording a whole slew of radio and TV interviews all in one shot—more on that later). To say I was nervous would be an understatement, but everyone I worked with was so professional and kind, it really put my mind at ease and allowed me to focus on my message and, dare I say, have fun. Thank you, Fox Detroit!

Brilliant, Dianna! You sounded fabulous and looked gorgeous! You have a KILLER smile and lovely, lovely manner. Such invaluable information especially at this time of year. I have just caught onto this whole coupon trick and I’m loving it all because of your wisdom. I’m proud of you :0)

Good job on TV! Very high Q rating BB! :-) I was skeptical of the coupon stacking though. Macys.com and some other sites are programmed so you can't. However, Kohl's allows it on some coupons and when it works, its good.
Happy Hols!
