How to Plan For The WOW Summit 17, Chicago on a Budget @MomsMeet #WOWSummit

So you’re either grappling with a maybe or you’ve already made the decision to attend the WOW SUMMIT 17, Chicago (OCTOBER 13-14 | ITASCA, IL), and now you’re wondering how to prepare for it without breaking the bank. You’re at the right place. Budget planning is my thing.

“You are not alone in your quest to raise a healthy family.”

To start with, if you haven’t purchased your ticket, do it before the end of May because they’ll go up in price from $89 to $119. You’ll already be on the way to saving money. If you’re a Moms Meet blogger, you probably have enough points to redeem for your ticket (6000 points). If you don’t have enough points, you can earn some easily and quickly by reviewing your favorite products on your blog or doing Moms Meet quests.

Next, you’ll want to reach out to other bloggers who you are comfortable with, who have made the commitment to raise happy and healthy families, like you, to see if any of them want to share a room. Per Moms Meet website, the Eaglewood Resort & Spa, located just outside Chicago is offering summit attendees a special price of $159 a night (price includes the resort fee). Kathy from Reviews by Kathy, our VA and yours truly are sharing a room to bring the price down so we can go a day early and stay over after to check out the sights. Call 877-491-0468 and reference Moms Meet WOW Summit to receive your group rate.

Next up is transportation. If you’re going to be flying in from out of state the closest airports are the O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Midway International Airport. You can compare the cheapest flights to Chicago by using Fare-Finder. You can save up to 80% on roundtrip tickets by comparing their offers. Visit Moms Meet for more information about these airports, and methods of travel available to the resort. We decided to rent a car because we plan to do some sightseeing after the summit and because we’re going early. We want to have a day to rest from our flight and find our bearings. Again, you can save money by chipping in with other bloggers to rent a car. If I’m not mistaken, our car is going to cost $100 for our entire trip and as I stated we’re going early and staying over. It would be even cheaper if you’re just flying in for the 2-day summit.

    1. Next you’ll want to think about having a notepad, micro-cassette recorder or PDA with you. If you’re taking your VA or a guest with you, make a little goodie bag for them to let them know how much you appreciate them. Amazon carries inexpensive PDA’s or even micro cassette recorders. For me, I learn by writing so my choice is always a handy dandy notepad and pen. I’m old school like that.
