  • Chief Family Officer’s Third Anniversary Celebration: Giveaway #2 – Heels.com $50 gift certificate


    A few months ago, I was lucky enough to win a Heels.com gift certificate from Shoe Blitz. I have since fallen in love with Heels.com and enjoy simply scrolling through the hundreds (thousands?) of shoes on their site and daydreaming about them.

    So I thought, why not spread the love? That’s why one lucky CFO reader will win a $50 gift certificate to Heels.com. (Gentlemen, feel free to enter on behalf of your lovely significant other.)

    To enter, simply leave a comment with an idea for CFO. For example, you can recommend a change you think would make the site better or suggest an idea for a future post.

    For an extra chance to win, subscribe to my feed via RSS or email and leave a separate comment telling me you have done so (or that you’re already subscribed).

    The giveaway ends at 6:00 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, June 10. I’ll use Random.org to generate a number that corresponds with the winning comment.

    The winner will be announced here on CFO. If I can easily locate the winner’s email address, I will also email the winner. The winner will have 48 hours to claim their Heels.com gift certificate; otherwise a new winner will be randomly selected.

    One entry per type per person. This giveaway is open to everyone.

    Good luck!


    1. More pics would be good, and more product reviews. Thanks!

    2. Heather G says:

      I think maybe more pictures? Maybe brighter or bolder colors/lettering? I really don’t think there is much need for improvement.


    3. Lachelle, Rob & Eliza says:

      I love your site but would love to see a bigger blog header! It’s too cute not to be more noticeable.

    4. Like others have said, your title gets a little lost in the blog. Could you make it stand out more? Otherwise, great blog!

    5. I know this was already mentioned but I also love posts on finances. I rarely learn something new but I still love to read them!

    6. Your site is great. I would love more real advice on how to get my husband to clean more!

    7. It looks great to me – maybe more giveaways? πŸ™‚

      I have to admit this is the first time I have been to your blog. I plan to come back soon, looking over your tags, it looks like you cover a great deal of good ideas for the working parent, keep them coming.

    9. melonkelli says:

      Maybe a “Previous Post/Main/Next Post” set of links above the current post? It’s easier to check out recent posts in order that way.

    10. Hmmm. . . I can’t think of any improvements for the content, but maybe a more colorful look would be nice.

    11. gkstratos says:

      Xtra Credt: email subscriber. Thanks!!

    12. gkstratos says:

      I think there could be improvements to the overall look of the site; might make navigation easier. You deserve a bigger banner.

    13. I love color, so I say jazz it up a bit! (heck, it’s even easier than paint to change if you don’t like it!) the content is great tho!

    14. I’d suggest a better more eye catching background/ layout for your blog. Other than that I love it.

    15. CrystalGB says:

      I think you blog is great. The only thing I can suggest is maybe add some more graphics/photos.

    16. I suggest a better page layout and also more pictures πŸ™‚

    17. Kimberly B. says:

      Well, I’m new to this site, and it looks great to me! But I second the request for a search function!

    18. Maybe a little more color, but other than that the site looks great!

    19. bison61 says:

      enjoy the site -maybe more pictures, and more contests!

      Hi. I’m a new reader. I like your site, but it seems like it needs a little color… even if it was an off white… something not so “clinical” KWIM?

    22. I agree with Milk Mama. A splash of color is always nice. Something soft yet noticeable.

    23. michelle says:

      I think a topic search would be great. Thanks

    24. Sandy M says:

      This is my first time here, and I love it. The only thing maybr\e it needs is a little more color. Great giveaway!

    25. frogfaith says:

      New to your blog and love it! Anything with money saving tips is a help to be. Maybe a clearer listing of topics would help.

    26. Mary512 says:

      You could add a little color, I love nice colorful sites. Great giveaway, thanks!

    27. Mary512 says:

      I am a subscriber also. Thanks again!

    28. I’ve been reading your blog for awhile & really love it. I’m sorry I don’t have any ideas for you, I’m happy the way it is.

    29. I really enjoy your site and all the financial tips. I am always looking for ways to save money and unfortunately, we don’t have CVS where I live. Visually speaking, I would like to see more pictures and maybe a few pops of color.

    30. I am hoping for lots of frugal recipes

    31. And I subscribed by feedreader

    32. megankortepeter says:

      This is my first time to your site so I don’t have a lot of comments but I love the title. Maybe more pictures.

    33. CJW's folks says:

      Family pictures and, always giveaways!

    34. Genevieve P says:

      More pictures? It has a kinda clean and spare look. which isn’t really “me”, but then it’s not my blog, so what does that matter?! : )

    35. emily n. says:

      maybe make your logo banner bigger and add more color.

    36. Cuddle Cottage says:

      This is purely an aesthetic comment – I think your site content is neat – how about making your banner header much larger? Visuals really help to draw a reader in:)

    37. Looks like a great blog, but I would also love to see a bigger header and more pictures. And of course the more giveaways the better haha.

    38. The only thing I might suggest is that I missed the banner at first but it’s cute, maybe just bigger? And maybe a little more color? I’ve enjoyed browsing though and you have good posts which is really what counts. πŸ˜‰

    39. I subscribe to CFO

    40. a change …I don’t know. I think you’re doing a super job and I appreciate all of it. Thanks

    41. Amira M says:

      i like the site but i think it needs just a tad bit of color.. maybe for the side columns

    42. I just subscribed to your blog and I would like to see tips on how to stretch the family budget and of course,pictures.

    43. ablondeblogger says:

      I am a shoeholic so I’m thrilled you’re doing this giveaway! How about featuring a “shoe of the week” that’s both gorgeous and on sale?

    44. I think you’re doing a fab job, Kathy. Keep up the great work!

    45. Christian Kay says:

      Show us the shoes you have bought from heels.com I’ve never heard of it. But what women doesn’t love shoes? πŸ™‚


      Thanks for sharing the love!

    46. Trheel4vr says:

      I’m a new subscriber and so I’m not sure if I have authority to suggest anything, but something I’ll be looking into soon is Once a Month cooking. Have you ever blogged on that?

    47. Trheel4vr says:

      I’m subscribed via Google Reader.

    48. i’d love to join your group but i don’t know how — new to this, so i would say mke it easier for newbies to join/follow directions to join!!

    49. I love giveaways and deals, so maybe more of them?

    50. aspritzofsis says:

      I’d love to see a slightly larger gutter (white space between columns). I have trouble reading the posts with competing text on either side, but then again, maybe my eyes are just getting old.
