Oh, did you think this is about being frugal with your ex-spouse? Sorry, that would be some other blog. I wrote about "the Ex", a Toronto abbreviation for "Exhibition".
My DeHaan Services site often previews cheap or free annual events in Toronto. "Enjoy the CNE on the Cheap in 2013" differs because the Canadian National Exhibition advertises heavily and it is not cheap.
But then I found some excellent discount ticket offers. I also knew some other tricks already. So that was enough material for my article.

One Writing Tip "on the cheap"
Here's my new slant on this tip.
Everything started with noticing that the CNE offers online admission tickets. A bit of idle curiosity led me to wonder whether there was a discount. It was not easy to find "how much is it worth" and "how do I qualify".
That's when I realized that there was enough valuable material for an article. If it took me "that long" to answer the question, my readers would find it helpful to read my synopsis before doing their own research.
Your articles might not involve comparison shopping (as this CNE article did); but if you can save readers time and effort related to a topic, they should reward you by reading your next articles.
Thanks for reading about visiting the Ex on the cheap.
