We’ve got three new On the Cheap, and we need you to help spread the word. Tell your friends and family about Orlando on the Cheap, Jacksonville on the Cheap and the beta version of Baltimore on the Cheap. And be sure to visit those sites if you’re planning a trip

Meet our new editors in Orlando and Jacksonville:

laura-perryOrlando on the Cheap: Laura Perry is a native Floridian and Orlando resident of five years who is always planning on-the-cheap experiences, from creative date nights with her husband to outdoor adventures with friends and family. Laura has a degree in communications from the University of Florida and also works as the marketing and media manager at the Nickelodeon Suites Resort.

Belinda-HulinJacksonville on the Cheap: Belinda Hulin never met a bargain she didn’t like. The Atlantic Beach resident trolls websites and ads for discounts, and — as a Louisiana-born Cajun — is particularly drawn to scrumptious deals on great restaurant fare. In addition to her On the Cheap research, Hulin writes feature stories on a wide range of topics and authors cookbooks.  Her latest book is Roux Memories: A Cajun-Creole Love Story with Recipes (Lyons Press).

We’re still looking for a Baltimore editor.

Those sites join Miami FL on the Cheap, Fort Lauderdale on the Cheap, Palm Beach on the Cheap, Florida Keys on the Cheap and Florida on the Cheap, part of our section of Cities on the Cheap.
