MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Walmart Canada has declared May 2 its own
national day of savings, to bring some fun to budgeting and saving.
To kick off the day, Walmart Canada will host the first-ever Frugal Heroes
Challenge, where bloggers from coast-to-coast will find cost-effective
solutions to every day budget challenges. Canadians are invited to join the
Challenge, share their own budgeting tips and follow the action on

"The Frugal Heroes Challenge brings some fun to budgeting and saving and is
