A Glen Burnie savings maestro who has appeared on "Extreme Couponing" will try her hand Wednesday at another money game: "The Price is Right."
Zadia Hardy, a 37-year-old project manager, traveled west earlier this year with a friend, first to hit Las Vegas. From there, they drove to California to check out "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and one of Hardy's childhood favorites, "The Price is Right."
She was thrilled to be chosen as a contestant.
"I was extremely excited and anxious when they called me to 'Come on down!'" she says.
Hardy, who blogs about saving money with coupons for the site MsCouponista.com, had fun meeting host Drew Carey, but as someone used to getting things from the store for pennies (if not for free), she was thrown by a "Price is Right" standby -- guessing retail prices.
Though Hardy won't spill the beans and tell us how she did, she is saying that she didn't go home empty-handed.
"I can tell you that I made it on stage and won some prizes," she told Insider.
