Wichita on the Cheap was founded in 2009
Kathy & Jimmy Spillman took over the website in 2022 and are very excited to continue helping the community “Live the Good Life for Less”. We were both born and raised in Wichita and are both active in our community. We have a daughter named Ella Grace that you can spot in some of our videos and pictures as we explore all that Wichita has to offer.
If you are new to the Wichita on the Cheap community, it is a website about everything our town has to offer. It provides the community with a local guide for living a good life on a budget. The website covers events, deals, daily happenings, food specials, Kansas travel, and so much more.
The owner Kathy Spillman was previously the Director of Special Events at Botanica, the Wichita Gardens, which is the second largest attraction in Kansas. She was there for 9 years providing the community with experience and helping people create memories. Her most significant event was Illuminations, a holiday light display that brought in 125,000 guests each year for the winter holiday season. Before Botanica she was the Education Director at another popular attraction in Wichita called Center for the Arts which is now called Mark Arts. She had the privilege of working with thousands of students, hosting summer camps, and working with art exhibitions. Running the website brings everything she loves into one site. She is excited to research, write and promote all the unique activities happening around town. She is also a big fan of all the holidays so she is really excited to share all the traditions, events and an all-inclusive guide to holiday happenings. She has been a fan and follower of Wichita on the Cheap for years. She feels so blessed to continue providing our community with a local FREE source for everything Wichita has to offer and how to live a good life.
