My last post was about ways to save which is fun in and of itself. Another hobby where you can keep your money and maybe win some as well is by entering sweepstakes and giveaway contests.
I am spending some of my holiday vacation time entering a few contests. I always make sure that the prizes are ones I would like to have or to give as a gift. Last year I won a Facebook contest and quite a few smaller contests. It was really exciting to see what the mail carrier would bring each week!
One of the contests I entered is on the blog site www.simplybeingmommy.com for a complete boxed set of Shrek DVDs. I know that my whole family would enjoy watching them! Another contest is I entered is for a beautiful and inspiring hematite bracelet. You can check it out at http://jamielz.blogspot.com . If you're up for a $50 Old Navy giftcard, try your luck at http://thatwentwell.net for a chance to win! Also, I just entered the Tassimo giveaway at the Cupcake Bandits blog site. Now, let's see what other contests draw my interest. . .
