Contesting and Winning

Sunday, August 30, 2009

You might wonder how contesting fits into my life of simple living and stretching a dollar.Well, I have been entering contests for years- and I have won many nice things in the past.Last year we went to Mexico, ( just before Swine Flu arrived there), and as well, this year have had some nice wins as well. Most contests and sweeps I enter online so they are free, but I do do the occasional mail in ones.I will keep you all posted from here on out on my wins.This month I won a blue ray player and movie collection worth $1,000 from Hershey on an online instant win contest.Also won a year magazine subscription to Tidings magazine and a Country Heat cd from CMT. All wins are most welcome as they are bonuses in our lives, and most times things we don't normally buy for ourselves. I also won an Ipod shuffle this year, which I really was happy about, as I was still carrying around a cassette player on my walks.
So whether you enter a few online contests, ones by mail or in store ballot boxes,take a few minutes to enter. You may be pleasantly surprised when you win!
