As I mentioned in my "not ME!" Monday post, this last week or so has seen me being somewhat obsessed with giveaways and sweepstakes. To me they've always been kind of like the lottery for we thrifty type, with the same sense of "fingers crossed, maybe this one is it!!" potential but without the price tag.
So, for this week's Friday Frivolity I thought I'd pass on a few of my favorites. Have fun, and as they shriek on Wheel of Fortune, BEEEEEG MONEYYY!!! ;P
There are constantly zillions of "instant win" sweepstakes available from different companies, from Deer Park to Herbal Essence, from Caress to Honey Nut Cheerios, but the only current ones I've actually won anything off of so far are the Pace and Mars instant win games. I've actually won three jars of salsa from the Pace game (the promotion has been running for a while) and I won a pack of M&Ms from the Mars instant win... so nothing earth-shattering thus far, but still fun. In the past I've also won free Kraft products as well.
On a "green" theme, my favorite blog giveaways currently would have to be the environmentally friendly Feelgoodz Flip Flops over at Condo Blues (ending Sept 9th), the EcoUsable stainless steel drinking bottles over at Me And My Boys! (ending Sept 8th), and the reusable handmade produce bags over at Audrey's Giveaways (ending Sept 5th). Awesome products, all of them -- it would be awesome to have all of them. In the past I've won several blog giveaways, one for a CD, another for a blog/life makeover, as well as others for a box of Maggie's soapnuts (a natural laundry detergent) and a set of international spices and sauces too. Needless to say, the odds are better on these kinds of contests then they are in nationally sponsored ones.
A couple of other fun ones are a Catherine MacClellan CD giveaway over at Muruch (ending Sept 11th)... and a coffee giveaway contest (with a free MP3!) from Cafe Bustelo coffee (ending Sept 15th).
Have you won anything lately? Have you tried to? You never know!
