Welcome to my party!

Over at 5 Minutes for Momthe gals are hosting a blog party for us Moms! Woohoo!

We all love a great party right?

So welcome, take off your shoes or boots, there are hand-knit slippers in the box by the door just because I knew you were coming. Would you like a cup of tea? Can I offer you a piece of carrot cake tonight?or some chocolate? My personal fav tea is peppermint and as I blog I am often drinking the stuff! Do you want the comfy chair or should we sit at the table and chat.

Thanks for coming by my newest adventure. I have a hobby that I  love that I would love to share with you. It is contesting! Do you love a giveaway or prize or freebie? I  do! I also love the word FREE. I never enter a contest that costs me money to enter. So far I have had alot of cool wins. I believe I am a lucky cannuck! I enter contests where I really want the win only. This week was a win in the Quest for the Lindt Gold Bunny. I love chocolate! This contest was and is only open to Canadians…go and play and see if you too win a tin of chocolate or maybe that trip to Europe! Talking of great prizes have you seen all the prizes you can win participating in this party??

My personal favorites aren’t open to us Cannucks but are:

1.Kristin at An Ordinary Life is giving away $23 to your paypal acct to celebrate her birthday (#55)

2. A new blog design by Sweet Simple Design. I could of so used this one for this blog here!(#24)

3. A 6 week fitness plan by Go Workout Mom. I am trying to lose weight so this one is another that would of been great for me.

Now for those few that are open to us Canadians

I would really love to win the tea set that Alyson is offering!! I also like the lamb photo frame that Amydeanne is offering.

Now if you are a Canadian visiting and you want to contest well I really recommend two sites Contest Girl and Frugal Shopper and the forums there.

Well hope that you enjoyed your visit…come back soon!

Okay I love to enter contests! But my time is very limited for this hobby of mine. So how do I do it, and still get in at least a few wins each month? First I need to let you know I prioritize. I don’t enter every contest that I could just because. First it has to be for something I want to WIN. I then enter local contests first, then national ones, I rarely go and enter international ones unless it is something I really want like that trip to Disney!

Now how am I able to enter the about 75-100 contests that I enter on a daily basis online? Roboform and Contest Girl . First I downloaded Roboform form and use it instead of having to enter my information manually saving me seconds at each site. Then I visit  one of my favorite sites Contest Girl. By registering there you can use the My Contest section to keep track of what you are entering. I like it alot. Right now I have about 60 contests that I am entering on a daily basis, and then there are my one time or weekly entries.

By using these tools I really do feel like a lucky cannuck just waiting for my wins to come in. Now I am off to visit Don’t Try this at Home to see what works for everyone else.

Photobucket Well who doesn’t like to get something for free? I know I do! This week one of my favorite bloggers is hosting a Bloggy Give Away Carnival. Right now there are over 700 blogs giving stuff away this week! Do you feel lucky? I do! Now many are only open to US addresses but at least 100 or more let us Cannucks participate..

What am I giving away? Something that was given to me last month..a book. I was lucky enough to get it from a Facebook  group I belong to for Canadian readers. The book is an classic and one of those books everyone should read before they die.. The Book is : A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

This is a NEW blog so to win: 1. you must post a comment leaving your email when you do…it doesnt appear on screen but I can find it(or some other way to contact you if you are the lucky winner). 2. You must tell me what makes you feel lucky. Any comments that dont well lets just say your comments will not be in the draw. This contest closes Friday, Feb.1st at 7 pm EST. This contest is open to Canadian and American postal addresses and yes shipping is included. So what makes you feel lucky?

By the way some of you will know me as the writer of Cheaper than Cheap, my Cheap  Frugal blog here on WordPress.
