My winnings since May!


I meant to start posting these as soon as I started winning...but time got away from me....so I am going to back post from May to now on my winnings throughout blog land. From here on out though, I would like to post monthly. Why am I posting about the thing I am winning? Am I gloating?? NO! Absolutely not! BUT...I want you to see how FUN, how EASY, and how very little time it takes to win a ton of free things for you and your family! My Christmas has been pretty well taken care of thanks to my blog entries! I have had to spend very little money this year which has been a HUGE blessing! I don't like to give the kids, or even me, things that have been won right away....I don't want them to be spoiled. Some of the things...like the vaccuum...were badly needed so I used them right away, but most of the things I have kept in my gift cabinet and I am giving them to the kids...or myself...or someone else special on the holidays or their birthdays, etc. So here is the lowdown:

Not too shabby for a stay at home mom right? Well...you say...you are always on the computer. No...not really. I spend a lot of time on it at night when the kids go to bed...but not all of it is entering giveaways....I do a lot of e-mailing friends, family and church obligations....I also have my family blog and this blog. So...really I am not on the computer ALL that much. I have a special program that makes entering giveaways THAT much easier too! It fills a lot of the info out for me. It is called Roboform. Very handy...and a must if you are going to be entering a lot of giveaways. I want to give credit where credit is due. I have only a handful of blogs that I subscribe to and that is where I do a lot of winning. Once in awhile I will enter giveaways that aren't within my normal "scope"...but for the most part, I stick with the same circle. Here is the list of those blogs I have won from. Most...if not ALL of these have buttons on the left hand side of this blog.

Okay...I guess that is more than just a handful...but that is about it. Don't forget all of the wonderful things that I have gotten for free for reviewing too!!! I didn't count all of that. I have gotten tickets to Mickey Live for the whole family...I have reviewed children's websites that I get free subscriptions to, I have reviewed lip glosses, makeup, deodarant, Fiber Gummies, Eye drops, DVDs, Clothing, etc. Because my number of followers isn't very high, I don't get the HUGE reviews and giveaways...but I love what I can do.

I also do a few surveys here and there, or review something like a TV show. I get compensation for doing that by Target Giftcards, or Amazon giftcards...usually $25 at a time.

So...if you have the time, and want to have fun, make money, win things....try entering blog land....I have really enjoyed it! I bet you would too!
