Our first Pay it Forward WINNER IS…

The kiddies had a blast picking a lucky number and we are all happy to announce that Megan over at InfertalMyrtle is the winner of the cool Revlon nail kit I got for.. well actually in the end CVS paid me to take it out of the store!

She is as too cute and that hair, oy! And girls her hubby kind of looks like Jake Gylenhal (I’m sure I miss spelled that, miss spelling that is my nickname!).. she just got her blog into a three column format and is really proud of herself. Go check her out! Besides it’s good Kharma to send congrats..and the box has yet to find a home. Don’t forget to keep reading. I’m SURE I’ll add some great stuff to the Woo Hoo box this weekend (if I can brave the cold).. AND NEXT FRIDAY I’ll have a guest poster AND another Pay it Forward giveaway.. she is a gold mine when it comes to saving money!

Woo Hoo in a box? (my bloggy giveaway)

I’ve been trying to come up with an original idea for my next giveaway. Not that I don’t love things like Target cards, cute kids couture, bling and books. In fact I TOTALLY dig all those things! And to be honest I’m a cheap date when it comes to winning. The prize is simply gravy, just the winning does it for me:-)

But I wanted to do something different. So here it is… drum roll please

The BIG WINNER will get a grab bag (actually a box) containing a sampling of my weekly “woo-hoo” (the sound I make when I get the monster deal) moments from the whole month of January. YEP that means a minimum of four and if I know me EVEN MORE items.

So what the heck am I talking about? Since I started the whole coupon game, I’ve gotten really addicted saving BIG bucks. It has gotten so bad that it makes me sick to buy anything full price (not a bad thing). An interesting thing I’ve found is that most anything worth buying you can get for a buck.. or LESS! Accept of course shoes but that’s an obsession for another post.

Here is good teaser.. so far the box contains:

1 bottle of Arm&Hammer Essentials cleaner a green product for all surfaces in a reusable spray bottle
1 full sized bottle of L’oreal kids shampoo
1 Airwick Freshmatic starter kit (Vanilla Passion scent)

And from my very own hands (as in I made it) a bar of 100% organic lavender, chamomile and flax seed exfoliating goat’s milk soap. Wow that was a mouth full! It is the sure fire cure for dry winter skin. I know this because I made it to deal with my own scales-ala-jack-frost.

Stay tuned I’ll post more steals as I get them and put them in the Woo Hoo box.

I’ve devised three devious ways to enter. Okay so they are more like common ways but it sounded good. I had planned to use our good buddy Randomizer to pick the winner. However my kids donned protest gear and picketed my computer desk for the right to pull the name out of a hat. I will, of course, photographically document the selection in the interest of transparency and fairness (and at Grandma’s insistence, she thinks getting your picture online is like being famous).

Now on to the “how to” portion of our program.

1. For one entry leave a comment.. easy peasy one two threesie

2. For 2 MORE entries follow my blog, you can of course put on your big green meanie panties and dump me after the contest, if you can live with yourself.

3. Blog about me and link back here for 2 MORE entries .. I just LOVE to be the topic of conversation and the center of attention (but try and keep it nice cuz I’ll read the links!)

And for a BONUS entry… pay it forward. Nominate a winner (in a separate comment on my blog). Tell me something about your nominee. I will give you 2 entries for this and also give them a chance at the prize.

I can’t wait for this weekend’s shop-a-palooza.. who knows what will end up in the box.

The final day for entry will be the 29th of January at 6 p.m. eastern. The winner will be announced on the First of February along with the final list of the contents of the Woo-Hoo box. Wooo Hooo
