One of the easiest (and most fun) ways to save money is to win the things you like. Of course it's always a long shot but it's still worth trying! If you get really organized (our next topic) you can win a fair amount of times (I've won more than 20 giveaways in July alone.)
I actually won this prize for the month of July this morning! (so you'll find out my real name probably rather than my pseudonym :-P) But they're holding two more drawings, one for August and one for September so go over and enter! You can submit up to 5 entries!
Paint Your Appliance Pink
"Pink Prize Package consists of a Pink KitchenAid® Stand Mixer, Pink Stand Mixer cover, Pink Silicone Mixer Spatula, Pink Silicone Heart Pan, Pink Measuring Cups and Spoons Set and a Cook for the Cure® Apron. Each pink prize package is valued at $369.97."
Every entry also means $25 is donated to Breast Cancer Research.
I used paint for models and made sure to wash it off while it was still semi wet (ok, a few were completely dry and it was a beast trying to clean it off.) I had to use a scrubby pad for pots and pans and you can still see a tinge of pink on my oven door!
More to come,
