Online Giveaways!!

So, over the weekend, my sister and I decided to enter some online giveaways that were ending soon.  I've been sponsoring quite a few items for my business (mostly gift certificates and a few drawings too) and it's great for getting new fans for my facebook site and I get a lot of orders then as well.  So I thought, hey, maybe I could win someone else's things.  It's free to enter and the odds can be quite good sometimes like 1:30 other times more like 1:100 or 1:200, depending on the giveaway.  So far I've won:

*a pillowcase dress for Venily
*lots of hair bows and clips
*2 different envelopes of coupons
*2 different baby blankets (a regular sized one and a crinkle blanket toy)
*crocheted unicorn hat (I'm going to give it to Venily for Easter- she LOVES unicorns and is going to be so excited, just the other day she told me that she wanted to change her name to "unicorn", LOL!!! And she has told me numerous times that she wants to be a unicorn for Halloween next year!)

and I've made deals with other businesses for custom name plates and a crocheted owl hat (that I'm giving to Haven for Easter) in exchange for drawings. :)

My sister has won a TON of hair bows and clips, jewelery, coupon envelope, a few "surprise" items that she doesn't know what they'll be, and a Scentsy product.

And only a few of the giveaways that we entered have ended and announced winners yet, we still have a ton more to go!  Pretty cool, right?  It's been fun and I've won a lot of free stuff that I would never normally be able to spend money on!  I can't wait until this stuff starts coming in the mail- it's like Christmas! :)

My next step is couponing!!!!!  I'm pretty excited about all of the practical stuff I can get free too and we are in DESPERATE need of cutting down our grocery and basic goods costs!!!

UPDATE:  I just won a Valentine's T shirt for Haven w/ her name on it and a matching bow!!!  And my sister won a $40 adult product ;)  that she is giving to me!!!  SOOOO MUCH FUN winning things, haha!!!!


  1. I entered those contest too and didnt win. =(
    The ones where you like the page and then like the sponsor, right?

  2. Yeah! The trick is to enter a ton, lol! :)

  3. I have actually won a bunch more stuff in the last week! I totaled up everything and my sister has won about $250 worth of stuff (she is super lucky) and I've won about $105 and am trading drawings for about $50 worth of stuff on top of that! :)

  4. That's awesome!! Is it only open to US residents, or can Canadians enter too?!

  5. Most of them are open to the US and Canada! I posted my last comment 2 days ago and have already won OVER $100 more worth of stuff, lol! It's a lot of fun! :)
