My 100th Post Giveaway!

Well, I can hardly believe it, but this is my 100th post! To those of you who have been reading this blog - thank you so much! I have been having a great time writing it, and I hope it has been helpful to some of you. Please keep reading, and feel free to share it with any friends that you think may be interested.

In honor of my 100th post, I am hosting my first giveaway! This giveaway is for a holiday decor gift pack, filled with decorations and fun items for a number of holidays. But there's a twist: this is a frugal person's holiday gift pack! That is, these are items that I picked up on 75% or 90% off clearance sales this year. These are not items for upcoming holidays, they are items to save for next year!

So the lucky winner will receive a basket of Christmas, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Easter goodies, all of which I purchased on clearance after the holidays this year. I have not finished accumulating the St. Patrick's Day and Easter items, so the complete contents of the pack will be a surprise. However, the ornament kit (Target, 90% off) and the lovely Valentine's wreath (CVS, 75% off) shown will both be included.
The winner will receive a pack of at least 10 different items. This giveaway ends next Monday, April 6, at midnight. However, I will not mail the prize until a week or two after Easter, in order to be able to include clearance Easter goodies.

So here's how to enter this giveaway:



1) Leave a comment below. That's it! I'd love to hear something about you and how you found this blog. Please include your email if it is not in your profile.
For extra entries (only after you've done the first one), you may:
2) Check out the rest of my blog and leave a comment on another post. Then leave a comment here saying that you did so.
3) Blog about this giveaway and leave me the link.
4) Follow this blog on Google or in another reader. If you already follow it, you can get an extra entry for that.
5) Sign up for my email subscriptions (on my sidebar). If you're already a subscriber, that counts.

Please leave a separate comment for each entry!

The winner will be chosen by random number generator next Tuesday. I will email the winner, and he or she will have 72 hours to respond. If I don't hear back by that time, I will choose a new winner.
Good luck, and thanks for entering!

  4. Hi Liz!

    Congratulations on the 100th blog post! That's truly impressive. I've enjoyed keeping up with you and seeing a side of you that didn't come out so much in school. You're pretty inspiring when it comes to good old Yankee ingenuity.

    Love,
    Alaina
