It's Time for Sluggy's Birthday Boring Blog Giveaway!

Ok Peoples!!!
Par-tay Time!

In honor of my birthday I am holding a Giveaway.
It's modeled on my Boring Blog Box Giveaways of last year.  You can go HERE and see what the Boring Blog Box Giveaway was all about in 2010 if you weren't around then.

We start with a box......

As for what will go into the box as prizes, I am going to let everyone who wants to win decide that.

I will post 3 items.  You dear readers get to vote on which 1 of those 3 items you would like to see in the box.  You will have 3 days to leave a comment on that post.  That vote/comment is your entry into the drawing for the box.

When the 3 days are up, that post will be closed and I'll put a new post up with 3 more items.  Again, you will leave a comment on that post which item you want me to put into the box.

We will continue like this until there is no more room for anything else in the box.
Then I'll close the Giveaway, gather all the entries and randomly pick a winner, who will receive the box of Goodies.

But Wait!
There's an extra Bonus Prize!!!
Since we try to be Frugal here, all my prizes have either been freebies or almost freebies I've gathered in my travels, just like last year.

But I wanted to include an extra special prize that was highly coveted but still cost me nothing.
I have a credit card account where I earn points and can turn them in for FREE GIFT CARDS.
So the winner of the Boring Blog Box will ALSO get to pick a $25 Gift Card to the store/restaurant of their choice from this List.....

*American Eagle Outfitters
*Banana Republic
*Barnes & Noble
*Bath and Body Works
*Bed Bath & Beyond
*Best Buy
*Fandango (movie chain)
*Foot Locker
*Home Goods
*LL Bean
*Land's End
*Macaroni Grill
*Old Navy
*Olive Garden
*Pottery Barn
*Red Lobster
*Red Robin
*Royal Entertainment Group(movie chain)
*Sunoco Gas Station
*TGI Friday's
*TJ Maxx
*The Home Depot

Since I have to wait until the winner picks their gift card, there will be about 2 weeks until I get the card and can mail the prizes out, so the winner will need to have a bit of patience. ;-)

The Rules
1. You must be a "Follower" of my blog to enter and still be a Follower if/when you win.  Lookie on the right sidebar and press the big ol' FOLLOW button if you are not already a follower.
2.  Sorry but this Giveaway is open ONLY to those with a mailing address within the USA.  Hate to have to do that but the postal rates outside the country are KILLER.
3. 1 vote/entry per post with 1 exemption.  You can leave more than 1 comment per post but only your 1st vote/comment will count.

The 1 Exemption....You can earn EXTRA ENTRIES this way....
*If you get someone to become a Follower and enter this giveaway you can earn an Extra Entry for each person you bring on board.  You can blog about the giveaway or email people or post about it on a message board or call your neighbor on the phone....whatever way you want to recruit them, I don't care.  Just make sure that they mention in their vote/comment/entry that You(your name here)told them about the blog/giveaway and you get an extra entry that post.

As always, this is not a company sponsored or company supplied Giveaway.  Any costs associated with this Giveaway are coming out of my pocket because I'm just that kinda gal.  Please patronize our blog ads....I'm just sayin'.... ;-)

Here are your 3 items to choose from today....

1. Sarah Michaels Rose Scented Gift Set
2. Avon Naturals Vanilla Shower Gel
3. Tone Cocoa Butter Soap 2 pack

Just leave a comment on this post with your choice of #1, 2 or 3.
Additional praise for me on the anniversary of my birth is welcomed but won't earn you any Brownie points for the Giveaway. ;-)



  1. Happy Birthday, Sluggy!

    My choice would be the Avon Vanilla Shower Gel.

  2. Do you know how gorgeous you are today? Oh, that's right, no brownie points. See how quickly I forget. But I'm saying that as a gay man so it's totally cool. Okay, I'll play along. Who knows? I think that my daughter would love the Avon Naturals Vanilla Shower Gel. How's that.
    I want to wish you the best Birthday ever. Twenty-one is a big deal! Enjoy it!
    Your Friend, m.

  3. Happy Birthday!
    #2 Vanilla Shower Gel

  4. First off, A Very Happy Birthday to you!!!!!

    Ohhhhh, Number 1 sounds lovely. :~) It reminds me of my dear grandmother. She always used a rose scented lotion called RoseMilk.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!! And what a great idea for how to fill up the box and collect giveaway entries - I love it!!

    My vote for today's item would be the Sarah Michaels gift set. (I'd actually vote for the Tone soap, but you already know how much I don't need any more soap.)
