Here's another installment of......

Here's how it works.....
I put things in the box(mostly what I have gotten for free or almost free)each week and when the box is filled we draw a winner from all the entries received.

Here is what went into the Box today......we have a bit of a theme going on for this week....

1.  1 tube of Aim Toothpaste
2.  1 tube of Aqua-Fresh Toothpaste
3.  1 Colgate Toothbrush
4.  1 Reach Toothbrush

If this is your first time, please go read all the rules for these Giveaways HERE.  *As always, if you are located outside the US, you CAN enter and win but weight restrictions/shipping costs may mean your prize box will contain less items.*

***Time to enter.....You can enter on this Giveaway post until I close this post to entries.

1 entry per person per day on THIS POST.
Leave your name/email addy and a COMMENT on this post.  

This week in your comment I want to hear about whichever Winter Holiday you celebrate, be it Christmas, Hanukkah, the Winter Solstice, Bodhi Day, Yule, Saturnalia, Pancha Ganapati or Kwanzaa.
Do you make a budget for your celebrating and what is your target amount to spend?  How do you pay for what you spend at the Holiday time or do you just not worry about paying for it until next year?
Do you foresee spending more or less than you have in the past years at the Holiday time?

You can come directly to this blog post or find it through the link on the right side bar to leave 1 comment per day.  The current Giveaway Post will be linked right at the top of the side bar.

  1. We celebrate Christmas..... And as of right now I have no set budget for Christmas. But, hubs and I will discuss and decide what to spend this weekend.
    I do have some money put away for Christmas, and it may just have to do.

  2. Added to my blog roll!

  3. I celebrate Christmas in all its glory--lights, food, trees, music. It is not a religious celebration for me, but I still include the religious songs and decorations.

    I try to buy all year long, new or at thrift stores. I found three-pack of Auburn shirts, priced at $40, reduced to $3.88. That meant two for Christmas and one for g-son's birthday.G-daughter is getting a free outfit for her doll and some Christmas socks bought after Christmas last year.

    So, that is the way it goes for the older grandchildren who are getting several flashlights in different sizes and an aluminum bottle...Maybe I will spend $8 on them and used swagbucks converted to Amazon cards for the purchase.

    Everything is nice and cheap or free. Postage to mail these will hurt, but I have been saving coins and the last two or three stamps from each book of stamps for postage.

    Put some choclate in the extra space in the choice.

  4. You are on my blogroll. Chocolate, please.

  5. Of course your on my blog roll...but I never win..sigh

  6. I try and pick most of the stuff up on sale all year long. I also use my gift cards from swagbucks for amazon cards and have a certain amount set aside each month.

    We have a set amount and we stick to it. We might break it a little this bit for the little guys this year since we did get the babies small gifts but we always give them a check for their savings accounts or bonds there first Christmas.

  7. Third entry, blogged about it on my blog.

  8. Hi again! Entering again for Friday! Have a great weekend!

  9. We will be spending much less this year. The kids are older and we have cut many people off of our list

  10. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

    1. In my painful face induced haze I mistakenly deleted your comment Sonya Ann. This will serve as the placeholder for it, when I go to count up the entries and draw a random winner.

  11. We celebrate Christmas. No set budget, but we shop like we do the rest of the year....pretty frugally.

  12. Stopping by to enter one more time. Today is gift shopping for the grandson;.

  13. Our list of recipients is not very long. Kids, grandkids, MIL and Hubby & me.

    I send my family in Tennessee and S. Dakota boxes of jam and they are thrilled. And some jam for coworkers.

    I need to make sure I have enough jam under my bed.

  14. Day before T-day entry. And, I am not getting cooking done...sigh.I don't even have a tragic pain-in-the-face-story, just run of the mill I-cannot-stand-story.

    I do sympathize because I thought my ear was going to fall off when my birthmark was sliced off!

  15. Happy Wednesday! Am making cornbread dressing tonight too"

  16. Black Friday entry. Have a great weekend!

  17. Holy ow! I missed a bunch of days! You would thin I have been busy or something.

  18. Happy Sunday! Off to church and then to spend the day with my grandson :)


  20. I celebrate Christmas and do most of my shopping in November and December. I put together a box of toiletries and stuff that I've gathered all year so she can spend her money on fun things. I spend frugally and look for deals but a little indulgence is part of the celebration for my family.

  21. Okay, one last chance for the box. I am at the end of my free M&Ms and need chocolate put into that box. I do have my Christmas candy, but if I open it, I won't have any for Christmas since I have no self control against Hershey's Kisses and Hershey's Miniatures.


Hey there! Thanks for leaving a comment. Though I moderate it's partly to keep spam out but also partly so that I read every comment. I don't often respond to comments so if you need me to answer you please write me at my email addy posted on my "About Me" page, linked on the side bar.
