1st Giveaway of 2015!

It's time for my first Sluggy's Boring Blog Box Giveaway of 2015.

As suggested by various readers in 2014 this Giveaway box will be chocked full of "Items that Come in Handy During the Winter Time" stuff.
Check it out..........


Contac flu & cold medicine
Yogi Throat Coat tea
Vaseline lotion
Box of facial tissues
Box of hot chocolate
Hall's cough drops
Excedrin migraine pills
Alba tropical fruit lip balm
And then two items to help you FEEL better--
Mary Kay body smoothing scrub
Flipz dark chocolate covered pretzels

*I'll replace the box of hot cocoa pictured with a new box before I mail it out.  The box I pulled from the stockpile is past it's "freshness" date so it will be replaced. 8-)

I'll leave this giveaway open until January 28th, Wednesday, at 11:59pm.  The next day I'll put all the valid entries into a container and draw out a name and that person wins.

There is a limit of ONE ENTRY per Day by leaving a comment on this blog post.

To get a BONUS entry, you can do this once---

Post about my Giveaway on your own Blog or on Facebook with a link to this post.  This will earn you 2 additional entries for each action.  Please leave 2 additional comments on this blog post for each additional Bonus entry. 


 Disclaimer--This giveaway is open to those with mailing addresses within the US or Canada only.
If you are in Canada, you will receive a smaller box of goodies, as the shipping rates internationally are ridiculous and I am not taking out a mortgage on my house to pay to ship this stuff.  ;-)

**
If you need this shipped to Canada, I'll have to change the box and it's contents a bit.  I can ship a plain box weighing up to 4lbs. via 1st class mail, which, while more than the flat rate Priority to US addys, is still affordable.  These prize boxes usually weigh 7 or more lbs. when full, so if the winner is in Canada, I'll let them pick and choose which of the items they prefer sent in their box, until the box weighs 4lbs.  I hate to have to do this(not ship ALL prizes to them)but I would hate it even more to exclude them totally from entering the giveaway.

***NOTE***
Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you in your comment.  If you're not a registered Blog User with your contact information on your User page, please put your email or email me your email addy privately when you leave a comment or something so I can get ahold of you if you win. If I can't contact you then you can't win.  Thanks!

So let's get this started!

  20. If I win, I will donate some of the items to DF's stash o' gifts. He's being "honored" at a Yup'ik Eskimo potlatch, which means he has to give away a ton of useful household items. (Think: Hundreds and hundreds of dollars' worth.)
    Tissues, hot chocolate and other items sound pretty useful to me.
    (The chocolate covered pretzels sound pretty delicious to me. They won't make the cut.)
