* This May Giveaway Box of goodies is open to any and all readers WHO HAVE NEVER WON A  GIVEAWAY. 

There is a limit of ONE ENTRY PER NON-WINNER YET PERSON PER DAY for this Giveaway.  Come back every day and enter though!

Please tell me in your entry what your big plans are for June...........if you can and what do you can........your best buy at the grocery store last week........your best money saving move.......or something random about yourself that we don't know.........that sort of stuff.
No boring "enter me, thanks" entries.  Be creative!

I'll leave these giveaways open until Friday, May 31st at 11:59 pm Eastern Time. On June 1st  I'll mark all valid entries on slips of paper and have Ex-College Boy draw the winner.

*Please note these rules*
I'll post the name/ID of the winner on this blog on June 1st and that person has 48 hours from the time stamp on that post to contact me privately via email(my email addy is listed on my "About Me" page, as well as on my side bar).

If I am not contacted via email, I'll attempt to contact the winner via the email they supplied with their entry(or gave me to add to the Giveaway Data Base)and if that email is not responded to within another 48 hours I'll pick another winner.

Disclaimer--This giveaway is open to those with mailing addresses within the US only.  As the cost of postage to foreign countries has gotten too high I am sorry to say I can no longer afford to mail boxes outside the US.  These giveaways are not sponsored by any companies.  I pay for it all(the cost of items given away and the postage to mail it all)out of my own pocket.


Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you in your comment.

If you're not a registered Blogger User with your contact information on your User page, please put your email addy in your comment or email me your email addy privately when you leave a comment so I can get a hold of you. If your Blogger associated user profile is a GOOGLE one with those Google Circles nonsense I CAN NOT CONTACT YOU as Google Circles doesn't show your contact info.

If I can't contact you then you can't win.  I am still having to disqualify entries due to this issue and I sure don't like doing that.  Thanks!

So let's get the MAY Giveaway started.  Good Luck to all you non-winners!



  1. June will be dedicated to gardening and enjoying the weather since here in Wisconsin we only get nice weather for like 2.3 days a year :-) marthicafer at

  2. Having just received a Sluggy box this is well worth the post!

  3. I garden and therefore I can. So far this year I have cleared out my freezer making Peach Vanilla Bourbon Jam and I got a great eal on pinea after Easter and canned it. I can a little this and that depending on the garden and various deals. My plan this year is tomates, sal, dilly beans, lemon rosemary beans and jam. I love these giveaways. cheapohmom at

  4. My son said to me the other day "you know you are an adult when you want socks for your birthday" - I guess I'm and adult because although I will certainly EAT the candy, my eyes went directly to the toilet cleaner and toothpaste :) No big plans for this month - school is ending and my volunteer time is over for summer, LOVE to garden but really can't until I get my knee replacement...guess it will be getting stuff done around the house and working on Christmas gifts. I did get a good buy at Smart & Final today - a big pack of pork chops for 99 cents a pound - too bad they only had 1 left, and a HUGE seedless watermelon for $2.99.....if it were by the pound it probably would have been $30 :).

  5. I just got the most beautiful, heavy duty waterproof down vest at Eddie Bauer today...regular price $199 and after sales and coupons, $35! I put in a garden this year after a three year hiatus so am really looking forward to fresh veggies - especially cukes! stacey66 at comcast dot net

  6. I am not entering as I just won a box a few months ago! Just wanted to say ENTER! Sluggy does an excellent job with these goodie boxes and they really are a treat to get in the mail. Plus her blog is something I look for most every day! Take care.

  7. can i enter an entry a day? if yes, then here it is mine for today!! i hope i win, since i would love to get some prizes and share them with my family!

  8. I"m BACK! After several years of not planting any vegetables, this year I have a tomato garden in 5 gal. buckets. Some of the seeds that I planted are seeds that I have saved from the last tommie toe tomatoes that my Daddy grew in his last garden in 1979. Yes, 1979! Some of the seeds sprouted and are now healthy looking little plants. This means so much to me and my sister. She visited this Memorial Day from Louisiana and I shared some of the tommie toe plants with her. We can hardly wait to have some of our Daddy's vegetables. Penny S.

  9. I used groupon and local flavor when going out to eat to save money.

  10. I spent last weekend running a garage sale to make a little money off of our old stuff. We made $200 to help with a vacation to visit family in MIchigan. Thanks, the box looks great!

  11. We are gearing up around here for school ending, and softball is still going. Keeps us all pretty busy!
