It’s my blog birthday and I am giving away $200…

by Jill Bender on June 1, 2012

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed.

Thank you to everyone that has supported me and entered this contest.

Winner Info:

birthday winner 1024x262

200

 

It’s my blog birthday and I’ll celebrate how I want to!  On my one year blog birthday I gave away $100 so it is certainly fitting that for year two that I give away $200, right???

Whew, time flies when you’re having fun!

I cannot believe I have had this blog for two years. It seems like just yesterday when I woke up one morning to discover that I had purchased a domain name the night before. icon smile True story.

My goal from day one has been to help others to be straight with their money. To get on track if you’ve fallen off, to stay on track or just enjoy with what you do have.

My first project on the blog was my get ahead guide.  And the goal of that was to show you that you can find your way you just have to put some work into it!

My second project was to teach you all how to save money with coupons. And so I wrote the virtual coupon workshop that teaches you how to coupon, where to find them and how to actually save money with coupons.

I owe all of it to you my loyal friends. Those who come back to me day after day and engage with me. Celebrate with me, commiserate with me.

It is you, new ,or been with me since day 1, that I want to reward!

Enough of the schmoop, right? And on to the part where you can win $200?

I’ve decided that I would like to give away $200. I’d like to give it to the winner in the form of a gift card (where possible). If you want $200 for groceries I can do that. A massage? A gas card? Walmart? Target? A restaurant? Or even a $200 Visa card to spend as you wish. If you win, you choose.

Muy importante deets…

Because I’m rewarding my loyal fans, the entries are largely going to revolve around your engagement with me! icon smile

Ps. your coupon database is awesome.
I will be using it for sure.
I love the idea of typing in an item and having the coupons showing up.
Makes it much easier then looking through list for the product you want.
Thanks for that! =)

29 Amanda Elyard June 2, 2012 at

My favorite post is this one because I love the idea of winning $200! :)
If that doesn’t count I really liked the one in about piggy bank savings because I do that-only spending bills and saving all the coins. It does add up.

How did I find you? I do not remember! It was when my husband was out of work, money was tight, and some search (maybe on Google, maybe elsewhere) turned up the Single Mom blog.

50 Dee June 2, 2012 at

Since I remember your 1-year anniversary, I know I’ve been following you that long. And my husband has been back working about a year and a half, maybe, so I’ll go with that!

51 Dee June 2, 2012 at

Favorite post. Can I have two? I loved when you got all emotional and Super-mom-ish when Mrs. Romney made a comment about understanding working women. And I also loved the post after you were featured on eBay because you convinced me to start selling on eBay (my first week of auctions end tomorrow!).

P.s. it’s your Mexican food I love the best, so along with all the money saving tips, I hope you’ll continue sending those!

June 3rd – I tried your salsa recipes because I’m a sucker for any recipe with less than 6 ingredients! Yum!

97 C R Williams June 3, 2012 at

Loved your recipes but I have yet to try any.

98 Jennifer Marie June 3, 2012 at

6/3 I love that you put recipes on here, but I have not tried any. A goal of mine is to eat at home more and not eat out as much and then I will hopefully be using some of your recipes!

105 laura ari June 4, 2012 at

Your tip about deciphering want vs. need is a tough lesson to teach kids!

106 Jennifer Marie June 4, 2012 at

6/4 You had a post a long time ago speaking about lowering electric bills. I remember that one being most helpful.

107 C R Williams June 4, 2012 at

What you need to know about 401k matching is more helpful.

108 Cortney B. June 4, 2012 at

Menu planning and batch cooking. It’s so much easier to stick to my grocery budget if I have a menu planned.

136 Mari June 4, 2012 at

I like the Week 11 – Food shopping at scratch and dent stores post. Shopping the slightly bruised selection is a great way to save money.

137 laura ari June 5, 2012 at

I think your blog is great. What would I like to see? Coupons and ways to save money are always on the top of my list. How you manage to get along and connect with your teen would also be great. I’m always looking for ways to relate to my oldest. Seems like he’s from another planet sometimes! :-) (or maybe I am…)

138 C R Williams June 5, 2012 at

I would love to see more money saving tips and coupons.

139 Jennifer Marie June 5, 2012 at

6/5 I would like to see more of your time schedule. How do you get everything done…you must be very organized. I only have 2 kids and I feel as though I am pulled in every single direction-not sure how you do it. My kids are still young and not even involved in much. You go girl!

140 Heather June 5, 2012 at

I just have to say, I found you the round about way and cannot even remember! I think it was a google search for budget info/single moms. Saw your blog, saw that you were in Denver and signed up faster than I could really type my email in! I’ve only been following you for a few months, (maybe March-ish?) but I adore your posts and find them reassuring in the life of Single-Mom-dom! My favorite post so far is the “Realistic Goals” for budgeting. It helped me focus and get my head on straight when I left an abusive marriage. Financially, it’s terrifying – but your blog has helped me focus, keep my big-girl-panties on straight (i.e. no twists!!!) and things are going fantastic. You are good peeps, and I love reading what you come up with. Someday, I’m going to corrall you for coffee or tea, and pick your brain. Till then, I’ll just comment, “like”, share, etc. and toot your horn to the general public!

141 Heather June 5, 2012 at

I almost forgot …. I would love to see more organizing tools. Like templates or something. Maybe I should go hit up your pinterest. I love it when you post local stuff, to me that is awesome – and maybe coming up with a top 10 free, Or cheap activities for different groups. I.e. dates, families, little kids, etc. So many of us want to keep our little guys entertained but are strapped for the budget!

142 Jodi Bradshaw June 5, 2012 at

June 5th: I would like to see more about how you manage everything in your life by yourself. Sometimes it gives me tips and sometimes it just makes me feel better!

159 Amanda Elyard June 5, 2012 at

Hi, June 5th entry comment:

I would like to see you talk more about saving money with kids. Birthdays are especially hard for me because so many of their friends have big parties and they are at the ages were they want that too.
Thanks,
Amanda

160 Natalie June 5, 2012 at

I would love to see more recipes! I love to cook and can never get enough new recipes to try. I would also like to see more about couponing. Mostly tips on how to use them to their fullest. I clip coupons but I feel like there has to be a trick that I am not aware of.

161 laura ari June 6, 2012 at

I didn’t know about your awesome coupon database! I can’t wait to try!

162 Jennifer Marie June 6, 2012 at

I do love coupons! I have been slacking a little lately, but I am ready to gear back up! Can’t wait to use your database!

163 Kimberly at Rubber Chicken Madness June 6, 2012 at

I love your coupon database. It’s far simpler to use than others I have tried. And I know that when I stop by to use it, I’ll get some other little nugget of money saving wisdom from your blog!

164 Jessica T. June 6, 2012 at

I do love coupons. I have tried your coupon database and was surprised at how fast and easy it was to use!

165 Cortney B. June 6, 2012 at

I want to say graduation! But I also know that your littlest has been getting his therapy for the dog bite and the lawsuit finally got settled.

Your 16 year old, who is on the JV team, went to a game with you. He was punished disproportionately to his team mates, and pointed it out to his coach. He had the maturity and empathy to bring up the issue of bullying to his coach, and encouraged (and mentored) a team mate that is not quite as successful as he is.

I found you on Twitter when I started getting into couponing. Been following you there for about a year and FB a little less than that and reading this, I added you to my G+ today. I have 2 young boys and I am a new single mom and my youngest son has autism. I love that I can go to your blog and get the run-down on the deals so I can save money since I currently do not have the time to do all the research. You are amazing and have helped me save on average 60+% on my groceries!!!!! Thank you.

June 7th answer… your oldest graduated high school last month

200 missyj June 8, 2012 at

You are my first & favorite blogger & I LOVE you so much, even though Oprah is your friend & not mine, LOL. You have made me feel loved the past couple days as well. You have helped me deal with my Chick-fil-A drama more than you will ever know, my venting board, for lack of better words. I love hearing stories of the boys, the good ones more than the sad ones, but we know everything can’t be perfect always. I hope & pray your blog continues to be a success for you.

201 Kimberly at Rubber Chicken Madness June 8, 2012 at
