Bloggy Giveaway



Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

This is my first time partcipating in the Bloggy Giveaways. I won something last time at the giveaways, so I thought that I would go ahead and participate in the giving part!




How it works is really simple, you leave a comment here, about what your favorite thing that you got for FREE. On April 27th I will randomly pick a winner and you will win a box of different FREE samples that I have gotten in the last month or so.




You don't have to be a blogger to win, just make sure that you leave an email address so I can contact you if you win! Because of the cost of shipping I am going to have to limit this to giveaway to U.S. participants only.




That's it, pretty simple! Just don't forget to leave a comment about what your favorite thing that you got for FREE (no "please enter me," or "I want to win," etc.)--if you don't you won't be entered to win.




Also don't forget to check out my other blogs for more chances to win more FREE stuff!

Suzie G. said...

I answered an ad on Freecycle once for free baby clothes because my friend was expecting a girl. When I showed up I was expecting a small grocery bag or two but this woman had three Pampers diaper boxes FULL of clothes from her twin girls waiting for me. There were quite a few matching sets and most of it was really nice Carter's stuff that looked like it was barely used. Since I was newly pregnant at the time I saved one of each of the things there was two of. Two months ago I had a boy... now I'm waiting to see if another friend who's due in November is having a girl.

Joanna said...

My favorite thing that I've gotten for free recently are the swings that hang in our backyard. We managed to pick up two toddler swings from Freecycle. We only had one baby at the time and didn't know what we'd do with the second swing, but soon found out that we were expecting again!

Thank you for your giveaway!

I don't have a prticular favorite, and I haven't won any huge giveaway, but getting so much of my non-grocery (and even some grocery!) free or so very cheap by doing deals is so much fun, plus it takes a lot of strain off the finances.

I'm offering a pretty black tote as a giveaway over @ my blog:

susan1215 said...

I won a Wii and my kids love it

Ney_Strokes of Magic said...

Great Giveaway! I love your blog . .. wish I would have found it sooner. I love getting "freebies" - it is like getting birthday presents on a regular basis, not just once a year. LOL My favorite freebie is my first freebie I ever got. I was 13 and saw a little advertisement in one of my moms old magazines (she let me cut them up when she was done with them) and it said something like this "send your name and address and why you like horses and you will receive 4 free horse prints". I did what was required and couldn't believe I had really gotten them. I still have them today!!

Thanks for asking - that is a good question, I enjoyed writing.

Hugs
Renee

Teri said...

I got a huge bag of cat food for free about a year ago as part of a survey panel product trial - my cat loved the stuff!

My favorite freebie for myself would probably be razors :)

Michelle B. said...

I received free makeup.

Teri said...

I was fortunate to win a tutu from Fancy Princess. Also, I got an e-mail saying I've won a Mothers Day Prize. I went to the site, my name was listed as the winner...but I have no idea what I won. I'll let ya'll know when it gets here. I am quite ill, confined to my home, so I enter quite a few contests. Most of them are at the carnival! I don't have to search the web, ya'll have it all right here!
Very conveniet!

Adria said...

Well my absolute favorite free thing is probably money. But I got a free Wii for my kids last year and that was pretty darn exciting, for all of us.

Blog Sweeps said...

This was an accident, but it was something we got free. The propane gas company filled up our gas tank instead of the neighbors. The neighbors called because they never recieved their gas, but they didn't ask for it back from us. It was a warm winter with free propane.

goldenecho said...

My favorite freebie was a sample of Biore, not because it was worth much on its own, but because I found out that their cleanser worked just as well as something I had been using that cost three times as much, so it's saved me lots of money since.
