Money Saver Monday: Enter and win!

I love contests. When I was a kid I remember entering a contest for a necklace at a local mall - I put my mom's name in and we won a gold plated diamond-esque (this was a poor imitation) necklace. It was hideous, but we won, and ever since then I've been hooked. The learning moment here was you have to enter to win. Period. Many years passed and I moved from mall contests to $1 scratchers (side note, these are a terrible thing to "enter" as typically it's a way to throw a dollar away). Last year Linz and I had a winning card with $500 - woohoo!

And this brings me to my current lesson and announcement for the week - first, the lesson: you have to enter to win. I watch a handful of sites with contests (Parent Mag, Women's Health, etc.) and enter when I can. I haven't won on those sites yet, but here's hoping.

And now for the fun part - the "announcement" ... drumroll ...

The winner of the DwellStudio pillow from last week's blog-contest is Jill! Jill, please email me (autreytaylor (at) gmail.com) with your address and I'll send it to Bedding Sets.com to send on your prize.

I'm so sad that I missed you yesterday. Rob said you're looking great! Are you still working? We should meet for lunch sometime, I'm at Folsom and Beale.
