How'd I Get So Lucky

Whoa....how did I get so lucky?  The last two months have been great as far as winning giveaways go.  With Neil and I sharing a computer now it seems I hardly get time on line anymore.  I can't imagine how many I might have won if I could have found time to look for giveaways.  These are blogs I just love to visit and  though time has been in short supply I did manage to get a few visits in.

I've got four wins that I want to (finally) say thank you for.  I really do hope you take the time to visit each of these blogs because I honestly do visit these regularly and you'll see why when you visit.  Lots of info and lots of hot tips.

My first win in May was from Kiley over at Cherry Blossoms.  I really was excited to win this one because I had never heard of it but knew I needed it.  I'm guilty of forgetting towels and leaving them to get that terrible mildewy smell - uggghhh, I hate that!  Believe me I've tried it all, white vinegar, baking soda, you know the drill.  First thing I did was clean my  washer with it. It only takes a cap full so this bottle should last awhile.  I haven't used it on any towels are clothes yet but I'll tell you more when I know more.

So thank you Kiley very much for a win that is much needed at my house.  And thank you Smelly Washer for sponsoring Cherry Blossoms giveaway.


My  second win of  May was over at Koupon Karens Blog.  Karen's blog keeps me up to date on all the weekly sales.  Talk about organized, Karen has got it going on.  Tips on coupons, combining sales, and giveaways all in one place and organized by store too!

Karen's giveaway was sponsored by Lysol. Who doesn't use lysol.  We use it a lot around here.  This was the first time I've tried the Spring Waterfall scent which is a light clean smelling spray disinfectant.  They also sent me  the 4 in 1 disinfecting wipes in the same sent.  I love this for quick in-between cleanups.  Thanks Karen for picking me as your winner and for always keeping me so up to date on the best bargains out there!

My 3rd win is well a winner for a coupon user like me.  I won Dee's giveaway at Cocktails With Mom.  I won the Savvy Cents Wallet in black.  If you use coupons you know that the only way to get the most from them is to be organized.  Well otherwise it just becomes too confusing and too time-consuming.  Just look at all the compartments and it even comes with handy labels.  Now I actually have a chic wallet that doesn't look like a coupon holder to carry them in.  Thank you Dee, I love it!  Dee is another busy blogger, always on top of the latest giveaways.

And last but not least is my latest win from Chris at Freebies and Much More.  I won the Mom's Best Naturals Cereal giveaway.  I got to chose the two that I wanted to try and they shipping them directly to me.  I chose the Mallow-Oats to help satisfy my sweet tooth.  I also chose the Instant Oatmeal Variety pack with 10 packets in 3 varieties for my MIL.  Mom's Best is a healthy, delicious, low-priced and environmentally friendly cereal.  Check out Chris' blog for all the latest on freebies, giveaways and coupons.  She even has a column called Freebies by Topic.  Could she have made it any simpler?  I don't think so.  Thanks Chris for filling my pantry with good deals and now cereal too.

Well girls (and not to discriminate, guys too), there you have it, my latest wins.  Remember if you don't enter you can't win.  And you meet the nicest people and find the coolest blogs too.  What about ya'll?  What have ya'll won lately?  Do you know of a great giveaway you want to share.  I love hearing about them.  

P.S.  Don't forget this is celebration month for my 1 year blogiversary!  My first giveaway has already started.  Click here to read more about it and enter.  Keep watching there's more giveaways to come.

Hugs....Tracy :)
