$500 Giveaway & Money Saving Holiday Tip

Do you want $500 to spend for the holidays at Wal-Mart? This contest is being hosted by Wal-Mart and Nickelodeon (the company that provides programing for children).

Part of the contest is to give money saving tips for the holidays - but each contest is a little different. (I'm posting several contests here so that you can get multiple entries and I can too... but this isn't all of the contests by far.)

My best money saving tip is: To give gifts of your time. Each year we try to have some things on our Christmas lists that don't require going out to buy a gift item - we will give gifts of our time. For instance - give someone a coupon for babysitting... for doing the dishes every night for a week... the laundry... a weekend without football. One year my husband gave me "The 12 Months of Christmas" which involved a coupon for each month of the next year giving me a gift of his time... BEST gift ever!

To Think is To Create...

You can also get another entry by going to Frugal Upstate's contest as well.

Another contest is over at Skimbaco Lifestyle - (you guys - you can get lots of entries for this contest!!)

Yet another at Being

Once again at Mommy Brain Reports

I'll be back later in the day with another post. See you then!

  1. My best money saving tip is "don't shop" which is what I have managed to do thus far. However, with kids that really isn't an option, so I really need to be getting busy. Though I did totally chuckle at the thought of my 13 year old (who decided to trim one of the cat's whiskers today while I was at work...sigh) opening a coupon book from me instead of a video game. The image made me feel better about Grace's whiskers!


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
