I Am Going To Win Christmas 2014!

I know, a bold statement if I have ever heard one, but this is my goal. I AM going to win Christmas for 2014. 

Just before the Christmas just gone, I was introduced to comping. I have even won a few things, so I have made the choice that as well as my three blogs, I am also going to try my hand at winning gifts for family and the girls, and maybe even food closer to the time.

Granted I will get a few bargains when I see them, but I am hoping that the majority will be wins.

I will admit, I am a little obsessed with saving money at the moment, and people always go on about how December is such a hard month and even though ours was not, I want it to be even easier on my wallet. Hey, maybe I will even get the chance to give gifts I couldn’t ever dream of affording?

Who knows. 

So, here goes my little quest into the unknown.

All this as well as real life, is going to be a mission. So keep the cokes coming and maybe even a little burger or two? Hell, get me Frankie and Bennys On speed dial :P

And by that I mean salad, lots of salad…

    Lots of luck!! I’ve read about people trying to win something every week – and with so many comps out there it *must* be do-able!!

    I’d say it’s totally do-able!
    Last year half my girls presents were prizes I’d won….They didn’t care or know and some of them were things I probably wouldn’t be able to afford!!
    Good luck!!

    Good Luck! I’m not very good, no, I’m hopeless at keeping prizes a secret, so even when I’ve had lots of wins, I don’t manage to keep them for Christmas. This year is different. I’m going to try to win Christmas too. And even if/when I don’t manage that, it doesn’t matter. I would have spent all that time clicking away anyway. So carry on comping!

    I love comping, it’s great fun. Though I’ve only won 3 things since Oct, it’s better than nothing. I’m still happily chomping my way through my Special K porridge.
    Good luck

    Good luck – I have been really lucky the last couple of years and prizes have definitely helped make Christmas and birthdays a lot cheaper plus have won some amazing experiences too!

    I don’t enter comps for some reason. Even when I visit a blog with a comp I leave an ordinary comment and move on. I don’t know why. Seeing how much people win, I really ought to start comping. I thought that though, back in 2011 and won something worth £180 which the PR never sent, so I guess my heart has never been in it. If you win things though, will you be disciplined enough to keep them to oneside till Crimbo 2014? xx
