Give thanks, save money: Win $500 Walmart gift card

by arianne

**Contest is OVER, thanks to all who entered!  Winner will be announced soon!

This year has been such a roller coaster year, and I’m thankful for so very much.  My family is (almost) all living in the same place again, my wonderful friends (online and off), and perhaps most of all my children’s amazing progress this year with autism.  Even through all the trials and tribulations we’ve had thrown at us this year, the blessings still stand out, shining brightly above all the hardships.

I’m also so grateful for amazing bloggy opportunities, not the least of which is the chance to give things away to my readers, those of you that are always here to lend an ear, to support me when I’m down and celebrate with me when I’m up.  You’re loyalty humbles me.

That’s why I’m thrilled to have the chance to give away a $500 Walmart gift card, sponsored by Nickelodeon, to one of you just in time for the holidays.  You’ll get your card in time for last minute shopping, and I’m seriously so excited to bless one of you with this gift!  Even better, all the other Walmart ElevenMoms are giving away the same thing, so you have LOTS of chances to win (sorry, you can only win once though!).  Everyone has different rules to their contests, so be sure to read each post carefully.

Most of you know (and can relate to) the fact that the economy has been very hard on our family this year.  The holiday season is a little bittersweet when you can’t celebrate the way you’d like to, or are used to.  I’ve had to become a bargain finder, deal hunter and all around frugal loving mama, and I can’t get enough of the smart and savvy ideas when it comes to inexpensive gifts and ways to save money this time of the year.

This is where you come in! To enter my contest, I want to learn from you, and find more ways to have a fun and frugal holiday.

Make something like these pocket organizers at http://organize-my-life.blogspot.com/2008/10/my-p…because they take about an hour a piece and you can make several with the supplies that you purchase. I was also able to personalize them for each person given their interests and favorite colors.

I love to shop all of the after christmas sales. I stock up on all the great deals and put everything away in storage. It is so fun getting everything out the next year, becuase you forget what you have bought after a year. It is really fun when you look at all of your great gifts saying "I can't believe I only paid $$$$ for this.

We love to make homemade ornaments from our craft scraps we collected all year. We have lots of leftover fabrics, yarns, paints, glitters, pompoms, craft sticks, etc. and our tree looks fabulous each year! Plus it's a great way to spend time with the kiddos. Each year gets a little better because of the memories from prior years hanging on the tree. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a generous giveaway.
