GIVEAWAY #2 - $50 Costco Cash Card

I'm doing this giveaway based on
Things In Which I Believe.



I believe in Families, and in Getting A Good Deal. I have a big family, and so I look for extra-good deals. Buying wholesale comes to mind, no? Back when I had just one kid, and we lived in an apartment, a Costco Warehouse opened in my area. At first, I wondered why, with one child and minimum storage space, we'd want a membership, but then I realized that even buying things like toilet paper or laundry detergent was worth the membership price. Now that I've got 5 kids and a house, Costco is usually my first stop for the essentials. Milk, bread, fruit, cheese, diapers & wipes, flowers, toothpaste, paper towels, etc., etc., etc.. I'm there, with 5 kids in tow, two carts, happy day.



YOU CAN ENTER UP TO TEN* TIMES AND IT'S SUPER EASY. Here's how you win (yes, I totally bogarted this format from giveawaytoday):


First Entry: Comment with your name.
Example: Joe Blow.
Second Entry: Comment with your name
and what you would buy with the $50 at Costco.
Example: Joe Blow. I would get the hummus because
I've heard wonderful things about it. I'd also
buy some fresh roses to give to my neighbor,
and then I'd buy some string cheese
and chocolate milk for the kids
and a few magazines for myself.
Third Entry (worth 3* entries): Comment with your name
and then blog (facebook, twitter) about this post.*
Example: Joe Blow. Twitter.
(*technically, you could blog about it
AND tweet about it AND fb it,
and that would be, um, let's see...math's hard...
NINE entries instead of three??
But you'd have to come back each time
and tell me that you did so.)
Fourth Entry (worth 5 entries): Comment with your name
and tell me that you've added my blog button to your blog.
Example: Joe Blow. Button.



This giveaway will be open until Thursday, July 2nd, 2009, at 11:59 pm MDT. The winner will be announced here on this blog on Friday, July 3nd, 2009.


Good luck!

The first one to comment oh la la I feel special.

Well let me tell you what I would buy it on if I am being really honest...

I am on this weird hcg detox and as soon as I am done I am stuffing a whole chocolate cake down from costco in one night, watch me I kid you not.

With the rest of it I would buy some proscuitto and a big can of freshly grated parm regg.

dalene--

I'm starting to beef up my food storage at the moment, so that's first on my Costco shopping list. I'd like to supplement the whole wheat and powdered milk I just canned at the cannery with things we actually eat. And of course I'd save some room in my shopping cart for some Dutch cocoa and real vanilla for baking something fabulous. My mantra for hard times is "Let us eat cake!"

(I'll be back for more entries later--I like to mix it up a bit.)

Gerb. I would buy diapers and wipes (lame, I know, but those babies get PRICEY!!) and with the cash left over I would get myself some of those yummy sweet potato chips that start with "c" but I never buy because I'm a cheapskate and they are too mucho bucks for a bag of chips. If I still had $$ left I would get myself some chocolate muffins, which everyone knows are pretty much giant cupcakes and perfect for breakfasts in the pantry when no one else is looking.

Gerb said...

Gerb. I Facebooked about it because I don't understand twittering and tweeting. (It's okay, I don't really want to yet. I refused to sign up for FB forever ago, too.)
