Kindle 3G - One Savvy Coupon Mom - 10/3

I am married to a gadget guy. After 5 years of marriage I have grown to appreciate gadgets and I have had acquired a collection of my own kitchen gadgets. I do not have a Kindle. When I saw that One Savvy Coupon Mom was giving one away, I had to enter. However, my husband does not have a Kindle either....if I win, would I keep it or give it to him as a surprise gift....questions to ponder...I guess I'll cross that bridge if I win.

HP Touchsmart - Spanglishbaby - 10/10

When I stumbled upon Spanglishbaby, I saw the giveaway for the HP Touchsmart. I was instructed to watch a video. I was so excited by the way the computer looks in the kitchen. My laptop is nearly always in the kitchen--mainly, because I can sit on one of my counter stools and observe the kids while they play in the living room. Also I spend so much time in the kitchen cooking and preparing food, serving snacks, etc.

Check out Spanglishbaby and enter!

Halo SleepSack - Freebies and Much More - 9/29

My son will not stay under the covers. I have resorted to putting two pairs of pajamas on him in order to keep him warm! I used to use Gap sleep sacks, but the largest size they offered was 18-24 months. He just turned two, so these sacks do not work anymore.

I was elated to find out that Halo makes a sleep sack for toddlers. Freebies and Much More is giving one away! Hooray for Freebies and Much More!

Babyliss Hair Dryer - Akronohiomommies 10/6

I purchased a Hot Tools curling iron a couple of weeks ago. I got it on Amazon for around $35. I was a bit skeptical about it. However, the stylist who does my hair uses one and $35 is a lot cheaper than the $100+ models. Then I tried it. I loved it.

It gets hot. If I quickly run it "down" my long hair before I actually attempt to curl it, the hair is so hot, that it burns my fingers to touch it. I LOVE my Hot Tools curling iron and it really makes me happy when I curl my hair, it never feels like a chore.

That being said, I am now really interested in getting a professional hair dryer. I have super thick long hair that easily takes 20+ minutes do dry. If I can reduce my hair drying time by 5 or so minutes, it would be well worth it to own this product.

Akronohiomommies is giving away a Babyliss Pro Ionic Ceramic Hair Dryer and I really hope I win it!

ipod Touch - ChristianPF - 9/23

If you haven't figured me out yet, I am all about budgets and fiance. (I used to be an accountant when I worked full I am a full time SAHM.) I am so excited that he is giving away an ipod Touch.

He asked that I link my favorite blog post. I picked "The 7 Free Printable Worksheets" because I believe that when you start tracking your purchases, you will a) know where the money goes and b) hopefully develop realistic budgets. By realistic, I mean knowing what your needs are. It may sound fabulous to budget $60 for groceries per week, but if you cannot feed yourself or your family with $60, it isn't a realistic budget.

Multiple Prizes!!! Out of Debt Again - 9/27

Out of Debt Again is having a super-big giveaway. I really like these flea market style giveaway....there is a little bit of this and a little bit of that. It makes it really exciting in my opinion and if you do not win a big prize, odds are that you will win something. I am always excited to win a small prize...$30 to paypal or $25 from Amazon is awesome to me. These "prizes" enable me to fund things that aren't in my "budget"...yes, I stick to my budget, even if it is painful.

Also, the financial book prizes tend to be good reads too.

Shredder - It's Really Only a Purple World - 9/18

Okay, I am a bit obsessed about having a shredder because I found another site giving one away! Yeah! If I had a shredder. I would use it. That's it. This isn't a giveaway for some kind of cosmetic that looks sketchy or a food item I wouldn't be tempted to buy at the grocery store. It is for a shredder and shredders reduce identity theft. It is a necessary item--not a whim purchase. So, I am trying to win one at It's Really Only a Purple World.

Stamps - Health, Beauty, Children, and Family - 9/24

These stamps by Storkie are so cool! I do not think I have ever seen personalized stamps before but won't they look great on personalized Christmas cards? I plan early for Christmas. I try to have all my gifts purchased by 9/30 and wrapped by 10/31. This totally frees up my Advent season. Check out these stamps at Health, Beauty, Children and Family.

FYI - Storkie does a nice job with invitations as well.

Paper Shredder - What's that Buzz - 9/19

Okay, asking for a paper shredder isn't very sexy..."honey, I want a paper shredder for Christmas.." Yeah, you know. However, everyone really needs one of these things and on the priority list, it falls somewhere after taking vitamins and before reading the daily paper. (I do neither activity.) I know I need one. I have been the victim of identity theft. What's that Buzz is giving on away and I do hope that I am the lucky winner...and if I am not, I hope that I am not the victim of identity theft again!

Pearl Earrings - Sammi's Blog of Life - 9/16

I am a pearl earring addict. I rarely wear anything else in my first hole. They always look fashionable and stylish. However, I lost one of my pearl earrings at the preschool picnic and I am in need of a replacement. Sammi is giving away a high quality pair. I am super excited!

Vtech Phone - Trying to Stay Calm - 9/21

My phone is super old. It is Motorola. The screen does not even work properly so you cannot see the digits. I really need a new phone and Trying to Stay Calm is giving way one from Vtech. I am hoping to win it. It is so tricked will definitely increase my overall hipness.

Seventh Generation - Delightful Chaos - 9/7

I love the Seventh Generation spray that I ran out of. My admiration stems from the fact that my kids fling food all over the table and then retrieve, and eat the food that they have flung! I constantly spray the kitchen table with Seventh Generation and I do not have to worry about the harsh chemicals. In case you are wondering, we do provide our children with plates and utensils. Those items become airborne as well.

Delightful Chaos is running a lovely Seventh Generation complete with cleaning wipes. I am salivating over the wipes. Wipes are a very very very good thing--you can tell I change a lot of diapers!
