Etsy Giveaways

One of my favorite sites is Etsy. I have a couple friends that sell products on Etsy and I just love the idea all together. Etsy is a way of selling handmade items online as a community. It is part of a rebirth of the cottage industry in my opinion. Check out these Etsy giveaways on their giveaway blog. What a great way to promote your products.

A Season of Giveaways Part 2

The 30 Day Giving Challenge is being hosted by a group of bloggers. They discuss ideas for giving, charities, and provide giveaways as part of the event.

"If you have a heart for giving, we invite you to join us from November 1 – 30, 2010 as we take giving to new heights, combining the efforts of thousands of people. We’ll be working together to bless our friends, family, neighbors, and complete strangers by making a conscious effort to give each day of November. And we’ll do it all for God’s glory!"

Two Free Tacos at Jack in the Box per person Today! Just ask! No coupon necessary.

A Season of Giveaways!

Many Frugal Blogs are gathering together and have excellent giveaways! Now, make sure to follow the rules. In order to enter each giveaway make sure you post on the blog itself, not on facebook or twitter. You comment right below the giveaway. You can enter on each blog even if they are giving away the same item. Just keep track of where you have entered so you don't get mixed up. I suggest you start with one blog and enter all giveaways for that blog, then move on to the next. SO you have 12 blogs giving away 12 items each. Remember blogs and local contests really are the best odds for winning.  I'll post about other blogsters events soon. Good Luck!

Check out the Grateful Giveaways Event November 15th through November 19th at 11:59pm (keep time differences in mind some bloggers may not be PST) hosted by:
