I've won some things from blog giveaways recently, and I thought I'd give a shout out to the blogs and the winnings.
Rockin' Green Cloth Diaper Degergent, laundry scoop and pail freshener from the Knickernappies Blog.
Maroon5 concert tickets, courtesy of Wishing Penny. I won't be going to the concert, as they are a gift for my husband and he'll be at work the week of the concert (which will be in the city where he'll be working that week.)
A "Babies" Blu-ray DVD from MovieMom. We watched this as soon as we got it. Elizabeth giggled a lot at the babies and their antics. Nathanael happily exclaimed "Baby!" throughout the movie.
A while back, I won a couple of diapers, a fun little dress up set for Elizabeth, and a stuffed animal.
Now, lets be honest about how much time I'm putting in compared to my winnings. I have entered more than 200 giveaways. If I spent only 5 minutes at each giveaway, that would be 1000 minutes. 16.6 hours. That's a lot of time. The approximate retail value for all that stuff is $275.23. That means, according to those numbers, that I average about $16.50 per hour.
You know, that's really better than I than I thought it would be. I hadn't actually figure the numbers, but I know I spent a lot of time.
Maybe entering giveaways isn't such a waste of time!
