I have a couple of SAHM friends who seem like they have Giveaway Fever. Realize, of course, that I'm not a doctor (I don't even play one on TV) and my medical opinion is worth bupkis. I also really don't think that they literally have temperatures elevated over the standard 98.6 degrees.
But, really, who can blame them for entering these contests? Who doesn't like getting something for nearly nothing?
I'm a little embarrassed to admit it, but I think I also have caught Giveaway Fever. I know, I know, long-time readers of this blog are probably thinking that there is absolutely nothing that embarrasses me. Oddly, I feel silly for entering these contests since I never win and it seems unlikely that I'm going on a winning streak anytime soon. Note that this is exactly the reason why I NEVER play the lottery. Why waste a dollar? Well, with most giveaways, I'm just wasting a little bit of time. There is one thing that I have in spades these days - time! And there is one thing that I feel that I'm lacking - cash!
I've been investigating the world of mama cloth a lot lately and I've started to purchase pads to try out on my next cycle. Yes, I'll still primarily use my Diva Cup because it is generally the most convenient way to manage an inconvenient time, but I like having the option to use something else besides disposable pads and tampons. In my mama cloth research (why must I over-analyze EVERYTHING?!), I've found some giveaways. What's better than purchasing a reusable pad? Winning one for FREE!
For those of you who are just crunchola enough to give mama cloth a try, here's a pretty good giveaway to enter. It's offered from the blog 6 and STILL Sane and, yes, I entered too. The giveaway is for pads from Randumosity.
Randumosity has a shop on etsy.com that offers mama cloth, wetbags, and flaxseed-filled ouchie pads. Clicky the linky and be prepared to find some really, really pretty offerings. I have a sinking suspicion that I'll end up ordering something whether or not I win this giveaway. Oh, Etsy, why did I have to find you and your fabulous shops???
Enter quickly if you're so inclined as the giveaway ends on September 4 at 10:00 pm MST. Good luck!
