You can get things for free on the internet?!

Once upon a time I thought that no one could possibly get things for free from the internet. Surely all those giveaways, contests and make money from searching sites had to be a scam right? Then I reluctantly gave in and tried Swagbucks. I earned $200 in the first 6 months just from searching! I never did any of the surveys, special offers etc. That $200 paid for Willow’s Jumperoo and a lot of her Christmas presents, since then I’ve purchased everything from a new vacuum to diapers with my Amazon gift cards that I earned from Swagbucks.

So search sites were real, but I still couldn’t believe that those giveaways were legitimate. I thought they were a way to collect your info and sell it for marketing purposes. Until two weeks ago when I thought I’d give it a try. After all, I do need something to do when the twins wake up in the middle of the night to eat. Three feedings a night at a hour each gives me three hours to mess around on the internet. So I created a second email address (still worried about spam) and started entering away! What did I really have to loose? The answer is nothing, I actually won!

In the past week, I’ve won two giveaways from other bloggers. Thanks to One Scrappy Mom Willow now has a copy of Barney 1-2-3 on its way and I have 2 adorable reversible headbands from Saved By Grace Designs thanks to The Remodeled Life. The lesson ladies? Take a chance!
