Blog Giveaways

>> Thursday, November 12, 2009

One thing I enjoy about reading blogs is being introduced to wonderful products by all the bloggers out there. Many times when a blogger has a chance to review a product they also get to give away that product to a lucky blog reader. Generally your chances of winning a blog contest are much better than winning a contest sponsored by a big company simply because there are far fewer entries. I have won a Target gift card, an Aveeno travel pack, a devotional book and Kids Eat Free coupons to O'Charleys by entering blog giveaways. I'm sure I miss out on lots of giveaways simply because there are so many blogs out there that I just haven't found yet. And if I'm missing out on some of them, chances are some of my readers are too. I will now be hosting a blog giveaway round-up every Thursday here at The Money Jar. I hope you'll stop by and enter the giveaways and maybe win some wonderful prizes, not to mention discovering wonderful new blogs along the way. And if you're hosting a giveaway be sure to leave a link so we can enter your giveaway.

I'm including my first Giveaway Thursday MckLinky in this post. If you are hosting a giveaway, please leave your link. If you know someone hosting a giveaway, tell them to stop by and leave their link. Thanks! Please keep giveaway links family friendly.

Ring That Bell

I mentioned the other day in this post that I would be sharing more small ways to give big this holiday season and beyond. Today's suggestion doesn't require any money; just a little of your time. You can make a difference this holiday season by volunteering with the Salvation Army as a bell ringer.

We're all familiar with the sound of a ringing bell and the sight of a red kettle during the Christmas holidays. The Salvation Army's Red Kettle campaign allows them to provide food, clothing and toys to over 6 million people during the Christmas season. It also allows them to help over 34 million people recovering from all kinds of personal disasters nationwide. The campaign was started in 1891 and has traditionally been the Salvations Army's biggest fund raising event.

Signing up is simple. Simply go here to find out which locations have openings in your area and select a time. If this is your first time using the site you will need to register. From looking at my local area, you need to be able to fill in one 3 hour block of time.

Maybe this is your small way to give big.


Menu Plan Monday 11/9/09

Keeping it simple this week so I don't have any recipes to share. Here's what we'll be eating.

Tilapia, baked potatoes, salad
Grilled cheese sandwiches, soup
Pasta marinara, salad
Scrambled eggs, toast, fresh fruit
