First Ever Giveaway!

Ok, remember that post where I advocated the spending of tax refunds on personal pleasure? Well, sadly, most of the commenters responded by saying that they did not expect to receive a tax refund or if they were going to receive one that it would be small and needed for other things.

Not. Fair.

So, in response I am going to give away a $30 gift card to Kohl's for the lucky commenter to spend on themselves. AND ONLY THEMSELVES! I would have chosen Target or Walmart but it's far too easy to justify spending a gift card on something practical in those stores. Plus, I figure it's easy for a man or a woman to find something at Kohl's. They have everything!The only rule is that you must buy something fun or frivolous for yourself. I know for a fact that it is in the nature of mature adults to put others first but I steadfastly urge you to ignore this feeling. If only for one little shopping trip.

All you have to do is leave a comment! I will close the contest one week from today on 3 March 2009. That evening I will write out the commenter's names on pieces of paper and let Muffin do the honors.

Enter as often as you like! Good luck!

You are one awesome lady, my friend. You don't have to enter me in the contest (since I got a refund and I would feel bad for those who didn't if I actually won).

Just thought you should know how refreshing it is to know there are still good people out there. :) Kudos to you!

I heart Kohls! I'd love a gift card.

I've been meaning to have a contest on my blog too - let me know how this turns out for you!

I hope I win!!! I haven't bought new clothes for myself in ages!

Kohls is a great store! And, so far, it's the only place I've ever found boxer briefs for a 4 year old.

My word ver. is "flownho". I think your blog just called me a ho.
