What an interesting week, been travelling a lot but coming home to exciting mail. 5 competition wins in 7 days, yep…5. Not cheap ones either, a nice cash win (only my second ever) being one of the wins. Also the 2 Kindles and now 2 juicers! One of the juicers is worth £170, but no place in my home for it so ebay it will end up on.
This is an unusual turnaround but emphasises what I have said many times before, you can go months winning nothing then you get a flood! There is no reason for it, just pure luck of the draw! The little cash win was a nice pre-Christmas boost, and one of the juicers is black which matches my kitchen sides so a good fit!
It is always a bonus to win the things you either wanted or can sell, especially if of high value! All the evening hours of entering these competitions make it so worth it. I truly think all the wins have made a difference to my finances, but also to the outward appearances of my lifestyle. Anytime that I can add something nice and posh to my home, without buying it, makes me look more successful in other people’s eyes. I know we shouldn’t care what people think, I never used to but ever since the spectre of debt I have been oh too aware of people’s opinions!
The important thing – say nothing. Nobody needs to know about these wins, just get on with placing them in your home or selling them. It is all about self-improvement, and I myself made the effort to win these things by the hours of filling out forms. Makes a change from filling our financial forms I guess!
December is a big month for competitions, so many Christmas and advent competitions. Easily 4 times as much effort needed but the rewards are higher. Anyone else struggling, give it a go. Never get disheartened either, you will win. The law of averages decides that for you. If you can afford a laptop and broadband, nothing can stop you.
Hopefully the lucky streak will continue on, makes a nice change to be honest.
