Ask the Readers Thursday


I am hosting my second "Ask the Readers" Thursday session today. All you have to do is read the question, think about the question, and leave a comment with your answer. One lucky reader will win $5 in PayPal Cash just for responding to the question! (Last week, Hilary won a $5 Amazon Gift Card!) Leave your email address with your response. The session closes at 11:59pm Thursday (1/20). You can continue to comment after the giveaway closes.


Question:

You just checked your email and found out that you won a $100 blog giveaway. What would you do with the $100?

  1. I think, if it were from a blog giveaway, I would treat myself to a mani/pedi or something... I'm a single mom of a special needs child. I'm broke. I spend every last penny on my son and my appearance definitely suffers. It would be nice to have something just for me. Just once. ;)

  2. I'd probably re-gift it on my blog. :)

  3. Do you want the fun answer or the practical answer? LOL!

    The practical answer is to put it in savings (or toward some credit card debt). The fun answer is to SPEND IT! :) I guess I could merge the practical and fun and put it away for spending on Christmas gifts (save it for now, spend it later!)

  6. I reeeeaaaallllly need new shoes. But I don't just want cheapie shoes, I want gooood shoes. So I would buy a nice pair of everyday, practical shoes and not feel one bit guilty if I had to pay only $20 out of pocket after the $100 freebie!

  8. I would RUN to the nearest nail salon for a pedi (I would probably need it if I ran hehe) and then off to lunch and a haircut. As a stay at home mom it's always nice to have money for a rainy day!!

  11. I would go get my hair done. Get a shampoo with a really great head massage and then some color and really new sassy haircut. Howardk1961@yahoo.com

  12. I actually give all my giveaway prizes like this, to charity. There are lots of times I wish I could donate more than what I do from my income, as I very much believe in pay it forward. My charity of choice changes every now and then, but I take pride in knowing that I'm making a difference.

    Any amount is accepted, and if I feel I don't have enough to make a sizeable donation, I sometimes take the gift money and put it towards yarn, which I create hats for chemo patients, or laprobes for our local nursing homes from. I'm very grateful for everything I have in life, and realize that lots don't have anything, and if a simple handcrafted creation can make someone smile, then that's all the payout I need.

  15. If I won a $100 dollar gift card I would probably spend that money on the people I love the most and on arts and craft items.

  17. We are trying to beef up our savings due to a pay cut this year, so I'd probably add it to our savings account. Although I might sneak out $20 or so. I've been dying to get a Shark steam mop, so I might put it towards saving up for that.

  19. MmmmmMASSAGE!!! I miss them so much! I need one terribly, but can't get them regularly like I used to. Then the rest of the $ would go to HEB, where all my money goes! Might splurge on a nice bottle of vino :-)

  20. Honestly, since my hubby didn't get anything for Christmas because I lost my job in November and all we had went to the 4 kids. I would buy him something really nice! He deserves it!

  23. It depends on the day I find out! If it's a good day, I would put it in my savings acct. If it's a bad day, the first twenty would go towards a NICE bottle of wine. If it was last Saturday, I would spend it on some baby stuff for my niece who is pregnant! (just found out)
