Competition wins 2011

Thought I’d write as list of my prize wins so far this year.I MUST start taking photo’s of what I win for future reference.I’ve been interested in competitions for years and won the odd prize here and there,then I found their forum they have a lovely thread called Competition time which lists online competitions.It also has a very comprehensive guide as to how to start comping.I still refer to this often.My first prize was for a double archway kit worth aprox £175.00 for indoors.I was convinced I could sell it or give it away to family or friends.I didnt manage to do either and ended up giving it away.It taught me not to enter competitions for thing I dont really want though-especially big items.It did however get me well and truly hooked on entering competitions.

    I’ve only been comping since November and am well and truly hooked. My system isn’t spot on yet but it’s getting there, I do Mse by date (ending soonest first) and facebook comps. Must say that facebook has brought me more wins but I love the little wins from Blogs and the email comps for bits of toys or books. May has been brill with wins icluding Louboutin shoes and an Ipad 2. I can’t seem to find the time to do the daily comps on Mse but with 4 kids – the youngest aged 2 (and a handful) something has to give.

    I get such a buzz from every win, big or small and there are worse things I could be doing with my “spare” time. Good luck with this and the comping xx

    Thank you for your lovely comment.It is definately a very addictive hobby.I’ve only been entering competitions regularly since November 2009.I,like you dont manage to do the daily entry comps.I get a lot of Facebook wins too but this has slowed down a bit recently.My favourite wins are the surprise ones that just turn up out of the blue.Have you tried Twitter? I’m not sure what to do about twitter competitions,they are quick to enter but takes me ages to sift through and I dont get many Twitter wins-had more from blog comps lately.I enter comps same way as you on mse-I find it easier to keep track of them that way.Good luck with your comping,long may your lucky spell continue.

      They were,it was definately my best win to date.I was amazed how quickly we spent it-took us less than an hour.Our local store is quite a distance away so we made a day of it and went by train then paid for most of it to be delivered.I really must start taking photo’s of my prizes.Seem to be doing well with blog comps this year-due to lower ammount of entries I presume.I am really loving reading everyone elses blogs and writing this one,gets quite addictive doesn’t it.
