Day 5 big Prize Week winner (iPad Mini)

Well, my pretties, we did it—one full week of power-shopping and prizes, and I don’t know about you, but I loved it. I only wish everyone could’ve won something shiny, because y’all deserve it.

Today’s contest for an iPad Mini was our biggest yet. This Mini has been sitting on my desk for a few weeks. My children are deeply affronted that I had something so awesome in my possession and didn’t give it to them. [In fact: While writing this post, my daughter texted me to say “DID I WIN?” and when I asked her if her name was the winner’s name, she responded with “Yes it is, and my email is: ZOMGIWONANIPADMINI@NOWAYMAN.COM.” She’s pretty tricky, but I didn’t fall for it.]

So who did win? My random number generator says it’s lucky commenter 430… Heather R. Congratulations, Heather—please check your email!

As always, big thanks to everyone who played, and really, thank you everyone who has read, emailed, commented, and generally hung around here this year. I truly appreciate every one of you. The only thing more fun than bargain-hunting is bargain hunting with a few thousand friends. Ha!

And now I have to go eat some leftovers.

    Squeee!!!! Mir I just read & replied to your e-mail, and I swear I am on cloud nine! In fact when I called my husband at work to tell him the news, he thought I was joking him! Thank you so, so very much, this is such a huge blessing to my family, especially after the particularly rough year we’ve had.
