Win $100 From the SCOTT Common Sense Community

Remember my Scott Giveaway from a couple of weeks ago? Well the generous folks over there have come up with another giveaway for us. To end our 10 Days of Giveaways this one is a GOODIE! A $100 VISA gift card! Yup, check this out:

The SCOTT® Common Sense Community is the place where practical solutions and quality products come together to enhance your everyday life. I went and checked it out and they’ve got some fun money saving tips, time savers and everything in between. Plus you can join in the chat! It’s a community of common sense!! LOL!

Scott Common Sense Community is your online destination for tips and advice on life’s everyday challenges. This month, Scott Common Sense Community is all about Change for the Better with tips on building healthy habits, healthy credit, and conquering holiday clutter. For me my change for the better has got to me my life/work balance. Over the past few months I’ve realized that it’s not easy to be a Work at Home Mum and in fact some days I wish I could go to work as that may be easier than trying to balance it all. So I’m a work in progress. Sometimes I want to blog, other times I want to shop for 10 cent flipflops but most of the time I just want to be Tim’s wife and take care of my teething son. Anyhoo…..

  47. We are trying to change for the better this month by trying to reduce the amount of electricity we use. We are hoping to reduce our electric bill by $20. I will continue to dry clothes outside as long as the weather cooperates and when I do need to stop that I will use the clothes racks that we have hung up in the basement. Turning off the computer instead of keeping it on stand by is another way, and trying to get the whole family together on unplugging items that aren't being used is also certain to help.
    Thanks for the chance!!

  99. This month, what I've been doing for a change for the better has been really working on organizing my home so that everything is more functional and efficient that way, we save time that we can spend together as a family instead of time trying to find something. This also makes our home more enjoyable.

  100. I shared this giveaway with link to it to my friends on Facebook.

  101. This month I am starting by becoming a better steward of what God has given me. As a single mom our budget is very very tight. However, I have signed up for a financial freedom class which will help me financially and with my relationship with God. We have also stopped eating out at all, I am cleaning every nook and cranny in my home to give away stuff and have a garage sale. This is also an excellent time for me to get organized. I have stuff I didnt even know I had packed away, which means less shopping.
