Thrifty Tip of the Day- June 26

Thrifty Tip of the Day- Compete in Contests and Giveaways!

A fun way of potentially winning some fun prizes is to enter sweepstakes and contests.  

I found a great article on About.com with some Tips for Beginners for entering contests and giveways. They also have a great page you can check for New Sweepstakes and Contests.   
Here are some tips for spotting legitimate contests:

1. Does the website have a privacy policy?
2. Is there a clear set of sweepstakes rules?
3. Does the giveaway follow basic sweepstakes rules?
4. Does the sweepstakes require a reasonable amount of information?

One great sweepstakes I found is below.  All you have to do is share a stain removing tip at the site below for a chance to win some nice prizes. 

Have fun with contests and giveaways!

Don't Shop- ADOPT!


Cats and dogs are very near and dear to my heart.  A few years ago I purchased a kitten from a pet store.  It looked sick and I thought I was helping.  A few days later she died and I got sick from the kitten.  The case is even worse for puppies.

From the Humane Society:
"Pet stores that care about puppies don't sell them. That's because the majority of pet stores that sell puppies carry dogs from cruel and inhumane puppy mills. Puppy mills are like dog-making factories with the mother dogs spending their entire lives in cramped cages or kennels with little or no personal attention or quality of life. When the mother and father dogs can no longer breed, they are discarded or killed. Consumers who purchase puppies from pet stores or over the Internet without seeing a breeder's home firsthand are often unknowingly supporting this cruel industry.

Help stop this cycle of cruelty simply by choosing to adopt your next pet from a shelter or rescue, or by only purchasing a dog from a responsible breeder who will show you where your puppy was born and raised. And that's not all—you can do even more by refusing to buy pet supplies from any store or website that sells puppies. Where you spend your dollars makes a difference. Make a statement when you shop!"

You can help the Humane Society society stop Puppy Mills by clicking through above (on the banner) and signing their pledge to help stop Puppy Mills.  Your voice makes a difference.
