End of the Year CELEBRATION: Day 1

I am SO excited to spend the next SIX days celebrating YOU!

I sincerely believe that I have some of the most kind readers of any blog in the blog-o-sphere! I have LOVED spending the last year teaching coupon classes, blogging, bumping into many of you at local shopping venues, fielding questions- and all around talking SHOP with you! As much as I have enjoyed encouraging you along your journey to savvier savings, I have been just as encouraged! Thank you for the kind comments and emails, and especially the success stories that many of you have shared- they've definitely hit the spot!

It really tickles me to spend the next SIX days thanking you for a wonderful 2009 (1.1.10 is my one year blog-o-versary) by doling out $50 gift cards... because, lets be honest, gift cards are the best!

TODAY'S GIFT CARD GIVE AWAY IS: $50 to TARGET!!!

Each day between NOON & MIDNIGHT you may enter to with the $50 gift card of the day! The winner of the $50 gift card will be announced the following morning (using Random.org) just before the following day's $50 gift card give away is announced! *Today you may enter earlier if you are reading this before noon.

Here's how to enter: (be sure to heighten your chances of winning by entering more than once!)

1. Sign up to become a FOLLOWER of Sharpen Your Scissors, this is the most sincere form of flattery to a blogger!

2. If you are already a Sharpen Your Scissors FOLLOWER than flaunt your follower status and share how long you've been following Sharpen Your Scissors!

3. For each friend/family member/co-worker/neighbor that you recruit to become a FOLLOWER of Sharpen Your Scissors you will receive another entry to win! (Make sure to enter separately!)


4. Share with me which types of blog posts here at SYS are your favorites!
(Coupon match-ups, recipes, Q&A...)

5. Link this page to your blog, Facebook page or Tweet about this give away! (I'm @mrsdavewebber on Twitter!) Then let me know that you've put out your broadcast!

***All WINNERS will have 24 hours to contact me, or I will select another winner... All gift cards will be mailed out 1/2/10!

The WINNER for the $50 to TARGET will be announced
at NOON tomorrow 12/27/09!
