This has been the year that I have started to "comp" (enter competitions) systematically and it is proving to be great fun.
My wins this year have included
A one hour life coaching session
Tickets to a West End show,
Tickets to a country show,
A pair of "designer" trainers,
Four different selections of books
Selection of Milton hygiene products
A mobile phone
Tickets to a clothes show
A huge selection of gel nail products
A dinosaur toy
Some of these have been used, some given away and a few sold on eBay.
I seem to be particularly successful in winning books. I suspect that these competitions have less entries than others.
I spend about an hour every day entering competitions, usually first thing in the morning when I am barely conscious and not really up to doing much else! It is not sure-fire way of acquiring something I want nor is it a quick way of making money but it is still fun waiting to see what the postie will bring.
