I Am Contestant # 756

I've come close to giving up on entering online contests. A lot of times, I don't want to give out my address if I DO win, so that keeps me from entering. On the (still many) contests that I do enter, I just don't win. But when these impossibly easy contests come up, sometimes they just so happen to be giving away something that is apparently *needed* in my house - I can't help myself - even if the odds are getting close to those of the Powerball (which, I never win, either). The Man has been bugging me for a new TV for some time and doesn't seem to understand that they cost money. Money we don't have. Enter the ladies from 5 Minutes for Mom.

5 Minutes for Mom is having a contest sponsored by Best Buy and are giving away an Insignia® 37″ Flat-Panel LCD HDTV.

Entering is really easy. Just leave them a comment and tell your blog friends about it.

5 Minutes for Mom is a great site, for they are the girls who started the Ultimate Blog Party – which is how I met Kelly, Sugar Kane, Chesca and Mrs. Lady (and maybe other people, my memory sucks).

So if your guy won’t shut the hell up about buying a new flat-panel regardless of your financial status…or you just want to win something, head on over there and comment. But hurry! The contest ends August 17th.

I headed over there. I posted ..NOT to win but I actually stuck a little comment in there telling them I hope you win. Good luck to you fingers are crossed.

Go Butrfly! And I'm just like you with contests--I often don't enter, and I never EVER win!

Ohhh good idea Canadian Flake, I'll pop over and tell them I think Butrfly should win too.

I would love a flat screen , but have need to get rid of an obnoxious big screen that hubby talked me in to years ago.

Man I wish you could trade those suckers in like cars and then put down a little cash to upgrade.

Aw, that's sweet guys! I don't think it will help much, though. It's a random drawing.

[little voice] You have to post something on your blog about the contest to really enter aaaaaaand...I needed something to post. So it worked out for everyone. Well, for me. Twice. [/little voice]

Just an FYI- people really DO win contests online. I entered one for Marie Claire magazine once and won about $300 worth of Anna Sui makeup.
Though, I haven't won anything since...
