And Brad and I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate our made-up holiday get together with you today :) It’s our second one in a row – making this officially a tradition!!! Woohoo! So a hearty welcome to old friends and new – this is for you.
We’re giving away a total of $400 this year!!! Right from our pockets to yours, in hopes to alleviate some financial strain during this holiday season. Budgets Are Sexy will be giving out FOUR $50 Visa Gift cards to his kick-ass readers, and Brad the same thing! FOUR $50 cards (or Amazon, Paypal, whatever you want) from Enemy of Debt, so make sure to enter BOTH! That gives you 8 chances to win. Which is one helluva stimulus package my friends, I think Mr. Obama would be proud ;) (I just ruined it, didn’t I?)
Ready to participate in the best holiday giveaway ever? Answer this 1 simple question and you’ll be entered to win. But I want you to think about it for a hot second and really focus. Okay? No skimming and rushing to an answer. Are you ready? You promise? Here we go… be serious:
“If you were married to Mrs. BudgetsAreSexy, what would you buy her for Xmas?”
Hahahahaa… I’m flat out of ideas!!! okay okay, that was a joke (kinda). Here’s the real question. But I still want you to answer from the heart :)
Who are you TRULY thankful for this year? It could be family member, friend, dog, doctor, whomever. Once you have someone in mind – I want you to WRITE A NOTE to them in the comments below, letting ’em know just how much they meant to you this year. It can be as short, or long, as you wish.
I know it’s kinda mushy, but that’s what Christmas Stimulus is all about. Looking back and really being thankful for everyone, and everything, that has blessed our lives throughout the year. There’s not many times when we stop and get to say thank you amid the hustle and bustle, so let today be one of them.
