Do you like to win? Are you lucky?

Largely though wanting to engage with other mummy bloggers, I joined in competitions in the last year or so via the Britmums website.

The first win was a surprise and others followed in pleasing numbers. It is worth having a go and you can get some lovely parcels through the post to brighten your day.

My best win of the year was via Netmums where I won a family ticket to the Jack in the Beanstalk Pantomime. I liked this as everyone got to enjoy it.

So what am I saying? Well, in cash-strapped times, perhaps a little treat via competition wins now and again is a very good thing. You have to be in it to win it of course.

According to money-saving sites, some people set time aside to apply for competitions almost as if it is a job in itself. That is not for me but it might be for you.

With this new and improved blog, I hope to offer regular competitions so do keep checking back.

If you are a promoting a product or service, why not consider asking me to run a competition or reader offer? Just check out the “How To Contact Me” page at the top of this site. My readers are mainly mums based in the UK.

Wishing you all lots of luck on all fronts in 2012.

Do you do competitions? What is your experience of them?
