Giveaway: Kmart $100 gift card

So we've made it halfway through the year!

I don't know about you but our family has been flat out these last 6 months. So far we have navigated our way through:
  • about 15 birthdays (most in January)
  • Easter
  • bathroom renovations
  • weekly swimming lessons
  • bringing a new baby home
 plus heaps of other stuff that I can barely even remember!

We still have to get through:
  • more birthdays
  • our anniversary
  • finding a new oven for our kitchen
  • Christmas
  • New Year's 
and probably a few other things I've forgotten as well!
We are a bit behind on organising for the next 6 months thanks to the arrival of baby Georgia. She's totally worth it of course :) I've normally started preparing for Christmas by now (it's not as crazy as it sounds - only (??) weeks to go...), but I've barely thought about it yet.
I even missed the Kmart toy catalogue this year but heard lots of people did their shopping there in order to get Christmas present buying done early!
I think that deserves a reward. So with that in mind, I have a message from Kmart for you!
With the kid’s present cupboard now fully stocked thanks to the 2011 Kmart Toy catalogue, how about a little treat for mum? For the chance to win a $100 Kmart gift card, tell us in 25 words or less ‘How would you spend $100 on YOURSELF at Kmart?’ From underwear to gardening and everything in between, Kmart is a one-stop-shop for the budget savy mum.

    1. Its almost too hard to think about what I'd purchase for myself - such indulgences don't happen often :)

      Sad as it sounds, I am so far behind in photo albums and photo books I'd probably spend the entire $100 in that one department!

    2. I've also done a Twitter shout out :)


    3. We've spent the last few weeks living in denial that our baby boy is one next week so we've forgotten Christmas too! Normally we're so organised LOL

    4. I would buy myself a pair of not-so-practical but gorgeous, make-me-feel-like-a-woman shoes as well as some pampering lotions. Can you tell I've dreamed of having money to spend on myself??

    5. I don't often spend money on myself so maybe some new clothes for summer would be nice

    6. Underwear sounds like a great idea and also some new jigsaw puzzles.

    7. Clothes clothes clothes ... it's been so long sicne I've just gone out and spend money on me. How delicious would that be!! Hope all is well the you and your pinks!! Caz

    8. New underwear soft warm pjs and a dvd at kmart $100 can make that happen and have some left over for chocolate.

    9. I never seem to be organised early for Christmas in spite of best intentions. Now I have four grand children I really should make a better effort. It is becoming quite a challenge to rush at the last minute!

    10. Well, considering my make-up bag currently consists of the essential deodorant, hair pins and moisturiser and not much else, I would spend the money on some new beauty products. My make-up at the moment includes magazine samples of foundation and other items in desperate need of replacing (how sad that sounds!) thanks for the opportunity to be selfless for once in my life! :) email kookla123@yahoo.com

    11. Myself...what is that?
      Maybe some new clothes or a hat,
      Maybe a robot to do the cleaning,
      Now that would leave me singing!

    12. $100 just for myself wow. I think some new clothes as I've just lost some weight, and I'd second the new pj's and dvd for a cozy night in...maybe I'll even invite hubby!

    13. Oops email is surveymummy45@yahoo.com.au
      and I've shouted out on Facebook

    14. If I won, I would spend it on some me items-- like skin products, some new towels for our master bedroom, and some new books!! :)

    15. The list is endless with what my children could do with this voucher. Most likely they'd pool it together with their birthday money and purchase something they would all benefit from with a little treat for their own use too.

      I've tweeted too:) @FarmGal79

    16. Definitely jeans - my only pair has a hole in them :( Also some comfy bras, haven't bought new since Taylor born 5 years ago

      You have my email!!

    17. If I was to visit Kmart with a $100 voucher it could go two ways: Either I am without the kids, in which case I would probably by new shoes and some books to relax, both of these take some time to pick the right ones. Or if I am with the kids (more likely) I would buy myself some new pyjama's and a new quilt cover set. I can see a relaxing and bedtime pattern there!

      Just subscribed to your website too!

    18. Hi new follower. Thanks for the opportunity! I would trade my nana undies for something stylish and unique.

    19. Oh wow, what a fabulous giveaway. There is SO much I would love from Kmart but most importantly i'd love to get a whole bunch of photos developed and purchase some lovely new frames and albums to put them in. I love been surrounded by pics of my loved ones so this would fill my heart with joy x

    20. I buy some new bras and underwear , some of my bras are still the ones I bought 5 yrs when I started breastfeeding my twins (only stopped OCT 2010) and still haven't had time to buy new ones LOL.
      I'd love to create a photo book too.

    21. I would get a nice comfy chair so i could watch my special girl play in the backyard-suziehand@gmail.com

    22. ds's are wanted this year
      and there will be lots of cheer
      please help make dreams come true
      I promise to thank you.


    23. And the winner is suzie!

      Congratulations, Random.org picked you as my winner so you'll be off to do some shopping - hope you have your chair picked out :)

      Thanks everyone for your entries, I wish I had more vouchers to giveaway!

      If you are interested I have another giveaway coming next week, and I'll promote it on Facebook and Twitter again so you know when it goes live xoxo

    24. I never spend gift vouchers on myself. But as I'm fighting the boombah, I might get myself some new work out gear and even a pair of shoes if the money stretches that far. Will promote on twitter and FB too. bronnie (at) dizzydaisy (dot) com

    25. I'm extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it's rare to see a
      nice blog like this one these days.

    26. When someone writes an paragraph he/she retains the idea of a
      user in his/her mind that how a user can know it. Thus that's why this article is great. Thanks!
