Happy 1st Birthday Thrifty Texas Penny- This Calls for a Giveaway (or 6)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Today is my 1st Blogging Birthday!  My sweet husband left me this delicious surprise before he left for work:

In case you’re wondering- it’s a “cake” made from chocolate covered raisins and hershey kisses.  We don’t spend a lot of money on gifts for each other, but he’s made many things over the years that I will keep forever. Those mean so much more than any store bought item ever could. He’s a keeper! 

It’s hard to believe how far this site has come in a year.  I started out wanting this site to be a place to help others learn to save money and a place to help me stay organized and productive (I don’t do well without structure in my life)  So far it’s been successful on both counts.  From just a handful of faithful readers Thrifty Texas Penny has now expanded to hundreds of subscribers and fans.  I am so thankful for the encouragement you all give me to keep this site going.

This site is for YOU, my readers.  There are thousands of frugal websites and deal blogs out there, but you choose to read mine-a mix of frugal living articles with coupons :-).  I am honored and thankful that you choose to spend your valuable time reading what I have to write.  So to celebrate 1 year of fabulous fans and to thank you all for being so wonderful, I’m throwing a party with giveaways!  I have 6 prizes this week.  $10 Paypal or Amazon GC, $15 Paypal or Amazon GC, (2) $5 CVS GCs, and (2) free 6 week advertising spots on my site.  A little bit of something for everyone. :-)

Here are links to each of the giveaways and the requirements for them.  You’ll be able to enter each giveaway one time. All giveaways will end at 10:00 pm CST Tuesday, July 19th.  Winners will be announced on Thursday or Friday, July 21/22.  You will need to check back here to see if you’ve won. 

All giveaways are now closed.  Winners will be verified and posted here by Friday morning.
$10 Paypal, Amazon GC or CVS GC  (be an e-mail subscriber)

$15 Paypal, Amazon GC or CVS GC (be an e-mail subscriber and fill out a 5 minute questionnaire)
