You know you’re addicted to competitions when…



Here’s a fun post for all the experienced and newbie compers out there! I think you can relate!

You know you’re addicted to competitions when…..

  • You buy dog food and you don’t have a dog.
  • You have a pantry full of food with no labels.
  • You miss your stop because you were too busy entering competitions on your phone.
  • You don’t think twice about going out of your way to shop at a different supermarket.
  • You enter your friends and family in competitions with their emails just for the fun of it.
  • You call/email promoters to put in a ‘good word’.
  • You check your emails whenever you have a spare moment, seeing if you’ve won anything.
  • You pull over and take note of abandoned trolleys for the trolley tracker competitions at supermarkets.
  • You drive your family to a car dealership just to put an entry in the barrel even though you can’t afford a new car.
  • You get excited when the mailman comes to your house.
  • Your passwords are all positive affirmations to win prizes.
  • You tell people about your latest favourite competition and get the eye roll way too many times.
  • You have a draw that’s overflowing with barcodes and receipts but you can’t seem to throw them away.
  • You think in rhymes and try and to recruit family to help you with a 25 word or less answer.
  • You regularly Google ‘win’, ‘competition’ and ‘prizes’.
  • The perfect day to you is staying home and comping!

It could go on and on. Happy comping everyone!

What do you want to win 2017?



Can you believe 2017 is here? How did 2016 fly by so fast. After tallying up my prizes for 2016 (all small wins), I’ve realised I want 2017 to be even bigger! Each new year arrives with new competitions, wins and opportunities to connect to fellow compers. We get to swipe the slate clean and start over again. I must say I prefer new beginnings than endings.


Each year the competition or sweepstake world gets bigger and with that comes more people entering. But I believe there’s enough prizes and fun to go around so don’t despair, 2017 is going to be amazing!


So, what do you want to win in 2017? Here’s what I want to win to give you some ideas (like you need any help!):


  • Car – Any will do.
  • Cash or gift cards – preferable 3 figures or more.
  • Tickets to events – New Years Resolution is to save more so I need to find more ‘free’ things to do.
  • European Cruise – Mum’s dream
  • Caravan – Mum’s dream No. 2
  • iPad – To read on the train
  • Mac desktop computer – Laptop is getting a little slow these days.
  • New bed – Preferably a new bed frame French style
