Announcing the Winners of the January Blog Drawing

Prizes for the drawing this month on the Karen Hellier blog

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all staying warm and cozy on this January day. It is 37 degrees here in North Georgia, but I love it because I think Winter should be cold so that we enjoy the warmer months more!

The Winners of the January Blog Drawing Are:

Okay, on to what I am sure you are all anxious to see: the winners of the January drawing on the blog.

Without further ado, here they are:

1st Prize: $25.00 Amazon gift card: Linda Ramos

2nd Prize: $15.00 Starbuck’s gift card: Anne Ripley

3rd Prize: Avon hand cream and lip balm: Ceci Brown

Congratulations to all of the winners, and thank you all for subscribing to this blog and sharing the posts. I hope that each and every one of you wins a prize at some point. I will be posting the next drawing toward the end of this month. But keep sharing the posts that you like this month in order to get extra entries into the monthly drawing.

I am currently working on a post about how to get things for free, so I am sure you won’t want to miss that. I get free things every month. Some come in my mailbox, some I use coupons for and some I get by just paying attention. I will be publishing that soon, so stay tuned, and have a good week!

How to Get Entries Into the January Blog Drawing

Prizes for the drawing this month on the Karen Hellier blog

It’s time once again for the monthly drawing. There’s only a short window to enter this month as the contest ends on Wednesday, 1/31 at midnight Eastern Standard time!

As you can see to the left, the drawing this month will be for the following prizes:

Prizes for January 2018


1st prize: A $25.00 Amazon gift card

2nd prize: 1 $15.00 Starbuck gift card

3rd prize: An Avon hand cream and lip balm

There are 2 ways to be entered into this drawing to win a prize:

  1. Sign up as a subscriber to the Karen Hellier blog


2.If you already are a subscriber, or you have just subscribed and want more chances to win, share the posts on the blog by using the sharing buttons below each post, and then leaving a comment below the post that you shared that month stating which social media sites you shared it on.

And new this month, I am giving extra chances for the drawing for any post you share within the month of the drawing. So, any posts you share from my blog that I posted in January, that you ALSO leave a comment on under the post will get you extra chances into the drawing. 

It’s important to mention that you must share from the social media icons directly below each post AND leave a comment under that same post about which social media sites you shared it on. Contacting me separately to tell me which sites you shared it on will not get you into the drawing.

How to Leave a Comment

I have had a few people contact me to tell me they couldn’t figure out how to leave a comment. Having trouble finding out how to leave a comment? Go to the top of each post and click on the word “comment” and that will take you to the comment section.

Thanks, and good luck to all of my subscribers in this month’s drawing. I wish you all could win!

If you are not yet a subscriber to my blog, put your email address in the space on the top right of the front page of my blog, right next to this post where it says, “Subscribe to blog via email.” That’s it…you will be entered into the drawing for October. AND you will be notified each time I post something on this blog about saving money or working from home.

If You Are Already a Blog Subscriber…


If you are already a subscriber, to be entered into the prize drawing for October, scroll down to the end of this blog post and click on one of the sharing buttons so your friends that follow you on social media can learn about this contest also, and find out more about how to save money/work from home. Once you do that though, you also need to leave a comment below this post that you shared the article, and on what site you shared it (Facebook, Twitter, etc) to help me track who has shared the contest information.

Each person will receive one contest entry, either by subscribing to the blog as a new subscriber, or sharing this post if you are already a subscriber. I would love it if you shared this post to more than one social media site, but that will still earn you only one entry to keep things fair to everyone.

Contest Dates

This contest starts on 10/15/17 and ends on 10/31/17. The winners will be announced on Wednesday, 11/1/17.

I look forward to seeing who wins this month’s prizes!  And thank you for subscribing to my blog!
