Debt Free Bribing- Now Extended!

>> Monday, July 14, 2008

OK, I know bribing doesn't usually begin until the 20th. And it's only the 15th. And now it's extended until August 1st so we can play with the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival! Because this give away is big. Huge. Bigger than big. This giveaway can CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!!

And since it can do that (yes, really!) I am going to run it 7 extra days so you can tell people far & wide.

This month I am giving away Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover and Total Money Makeover Workbook.

This will totally change the way you think about your money. It will totally change the way you think about your debt. It will totally change the way you think... Period.

Ready? Here's how we play:

1) Leave me a nice comment. That gets you entered once. (PS- If you don't leave me a way to contact you then you can't win. Make sure you leave an email or you are signed in with Google and I can reach your profile page.)

2) Write a nice little post on your blog. Link to this post. That gets you another entry.

3) Make sure you tell everyone who visits from your blog to let me know you sent them. For every comment that mentions your name I will give you another entry.

So easy! And the more people you send me the better your chances to win. So give me some linky love and get your readers over here!

The random number generator spins at 1 pm on August 1 so get those posts up and keep reminding your readers to visit and drop your name!

And if you're visiting from Bloggy Giveaways Carnival poke around a bit. I don't mind. I'm sure I've some snacks somewhere and I'll whip up some lemonade and steep some tea. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy my little home on the internet.


green3 10:13 PM  

Don't enter me into the drawing since I already have this. I just wanted to convince your readers that you MUST sign up for this giveaway. She's right - it will change your life.

Melody 10:25 PM  

Since hubby and I had a long, lenghty discussion about finances tonight I think we definitely need to change our life so please count me in.

For once I have my post up on time.


The Fritz Facts 7:25 AM  

I would love this! I have been trying to figure out a way to get Dave, but hadn't worked it into the budget quite yet.

Bubbi 7:33 AM  

Hey Jodi,
I have Dave and your right! So I am also just spreading the word but do not need to be entered in the drawing.


pjmomof3boys 9:57 PM  

I cannot wait to take the FPU class this fall! I really hope we don't have to announce to the class just HOW FAR in debt we are. It's not only embarrassing, but I'm pretty sure I would throw up on the person in front of me if I actually heard the number spoken aloud...

I need a financial makeover, so work your magic, Dave!

Carisa 8:47 AM  

I have really enjoyed reading about what you have done to lower bills and stuff. I have started,but i'm sure there is more.

I have just started a blog so I will try to figure how to link it to here. If you would like to read it www.lowefam.wordpress.com
