Is Heather B. in group (1-10) with the email address I think your email may have been delivered to junk mail and erased, if so.

Becky L. January 5, 2010 at 1:03 am

I can’t believe I actually won your cookbook! I can’t wait to get it!!!. I let out a squeal the other day when I saw the email. My husband was in the other room and heard me and commented on it later when I told him about it!!

The coupon binder system I was talking about was when you were showing yours but I guess it was on a tv show video, come to think of it. Thanks for sharing and helping us get organized. Just gotta stay on top of things and don’t let things get out of hand! :0)


Vickie E. January 5, 2010 at 7:26 am

Still hoping to win one :)!!!


Shauna Deaton January 5, 2010 at 9:43 am

I hope I win this! I really want this book!


Ellen January 5, 2010 at 2:04 pm

Not sure if I’m the Ellen C in the #21-30 slot or not. I have too many email addys & can’t remember which I one I used to sign up for your giveaway. And of course, I most likely emptied things into the trash over the holidays… oh well. I understand that things like that happen (that’s assuming that I’m the one.) :)


Heather Brandt January 5, 2010 at 2:12 pm

I’m just double checking to make sure you didn’t mean that I was a winner….

My name is Heather B (Brandt). and I’ve been out of town so I thought I might have missed your email.

Please try reaching me again if I am the winner. If not, please ignore this comment. I’m just eager to receive your super cookbook if I have in fact won!


Lisa - CT Coupon Chic January 5, 2010 at 4:43 pm

I am SO excited to have won your cookbook Erin! I will be planning my next month’s worth of meals from it – yay! You rock!


Trista January 5, 2010 at 6:20 pm

Love ing your website, and the recipes, I can relate to almost everything you post on here!


Deb M January 5, 2010 at 7:52 pm

Thank you so much! I’m one of the winners – I can’t believe I actually won something, especially this book! I saw the GMA spot and asked for it for Christmas but Santa never delivered it. Maybe you are my Santa?

Thanks again!!!!


Stasia January 5, 2010 at 9:08 pm

I am one very happy winner! Thank you so much, and a thank-you-in-advance from my soon-to-be (frugally) well fed family.

Thanks again!

I’m really sorry to ask this – The Deb M in 51-60. I have several emails, and checked all of them, but didn’t see it. Is it a mccann225, debsfreshstart, or greysbailey1 address? Thanks!

While I know Karen M is probably very common, I am afraid my junk mail box may have deleted this email. I see a Karen M both on 131-140 and 141-150. You can’t blame a girl for hoping can you.
