{CLOSED} iPad2 Giveaway

Yes. You read that right.

We’ve had some great giveaways these last few weeks…but I’ve saved the granddaddy of them all for last…

This sleek little old tablet could be yours this Christmas!

(And by little old tablet, I mean…brand spanking new machine that is going to wow your socks off.)

This week, it’s a 16 GB WiFi iPad2, your choice of black or white, your choice of polyurethane cover.




We’ll also get you hooked up with the digital (or print) versions of each of my cookbooks, The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook (print version, digital not yet available) along with The $5 Dinner Mom Does Breakfast and Lunch and my latest e-book, Holiday Entertaining Guide!

(My cookbooks are like the gift that keeps on giving! You’ll get to hear your friends and loved ones share how much less $$$ they are spending at the grocery store after they read and learn the method to the $5 Dinners madness!)

    I really enjoyed your advice on how to save on fruits and veggies at the store. My boys love all fruits, but buying them can be expensive, especially organic. Thanks for your help!

    Friday-I like the tip about keeping snacks in the car (I had to do my purse so they wouldn’t freeze) for long shopping trips. Not only is this healthier for me so I will avoid the convenience of fast food, but a big money saver while running errands with my kids.
