(Because everything is better with two exclamation marks.) I’ve just spent a couple of hours entering dozens of giveaways – I can think of far worse and less productive ways to spend my weekend. If you’re too lazy to look for giveaways yourself, you’re in luck! Here are three great giveaways:

Claire from “Bless My Nest” is giving away a set of “What to Expect When Expecting” books. The odds look pretty good right now, so enter it quick! It ends tomorrow. Go here to enter.

Peggy of “PJH Designs” fame is giving away a $25 gift card to Home Depot, also known as Depository of Random Awesomeness. The giveaway ends in less than 48 hours, so you might want to hurry. Go thataway to enter.

And last but definitely not least, Tracy from “Owl Be Craftin'” is giving away a pack of Tim Holtz Word Sticks. I won’t even attempt to describe them – just click the link and check them out. The giveaway will end on Friday the 13th.

*resists the urge to say “May the odds be ever in your favor!”*

I spend way too much time online and I love getting free stuff. To be more precise, I love winning free stuff. Somehow, knowing that I beat several other people in my pursuit of free stuff makes it that much more enjoyable, even if my effort consisted of filling out a small form and posting a blurb on Twitter. Until it gets a bit warmer outside (I refuse to go out when it’s 50 degrees out – this is supposed to be Vegas, damn it!), I’ll concentrate my entrepreneurial efforts on entering every small-scale online giveaway with good odds (1:15 or better) I can find. I shall be assisted by my cranky old laptop, a fridge full of coke and a fairly advanced search script I came up with during one of my infamous bouts of insomnia.

I’ll be posting a fair amount of links to said giveaways here, as well as on my twitter account, so stay tuned – who knows, you might win something too!
