Just brought..................................

dog food, cat food, and pistachios (but.....no dog, no cat, and no need pistachios !)

Yes I know what you mean Polarbird. I don't have either of the pets and I hate pistachios but still bought stuff for each comp. Figured I could give the pet food away and I am sure I can find someone who likes this type of nut.

Lately i've been buying my dog schmackos so I can enter in a comp to win $15 000 cash...she doesn't seem to mind one little bit though :P

If I take her with me for a walk down the shops, if we go to the supermarket, she expects them! She looks up at me and tries to ransack the shopping bag for them!

I was on the "lite and Easy" diet few month ago, But i bought a lot of food ( chocolate, yogurt ects..) to entre competitions.
Anyway, I eated them afterall, as i don't need to lose weight and i only joined Lite and Easy to enter the competition.

I also bought schmackos and dog food, But my dog(chihuahua) don't eat dog food and schmackos, so i have to give them to my friends.
Cat food competitions are great, cos both my cat and dog can eat them, and they love to change brands every once in a while.

I'm about to go buy some Kantong's to go enter the red lantern comp. Not sure what we'll do with it because the children hate rice and every stir fry I've ever made.

I haven't really bought stuff I wouldnt use but comps have led me to try a new/different product. Which is ok- i get to try something new and (potentially) tasty AND I get to enter comps!

Thinking back over the last year, the ONLY new product I bought that DIDN'T have a comp on it was miniature Cornettos....yum! Our diet is based on comping foods!

I recently bought two packets of Birdseed for my friends feathered pets so I could enter to win the $10,000. Left them along with a note at her front door.

I bought a Covergirl Pearls colours lipstick to win a years supply of makeup and a pearl necklace. The only problem was it was quite expensive and the colours in the new series didnt really suit me. At least the product says what it does! It's a 10 hour colour stay and I could not get the stuff off! After trying the testers my hands looked dreadful for days!



I mustn't get distracted. Hmm, distracted, that's a funny word. I wonder if someone can get tracted?

We have no pets but have bought dog food for a comp. Ended up giving it to a friend as hubby said he didnt think it would be right putting dog food in the local church canned food drive bag. I dont know why? I wasnt expect people to eat it themselves!

I've just bought People magazine to enter the $10,000 scratch and win - and have found that there are crosswords that I can enter to win cash too.

Pity about the girls plastered around in the mag though ......... not my cup of tea!!!

Yeah know what you mean dbz. Thats why I am so thankful that others post the comps here in the forum as I would not buy magazines like people or Ralph or any of those things myself on moral grounds. But if the prizes are (normal) then I will enter the ones that are posted and very grateful to those who do them.

Hamper tinned corned beef for the current holiday comp.

The cats won't eat it and hubby says he won't eat it if the cats won't. :P
posted 27-8-2004 @ 04:06 PM www


yep and oh so many times.
....but then I either forgot to enter the comp, or didn't enter because I dinn'th think I'd win.
in the same way that I always say that I can't wait to win Tattslotto, but I never play.

Go figure... me thinks there's something loose upstairs.

I bought CSR sugar last week, and emptied it into a plastic bag!
