Just about everything I buy for competitions I don't need and have to hide it in my undies drawer or someone like that. Currently being hidden are boxes of Nutrigain and Chocolates. I'd hide all those milk drinks as well, but that would be nasty so try to drink them whilst out.

No wonder I'm getting fatter by the minute.

I have about 15 rolls of Glad Wrap in my pantry.

At least it will eventually get used and wont go off!

I hope it gets used before the next Glad Wrap comp.

As long as toothpaste doesnt expire I have enough to last the next 3 generations in our family!! They take up half my linen closet and have many grocery bags full stashed EVERYWHERE around the house, as least I'll have plenty of bar codes for the next comp :)

When I go shopping I look for anything that has a competition on it. I only buy the products I actually do need ,but buy the brand that has the competition.

All I can say is thank you Mum and Dad for having 7 kids. :) If I lived on my own there would be no way I could enter the staore comps that I do.

I have a confession, I bought Viva stainless steel wipes recently and I don't have stainless steel appliances! I couldn't find the glass wipes and the comp was closing.... I gave the wipes to my mother in law.:D

I don't have kids so buying things like baby food or nappies would be a waste of $$ for me. I have plenty of washing powder, deodorant, sunscreen, shampoo, loo paper, dry dog food, cleaning stuff, magazine subscriptions, Masterfoods products, shower gel, tampons, and body lotion, to name a few!

I buy whatever has a comp, somewhere along the way someone will make use of it. I make up hampers for our customers at xmas and for friends (only supportive ones though anyone who calls me a lucky bi*ch after saying its not fair gets zip!! Loads of teenage boys in our family so thats great for deodorant!!! I never have to fear of running low on laundry and hair products, also find it a great way to try things out... Lol won't need firelighters again ever!!!
The only ones I stay away from are the diet drinks as I am 5ft 2 and 46kg and I just haven't found a nice way of gifting diet products yet!!!

I don't think I am EVER going to need Cussons body wash again :P:P

probably already replied to this earlier (but can't be bothered checking), but yes sometimes. For example, I don't have a cat but when there was a cat food comp to win a trip to Paris. I spent $1 on a pack to get one entry in. Depends a lot on the cost of the item. If it's low cost then I'd be more inclined to purchase. Though I may enter the Best & Less comp to try to win a Macbook...I don't have kids so $20 a lot to spend, but a Mac is on my wishlist.

I was going to buy a bag of carrots for a Woolworths comp but i thought that was going a bit too far since I don't even shop there lol. But the comp sounded really good. hmm maybe I still will buy that bag of carrots.

I went looking for that same bag of carrots at Woolies and they didn't have them so I complained to the on-duty manager - he thought I was completely bonkers!

I bought a Hills clothesline for a family trip to Disneyland beginning of 2009! I won the trip in October but not through that comp - through radio comp that cost me nothing!
