Giveaway: Choose from seven $25 gift cards

It’s a brand-spankin’ new year.  That means “out with the old, in with the new”.  Time for a new direction, goals or pursuits.

Lots happen when January rolls around.  Super Bowl is this comin’ Sunday!   Have you replaced your 2008 calendars yet? Started a new fitness routine? Implemented any New Year’s resolutions?

9th giveaway

In keeping with the “New” theme, your $25 gift card choices are:

  • P.F. Chang’s China Bistro – if you love Chinese food or wanna celebrate Chinese New Year which began earlier this week!
  • Home Depot – need new tools to complete a home project?
  • Starbucks – the all-around good pick-me-up!
  • Foot Locker – gear to get you back into shape or like me, lose the pounds you picked up during the holidays!
  • Staples – maybe you need a 2009 calendar or office supplies to get organized!
  • – because real fans “sport” their team’s stuff!
  • Barnes & Noble – maybe you’ve had your eye on a particular book or DVD?

To enter drawing, answer these 2 questions in the “Post a Comment” section below:

  1. What goal(s) or projects do you have planned this year?
  2. Which gift card you’d like to receive if you’re the winner: P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Home Depot, Starbucks, Foot Locker, Staples,, or Barnes & Noble

Aside from walking off the extra pounds, I’d say my one real goal is getting through my stack of books collecting dust. I am bound and determined to read one book each month (whether that really happens remains to be seen, LOL)! *Hmm, note to self: Maybe have a book giveaway?!*

Drawing will close on Monday, February 2nd @ 10pm PST. One entry per person, please.  One winner will be chosen at random (not based on responses) using Random Integer Generator and will be announced Tuesday morning.

I enjoyed reading everyone’s answers!!! From redoing floors to gardening to just getting organized, many of you have all sorts of home projects planned this year! How exciting! I’ll be sure to offer the Home Depot gift card again in my next giveaway.

  • My goal is to train hop across America this summer! – Heather

  9. My biggest goal is to be more patient with my children and appreciative of their good qualities (honest, loving, kind, fun) instead of always nagging and complaining about things that are not quite so good (back talk, messiness, procrastination, etc).

    Starbucks is a family favorite, so that would have to be my pick.

  11. Goal #1 is to organize my home…room by room…no matter how long it takes.

    Goal #2 is to cover my cement patio with some decorative pavers and start a container garden to give it a new look for Spring/Summer.

    Goal #3 is to walk 30 minutes or more outside every day…solely for the purpose of enjoying my surroundings.

  12. One goal of mine is to keep up with my grades which shouldn’t be too hard since it all comes naturally anyway. But I do want to rank even higher than I already do. I’m determined to become a better person as a whole and act like more of a role model.

    Barnes and Noble!!! =]

  20. My plan for this year is to replace the carpet in our bathroom, my cat whom I’ve had for 12 years had to undergo expensive radioactive iodine therapy for a hyperthyroid, she lived for one year after she was treated and she recently had to be euthanized when her kidneys failed. She had a great difficulty using her litter box as her kidneys were failing and had soiled much of the bathroom carpet, I hope to be able to have the carpet replaced from Home Depot. Thankyou for holding this nice contest
