My husband and I got ourselves into quite a financial mess, after him needing an operation, losing his job, then me sustaining a crippling back injury. Debts mounted that badly that I became afraid to open the mail or answer the phone to another debt collector or finance company.
Leading up to the birth of our first child, we finally got ourselves on the right track. So, I decided I needed to do something to cure my fear of the evil phone and mailbox. I started asking for baby samples, as I was overwhelmed as a new mum. That lead to trial websites, surveys and competitions. I can now say my fear is cured. Less than a year later, my list is endless. Nappies, baby food, beauty products, haircare, home cleaning, food, DVD’s, movie tickets (I once one a free movie ticket while I was watching a movie that I had won tickets to), movie premieres, and my favourite- the 60inch 3D television I won.
It takes effort, don’t get me wrong. But I love the feeling of winning or getting chosen! I am addicted!
