Steal Diann's Thrift Finds!!

Hi everyone!

Well, I can't believe today is the last day of August! Tomorrow is my birthday and I decided to have a fun month long giveaway party!

There has been so many amazing wonderful people I have met via this blog. The mere fact that so many of you take the time to drop by and leave a comment warms my heart! I can't thank you enough!

So, I wanted to do something fun for all of you that drop by and leave comments. This silly month long giveaway is very different than most giveaways. It's for all you wonderful folks that drop by here, take the time out of your busy schedule's and leave me such kind comments.

Are you ready to hear how you can "Steal Diann's Thrift Finds"?

Here we go! I hope I explain this correctly because it is kind of convoluted. LOL

Every day during the month of September, any post I publish on this blog may or may not have a "secret" hidden thrifty treasure that you can steal. How to tell if the item is "steal-able"? Any time you see something in one of my posts that is in RED, it is stealable.

At the end of the month, you will get to pick 4 items that were posted in red throughout the month to steal from me!

Say during September, 16 of my posts has RED items, you get to go through and chose the 4 you want to steal from me as your gift!

Does that make sense?

Okay, now how do you enter to have a chance?

Because I wanted to do something for all of you that take the time to stop by and leave a nice comment, I am simple going to throw every comment that I receive on any and all posts during the month of September into a hat and a name will be drawn sometime during the first week of October.

So, if I write and publish 20 posts during the month of September and you comment on all of them, you have 20 chances to win. If you comment on 10, you have 10 chances to win. It doesn't matter whether that post has a RED stealable item in it or not, ALL comments during September will count.

However, only ONE comment per post will count. This isn't about if you are a follower or not. If you want to become one, that is wonderful but, this is my thank you to all those of you who do stop by and leave such sweet comments. It really makes my day when I read them.

How will I determine the winner? I am going to literally print out each of the comment sections of each blog post during September and cut them all apart into individual comments, fold them and put them in a big bowl and have the princess reach in and pull out a name. Phew, I will have my work cut out for me at the end of this party! LOL

So, does that sound fun? I hope so! Even I can't wait to see what will be stealable! I will tell you up front that I will have to keep in mind shipping costs so, don't expect to see any cast iron skillets posted in RED! LOL

And, unfortunately, due to shipping costs, only residents of the USA will be able to steal 4 treasures from me. However, since I have so many wonderful International readers, if one of you win, I have a special prize for you! I didn't want to exclude any of you!

Now, this all makes sense to me in my head, but if I left you with any questions, please feel free to comment on this post any time during the month of September and I will answer your questions in this post as well.

So, are you all ready to become thieves? Good! It's time to start casing the joint known is The Thrifty Groove! What little treasures will catch your eye?

Happy Stealing!!
