Horrible. Just a loaf of bread.
This year is not turning out so well. I thought that now that I have my own laptop and can sweep whenever I want that I would do great. No such luck.

I decided this year to keep a tally of my wins. In January I have won seven times, the biggest win was a $250.00 Healthy Home Vacuum from Bissell. All together, it was not a bad month. I won approximately $500.00 worth of stuff.

The only thing I received was a Duracell $20.00 battery charger from a contest that ended on December 31st. But no wins in January yet.

At the beginning of the month I revamped my contest entry methods to increase the number of contests I entered but it hasn't seem to help. It is still early, new wins may be on the way. I still like my new entry process because it has reduced the time I need to spend on entering contests.

January was my best month since I started sweeping this last Sept. I won $550.00 worth of stuff among which was a $380.00 Italian leather purse. Good start to 2008!

My January total is: $11.99 BUT, I went on my first trip win last weekend (ARV$1875). :jet:
I won the trip last year, so I don't count it as a January win.

I've burnt out, so only enter a select few. So I'm guessing February may not be much. I did get a co-worker hooked on sweeping, so I'm living it up thru him for the time being.

* Double movie pass to advanced screening of Untraceable

This was my first trip win and we are thrilled! It just seems that once I found out that I won the trip, since then I've been slacking off. I know this month I need to get back into my groove or else I will continue to slide. Here I come Jamaica!

I wish I had better luck with instant wins.

January was my first real month "sweeping". (A few days in December.)
I won:

Loaf of bread
"Enchanted" Prize Package
Copy of "The President's Table"

My guess is the value is $80. The package had the soundtrack, 2 movie tickets, a stuffed animal, a t-shirt...and something else. I thought "The President's Table" sounded interesting, but now I'm daunted by the task of actually reading it...

I hope I get some instant wins this month! Those are fun. The loaf of bread is my only instant win, and everyone has been winning those! :D
