As you guys know, back on NSD, I held an inspiration contest. People could send in an entry with an idea of something they'd like to see made into a kit. I received everything from photos, color schemes, element ideas, etc. One of my winners was Melissa. She sent in some killer ideas for a couponing kit! Being as couponing is such a popular trend these days, I decided to tackle the kit, and I'm so glad I did. It's not often that I say I really love how a kit turned out, but I have to tell ya... I'm happy with this one!
Here's an early peek for ya!
So, why is this ironic? Well, last night around midnight, I was putting the finishing touches on the kit, and I went into the kitchen. I heard water dripping and realized it was coming from our refrigerator! I cleaned up the mess, threw out what I had to, and prayed that I could get it started again. I ended up having to call a repairman this morning, and they came out and fixed it right away. Unfortunately, we lost a ton of food as I'd recently stocked up on groceries. We had a freezer full of steak and chicken, not to mention all the ice cream, other frozen foods, milk, eggs, cheese, etc. So, we are having a massive BBQ tonight in an effort to eat up as much of the meat as we can before we have to throw it out. I certainly didn't plan on spending an extra $500 on refrigerator repair & food replacement this month. Perhaps I should take up couponing!
If you're still with me this far, you're in luck! This week, I'll be giving the kit to one lucky poster before it's released in the shoppe! All you have to do is post a comment here on the blog under this post. If you post on your blog/fb/twitter about the kit, you can link those posts back here as separate comments for an extra chance to win! You have until 10pm EST Friday May 27 to post. I'll choose a winner before the store goes live!
Have a great day!
