Update:  This contest is now CLOSED.  Stay tuned for the winner announcement!  Thanks to everyone who participated and for your wonderful feedback!

I am so excited...! This marks my 200th post! I originally started this blog as a mere outlet for a bored stay-at-home mom, and in a mere couple of months it has grown into something more than an outlet. It has become one of my hobbies and my daily guilty pleasure! I am so grateful for all of you wonderful readers - I'm honored that you think that my crazy mad ramblings are interesting enough to keep up with!

In celebration of this milestone, I'm going to be giving away $200 in coupons! That's $1 in coupons for every post...! Please remember to leave me a SEPARATE comment for each entry, because otherwise they won't be counted:
  1. I'm toying with the idea of a new site design...for an entry just leave a comment with design suggestions, or designer recommendations.
  2. Leave a comment with what you would like to see on My Precious Pennies in the future.
  3. Post about this giveaway on your blog and leave the permalink.
  4. Subscribe to My Precious Pennies, or let me know if you've already subscribed.
    Make sure you leave the email address that you subscribed under!
  5. Take my button and post it on your blog, or let me know you've already done so.

I will be drawing a winner first thing in the morning on Sunday September 21st. The winner will then have 24 hours to get in touch with me, because I want to be able to send the coupons out on Monday...!

Thanks so much for being with me for my first 200 posts...and hopefully you'll still be here for the 2000th post!!!

Whatever you do, keep the colors. I like 'em!

I like the layout you have now! I can't think of anything I would change.

I think this design is so cute, I'd really be sad to see the little birdie go!

Thanks for offering this fun giveaway! :)

I enjoyed reading your posts about Walgreens deals. I'd like to see more posts about WAGs, since I don't have a CVS nearby. :)

Oooh I love contests! I have your button on my blog and am subscribed through bloglines (if that counts). I will post about your contest on my blog too!

I like your colors, they're nice and calm, not at all distracting.

However, I would "clean up" all of the text and advertisements on your home page. I think it's overwhelming the amount of information that's on the side bars.

No Change Needed!

Thanks, Kathy

Cute blog! The only thing I think I would change is to put your recieved freebies in a scroll down... all those words are a little much down the right side. Then you could move your ads around and make them more noticeable as well.

Katie said...

I really like the design. Easy on the eyes. I also love to find good deals. Thanks.

I really like your blog and I would not change a thing. Your colors are nice and it is very easy to navigate. The things I like best and would like to see more are the giveaways galore and the pics of your mailbox of goodies. You can't go wrong with hosting giveaways either! I like the Walgreens/CVS savings game posts, coupon info,frugal and decluttering tips,etc. I guess something that I would like to see more of is recipes. You do a great job and I love your blog just the way it is. Keep up the goood work. Can't wait for the giveaway for the 500th post!

I think your design is really cute right now!

Hi- just found your blog from entrecard- I really like it!
as a lapsed freebie hunter and couponer this may just be the kick in the ass I need to get back into it :)

Ginny said...

Your design is already cute. I like bright colors though, maybe a brighter color scheme.

I love your blog...the giveaways, the advice, the humor. Thanks.

I subscribe, too.

First of all I like your site but I understand changing it. I just changed mine again. I think a deeper color would be good. Keep the three columns (i can't spell). You might also do something like play money. You know colorful money like Monopoly money. Sounds like fun.
