Do you want $500 to spend for the holidays at Wal-Mart? This contest is being hosted by Wal-Mart and Nickelodeon (the company that provides programing for children).
Part of the contest is to give money saving tips for the holidays - but each contest is a little different. (I'm posting several contests here so that you can get multiple entries and I can too... but this isn't all of the contests by far.)
My best money saving tip is: To give gifts of your time. Each year we try to have some things on our Christmas lists that don't require going out to buy a gift item - we will give gifts of our time. For instance - give someone a coupon for babysitting... for doing the dishes every night for a week... the laundry... a weekend without football. One year my husband gave me "The 12 Months of Christmas" which involved a coupon for each month of the next year giving me a gift of his time... BEST gift ever!
