No, I didn’t win the lottery. I won something better because I won’t have to pay taxes on it, or share it with a group of twelve machinists from Detroit!
Pinyo at Moolanomy offered The Best Wedding Tips and Stories Giveaway. I wrote A Frugal Girl’s Decidedly Not Frugal Wedding and linked back to Moolanomy because I liked the topic. I completely forgot it was a contest until I received a lovely e-mail from Pinyo this morning.
There were a total of 33 entries that are eligible for the $50 Amazon gift card (or cash transfer via Revolution Money Exchange) and little old me won.
Thank you Pinyo! I was going to promise to save, invest or spend the money frugally. Then I reconsidered. Instead I’m going to use the money to get a pedicure and have my eyebrows threaded (ladies, if you’ve never done this you should definitely try it!) to prettify myself for the Bar Mitzvah I’m going to in a few weeks. I was going to do it on my own dime, but now I’ll do it on yours.
I hope you feel good knowing you’re making the world prettier. I know I do.
