The Fall Y'all Giveaway

The Contest is now closed! Thanks for playing! I'll post the winner tomorrow morning! Hint, One of you was exactly right!

Shannon over at rocks in my dryer is hosting a fall giveaway! This means that you can go on her site, browse all the possible give-aways, then go to the sites and enter! I thought this might be a good way to shamelessly raise my blog traffic get to know new people, so I started to think about what I might give away.

Now, y'all know that I'm a cheapoholic eh? So what could I give away that wouldn't cost me much? Then I got it. I LOVE living in the city I do for many reasons, not the least being we have a Children's Place Outlet. This is where all the clothes come to be marked down. And down and down. I rarely shop at thrift stores anymore as I can often get new clothes cheaper than ones that pretty much have the knees worn out of. So, I trotted off to the outlet (not that I need an excuse I go about 2-3 time a month) and picked up a little girl outfit (size 24 months) that I am giving away to one lucky reader.

All you have to do is leave a comment. But, not just any comment, you have to guess how much I paid for this outfit. The commenter closest to my actual cost, (including tax) will find herself the winner and I will ship it to your home for free. A brand new Children's Place Outfit, completely free! Don't have a girl? This makes a great shower gift!

There is only one other catch. It's minor really. You have to have a Canadian address. Now, y'all understand eh? I am cheap and it is rather expensive to ship across the border. But this does not exclude Americans. If you want to enter and say have it shipped to Catherine or Dawn or Janet for their new daughters, you are more than welcome to do so. But I will not be able to ship it any place with a zip code.

Now my American friends who may be feeling terribly left out, you have Target, Victoria's Secret, Bath and Body Works, Sonic Drive Thru, Chick-fil-a and Black Friday and virtually everything is cheaper for you! All we've got is this little contest. Y'all realize that's pretty sad eh?

So, look at the outfit and leave your best guess. The closest guess wins. If two people are exactly the same distance apart, the first of you two to guess wins. One guess per person please! The guesses close Thursday at 7:00pm MST. I will post the winner on Friday, November the 2nd.

So here it is, a brand new outfit, full price would have cost $21.20 including tax. That's 2 for $20 for the pants and shirt! Have fun guessing!

I wasn't going to enter since my girls are too big now (how depressing that they no longer fit into size 24 months), but then I figured I could always put it on Tyler to freak hubby out!! So, my guess is $4.22.
