Thankful Thursday: Winning Online Giveaways from The Binondo Mommy and Ice Cream and Chocolates PH

Who loves free stuff? I do! I love joining online contests and giveaways. For my first #ThankfulThursday post, I'd like to share two of the most recent giveaways I won.

Cheese Pimiento Spread by Tita Vickie's

I won this through a giveaway hosted by Sally of The Binondo Mommy. I discovered her blog when I was googling Caridad Bears and I had been following her since. At the time, she was celebrating the blog's 1st year anniversary and was giving away tons of prices. I think I was one of the last entries.

It had been a few weeks since she she sent me a message that I won the raffle. I was supposed to contact Tita Vickie directly to arrange how I will get my price but I just kept on forgetting. I finally remembered last Tuesday and sent an SMS to Tita Vickie. Tita Vickie's spreads are freshly made to order so we agreed to meetup today. Boy was I too grateful. She gave me a big tub of the yummiest, creamiest, tastiest Cheese Pimiento. There was also a bonus small tub of the wonderfully spicy Tuna Spread. Yum!

P500 Store Credit to Cudsly

When I was pregnant, I learned the convenience of online shopping. Cudsly is one of the most trusted baby online shops and I had always been a fan. The shop has some unique items I don't find on other online stores. When Em of Ice Cream and Chocolates PH hosted a giveaway for P500 shopping credits for Cudsly, I immediately joined. The timing couldn't be more perfect when she announced the winner since we were running low on diapers and snacks.

Within a few minutes of getting the shopping code, I had my order confirmed. My total exceeded the credit I got. I usually prefer to pay with PayPal or BPI Mobile Transfer. I decided I'd try Cash on Delivery for the first time. After 3 business days, the package arrived. Im guessing it could have been sooner if not for tropical storm Mario causing delays with everything. I settled my balance with no hassle at all. It's just like buying from the supermarket except i did not have to brave the traffic of the metro.

Oh, we also got more freebies too. There were small sachets of MD Moms products. I had always been wanting to try them so I wonder how they've read my mind. We got three boxes of Baby MumMum from Cudsly so I decided to share them to Mila's cousin. Best way to show gratitude is to share your blessings, right?

There are too many things in the world I don't have. I just have to look at what I got and I clearly see I am blessed. With so many things to be thankful for, big or small, it's good to always pay it forward. Maybe next time I'll be hosting my own giveaway too.
