What Would YOU Do With a $500 Amazon Gift Card?

Hmmm….good question, huh? Well, answering that question is One Way that You Enter This Giveaway, so make sure you think on it. If I won a $500 Amazon Gift Card, I would likely buy:

1.  A Bunch of Healthy Living Titles that I have my eye on.  Right now, the books that I have in my cart at Amazon include:

The Great Cholesterol Myth. Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won’t Prevent Heart Disease

Great Cholesterol Myth

2.  A Pressure Canner.

I am NOT a canner.  I’m quite afraid of it, in fact. But I’ve been told that canning meat is super simple with this Pressure Canner.

Can’t Wait to Get this and Start Canning Meat and such!

Can’t Wait to Get this and Start Canning Meat and such!

3.  Super Cozy Up and Get My Feet Warm Slippers.

We keep our house freezing a little chilly.  And my feet are COLD!  I used to wear indoor shoes in the house, but I am trying to go barefoot due to learning that wearing even slight heels can contribute to “Mummy Tummy”.  Great, huh?

I don’t usually ask for anything for Christmas, but these (or some other slippers) are on my list this year.

Sorel Nakiska Slide Slippers

4. EMF “Find Out How Much You Are Being Zapped” Meter.

Fun topic, eh?  I am not sure I want to know, but…this meter will tell you how much radiation is coming off of your devices–or your neighbors!.
