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!

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!.

  1. What a wonderful idea. If I won the raffle I would probably use the card towards an iphone5 as my iphone4 is beginning to flake out on me occasionally. I am already subscribed by e-mail and enjoy your posts.

    • I was thinking about an iphone myself. Interested in instagram – not sure how much that wd help me or just bog me down :).

      • I have trouble with how much people are focused on photographing everything – I find that being as focused as people are these days on photographing detracts from living in and enjoying the moment.

  54. Amazon has a nice new vacuum cleaner I could use, the Panasonic MC-CG917 “OptiFlow” Bag Canister Vacuum Cleaner by Panasonic (which is simply a newer, more colorful version of my current Kenmore model)…looked at so many different canisters, I believe this one would be the best.

  135. If I won the raffle I would likely put this towards buying my father a new bicycle for Christmas. His brand new one was recently stolen out of his front yard and it’s his only mode of transportation. Any money left over would go towards Christmas gifts for the rest of my family.

  136. Kara Bundy says:

    Vitamix!

  137. I would get an Excalibur dehydrator.

  138. I would like the pressure canner and cooker so many possibilities with it :)

  139. There are a lot of good ideas here… I am voting for the vitamix blender… top of my list and then some of the others would be essential oils.. new boots… and the list could go on…

    Thanks!!
    Denise

  140. This is a pretty cool giveaway! I would use the $500 gift card to buy a Royal Berkey Water Filter System, organic black leggings from the brand PACT and some high quality (Great Lakes or NOW Foods) beef gelatin powder! Thanks so much for doing this awesome giveaway. For whoever wins, it will for sure help out a lot! Love your blog, keep up the great work!

  141. I would buy an Excalibur Dehydrator because I have beaten up mine pretty bad!!

  142. I would by a stainless steel pressure cooker and a stainless steel rice cooker! i would also buy cases of diapers and coconut milk! ;0 )

  143. Kristie Lawler says:

    I would love a shower kit for my cast iron tub!

  144. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy answer!
    I have a Vitamix, rather than sugarplums, dancing around my head.

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000RRKQKA/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1YDFJCCEDSZJJ&coliid=IKX1CSOJBA5Y8

  145. We’ve been doing home improvement projects, and I would love to have a nice paint sprayer like this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0026SR0FW/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3A0YLCFMYJ7TO&coliid=ILWU6RM6OOP3E. I shop at Amazon all the time, so it would go fast!

  146. I would get a Vitamix!!! Want one desperately!

  147. Velita Hickle says:

    There are several things on my Amazon wish list : ) Making it Radical Home Ec, Against All Grain, Lodge Dutch Oven…

  148. I would buy a new cookware set and a vacuum cleaner! Thank you!

  149. Cooking stuff…pots, dutch ovens, bamboo cutting boards, etc. Trying to get away from some of the toxic cookware I have!

  150. Stephanie W. says:

    I would love to have a dehydrator and a food processor.

  151. http://www.amazon.com/VitaClay-VM7900-6-Organic-Multi-Cooker–3-2-Quart/dp/B001G8Y33A/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1386715986&sr=1-1&keywords=clay+crock+pot
    I would love this for my family! I would also get healthy vitamins from Garden of LIfe, and probably some things for my family. :)

  152. I would get a Vitamix blender. I want one so bad but it is out of my price range.

  153. I would be able to get my children Christmas gifts! My husband is out of work and we would love to bless each child with at least something that they want. They have each requested a specific lego or Lego friends toy. I would LOVE Susannah Wesley: the Complete Works.

  154. Ruth Johanna says:
  155. I just found your site—thank you so much for all the work you put into this!! If I won, there are SO MANY things I’d love to buy! I’m trying to make our family healthier, as we can afford to do so…fish oil, vitamins and supplements for all of us, a diffuser to try out some essential oils with, and then I might even splurge a little a buy a popcorn air popper!! ;-) And some wool running socks, lol. Thanks again!

  156. D'Ann Smith says:

    This is what I’d get for myself: WBM Himalayan Light # 1301B Natural Air Purifying Himalayan Tall basket salt lamp with Salt chunks, Bulb and dimmer switch

    Then I’d be looking at what the rest of family needs/wants!

  157. I would get a Vitamix for my daughter.

  158. I might look into a kindle of some sort. I have an iPad, but I want something I can see outdoors when reading.

  159. carol graham says:

    I would love to get a book on dehydrating food or lots of 70 % chocolate or tons of hemp seeds or good quality cacao nibs.

  160. Would get a water filter, healthier cook wear I like and some health supplements!

  161. a range

  162. I would buy a pressure canner so I can preserve healthy food for my family! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002808ZM/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_img?_encoding=UTF8&colid=8BMCDELVGRO4&coliid=I239U37HSY6SZV

  163. I work from home and so does my hubby, and what I want most is a laptop so I can move around and work in his office or anywhere else in the house. We were going to buy one for Christmas, but it just didn’t work out.

    I like this one:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-15-6-inch-Notebook-Processor-Integrated/dp/B00G48QLD2/ref=pd_bxgy_computers_text_y

    And then a bag to carry it in – http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tech-Laptop-Shoulder-Optical-Button/dp/B002NQ2ZPC/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1386726356&sr=8-7&keywords=laptop

    This would make me SO VERY HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And free! I would be FREE to hang out with my hubby upstairs and work, or work from the beach or the park or the coffee shop <3

  164. I would spend this on gifts! And maybe an Android tablet for myself and well… baby does need a new pair of shoes. LOL!

  165. Julia Decker says:

    I would love to win a Kitchen Aid Artisan 5 Quart Metallic Mixer!
    http://www.amazon.com/KitchenAid-KSM150PSMC-Artisan-5-Quart-Metallic/dp/B00007IT2P/ref=sr_1_28?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1386728588&sr=1-28

    I had to sell my Kitchen Aid mixer 3 years ago when we were having financial difficulties and losing our home. This would be a huge blessing!

  166. I would buy books for my kids, Yummy Earth Lollipops (the biggest bag!), some gluten-free products, some games/puzzles for my kids, and I might splurge on myself and get a couple of craft supplies.

  167. I’d buy an ASUS PA248Q 24-Inch LED-Lit IPS Professional Graphics Monitor, because I’m passionate about photography and my current cheap monitor is of the “what-you-see-is-NEVER-what-you-get” kind. And with what’s left over I’d buy some health supplements.

  168. I would definitely buy a Nutrimill grain mill!!

  169. Dawn Rearick says:

    I would be keeping our mail person SOOOO busy :) Perennial seed, organic vanilla beans, soap molds,supplies for my handmade bath ‘n body items and on and on and………………..=)

  170. If I had $500, I’d get an actual food processor. The one I have is a little dinky, 2-3 cup for making guacamole and nothing serious. I’ve learned the error of my ways!
    Or, I’d get an ice cream maker so I can start making some sherbet type things so my husband can stop eating the store-bought crap.
    OR, I’d invest in a good set of stainless steel or ceramic cookware. Been only researching this so far so I don’t know what I’d do for type.
    OR…I’d buy a few things of different sized canning jars. The 4 oz jelly jars would be great for baby food!
    Or, maybe I’d get a more serious blender. What I have is fine and it works okay, but it leaks out the top if more than 3 cups are added on medium setting and the bottom leaks when I make my coconut milk. ;_;
    I also have on the list an actual wet vacuum cleaner. The small, pet vacuum to pick up pee spots has run its course and that didn’t even last the first year when I tried to use it anyway. XP
    I’d also like to take that and find a way to buy some goods like a lot of dried beans or oats or coconut oil or cocoa butter or good honey or shea butter or beeswax or the like. I have so many ideas from your website and no products to use for implementation! DX

  171. If I won I could buy supplies to make my household products and make enough to share the love with others for xmas! that would rock!!!

  172. I’d put it into the kitchen… or Christmas.

  173. I also am liking that pressure canner. I need a laptop backpack for my class at the college, and I would like to add another book on DIY steampunk: Steampunk Your Wardrobe: Easy Projects to Add Victorian Flair to Everyday Fashions (Design Originals) Paperback by Calista Taylor. Then I would finish it off with a case of organic coconut milk sans the poison. Thanks for the chance to win the raffle. I am subscribed.

  174. Blendtec for sure – our blender recently died and we’ve moved through the five stages of grieving and think we’re ready to blend again with another blender ;-). http://www.amazon.com/Blendtec-TB-621-20-Total-Blender-Black/dp/B000GIGZXM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1386737332&sr=8-2&keywords=blendtec

  175. Would love to get a pressure cooker and a few more “fun” things…

  176. Books, books, and more books!

  177. hmmm…..vitamix, essential oils or window treatments for my house without curtains!

  178. I have several “Wish Lists” on Amazon & so do my children, so I would share with them & get some things from my lists–mostly books.

  179. valerie sergio says:

    Thanks! I would get a new blender:0

  180. I’d stock up on some bulk real food pantry items and ingredients for all our homemade personal Cate products!

  181. I would probably purchase a food processor. I’ve been wanting one for a long time now.

  182. I am getting myself Dyson DC44 Animal Digital Slim MK2 its been on my amazon list for a while :)

  183. There are a few thinks I would still like to get my kids, but I have been wanting an Excalibur dehydrator for my whole food projects :)

  184. I have been wanting a steam cleaner for the floors and bathroom, a diffuser for EO’s, toys, books, and natural organic foods! The list could go on and on……..:)

  185. I would get many things off my Amazon wish list–diaper covers, canning jars, books, movies, and some specialty food items.

  186. Ice cream maker!

  187. Pong Cases for our cell phones & iPad. Salt lamps for our home! new coffee machine. Tea brewer. I could go on :)

  188. Laura Zimmer says:

    I would get a kindle for myself and my daughter. I would also get a new set of dishes, flatware, and drinking glasses. I have to use my winter dishes year round to have enough to feed everyone. I only have 3 spoons left in my silverware set, as my preschool daughter threw 6 of them away each time she had a yogurt and I didn’t notice and we are mostly drinking out of quicktrip cups.

  189. I need some canning supplies like a new All-American pressure canner. But I am also wanting a yogurt maker or a Kindle Fire. So if I win decisions, decisions, decisions!!!

  190. What a great giveaway! I can think of lots of good uses for a $500 amazon gift card – Fagor pressure cooker, a cool tablet/ipad, lots and lots and lots of books, a new crock pot, a vitamix, a good juicer…

  191. I have several items in my wish list on Amazon. This will enable me to add to our library and some kitchen appliances.

  192. I would splurge and buy myself the largest Le Creuset Dutch Oven I could get my hands on!!!!! The rest would either be supplements to support my son and I’s journey through Lyme disease or Christmas gifts for my son!

  193. Ooooh! My husband, children and friends accuse me of personally being the reason for Amazon’s success. Thank you for this very exciting giveaway!

  194. I could buy all kinds of healthy food stuff!

  195. Hi! If I had $500 to spend, I would either get a laptop, vitamix [I use my mom's and I LOVE it!], or a presto canner like you have shown. I have a water bath canner but would prefer a pressure cooker :)

  196. Jacqueline says:

    I just got a kitchenaid stand mixer, and I really want some of the pasta making attachments.

  197. Sheila Daniel says:

    Kitchen gadgets are on my list… replacing all plastic ware with glass or stainless steel. A KitchenbAid mixer has been on my wish list for a very long time. That would be nice. Thx

  198. What a great giveaway! If I would win, I would use the gift card towards a water filter system. Not sure which one though. I’d have to research.
    I am already subscribed to Whole New Mom. Thank you!!

  199. I’d buy a new pair of my favorite shoes. I got the first pair second-hand years ago, and they’re finally starting to wear out!
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001BLDOP0/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=43MH0WCOOS9O&coliid=I3IDTLAFNEATUT

  200. How fun! If I win, I’ll get several new things for the kitchen, including a pressure cooker, some new cookbooks, and some last minute/late Christmas presents. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  201. We could use a new microwave and I’ve been watching Keva wood construction blocks for a while.
    I’ve completed #1, 2 & 4.

  202. I’d love to win the gift card! My wish list is long… I’d probably buy some healthy food and kitchen accessories.

  203. Those slippers sure look cozy! But the EMF gadget is intriguing too!
    Thanks for sharing!
    :)

  204. I really want to get 3 New Baofeng UV 5RA Ham Two Way Radio 136-174/400-48?0 MHz Dual-Band DTMF CTCSS DCS FM 5W Amateur Radio UV-5R Transceiver – 2013 Latest Version with Enhanced Features !!! I want to be able to stay in touch with my husband and son no matter what happens.

  205. Glenda Taylor says:

    Great opportunity for us to win–thank you!
    If I win I would purchase a gas grill, …no, I think I would purchase a video security system…or maybe I would purchase a really good food hydrator. Hmmm, so many things I think I need!

  206. I would choose this: http://www.amazon.com/Apple-iPad-MD531LL-Wi-Fi-White/dp/B00746W9F2/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1386869474&sr=8-5&keywords=i+pad. I-pad mini. We only have the laptop and we all seem to want to use it at the same time! This way, I’d have my own. Thanks for the chance! Blessings from Bama!

  207. I’d buy baby things for our little one arriving in June (our first!). :)

  208. I have a berkley water filter that’s been sitting in my wish list for a while. I would be picking that up along with a new filtering shower head.

  209. still working on winning myself a vitamix. or a blendtec. haven’t decided! thanks for the chance!

  210. Margaret Ford says:

    I would like purchase a Berkey filter with extra filters. I would also like to purchase a food composter container for the kitchen. An air purifier would be great. And, if there is enough left, I would enjoy buying a book and a game for each of the grandchildren.

  211. I don’t know where I’d start. I’ve never won anything worth that much money!! I might finally be able to buy that Vitamix I’ve been wishing I could afford.

  212. I would probably go with an iPhone and an iPad mini

  213. anastasia b says:

    I would use it to buy a high speed blender!

  214. a kindle fire & co.

  215. Wow. With a $500 Amazon card I could start buying some of the items I have on my wishlist there. Have been compiling a list of healthy food and appliances needed to start on a better healthier diet and way of life.

  216. I would absolutely buy a Berkey water filter because they are sadly going to start FRACKING near me soon and I would have peace of mind with a Berkey. As a total splurge I would sure like a pair of those SOREL slippers too.

  217. Ellen Renee says:

    I love Amazon and always have something on my list. Books of course, some wireless speakers for my son, I was going to reorder some Nu-naturals liquid stevia but it has terrible reviews now and that is how I landed at your site! Although after looking at your homemade sweetener I noticed you used the same brand as your base. Have you changed what you use now?

  218. I will buy a berkey water filter because soon there will be fracking close to my area. I would also love a pair of those sorel slippers, they look so warm. I would buy new waterers for my chickens also and order spring layer chicks and meat birds. Just found your site today, very informative.

  219. Thanks for all the great info, WNM! Your posts have been so helpful!

  220. I would buy slippers (I’m a member of the cold feet club, too), a foam roller to help with stretches & muscle recovery, some fun stuff for my boys, and some fun stuff for hubby. Ooh, and some DVDs we’ve been wanting.

  221. What a fantastic giveaway! If I won I’d probably get a dehydrator for myself and a whole bunch of gluten-free mixes for my dad.

  222. I’d buy a bunch of accessories to go with my BOSCH and NUTRIMILL to get my new business up and running!! :) THAT WOULD BE THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS present!! :) My AMAZON wish list is full! :)

  223. Rebecca Jacobson says:

    I would use it to stock up on our supplement supply! It sounds boring, but it would be a huge help!

  224. I would buy some healthy food and beauty products.

  225. I would like to buy a new laptop if I won the gift card. I currently have a Dell and it is literally falling apart and being held together by tape

    http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-Satellite-C55D-A5344-15-6-Inch-Laptop/dp/B00F9VPJ2O/ref=sr_1_6?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1386981944&sr=1-6&keywords=laptop

  226. Courtney of The Shire says:

    This super sexy gift for me and the Mr. –http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005PR28AS/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=36DHJSNI9D95P&coliid=I3A88D82EZ6UK4

    TWO of these, to cover the tiny square footage of our farmstead dwelling –http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001892AX2/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=36DHJSNI9D95P&coliid=INSX45W8SSPJD

  227. Id stock my pantry and buy containers to organize and buy in bulk.

  228. I like amazon… a lot

  229. Paula Powell says:

    I would buy my children’s Christmas presents with this!

  230. Elizabeth B says:

    I would try to get some video games for the kiddos.

  231. The next thing on my wish list is an Excaliber :) So that’s what I would start with. Then I would have to do some looking….

  232. I would start with this kindle for my daughter who loves to read! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C5W16B8/ref=gw_c1_xm_tho_2?ie=UTF8&nav_sdd=aps&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-1&pf_rd_r=09ZPJ229KYGXMR51BQ94&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688216542&pf_rd_i=507846

    From there, I would get myself some nice fuzzy slippers and who knows what else. :)

  233. I would continue to feed my passion for historical mysteries but most importantly I would continue to buy books for my two daughters who love to read!

  234. or…I would buy a new pair of Old Gringo boots http://www.amazon.com/Old-Gringo-Womens-L649-4-Vesuvio/dp/B00BPEMW7O/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1387046694&sr=8-5&keywords=old+gringo+boots+women+bonnie

    I need a size 11 women’s—I’ve been eyeing this pari for 3 years– but I need to find the 11

  235. I would buy a Excalibur Dehydrator.

  236. I’d buy some lip balm supplies and some groceries, that way I could put our grocery budget toward the CSA we want to do this year.

  237. Stephanie Boudreau says:

    I would use the gift certificate towards canning goods like a canner, mason jars etc… a new set of non toxic cookware possibly. I would be nice.

  238. Nancy Cole` says:

    who couldn’t use this card? I had to purchase this pc on Amazon, have had it two days, was with out a computer for two weeks, what a bad trip. Now have to pay this off in 2 months! Ya think this card would be a help? for sure!

  239. I need to stock up on essential oils.

  240. Miracle Quelle says:

    first I would get a guitar for my husband for Christmas. if there was any left it would go toward a vitamix while I’m dreaming :-)

  241. I have a whole wish list at amazon, but I’d probably buy a bunch of biomechanics / anatomy textbooks and maybe a vitamix.

  242. Ooh, what a fun giveaway! Amazon has everything. First I’d order some rollerblades for my husband because I bought them for the rest of the family for Christmas but that wouldn’t be my husband’s first choice for his gift – and I already spent a bunch of money on what he DOES want. =) I’d probably think about getting a tablet or a better phone for myself… or maybe I’d get some cook books or videos about science or history!

  243. If I were to win, I know the first thing I’d buy: a food processor. I’m planning to get one soon as it is, but winning the money to do so would be quite a gift. Aside from that, I’d probably start buying the new run of Doctor Who on DVD, perhaps along with Torchwood and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

  244. Jamie Spires says:

    I would buy books, oh lots of books. And kitchen gadgets. And some plants for my yard. And maybe a tool-toy for my hubby!

  245. I just saw a continuous kumbacha brewer on another site but it was around $250 dollars for the cheapest version, I’d start there and buy more supplies or maybe go with the milling tool I saw on one site, would be fun to make your own bread from scratch. Funny what I’ve come to think of as from scratch.

  246. I would buy a Kindle Fire.

  247. Heather Nowak says:

    I think that I would buy a grain mill and some bakeware. :-)

  248. Would really like to win so I could use it for Christmas presents

  249. I would get an emf meter-love it. I would also get movies and music for my parents.
    Thank you!

  250. Helen Brown says:

    I would buy a tablet, probably the kindle fire (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_2_9?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=foodsaver%20vacuum%20sealer&sprefix=foodsaver%2Caps%2C329) and a food saver, which I have been wanting for over a year.

  251. This is a very nice contest. I would probably use the gift card to buy my family gifts for Christmas and some useful items like food.

  252. Jacqueline McNamar-Hisle says:

    I would definitely get a Big Berkey water filtration system with the extra cartridges to remove fluoride. I have a 3 year old & we have city water….yuck!

  253. Thank you for the opportunity to win! I would purchase an excaliber dehydrator. I am high raw vegan and I would love to have one. Happy Holiday to you and your family!

  254. Cathy North says:

    I would order a vitamix!

  255. Nancy cole says:

    A great idea right now, this would pay off this computer, I was without a PC for 2 weeks! Who ever wins will be truly blessed. :-)

  256. If I won I would buy some accessories for my new kindle fire I’m getting for christmas!

  257. I buy Christmas gifts for my 5 children, among them would be a Kndle Fire for my oldest son and Littlest Pet Shop for my youngest. It would be a huge blessing to win! I’m not sure if Christmas gifts will be an option this year without something like this. Thanks for the giveaway!

  258. My husband was laid off last week so this giftcard would be used for all the basics we could buy from amazon. Thanks for the chance to win!

  259. Wow, this is such a big amount! Things are tight due to my health with my thyroid, so we would use this for Christmas and for other needs, like a blendtec twister jar. We use our Blendtec all the time to make homemade gluten free flours and nut butters.

  260. I would buy gluten free sugar free food! It would sure give my grocery bill a break for a long time, because I could actually buy bulk, save money, bake my own things and not have to buy expensive prepackaged items in smaller amounts because I couldn’t afford bulk!!! It would be so awesome! I have to get gluten free sugar free (and try really hard to do organic too) It could set up a whole new way of living for us.

  264. Kimberly Rudd says:

    I have to say that Amazon would be fond of me if I won the gift card. I would buy new running shoes, New Balance 1260v3 ($145), a Nike+ SportWatch GPS powered by TomTom ($145) and as many books about health, cooking, and running that I could.

    I love your blog! So many great ideas and things to think about and try. Thank you for doing this!

  265. My Amazon wish list is like 8 pages long. (It’s something of a “working document.” Family buys off of it for holidays, but I buy things from it, too.) I have some healthy living books on there, Willow Trees, photography books & supplies, craft books…

    But if I had $500 Amazon money all at once – yeah; I’d probably get a Kindle. It would make those bundle ebooks easier to read!

  266. Oops. I forgot to leave a link. This is the first item on my wish list, at the moment. (I’ve checked it out from the library, and it’s pretty good.) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003VQS6ZQ/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3MGVWG0CK9F0V&coliid=I3SWEXNDJWGGCJ

  269. I would buy some paleo immune disease cookbooks :) to help my body heal.
    My son REALLY needs a new violin, he can’t get his fingers in position on the one we have because it is sooo tiny!

  270. I would buy a pressure canner.

God is providing every day on our crazy journey. :)
