Celebrate fall with a $1000 shopping spree!

Autumn is upon us! And I'm not complaining. I never complain about autumn. It is the winter that drives me crazy.
On the one hand the first few days of autumn feel nice - it reminds me that the holiday season is almost here, and soon there'll be loads of Christmas shopping to do! It reminds of the pumpkin pies and cakes and bakes for Christmas! But once the festive season is gone, the months of grey until we start getting the first signs of spring are the hardest. That is when I complain!

For now, I am just waiting for the first of the chestnut stands - heisse marroni to come up at my favourite spots! Then there is some shopping for the winter to be done - need to buy a new coat, and some boots as well. Of late, my mailbox has been flooding with "10% off fall clothes" or 25% off blah blah if you spend more than blah, and so on. All that talk of the latest trends etc isn't helping me to not hit the stores!
And then I got a mail from one of my favourite stores - They have a lucky draw and one person can win a $1000 shopping spree!! Woohoo!
And don't worry, if you can't win that, one of you can always win a $25 gift card from yours truly. That wouldn't buy you much, but it does enter you for that $1000 contest.
