I would add about half to my savings fund and use the rest to pay for some of my blogging expenses - like site hosting, design and more. I would basically use it to invest in myself!

Answering the Wise Bread question: If I won $1000, I'd use it to buy Christmas presents for my family and I'd also use part of it to buy food and toys for a local pet rescue shelter.

Wow, what an amazing giveaway! If I won the $1,000 Amazon gift card I would buy a high quality food dehydrator I have been wanting for a long time. I'd also buy some food items that can be expensive, such as nuts and seeds. I would buy a few books and some emergency preparedness items. And then I would give the rest, probably about $400 to one of my favorite non-profits, such as The Cookbook Project or the Rape Recovery Center (in Utah), to use for needed supplies.

Hmmm . . . How would I use the $1000 grand prize in Hedgeable’s Wise Bread giveaway this holiday season if I won? I'd add it to my emergency fund - maybe with an extra $1000 it won't keep getting depleted and I'd actually have a little more security. Either that or I'd pay some bills. Probably both!

I could just say some lie like that im going to donate $1,000 to a pet shelter or some stupid sappy story to get on your good side or I could tell you the truth. If I won a one thousand dollar amazon gift card i would use it to buy my family, my grandparents, my uncle and aunt, ect. NutriBulletRx's because we don't really have the best eating habits and i really would like me and the rest of my family to live longer and healthier. We eat fast food on a regular basis and I saw the NutriBulletRx on tv and thought it would be a grand idea to share then with my family.

Ashley Jacobs's picture

Honesty is always the best policy! That does sound like a good way to use the prize money.

Honestly, we are working to banish debt we acquired when we had no income for about a year, so most of it would go towards that debt, with a piece of it going towards a celebration dinner. Because you should always celebrate your good fortune!
