We put our home on the market back in early September with the intentions to gain more space for our growing family. We had a buyer in November, and had the home inspection shortly after. After negotiating, we need to come up with 12k in repair costs. We have been able to do this, but has put a real damper on the holiday season. If I was to win, I would use this to help pay down debt& use towards paying off repair costs& moving costs.

If I win the Hedgeable’s Wise Bread giveaway I would like to buy a refrigerator. Mine is in pretty rough shape. Thanks.

If I won the $1000 grand prize, or any prize. I would save it and use it towards my 2 year old daughter's major chest surgery coming up in January. My fiance will have to take a week or 2 off work so we will be very short on money in January. Any money we have now we will have to save, and use to buy food every day at the hospital which can be so pricey sometimes for the both of us! So anything would definitely help! Especially when we have so many other things to worry about. Money is the last thing we want on our minds! Thank you! :)

We're expecting our first in short order here, and while we're doing a decent job of keeping costs down, we'll be looking down the barrel of quite a lot of new costs (diapering! whatever else babies need!) and this would really come in handy defraying that since we're also taking care of a new dog that has a tough medical condition.

Tough one. Since it is an Amazon gift card. I would buy items that would help us save. Things I've always wanted but have had to wait on like a food saver, yogurt maker, and because I've always been wanting to do stamping, I'd look into stamping kits. I'd also renew our Amazon Prime which expires in the end of January.
