back-to-school giveaway

**This giveaway is now closed.

My favorite part of each new school year is filling out my new calendar.  Even though I'm staying at home this year, I still feel like today is the start of a new year.  I'm starting this new year with an Erin Condren Life planner, and I've had so much fun filling up my cute calendar with important dates.
To celebrate the new school year, I will be giving away a $25 giftcard to Erin Condren.
Plus I'm going to throw in a 
$25 off redemeption code.  

If you win this giveaway, you too can start your year with one of these cute life planners.




If you want to buy a life planner you will essentially get it for FREE.  You'll just have to pay shipping.  If you don't want a life planner you'll just have $50 to spend on whatever your little heart desires.  They have address labels, gift labels, lesson plan notebooks, note pads, and more!!  

Here's how you can enter to win......
{You have 5 chances to win. So make sure you leave 5 separate comments!} 

1.  Follow my blog, and leave me comment telling me that you do! 
**If you are a new follower, I would love to know how you found my blog.
{You have to be an "official follower" through Google Friend Connect.  All you have to do is click Follow on the left hand side of my blog and log in! You will not be eligible to win if I don't see you as one of my followers.}

2.  Leave a comment telling me what you would spend the $50 on!

3.  Blog about it and leave the link to your blog post in your comment!
**You must link to my blog in your post!

4.  Facebook about it and leave the link to your facebook page in your comment!
**You must link to my blog in your post!

5. Tweet about it and leave the link to your twitter page in your comment!
**You must link to my blog AND include @katylink in your tweet.

I'll be announcing the winner of the giveaway on
Monday, August 29th!!

Good luck!!

I have been looking for another code to use to get a planner. I thought about getting one when you listed it the first time and I regret not ordering one!! I would either get the planner with stripes or the picture below it in your blog! With my job and family a super cute planner would come in handy!!

Lindsay said...

Yay!! Great giveaway...I'm following!

Since I already ordered a Life Planner I want either the address book or stationary.

I would definitely spend the $50 on the life planner. I was so disappointed when I saw the last deal was over by the time I looked. I have my design picked out but can't see spending $50 on it so I am hoping for another deal to come soon. I was so excited to see your great giveaway!
