Mother’s Day Giveaway: Five Readers win a Mani-Pedi

A couple of weeks ago I asked Fans of CSwM on Facebook what they wanted for Mother’s Day.  The majority of you said that you would love a Mani-Pedi.  It is time for sandals and it would come in handy to get one.

While I can’t help each one of my readers get a mani-pedi.  I can help some of you.  As a sign of appreciation for your readership and to celebrate this day, five Common Sense with Money readers will win $60 in cash to pay for your mani-pedi or any other way you would like to treat yourself.

To enter this giveaway:

  • Just leave me a comment telling me:  if you win, will you would be getting a mani-pedi? or which other way will you be spending this prize on yourself?

  • I’d definitely get a mani-pedi! I’m tired of wearing closed toe shoes and ready for some sandals (and warm weather)!

    • Jen

      I would love to win a mani pedi! My job recently ended as did my father’s & it seems like any extra money I’ve tried to save away is all going to help out with family bills & housing expenses. I look forward to reading your newsletters every afternoon to find savings that may help out; if possible to receive newsletter earlier im the day, would love it even more. Thanks for the chance at a giveaway & your tips 🙂

    • Joleen

      A mani-pedi would be wonderful! With a 1 year old, I don’t get out much to pamper myself and I try to save money as much as I can for our little family so I don’t spend much on myself. Thanks for the newsletters on saving money and the chance to enter the giveaway.

  • I would definitely do a manicure/pedicure–this last year has been rough as we experienced a stillbirth, miscarriage, me going back to work full-time and my husband becoming unemployed–

  • Cassie

    I would get a mani/pedi!

  • laura _in_TX

    ABsolutely – manicure and pedicure for sure! In dire need.

  • Ashley

    I would definitely get a mani-pedi!

  • Heather G

    I would love a pedi!!!

  • Dominique

    What a great giveaway! Thank you, Mercedes for all you do. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!

    • Dominique

      And I would use the money to get my mom the mani / pedi.

  • I would love a mani-pedi. I love to wear sandals and like my feet to look nice!!

  • What a sweet giveaway!

    I would get both a pedi and mani with that amount! Infact, I would have enough left over to get a Pampered Chef bread loaf stone I’ve been wanting too!

  • Katherine

    I’ve always seen mani-pedis as pretty but impractical. I would use the money to go buy myself some new bras and undies – I just had my second child 6 weeks ago, and nothing fits right, plus everything I have is old, so it would be a treat to get some good quality things.

  • Nici Davenport

    I would definitely go treat myself! I am not a mom yet, and have battled infertility for three years now. I think I deserve it!:) Its been a rough day emotionally for me. They need a national infertility day to celebrate how strong people like me are. I am a mom to a furry baby Bailey…

  • Charina Carter

    I would definitely get a mani-pedi ! My nails are hungry of pampering 🙂

  • Kelli Brookshire

    Hi!!… Well, I am a single mommy of a beautiful 5 year old little boy! He is my life and makes being a mommy the most rewarding thing EVER!!!… I work a fulltime job and I am a fulltime student… A mani-pedi would be WONDERFUL… Thank you for everything you do to help this mommy save some money!!!

  • Cindy

    I work in construction. I am a painter, not a scary looking one ! My hands take a serious beating with all the painting and staining and caulking that I do. I somehow manage to keep my nails long, but never have the extra funds to get my nails and feet taken care of. Nothing would make me happier than to feel like a lady for a brief while before going back into the man’s world of construction. I would definitely do the mani/pedi without a doubt!

  • karyn

    I desperately need a mani-pedi. I will soon be leaving to go see my 91 year old grandmother who has 40+ heads of cattle that she still tends to. Lives by herself, cleans her own home does her own bank account, mows her own grass. she is just amazing.

  • Sherry Jones

    I would definitely get a mani-pedi!!! I was just telling my hubby that I needed a pedicure so bad!

  • Chantalle

    I would definitely get a pedi … mani’s don’t last long enough with little ones, but with $60, I could get about 3 pedis …. enough for almost all summer!

  • Gwen Walton

    I would love to get a mani and Pedi. I so need one after spending almost everyday at the ballfield with my boys it would be a great gift to give myself.

  • Carissa

    definitely a mani-pedi…just some time to sit down and relax, so that when i do get back up, i’m looking and feeling good!!

  • Donna Y

    I’d get a pedicure and spend the rest on one of the things I’ve been wanting but can’t fit into the budget (10lb. dumbbells, new resistance bands, or a fabric cutting mat/rotary cutter).

  • Beth

    All mothers should be treated so well with freshly decorated toes!! Congrats to the winners whoever they may be!! Happy Mother’s Day to all and God bless you in the role of motherhood!!

  • Kristen

    I would probably buy some new clothes for spring! Happy mother’s day!

  • Holly Ham

    I would most certainly get a mani-pedi! I ran a 1/2 marathon in Sept. of last year to raise money for World Vision to bring clean water to kids in Africa. I lost a few toenails in that race and they are just NOW starting to grow back! I am dying to make my feet pretty again! 🙂

  • Morgan

    While there’s no doubt I’d love to get my nails done, I really could use a haircut more! So I’d go get a great cut if I won the giveaway and then grab a couple of bottles of polish with my Rimmel coupons and do my own mani-pedi :).

  • Star Legere

    I would use to get myself something for mother day my husband just lost his job so we could not do anything for mother day

  • Kristin

    oh I would love a mani-pedi! I’ve had a heck of a year, my 2nd born was born 6.5 weeks early spent several weeks in NICU, my oldest daughter has be in and out of the hospital and last week I was told I might have uterine cancer so I have to go in for testing and a possible hysterectomy in the coming weeks. I could really use some me time 😉 Hope I’m a winner!

    • Cindy A.

      Oh wow, this is a glorious giveaway! I would definitely get the mani-pedi. Thank you so much for offering such a generous gift. 🙂

  • Tracey Musgrave

    I would spend the money on a mani-pedi fun day for myself. I am going through a divorce right now and it seems like I have lost all my “free” time since I am a single parent now. I would love to have a few hours to myself.

  • I would totally get a mani/pedi. As a working mom, I rarely take time for myself (which reminds me, I need a haircut, too!) but would love to do something for myself.

    I would get a pedi because I’ve never had one. Then I would use the rest of the money to get my hair trimmed and some new makeup. Thanks for the contest!

  • Lisette

    If I decide not to do the mani pedi I would definitely do a massage! I have never had one and after what I been though this year I soo need one.Thank you so much Mercedes hope you are having the greatest mother’s day!

  • Chatan Patel

    Though I’d love to get my feet done, but I’d send my wife and daughter each out for a Spa Pedicure. My wife handles all our daughter’s needs, keeps me from going coupon-crazy, and work’s more than full-time. She trully deserves it.

  • Brandi

    If I win, I’ll be using this for BOTH for myself…. 🙂 thanks mercedes!

  • Stephanie

    I would absolutely get a mani/pedi! I have never had a pedi before but gals at work tell me how wonderful they are,

    • nicole vasher

      awesome auto correct fail….lol I love when that happens!

  • Melissa

    If I won I would definatly use it on a Mani-Pedi! I’ve never had one and I would like to pamper myself – I would also bring my mom along for a treat! She’s having some major stress in her life right now and I think it would be nice to get her out of the house for something special!

  • KathyB

    Happy Mothers Day!

  • barbara

    I would defiitely treat myself to get a mani-pedi if I won. I was in a bad accident a few years ago and since then have been unable to reach my toenails even to cut them. I am so limited in what I can do since then, and I am in so much pain. Please consider me as a winner. You will make my day, and there are not many good days for me since most of the time I am in severe pain.
    Thank you for your consideration.

    I would definitely get a mani/pedi. I haven’t gotten one since my wedding 3 years ago, mostly since I cannot justify spending that much money on something that I don’t really need, but if I won then I wouldn’t have to worry about taking extra money from our budget (which is continually getting smaller having an almost 4 month old)! Thanks for the giveaway, and Happy Mother’s Day!

Thanks, Mercedes, for such a fun giveaway opportunity! 🙂

  • Sarah

    I would love to win this prize. I am 7 mths pregnant and can barely see my feet. I know I need a lil pampering with them.

Well I know how excited she is for this to be her first mother day but she and her family of three are on a very strict budget until she can go back to work.

  • Jan

    If you saw my fingernails and toe nails, you’d say, “Get her to a mani-pedi ASAP.” That’s what I would use the money for.

    I have never had a mani-ped, and it would be a real treat! But I love the idea someone had for bras and panties!! Mine are looking pretty scary, and for some reason that always feels like a selfish purchase (even tho’ I wear them every day!!)!! Pretty bras and panties, guilt free, yay!!! 🙂

    Thank you!!

    • Jane

  • Durinda Wilkinson

    YES!! I would love to get them. Thanks for all you do for us. Happy Mother’s Day!

  • I might get a pedicure, but polish refuses to stay on my fingernails for more than 5 minutes! Seriously, I went straight from getting a manicure to the church on my wedding day (I didn’t even drive) and by the time I got to the church (a 5 minute drive) I had chipped three nails!

  • Kristi

    I would definitelty get a pedicure, but I’m a nail biter 🙁 so instead, I’d get myself a much needed haircut!

  • I think I would get a pedicure, as I’ve never had one before! That should leave about $20 that I could treat myself to ice cream (with a Q) for the next 10 weeks. Very sweet!

  • oliva

    I would use some coupons to get a discount on the the mani-pedi and the rest to pay a sitter for 2 hrs so I can enjoy a dinner with hubby all nice and fancy 😉

  • Wendi P

    I would love a mani-pedi and I hope that you take time to get yourself one too! Thanks so much for the chance to win a bit of pampering!

  • Christy

    I would combine this gift with a Christmas gift card I have to the spa! The gift card isn’t enough for any service but combined I’d either get the mani-pedi or a massage/facial. I don’t deserve it more than anyone else but I appreciate the chance! I’m struggling with infertility, we are blessed with a 3 year old little boy, but long for him to be a big brother. We’ve done a ton of treatments with no success now for over 2 years. I’d love some relaxation time as we search for ways to continue to have hope and faith on this journey.

  • Cassie

    Absolutely I would get a mani-pedi!!! Been such a long time!!!

  • Anne Kearney

    I would get a mani/pedi…It has been years since I had one.

  • Erika

    I’m not sure what I’d use it for, but I’d so use to spend on something for me. Maybe some new spice blends to “mix things up a bit” when it comes to cooking and then get a at home hot waxing kit. Sounds lovely :).

  • Joy

    Mani and pedi for sure! It is my most favorite thing to do to treat myself!

  • Nancy

    I am soooo overdue for a pedi/mani!!! This would be an awesome gift!!!!

  • Diana B

    I would be so grateful for a mani/pedi! With a one-year old and a two-year old, I don’t get out by myself much. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

    my internet went out so i don’t think my first comment went thru .. thank you for all you do!! this giveaway is awesome!! my wedding is coming up in july & i would definitely use it for a mani/pedi .. one less expense to worry about! Happy Mothers Day!

  • Erica Pope

    I would get a massage. One of our local massage places is offering a special for 1st time customers for 49.99 — Add in the 20% tip of $10 & it’s PERFECT $60.
    I suffer from bad back problems — both scoliosis & spondyliosis (pars defect with a double fracture). I am in pain management but the pain is not being well maintained, so it is difficult to function on a daily basis. I push through because I have 2 kids under age 3 & a husband. I recently started staying at home with my kids because I was on the verge of losing my job due to my attendance issues result from my medical problems. Our (2) income family went to (1) overnight. Needless to say, we don’t have the money for me to go & get a massage.
    Living in constant pain is extremely hard, not just physically but mentally. I would love the opportunity to get away for an hour & relax & ultimately get a little relief, even if it’s only for a couple hours!
    Thanks for everything you do — your site has helped me save much needed money!
    Happy Mothers Day ;))

  • Marlene Goldschmidt

    I would get more ink for my printer so I can print more coupons!

    Happy Mother’s Day to you too, Mercedes! And thanks for all you do! I was fortunate enough to receive my Grandmother’s diamond ring (from the late 1920’s), and would love to have it modified so I can wear it. What a great memory to have! Thanks! Sue

  • Joanne

    Thanks for this giveaway. I think I would use it to get my hair done—I’ve been wanting to update my ‘do for sometime now.

  • Catherine

    I think a mani-pedi sounds divine – a wonderful way to relax and spend a little time just on me!

  • Christina

    I would like to enter your mothers day give a away I would use the money for a manicure since my hands are so dry from this past harsh winter we had. And I would put some of it away to take my mom to dinner when she gets here on vacation so we can spend some quailty time together
    Thank You

  • Tara Lieb

    I would use the money to take my mom and myself to get a massage. Thanks

  • Kathy

    That would be a perfect gift for the upcoming sandal season. It has been so cold here in Wisconsin it might cause the sun to finally break out!! Enjoy your day.

  • Evie

    Absolutely!! I would love a mani-pedi. I haven’t had a manicure in years. I usually get a pedicure 4 times a year if possible.

    Thanks. Happy Mother’s Day!!

  • judy

    I would love that. Thank you for coming up with that prize.

  • Andrea

    I would use it on a massage 😀

  • lynn cook

    oh girl , with sandal season here a mani pedi especially the pedi is definitley called for

  • deb

    Oh yes I would get a mani-pedi! My feet need some TLC after my recent pregnancy. I’m just happy they actually fit in shoes now, no more slippers! Flip flops, here I come!

  • Carmen

    With my current job, a manicure would not last more than 3 days, so I would probably get a pedicure (there’s nothing like someone rubbing your feet!) and use the remainder to get my hair styled for my upcoming graduation! 🙂


    I would be very happy to win this giveaway in order for me to be able to help my husband pay our bills. I lost my job two months ago (this after my husband losing his job a month and a half earlier) and even though I am receiving unemployment compensation, it is not enough (My husband took a job in which he gets paid less than before, but helps). We are behind in our payments, and to tell you the truth, this help will help me not feel as anxious and will help me feel relax way beyond a medi/pedi.

    Happy mother’s day! I enjoy your newsletter now that I have to find ways to stretch our income!


  • Samantha

    I would definitely get a Mani/pedi! They aren’t cheap in NY, this would be amaZing! I haven’t gotten a Mani/pedi in a year(sad I know) but now that summers here I’m in dyer need!

  • Tonya Smith

    Yes ma’am! I would def get a mani pedi!!!!

  • Kelly MacNeil

    I have not pampered myself at all since my twin girls were born almost 3 years ago. It has been a long road with them having health issues and my mom passing away when they were 10 months old. I have been doing it all alone and I am exhusted. If I won I would treat myslf to a pedi since my feet hurt and I would treat my girls to their 1st manicure. They deserve it so much! Thanks for all you do and happy mothers day to you.

  • Nancy

    I would love, love, love to get a mani/pedi! What a great way to get ready for Summer!

  • Betty N

    I usually do my own manis and pedis because of the cost factor, but heck ya I would use this in a spa setting! 🙂

  • Amy Frank

    I would treat myself to a mani pedi! I don’t get one very ofter and IT SHOWS!!!!! My son always says , “Mom, what is that what rough stuff on your heels”? I think I may be way over due! I live in Florida and I wear flip flops or sandals daily. I need to have pretty feet.

  • Katie R

    ooo la la! I’d treat all my mommy friends to a mani pedi girls night in! I’d spend the money on delicious treats, vino, and a few fun new OPI colors so we could primp ourselves together. That way, the gift can reach so many others, too!

  • Julie Kanning

    I would invest in a shellac mani (the polish Uu stays on for at least two weeks-even on busy moms!) and with a coupon I have, I could get a pedi and still have some leftover for a Starbucks! Sounds like a perfect mom’s morning out!

  • I will definitely be getting a mani/pedi. I’m nine months pregnant and can no longer reach my poor, neglected feet!

  • Melissa

    It would be a toss up between the mani-pedi and a massage. I love to get pampered but rarely do!

  • Jacqueline

    mani-pedi all the way!

  • Teresa B.

    A Mani/Pedi is always a treat. However, for me being pregnant, I would spend the money on a prenatal massage. My preggo friend had one and she said they are amazing! Takes all the pregnancy aches and pains away and a relaxed happy mom makes a relaxed happy baby! LOL

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway treat! Happy Mother’s Day Everyone!

  • deb cole

    i’d definitely use the $60 toward a well-needed massage!

  • Hillary

    I would love to relax with a mani/pedi for myself! That would be the perfect way to begin this summer!!

May is a crazy month with end of school activities, picking up a daughter that is 4 hours away at her 1st year of collage, a 1st grader and a soon to be senior in high school, add a 2 week visit from my Mother-in-law, 4 birthdays and Mother’s day and I’m frazzled! Thanks for the give away!

  • Shannon H.

    I think I would definately do the mani/ pedi. I have NEVER had one before. I would love to have one and take my Mom with me. I think it would be very relaxing and enjoyable!! Thanks for offering this!!!

  • Sheri Hawn

    This would be the icing on my Mother’s Day cake! I would use that money for my Mother’s Day spa day for my mom and myself. I bought it on Groupon. I got two spa day packages with facials and mani-pedis for $70!! Can you believe it?! That prize would almost pay for this special treat for my mom AND ME!! That would be awesome!

  • Elena

    I would love getting an mani-pedi. one for me and one for my mom!!!

  • Krysta


  • Theresa Walker

    I would totally get a mani/pedi. I love getting them with my friends, and actually haven’t had one since before Christmas…sounds like it’s time to get my little toes ready for summer!!!

  • Priscilla

    I am in desperate need of some help with the housework, there is only so much the children & I can do with our time (school work, & chores) we need help getting back on track. I’d use it pay someone to help & hope to reclaim space in my house.

  • I would love a mani-pedi! The last time I had my nails painted was when my 6 year-old did it! Not exactly professional, but fun. It would be great to be pampered. Thank you for the opportunity, Mercedes and Happy Mother’s Day!

  • hmmm…manipedi sound nice but I would get me some new clothes! They last much longer! 🙂

  • Katie

    I would definately get a mani/pedi. It would also, be an awesome Birthday gift, B-Day on 5/10

  • Anna

    I’m not much on manicures, but I could sure go for a pedicure— and here in Lawrenceburg, I think I could stretch that $60 to get a massage too! I’m a recent ( I worked before I had my twins)stay at home mom of 3 boys under the age of 4 and it is the hardest job I’ve EVER had!!

  • Angela Young

    Mani/pedi for this mom!

  • Jennifer T

    That is awesome of you to give something like this away. If I were to win, I would get the pedi & then go to a thrift shop to find some clothing for myself and/or children. 🙂

  • Brenda

    I sure could use one. My nails are in pretty bad shape. Happy Mother’s Day to all!

  • Sue

    Well, honestly I’d use the money for clothes. My hubby has been out of work due to illness for over a year now, and clothes are something I’m in short supply of….especially since my workplace changed the dress code recently. Now most of the clothes and shoes I have don’t comply with the new dress code. So, yeah….while the thought of a mani-pedi sounds like a slice of heaven, clothes are a must have for me. 🙂

  • Julissa Villa

    I would get a mani-pedi. I don’t usually splurge on something like this for myself, but if I won it, I would def take the time to get pampered!

  • Sadie

    Hi Mercedes! If I win, I would not get a mani/pedi. I would use the money to treat my mom and me to a facial. 🙂

  • Jessica V.

    I would use it to finally indulge in a Groupon for a mani/pedi or spa treatment. So needed!!

  • Cynthia

    I would skip the mani and go for the spa pedi (my feet could use the extra lovin’)!!!! Thanks so much for the opportunity.

  • Julie R.

    I will definitely be getting a mani-pedi! I already get my nails done regularly, but pedicures have become a luxury for me and I only get a couple a year due to cost. What a wonderful treat it would be if I won!!

  • conna smith

    I have never had a mani or pedi, I would like to have one.

  • tammie

    Absolutely!!! I’d get a mani-pedi w/ the $$$

  • Andrea

  • Kristin

    I would get a mani-pedi! I’ve never had either before.

  • April B.

    I would get a couple of pedicures. I’m a paralegal and deal with paper all day, so a manicure is usually wasted on me. This is my 2nd Mother’s day and it’s the best one so far. I got to spend all weekend with my family. 🙂

  • Pam

    I’ve never had a mani-pedi, so I’d love to try it! And after 8 months of Minnesota winter, it’ll certainly be nice to enjoy sandal weather again!

  • Kathy

    I would get a mani-pedi. I am trying to let my nails grow & I really need some help. My mom has lung cancer and I really need some relaxation time.

    Oh, I would definately get the mani/pedi! I’m due with twin girls in about 7 weeks, and that’s just what I need right now! 🙂

  • vendalou

    I would be getting a mani-pedi for sure. I have been a nail bitter all my life and I (at the young age of 62) finally have let them grow out. I just told a friend of mine today that they were almost ready to got get them done.

  • Marissa Long

    I would get a mani/pedi I am pregnant and am unable to even paint my nail if I wanted too.

  • sarah

    mani pedi would be great!

  • Sue

    I think I would love to try a new hairstyle for summer!

  • Tracy

    YES!!! Mani Pedi FOR SURE!

  • Jessica B.

    I would love the mani/pedi but I am in more dire need of a massage! When I was pregnant with my son I kept telling myself that I would treat myself to a massage after he was born. Didn’t do that, but told myself that I’d go do it once I was done nursing. That’s been seven months now and still haven’t gotten one. Just can’t seem to justify spending that money on myself!

  • Rei

    I would definitely get a manicure and maybe a hair cut…I haven’t had a chance to do anything like that it 2 years!

  • Jane T.

    I would love to get a pedicure with my husband…:)

  • Lisa

    hmm, I might get a mani-pedi…..I have never had one. Never thought to have someone else do my nails….
    no, I think I will send my mom to get one.

  • Staci Flippin

    My 13 year old daughter offered to spend $30 of her allowance money on Mother’s Day manicures for us both. I convinced her to buy me $10 earrings instead…just couldn’t let her spend all her money on me! If I won, I’d take her and we’d both get mani/pedis! That would be a first for us!

  • Cindy Young

    If I won the $60.00 I would give it to my Mother to recieve a Mani Pedi. She is 80 years of age and unable to reach her feet. And it brings me pleasure to see her get Pedis because she loves them so much.

  • Lori

    Yes, I would get the mainure for sure….just did a pedi since I had a balck tie event to go to last week. Might spurge on a gel mani.

  • Renee J

    I would LOVE a mani/pedi! I might even splurge on the deluxe pedi!

  • Kathy Edwards

    A manicure or a facial would just be perfect. To be pampered for a little bit in just priceless!

  • Kelly Thomason

    I would get the deluxe pedicure!

  • TBone

    That would be enough for me to get mani/pedi & lunch so I would probably just take a Saturday afternoon of pampering as a nice way to start the summer after a particularly trying school year! Let me think, what color polish. . . :0)

  • Kathleen

    In a house of boys, I’d love some girl time for a mani-pedi 🙂

    Mani/Pedi for sure! It has been a really long time since I splurged on that….a really looong time!

  • Tanya Berkebile

    I would love one – I am so frugle (have to be – I try hard to continue to afford being a Stay-At-Home-Mom to my 1 year old) that I have never gotten one before. It is a luxury that someday I’d love to have!

  • Cathy

    A mani/pedi is the ultimate special treatment. With funds being tight, I don’t get to indulge often. So to win would be the best Mother’s Day gift…or Birthday gift!!! Thanks for all your sharing!

  • Sonya

    I would totally get a mani pedi!

  • Kitty Dulgar

    I would definitely get a mani/pedi–I have three weddings coming up and of course the summer and my nails (both toe and finger) need help!! Thanks for having this contest!

    Never had a mani-pedi before! Never ever and am 30 years old. Think it’s about time for one, loll Will always remember!!!!! xoxo

  • Dorothy

    I am 18 and I would love to use the money to take my mom out. I could use the money towards Maybe a restraunt dot come giftcard. So we could eat then we could get her haircut or mani and pedis. My family doesn’t have alot of money. So I’m not sure if my mom has ever had a real person (besides someone in our family) cut her hair. Or had a real mani pedi.

  • Marsha

    I would love to buy some new reading material. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your giveaway.

  • Brenda Hahn

    I would definitely get a massage. My stress level is off the charts. I have been a widow for 7 years this month and I have 3 daughters. My oldest is graduating from community college and going on to a university to finish her bachelors degree in education, my middle one is graduating from high school and going straight to college as a pre-law major. This leaves only my 10 year old at home and will be a major adjustment for both of us. And to top it all off I am going back to work for the first time in seven years. I say a good deep tissue massage is just what mom needs.

  • Latoshia

    A pedicure would be awesome!

  • Kelly Peissig

    I would do the pedi for sure! Although a massage sounds tempting!

    A mani-pedi! You bet! I had a total knee replacement last year and going in for a patella resurfacing on the same knee next month .I can’t reach my left foot yet to do it myself. I have been off work all but four months since March of last year which was a blessing in disguise this year. My sister started having seizures and the cause is still unknown. I have been flying to Texas to take care of her and her 5-yr old daughter, splitting the time with other relatives. A pedicure would be awesome to have. Thank you for the opportunity to win one. God Bless you.

  • boswell0617

    I would totally get a pedi! My feet need some serious tlc for the summer sandal season! My husband promised me one for mother’s day, but with money so strapped, I can’t see spending the money on it right now. What a luxury it would be.

    We miss you here in Wisconsin! It’s not been the same since you have been gone! Happy Mother’s Day! I would definately get the mani-pedi. I have only done it for special occasions: first time my marriage and second time 1 day before the birth of my daughter. I just have a very hard time splurging on myself and feeling okay about it when my husband and I work so hard to save money and use our money well. It would be a real blessing to be able to do something for me just once and not feel like I am tapping into my daughter’s college fund or the little extra that we could be throwing at our mortgage. Thank you for the opportunity and all the great finacial assistance you give me and all of us. You truly are a God send!

  • Jen

    I would love a mani/pedi. We are trying to pay off our 2nd mortgage so there is no room in the budget for one right now!

  • kate

    If I win I’ll treat my mum to the mani/pedi – she desrves it!

  • Laurie

    Thanks for this opportunity!

    I would likely use it towards a groupon massage or body treatment I could find for a deal on groupon or living social.

    And I would promise not to spend it on gas for the car, food for the cats, or school supplies for the kid!


  • Tammie R.

    I would definitely get a mani-pedi! This would be wonderful to win!

  • Kristine

    I would definately get a manicure and pedicure, or maybe a facial!

  • Nori

    If I win, I would be getting a mani-pedi for sure.

  • Brenda

    If I win, I would get a mani/pedi. Thanks for doing this Mother’s Day giveaway!!

  • I would, without a doubt, get a mani pedi! I’m 3 months pregnant with twins and having the opportunity to sit in a comfortable chair and have someone massage my hands and feet would be HEAVEN right now!!

  • Lauren

    how lovely. I think I’d give this to my mom so she can get a mani-pedi…either her or my sister. it would make a great gift!

  • Avee

    id get a mani/pedi because ive never had like pretty girly feet, theyre clean but just not girly and i wonder what theyd look like all girly.

  • Paula Banks

    I would definitely love to win a mani-pedi, because every penny goes towards bills and keeping food on the table for my boys. So a mani pedi would be a nice treat for myself and very much needed!!! 🙂

  • Amy

    Would get a below wax and pedi. My nails I have up on long ago but would live beautiful toes and brows.

  • Danielle Highley

    Would love a manicure, but i don’t let anyone touch my feet!

  • Kim W

    I would LOVE a mani/pedi!! I’ve been wanting to treat my little girl to her first pedicure so this would be absolutely perfect!!

  • Kanwal Jabeen

    i would rather use the money and treat my family to some goodies and also buy my mom a rose bush kind plant the one that’s long necked and the roses grow on top from Low’s

  • Christine

    I would get a pedicure & treat myself to a 1/2 hour back massage too! 🙂

  • Teresa

    I would LOVE a mani-pedi. But I might get a facial. Who knows, all I know is that I would also have to take my best friend (who is also a mom) and treat her too. 🙂

  • Trisha Lynn

    I would love a pedicure!!!! Its supposed to be flip flop wearingf week and my feet are hideous!!! I need one sooo bad!!

  • Betsy

    I just saw the number of entries so this is probably not going to happen but I would love to win a mani/pedi. I need one so bad but rarely get one. There is always something else that comes up more important.

  • Desiree Joy

    Thanks for hosting such a nice give a way on Mothers Day.

  • Alicia Durbin

    Ok, if I won…What is that like?? I have 4 kids and work 2 jobs and that is not including being a mom and trying to save every way I can. I work 7 days a week and only get a day off if I use vacation time at one job (which I try to save to spend time with my kids) and ask for a day off at my other job (I am a PT server at a restaurant, so it is NP). Rare do I have time for a mani/pedi as it requires time off and no money. So, free one would be just the ticket. But, I will not state nor do I think I am the most deserving. I can only say winning would be GREAT!! I know there are numerous mothers that deserve one and may the winner enjoy her time off. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!!!

  • heather

    well i was just talking to another mom about this today , as she asked me why for the last 2 weeks i have been walking funny or trying to walk on my toes. i explained im in desperate need of a pedicure as with vt winters my feet get dry at heels and crack ! and being a couponing single mom of 3 boys its hard to squeek out the extra money for such luxury and with 2 being special needs the money is always better served on something for them as i always tend to put my own needs last .(as should be when your a loving mom)so i guess id toss out my bag balm and bandaids and relax and get some sore foot relief!! lol . i must say this mothers day has been a mixed blessing , as im so very blessed with 3 boys ages 18,15 and 2 (miracle baby). but sadly it is also my daughters bday today . who would have been 12 . and on may 30th my son would have been 9. as i had 2 stillborns.but then was blessed with my miracle baby 2 yr old . so i try to be thankful as after all the rain …. the sun does come out to shine and if your lucky you will see a rainbow.!!

  • Charissa glazner

    A mani-pedi would be lovely! I would definitely get both. With four little ones, I never have time to do my own.

  • Angela

    I really need a pedicure. I would also get the mani too. Great gift idea!

  • Sarah J

    I would love to get a brow arch and a pedi! What a WONDERFUL gift!!

    • Robin Gonzalez

      If I won the money, I would work on the other end-LOL! I am in dire need of a haircut and would really like to get a perm. I would probably even have enough left over for a lunch out too! All my money, and probably everyone else’s, has been going for gas ahd heating oil. Glad to hear it is supposed to drop about .50 a gallon! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  • Sarah

    I’d use it to shop the sales at Old Navy to buy myself some much-needed clothing! I’ve lost nearly 80 pounds in the past 18 months, and have only a few things that fit. I student-teach in the fall, and have absolutely no classroom-appropriate clothing.

  • Heather C

    You bet I’d get that mani/pedi! Currently being pregnant, there is nothing I’d love more than a pedicure 🙂

  • Ashley H

    I would get a massage instead.

  • Connie

    I would get the mani-pedi. My husband travels a lot and leaves me home with 2 young kids and a full-time job!

  • Meredith Shrader

    I would get a mani-pedi definitely! I have an 8 (almost 9) month old daugther that has had colic and reflux and have not had much chance to get out of the house and relax. This would be a great gift to get some much needed relaxation!

  • Cara

    I have never had a pedicure before. I’ve been wanting one so badly lately too.

  • Kori

    I would love a mani-pedi. So much stress in my life right now. This would be a special treat.

  • Megan

    I would treat my mom to a mani/pedi, as well as a massage! She deserves it, and it would really make her day. ;o)

  • Joan

    I would most definately get a mani-pedi!! They are a must in summer weather, especially in the South!!

  • Kim

    Yes! A mani-pedi.

  • stacy

    I’m unemployed, a Mani/pedi is one of the many things I have given up. I would love to have one!!

  • Kristi

    I would get a pedi. I really needed one. 🙂 Thanks

  • sun

    Hi Mercedes,

    I would love to get an aromatherapy facial. I used to think the best way to relax was with a massage. But, I found a facial to be much more relaxing, and very good for my skin.

  • Shari

    yes a mani pedi, such a treat!

    • Lisa

      I would definitely get a manicure and a pedicure for myself and I would treat my 6 year old daughter for her very first manicure!

  • Bernice Madsen

    I think I would have to go with the mani/pedi. It’s such a wonderful “mom” splurge to go out and get that done and what a wonderful way to get pampered!

  • Elizabeth

    I think I would get the mani/pedi even though it would be tempting to spend the money on something else. I have wanted to ge one for a long time, but I never want to spend the money or take the time.

  • Jayme L.

    Mani-pedi…I hardly ever get one!

  • Desiree

    I would love a Mani! Never had one before so this would be awesome!

  • Carol Woods

    Either one would be nice but if I won, I’d rather you give it to someone that has lost everything in our recent deadly tornadoes in Alabama. Just knowing one of them could have a few moments to be pampered would be a blessing. May God Bless You!

  • Janine

    I love your site and agree with most of the wonderful ladies – a mani-pedi would be heavenly!

  • Janel

    I would love to get a pedi. Come on summer and sandles.

    I would love a mani-pedi because I have never had one. Always wanted one but never got it.

  • Deborah M

    Love a pedi and probably would need an eyebrow waxing for the nice spring weather!

  • This is a tough decision! I would either go for the pani-pedi or I would get a massage. I have probably had 2 or 3 pedicures, but only one professional massage in my life and loved it! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  • Brittany O

    Mani-Pedi definitely. Just in time for summer and a great way to treat myself after a long school semester and a break from my 8 month old! Thanks!

    Happy Mother’s Day!

  • Carrie Duncan

    i would def get a mani pedi for myself.
    I am the sole breadwinner right now and would love the chance to do somethign for myself, just me.

    Thanks for the chance!!!

  • Thanks for this great chance to win! SO nice of you to do this for 5 lucky people! I would use the money towards a nice massage. I was lucky to get one for the first time a few weeks ago, and only was able to afford a 1/2 hour massage. I would definately go the full hour next time!
    Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

  • Lisa

    i would so do a mani/pedi- a day to myself

  • Deanna G.

    I’d love to get a mani-pedi! 🙂

  • Becky

    I would Love a mani/pedi. So nice to have a day to my self. thank you.

  • Crystal

    This Mother’s Day has been particularly difficult for me because I just experienced a miscarriage on Valentine’s Day. I have just finally returned to work, so after being off for nearly 3 months, money is very tight, and I would absolutely love to be able to treat myself to a relaxing spa mani-pedi.

  • Sara

    i would totally use this on myself. i love mani/pedis!

  • Eleanor Gallagher

    I would so love to relax and enjoy a mani/pedi ! Money has been so tights anything that is relaxing would be appreciated! Happy Mother’s Day everyone!

  • Sue D

    I have never had a mani-pedi and with all the gardening I do it wouldn’t last so I would rather treat myself to more plants.

  • Ui D

    I would get a pedi for me, and my daughter, who is a new mommy. I’ve never treated myself to one, so it would definitely be appreciated. Happy Mother’s Day to all! Thanks, Mercedes, for helping me to save a ton of money.

  • D D

    I would definately get a mani and pedi. Here in Florida wearing sandals a lot we can sure use pedicures. I love to get both

  • Megan

    I would definitely get a mani-pedi and take my mom with me since in New York a mani-pedi is about $30!

  • Jennifer M

    Oh yes, I would get a mani-pedi and I wouldn’t have to feel guilty about spending the money.

  • Carrie

    I would probably use it towards getting my hair done. I have not had my hair done (cut, colored, anything!) since my 13 year old was a 1-year-old! Now to only find the time as along with my 13 year old I have a 9 yo, 6yo AND 1yo, lol!

  • Elsa

    I would love to get a mani, pedi or even get my eyebrows waxed. 🙂 I honestly haven’t done much for myself since my breakup nor have I had the funds to. I have always been the type of mother who puts her kids first. From money for class projects to bibs to needing new shoes, I have always had to use what little extra money I have on everything but me. Break-ups are hard to do and even harder when your stuck with all the responsibility. I would love to do something just for me and feel a lil bit special.

  • Sharon Holloman

    A pedicure would be absolutely amazing! Manicures don’t last long on me, but I could get three pedicures out of the prize money making mother’s day memories last several months! Thanks for all you do for your readers!

  • Veronica Wheatley

    would definitely use it on a mani-pedi. I have been doing it myself but I have flared my back so it hurts everytime I do it. Plus, it’s been way too long since i had one done. thanks!

  • kara

    i would love, love , love a mani + pedi for me + my daughter!

    Wow!!! What a great prize. I would love to win it. I haven’t had that done in years…Just every time I did my nails I was picking up a baby…busy busy:-)

  • TrishInFL

    i would get a mani-pedi for sure! We have a three year old daughter, and custody of my husbands four nephews ages are 3, 6, 9, and 14. A mani-pedi would do me good right about now 🙂

  • Jenna

    Would totally get a Pedi- haven’t had one in over 3 years 🙁

  • colleen

    Mani pedi! Thanks!

  • Martha Aschenbrenner

    I would use it for a couple pedicures! A foot soak and massage is always delightful! Thanks!

  • kathy

    I would definitely get a manicure and pedicure. I am a mother of 3, and have a 6 month old baby so I am always busy!! Too busy to get this done and not worry about messing them up in a matter of days. I didn’t even go anywhere for mother’s day, just stayed home with my babies, due to financial issues. I would really enjoy this, and especially believe I deserve this! thanks.

  • Corrine F.

    Definitely get a mani pedi!
    Happy Mother’s Day!

  • Cheryl

    I will definitely get a mani-pedi with this. I haven’t had a manicure since I went to my prom when I was 17. I am 38 now.

  • Little Odd Me

    I work right next door to a nail salon. As a non-mommy-by-choice I’ve a great deal of admiration for my three coworkers who heroically juggle their full time work with full time parenting. I think I’d just use the money to buy them all some time for their toes. I did this at Christmas, and they loved it. It would be awesome to get to do it again. 😀

  • Kathy Clark

    A mani-pedi sounds delightful! Thanks and Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there!

  • Melanie Fuller

    I just recently got a pedicure so I would most likely spend this on a manicure and maybe even a nice facial if it would cover one…I had one a long time ago and it was wonderful! My face felt so nice and looked so much more radiant afterwards. Thanks!

  • Tara


  • Kristina

    Looks like I’m in good company! I’d definitely get a much needed Mani-pedi!

  • Carole Spring

    Yes, I would get a mani-pedi and it sounds wonderful! Thank you for the chance.

  • jill

    Oh my goodness! I would love for someone to rub on my feet for awhile! I always tell my boys that I would love to trade places with them when they are complaining about me rubbing their legs and feet with lotion after their bath!

  • Definitely a mani/pedi. They’re both SO needed.

  • JEN C

    I would totally get a pedicure. I love wearing flip-flops, but my feet are looking a little rough lately. Thanks for the chance

  • Jennifer

    As a mom of two little boys, I would love to do something girlie and would definitey get a mani/pedi.

  • Tambi

    A mani-ped – you bet I would use it for that! With 2 kids in college, I don’t have the pleasure of mani-peds anymore:(

  • Xiong

    I will most definitely get the manipad.. never got one before – it would be awesome! Thanks!

  • Arlene K

    Have never had a pedicure. Might use the money for that or possibly get a massage. Am a widow living on a fixed income so there is never any money for things like that. Thanks for the chance to win. Hope you have a great Mother’s Day.

  • Shannon V

    I think I will opt for a massage or facial instead.

  • Gail R

    I would love a pedi for Mother’s Day

  • Loraleigh Anderson

    While I’d be tempted to spend it on something more practical, my feet really need a pedicure. It’s been sandal season for weeks already where I live.

  • Lisa

    I work in the healthcare field and keep my fingernails short, so I would skip the mani.
    But I am 7 months preggers and still working 12 hr shifts, so a pedi would be heaven.
    I would use whats left to treat myself to lunch.

  • joan

    In the spirit of the mani-pedi, I would take my daughter and myself for pedi’s! What fun!

  • Julie

    Oooooh — a mani-pedi sounds wonderful! Would get me excited for spring and summer weather.

  • Cheri Howrey

    Definitely a mani-pedi! My reunion is this weekend!!!

  • Tristan

    I would get a mani/pedi!

  • Kristi

    I would do the mani-pedi. I used to have great nails but after I had my twins three years ago my nails peel and split. The kids are worth it though.

    I would be getting a mani/pedi.

  • Andrea

    I would go for a massage!! I’ve never had one and think it would wonderful!!

  • mitch j

    I would get a pedi; my feet are in desperate need of some TLC.

  • LaToya Wofford

    Yes! I would get a mani and a pedi! I am seriously in need of them both! I am a hard working stay at home marine wife with a 8 month old and a 3 yr old. Also my husband tore his ACL 2 weeks after i had my 8 month old, So it feels like i have not had a break in forever. So, again i would truly love and appreciate it!

  • Heather Daniels

    I would definitely use it to get a pedi. It is the one luxury I afford myself twice a year…I had major foot surgery a few years ago and the scars are horrendous. It is the only way I make sandal wearing tolerable and a great way to feel better…

  • Stephanie

    Mani/Pedi would be great!

  • Kristy Pearson-McLaughlin

    I would have to go with the pedicure because I don’t have a dishwasher and do WAY too many dishes to waste the money on a manicure 🙂 Aww, just to think about being in that chair and getting pampered…..shall I start begging now? LOL Thanks for the contest.

  • Bobbie

    I would just love a mani/pedi…thank you!

  • Katie B

    I would get pedicures with my darling daughters! I never get enough girl time with them.

  • Joy

    I am 42 years old and have never ever had a professional mani-pedi … not even for my wedding. I usually polish my own toes and don’t wear any polish on my fingers except special occasions. This would be a real treat for me.

  • Sunnie

    I would have it got towards to some new cowgirl boots.

    I would love getting a mani/pedi!!!! What a great way to start these summer weather months and a wonderful way to papmer myself for mother’s day and my upcoming birthday!!!

  • Marissa Seder

    I would be getting them and inviting a friend to share the win!

  • I need a mani/pedi so bad. Thanks

  • amy v

    would love this!

    I too have not had a haircut in over a year. I feel like if I won it would be a great reason for me to allow time for myself and enjoy a haircut 😉

  • Rachelle R

    a mani-pedi please!! thanks!

  • Jennifer

    I would love to get a pedicure! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • Debbie Burgo

    I would have to agree. For a luxury treat that would be hard to come by any other way, a Mani-Pedi would be a wonderful way to start the summer by getting them in shape so you can keep them that way. Thank you and Happy Mama’s Day Ladies!

  • sandy

    Wonderful treat – mani-pedi for me!

  • Michelle White

    The Mani/Pedi or towards a massage!

  • ashley


  • Wow, I would love a mani pedi! This is one thing that I can never justify having done because it costs so darn much, but if I receieved it as a gift I would certainly take advantage of it. Thanks for the giveaway and happy mothers day to you!

  • Donna Crowe

    I am wearing the same toe nail polish from my pedicure 3 mouthes ago! I sO need this for me!
    My Kuzin’ paid for the last one, and asked me two times to go with her again, but I can not afford to go! So I would ask her to join me!


  • Karla

    Ay definetly a mani/pedi!! You woulnt believe it but I have never had one done prof just at home!!
    I would love to feel pampered.Happy mothers day!!

  • Melissa W

    I would either do mani/pedi, get a massage, or go to Sephora. My husband sent me out for a pedi yesterday since it is my first mother’s day. A massage would be great from carrying around my precious 8 week old…and I’m almost out of lipstick!

  • sue killgore

    Yes I would definitely have a mani pedi for my daughter and myself. That would be great as we are both unable to do a pedicure for ourselves–she is disabled and I just can’t do it anymore. Thanks

  • Jackie R

    I definitely would be getting a mani pedi if I won. I work on my feet all day as a waitress and in fact I just got done working my shift on Mother’s Day a few hours ago. I would use this as a much needed relaxing afternoon and would probably take my daughter for her first mani.

  • Dana M

    umm… if I got the cash, I would probably get a massage, since I never felt justified spending something like that on myself. got manicure and pedicure for my wedding, and once for my bday as a gift from my girlfriends. I am still thinking if I would even do that. maybe I would be more practical and use the money to buy an outfit at dress barn… dreaming on here… 🙂

  • Oni

    I would get a mani pedi

  • Theresa E.

    I am not much on pedi. But sure would go get a new hair style and color. I am the mom of 3 and one in college.

  • Dorri Wassom

    would love a mani and pedi. Never had one! New changes in my life. We just adopted a 2 year old little boy and my other kiddos are in jr high. So now i am a new/old mom! I lost 140 lbs and just ran my first 5k! Doing things i never thought i would do! I am so blessed! Thank you Lord!

  • Laura K

    Yep – I would definitely get a mani-pedi. I’m due with my second child in early June and after not being able to reach my feet for awhile, they sure could use a little pampering!

  • Lisa N.

    I’ve had one manicure in my life (I’m 31) and get a pedi a couple times a year with friends when I can fit it in my budget…something like that is really a treat for me! But I’d also be temped to buy some clothes. I lost 20 lbs and (2 kids later) am back to my pre-baby size! With only $40 a month budgeted for “Appearance/Clothing”, it rarely goes to me!
    Thanks for a chance at this fun giveaway!

  • Jessica

    If i won i would give my mom the mani and take the pedi for myself since she doesnt like her feet messed with she would greatly enjoy the mani

  • Linda Kish

    Actually, I’d let my DIL use it for herself.

  • Theresa Keane

    I would love a mani/pedi..I have sandpaper feet and hands that crack…not so good for teaching young piano students. Not something I get to enjoy very often.

  • Victoria Nix

    While a mani/pedi would be awesome, I would get my son’s first baby picture framed. He’s almost 2 and I haven’t had the extra money to frame his picture. My daughter’s picture is framed and I have the perfect spot to hang them both.

  • Melissa Marquis

    I would LOVE a pedi.
    My daughter is 3 month’s old and I have definitely been neglecting myself a little.

  • Rachel

    Hi, I have been reading your newsletter for only about 2months and I have told many many people about it. I found it on the web after seeing the TLC show extreme couponing. Anyway, thanks for all the info, now I am able to use my coupons more efficiently. I have been doing nails professionally for 19 years…..I don’t do pedicures because of my back problems, but I do my own nails/toes of course because I would never pay for a job that I can do myself, however I would love to be on the other side of the manicure/ pedicure for once!
    thank you:)

  • jennifer w

    I recently became a SAHM, and in doing so had to find ways to cut down expenses and save money. Unfortunately with that came giving up some luxuries on my part. No longer did I get salon color, mine now comes from a box. We don’t eat out 3-4 times a week, I now clip coupons and peruse sites such as this for tips, hints, and sales & bargains. And I had to give up my bi-weekly manicure and pedicure. Somehow that little luxury made me feel like a million bucks! I haven’t felt like that in a while and would love to win this so I can have that feeling again…even if its only for a few weeks!

  • Lisa G

    I am trying to cut down on expenses as I recently purchased a home and my husband is disabled and hasn’t worked in 16 years. I work to support the family and am under a gread deal of stress.
    This would come in handy.

  • shannon o

    I would maybe get my hair done. I have never spent more than 20 on my hair ever. It might be fun to get a nice hair style.

  • Stephanie

    Definitely a pedicure! This is a luxury that I wouldn’t buy for myself, but I love having them done.

  • Brandy Hopkins

    Most definitely I would get a mani/pedi! A little pampering for myself for a change.

  • Jessica

    As a yoga teacher, my feet are always in need of a pedicure. As a mom, my hands are dry and rough from so much washing (dishes,diapers,potty training,arts and crafts,cleaning up smeared poop from the side of the crib…)So, a mani and pedi are definitely in order!!!!

  • Elvis Mejia

    If I win my wife will be getting a mani-pedi… Thanks for the wonderful site.

    • Regina Helson

      I hope you win. That’s so sweet!

  • Christina

    I think I might use it towards a massage!

  • Emily

    Mani-pedis are a big treat for me – something I only get to do maybe once a year, so this would be AWESOME! I’m currently expecting my second child and this would be a real treat – just the thought of getting my feet rubbed has me sighing! LOL

  • Lynn

    I would be getting a mani-pedi! My hands and feet need some pampering after the long winter! Thanks!

  • Stephanie Taylor

    I would LOVE to get a manicure or a pedicure… with my wedding coming up in a little over a month, that was one of the areas I was going to try to do myself, in order to save some money. I’ve never had either of these treatments before… what a great way to celebrate the big day!

  • Nancy

    If I win, I would love to get a pedi and pay for a pedi for my daughter to go with me.

  • Regina Helson

    I have NEVER had a pedi. I am about to turn 27 and have only had a mani once. That was when I was a teenager! This would just totally make my day. My husband would never pay for this!

  • chantel

    If I win, I would def. get a pedi. My feet look horrible after spending all winter in running shoes.

  • Meghan P.

    OMG!!! This is amazing!! First of all thank you for all that you do to help us save money. I have a 2 year old and I’m in school full time to finish my RN. I was working 2 jobs to try and keep up, but I had to quit both to be able to pass my classes, so needless to say money is tight and nothing extra for me. I would love a mani-pedi or even a MASSAGE!! That would be amazing… either way whoever wins congratulations and ENJOY!! You all deserve it! Thanks!!

  • I would def be getting a mani and pedi. I’ve never had a pedi before and my friends keep raving about a salon here that does them.

  • If I win I would do a pedi and a hair cut. As a gardening mother to 5 this time of year a mani is a waste of money. But a pedi and a hair cut sounds AMAZING!!

    I will probably splurge and get a spa pedicure 🙂 I have a spa that I only treat myself to on very special occasions!

  • Jen Fitzpatrick

    As much as I would love a mani/pedi, I think I would use it for a massage. I have fibromyalgia and one of the ways I can get my muscles to relax and cooperate more is a massage. Unfortunately, I don’t treat myself to them too often (maybe once every few years)

  • Kim

    I would definitely get a mani/pedi – I need one to start off the summer season!! Thanks for the opportunity 🙂

I rarely treat myself to either one (maybe once every few years or so) and this would be awesome!!

  • Amy N.

    I would love to use this towards and pedicure! It is a rare treat.

  • Cindy

    A mani/pedi would be nice. I am a stay-at -home Mom of four. My kids always come first. When your are on a tight budget, extras are not an option. I guess also when you grow up in a family on a limited income you you never miss the extras.

  • Elizabeth

    I would definitely get a mani/pedi! Having a mani/pedi makes a woman feel absolutely beautiful and it is one of the most relaxing things to do.

I think that it is very generous of you to give away prizes like these. You have helped so many of us with learning how to save money at the grocery and with getting free samples. I definitely check out your website several times a day! Thanks!

  • Stefani

    I would DEFINITELY get a pedicure! My dogs are barking big time!

    Not so much a manicure, though. There’s something about the filing that just kills my nerves. I would use the remaining amount (maybe $15) to buy myself new sandals to show off my pretty feet!

  • Kasey

    Two pedis – one for me, one for my BFF 🙂
