Land Central Become a Landowner Sweepstakes! offers a new way to shop for land.  You can search for land all over the United States whether you’re looking for a single lot, land for development, in the city, or out in the country.  They offer a variety of land packages with one thing in common, keeping it low cost.

From October 1st until October 31, 2012 will be giving away a piece of land to one winner from their choice of 5 different pieces of land each in a different state!  I’ve personally never seen a sweepstakes like this. I think it’s a really cool idea.  This would be great to build a home on, set up a hunting cabin, a vacation home, etc.

Pennsylvania Property
I was also excited to see that one of the pieces of land to win is right here in my state of Pennsylvania of course I’m also eye balling the florida one thinking…vacation home?  I’m not sure how big or where exactly the PA one would be but there are tons of people here looking for new hunting ground.  If it was big enough and in the right place I could make some money renting it out to hunter for all the hunting seasons.  But I guess I’ll have to find out what the land is appropriate for first before I go making plans lol.  
Sweepstakes starts Oct. 1 – Oct 31 to get your entries in to win a piece of land! Open to US and Canada.

Enter the Land Central American Dream Land Sweepstakes by clicking the button below!

There will also be a Land Central twitter party Nov. 8 where they will give away more prizes.

Kmart’s Big Layaway Giveaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kmart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you already thinking about starting to buy your holiday gifts?  Do you have concerns about finding the best way to budget to get the kids the things they want without breaking the bank?  Maybe you worry that the hot toy this year will be sold out when you do get a chance to go get it.

All these concerns are a great reason to check out Kmart layaway for the holidays.  You can load up you cart with the kids’ wishlists and start shopping early for the rest of the family.  Kmart layaway lets you make payments on your santa bounty starting now.  Wouldn’t paying $50 a pay day until Christmas be a lot easier to handle then several hundred dollars when you’re down to the wire?  Kmart offers free layaway too.  I’ve used Kmart Layaway before.  Another benefit is not having to find a hiding spot in the house from curious eyes.

This year there’s yet another great reason to use Kmart’s layaway, Kmart’s Big Layaway Giveaway!  They are doing one layaway giveaway per store per week every week from 9/912 through 11/17/12!

So why use Kmart layaway instead of the layaway at another store?  Check out this handy chart that helps explain it.

While layaways are a great way to budget, it’s still important to make a budget plan.  Try to figure out how much you can afford to spend on gift for the holiday.  Don’t go over that amount even when you put items on layaway.  Be sure to budget for your layaway payments when they’re do.  There’s nothing worse than when it gets close to your layaway pick up deadline and you realize you can’t pay it off.  Layaways are great, but you still need to use financial sense.  

What would you add to your Kmart Layaway?  My 2 oldest boys really want one of these

My youngest usually wants what the older ones have. I think the Meep tablet might not be appropriate for him but I thought this might be.

So if I won the Kmart Big Layaway Giveaway would be so cool!  That’s a pretty big chunk of change for me.

Update, Got my Jingit VISA Debit Card today!

I wanted to update about Jingit.  I did actually received my Jingit Visa Debit Card today.  Only took about a week to get here and I was able to activate it.

My Jingit funds were easy to add to my account.  You have the option to add all or part of your Jingit earnings.  I believe I read that your earnings cap each week resets on Sundays so I’m itching to start earning more to earn to my debit card starting tomorrow.  I just checked the website and my funds are already showing up in my account.

If you’re just now reading about Jingit or this is the first Jingit post you noticed from me, Jingit let’s you earn money from watching videos, taking surveys, doing checkins with your smartphone, and scanning products with your smartphone and Walmart.  I earned $13 in two weeks. $2 of my earning went for the fee for my Jingit debit card which is so worth it.  You have to use your Jingit Debit card at least once every 90 days to ensure your don’t have any more charges debited from your earnings.  It’s free money though and it’s a VISA debit card backed by US Bank.  You can use your Jingit debit card anywhere VISA is accepted including online or in store. And a lot of their ads are partnered with Walmart so they are quality ads to watch. Some ads even earn you 4 box tops per ad for your school when you watch them on top of the money you earn.

You also have the option to use your earnings to get music downloads if you prefer.  Even starting now, late September, I think this will be awesome for some free money towards Christmas shopping.

I’m so excited about this program and have read a lot of good things about it from people that have been using it even longer than I have.  think about it, even if you only make $5 a week in free money, it’s gonna add up.  In 90 days you’d have about $60 or more or free money on your card to spend however you want to but I’ve earned more than that in a week and I’m just starting out.
