Welcome back everyone to April’s unboxing! For those of you that are new to the blog I’m a comper. You can read more about my comping and why I do it by clicking the link. But the short story is that after having to quit work due to keep up with my sons additional needs I needed to find something that meant we could still afford the nicer things in life.
Despite only opening a few prizes this month I was lucky enough to unbox one of our biggest prizes to date! We were all very excited to move house early this month, and whilst this meant taking an even bigger break from comping it was well worth it as we now have the most peaceful house to relax in!
Once I had internet back and we had sorted through a few boxes I started entering the odd competition here and there. Mr Glam & Geeky has even decided to have a go at doing a few comps every now and then so look out for him in an unboxing soon (if he wins anything!)
This month’s unboxing stats sees 7 prizes opened worth approximately £2150. That’s 5 prizes less than March and £1723 more in value. This just goes to show how different months can be!
Almost all of my prizes came from Twitter this month, although I did have a win arrive from instagram (all the way back from the advents!)
Check out the video below to see exactly what we won and how we won it. Now we are moved and (kinda) settled I will be starting to comp again a little more. I’m really focussing on trying to win more experiences rather than ‘things’ this year (that is unless we really need those ‘things’).
I am so excited it’s May. My youngest daughter is starting nursery so I am hoping to possibly have time to introduce more creative entries into my comping life. I have to say I am not particularly a creative person by nature but I do have enthusiasm by the bucket load which I love injecting into video entries which I always hope comes across when entries are judged.
More likely what will happen though is I will finally get round to doing all those little jobs in the house that need doing as well as trying to find time to write a few more posts for the blog rather than having the time to comp!
Hope you all had a great April and have a lucky May!
