it’s the last day of the year which means it’s the end of December and time for a comping round up! 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.
December saw the biggest prize value unboxing of the year! I won my two biggest prizes of the year in November and they both feature in this months unboxing.
I hit the advents hard this year. The first week was a complete nightmare as I set up my routine and filtered out which advents I wanted to enter every day, which I wanted to keep tabs on on (remember the day 24 prize is often quite good even if they days leading up to it are not) and then on top of that I carried on trying to enter as many non advents as possible. It was exhausting at times but after the first week I managed to get into a bit more a routine and comping got back to a manageable chunk of my evening.
This month’s unboxing stats sees 25 prizes opened worth approximately £2350. That’s over double the number of last months prizes and the biggets value prize unboxing of the year.
Almost all of my wins were advent wins with the off few from non advent or regular competitions. I didn’t win a single web entry competition this month – everything I won was from social media, magazines and one from my Aquaphor blog post.
Either watch the video to see what we unboxed and where we won it from. Normally I post a list for those of you that are short on time but this month I’m so short on time that it’s video only I’m afraid!
So next year see the start of a new comping year! My 2018 comping review is now live with my usual colourful infographic with pie charts and bar graphs, plus look out in the new year for some new hints and tips comping posts coming your way.
I hope you all had a very successful December and can’t wait to start a new year fresh! My one comping new years resolution I’ll share with you now is to sort out my online photo storage to help me with uploading my effort entries, what’s yours?
