Monthly Giveaways

I’m thrilled to be able to offer a fun, big giveaway each month here at Simple Family Preparedness!

I know that working towards being better prepared isn’t always easy and takes sacrifices.  Oftentimes, those sacrifices are financial.  I’ve been truly blessed (yes, I see it as a blessing) through the THRIVE Life business opportunity.  My goal through these monthly giveaways, as well as the weekly ones as part of the Survival Kit Series is to “pay that forward” just a bit!

Hand Grain Mill

This month, I will be giving away TWO hand Hand Grain Mills!  This was has been an oft requested item for a giveaway.   I can’t wait to give a few of these away to some of my fabulous readers!

How to enter:

You must do two things to enter this giveaway:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and let me know if you prefer to follow me via email, a reader, facebook, or pinterest.  If for some reason you have trouble commenting, email me at [email protected] and I will comment for you.  But please do try to comment on your own first.  Just make sure you copy / paste the code and check the little box that says you are human!
  2. Make sure you are connected to me somehow: Follow me on facebook, subscribe to the blog in a reader or by email, or sign up for my THRIVE Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) specials updates.  Yes, doing at least one of these is mandatory.  Why?  Well, I don’t’ want this great gift to go to just anyone!  I want it to go to one of you: my loyal readers / customers!  I will check to make sure the winner is somehow connected to me.  NOTE: Please do not leave a separate comment telling me how you follow me (although you can include it in your main comment if you want!) as it makes it hard to tally up the valid entries when the giveaway is over.

That’s it!  Just take 30 seconds to connect with me and leave me a comment telling me the best way for YOU to follow me.


Want Extra Entries?

Sure!  Why not?  If you are willing to do a little more, you can have a few “extra” entries (up to four entries max (1 mandatory and three extra).  Please do not leave more than 4 comments total as it makes it difficult to count eligible entries:
