THIS is why I enter sweepstakes..... "You won't win if you don't enter"... I enter, therefore I win.

I got the email below on Oct 3 and received my carseat Oct 15. This carseat sells new for over $300!
As soon as my son outgrows the baby carseat that you carry and connects to his stroller, I have this and won't have to go out and buy a new carseat!  This is why I enter sweepstakes and share them with all of my blog readers! :-)  Someone has to win, right? 

See other things I have won: "You won't win if you don't enter" - my motto

See the list of coupons to be expected in tomorrow's newspaper here!

Sunday Coupon Preview has a list of the coupons in each insert that will be in newspapers tomorrow!

Your newspaper may even have a Target insert with some Axe and Dove coupons (among others!)
