The winner may spend the cash any way he or she pleases but we thought we’d offer a few suggestions with our own Top 10 list of Ways to Spend The $50 We Are Giving Away! What would you do with the extra money?
10. Purchase a Photo Book you have created on Shutterfly
Make a Shutterfly Photo Book as a gift for someone you love. Watch for sales to get the best deals! These books make fantastic Christmas gifts.

9. Go out on a special date with your spouse or a friend.
Plan and pay for a night out. Head to the movies or connect over a meal.
8. Treat yourself to a manicure or a pedicure.
Are your calloused feet snagging on your sheets when you get in to bed? Don’t answer that. Make a call or walk in to your favorite nail spa. Pick a color and get pampered. Here are some of the hottest nail colors for fall from Harper’s BAZAAR, 11 Best Fall 2014 Nail Polish Colors.
7. Don’t Spend it. Save it!
Stash it away for an unexpected expense. Add it to your Christmas present fund. Resist the immediate gratification temptation and save it for the future.
6. Forget #7 and wrap yourself up in a new scarf. 🙂
A scarf is an easy way to update your wardrobe especially as the weather is getting a little chilly. Click here for a few inexpensive ideas from Target. Maybe you can afford two!
5. Put some gas in your tank.
Fifty bucks might not fill your tank depending on the car you drive but it will cover several gallons. Make the fifty go further by improving your gas mileage with these simple driving tips from fueleconomy.gov.
4. Buy A Week of 5-Ingredient Dinners
3. Buy and plant Tulips in your yard.
This is another lesson in delayed gratification. Plant tulip bulbs or trees in fall for beautiful color in early spring! Get more information from the Old Farmer’s Almanac article, How To Plant, Grow and Care for Tulip Flowers.
2. Give it away
Bless a friend, relative, your church or other charitable organization with fifty dollars. Or buy a bag of groceries for a food drive. This is the time of year when many food pantries for the needy get depleted. Your generosity could really help someone in need and leave you feeling so good inside!
1. Do with it as you please!
You already know what you’d do with the extra cash! You don’t need our help, thank you very much. Go for it.
