One more for today...well, maybe only one. We'll see!
While we are on the favorite things kick, this is one of my absolute favorite websites ever. It is houseparty.com. They give you amazing discounts and FREE stuff from brands you know and love. All they want you to do in return is host a party with a few friends and family in your home to get the word out about the products. With each party comes your very own party pack with the coolest stuff in it.
I have won parties for X-Box Live, Dominos pizza (I got a $75 gift card amongst other stuff!), Gerber baby food (at a time when I really needed it!) and the most recent one I got was Arnold's Sandwich Thins (that round bread that is only 100 calories and has no high-fructose corn syrup in it). My sister-in-law won a Fisher-Price party a while back and got over $500 of free toys for her son! I can't use enough exclamation marks to describe the excitement when you win a party.
They have different parties to apply for all the time and I believe you can sign up for a mailing list so you can be the first to know when new parties are put on the site. For example, today, they e-mailed me to tell me that the Bicycle Playing Cards party is open for applications. I realllly want to win that one. I love playing card games!
