The Winner's Circle
If you're a sweeper like me, then you've heard these words many times. "Oh nobody wins those things." or "You must just be lucky."
Trust me, luck has very little to do with it. As a matter of fact if you actually calculate the number of times I actually enter sweepstakes my luck must be incredibly bad.
This does not deter me however. I continue to enter sweepstakes and contests and I continue to win.
Here are my wins for the year 2010. Where possible I have placed the ARV of the prize.
