I was a comper before I was a blogger. I would enter competitions every single day. Then I had to let it slide when we started this blog, as two time-consuming hobbies didn’t sit well with family life. Recently I started doing some comping again, so I’m sharing my comper’s wish list for 2017.
What is a comper’s wish list, and why do I need one?
Well, I’ve taken advice from the Queen of Competitions, Di Coke, who shares many comping tips on her website Superlucky Me. Focussing on what you want to win is a good tactic. It helps save time entering competitions for prizes you don’t really want, and encourages a positive mindset. You can search for the prizes you want or need, and are much more likely to be successful. It also makes your time more manageable and stops you feeling overwhelmed.
You can also record your success against your wishlist, which is very motivating. And if all else fails, you’ve got a great birthday or Christmas present wishlist!
I find inspiration from competition websites, where I can browse through and see the type of prizes on offer and easily choose which I would like to win. In the run up to Christmas my focus shifts to toys and other things for my family. I also add to the list anything I might need but can’t really afford at the moment (like a new bed), or things I know are on their way out (like a laptop).
I had a very lucky month in October, when I first started doing competitions again (which I wrote about here), but not much since. I’m not giving in easily though, I’ve made a long list of wishes here!
- Robot vacuum cleaner
- Air fryer
- Nutri-Bullet style blender
- Stand mixer
- Holiday – especially America – Florida, New York or Vegas, or Niagra Falls, or a ski holiday
- Camera – especially one good for blogging
- New bed
- TV (preferably curved)
- Laptop for Paul
- Ride on Lawnmower (also a dream for Paul)
- Raised flowerbeds or other garden decorative items
- Garden shed/office/den
What are you wishing for? Have you made a list? Whatever it is, I wish you good luck!
