Did I mention I won free Discoll's berries for a year? Yay me!
Awhile ago I saw a flyer by the Driscoll's berry display at my local grocer advertising a contest to win free berries for a year. I took one and the next time I had internet access, I signed myself up.
Just recently I came home, probably a little more than depressed, to find an envelope from Discoll's berries in my mailbox. I was thinking "great. now i'm getting junk mail from them too." The envelope sat on my counter for two days. When I opened it (along with the other mail I had been ignoring), I found 52 $5 coupons for Driscoll's berries.
Holy crap! The letter said that I was one of the winners of the Free Berries for a Year contest. I literally cannot remember the last time I won something. I definitely needed the emotional boost from my win.
Now as I sit enjoying my very first free raspberries (and walnuts), I'm so grateful. There are so many times I pass up fresh fruit because of the cost. I'm so excited to be able to buy fresh berries even if I don't have a cent to my name.
How lucky am I?
