  3. Raquel Cook December 4, 2013 at 2:45 am #

    If I were lucky enough to win, I’d buy my sweet hubby the new gopro hero 3 he’s been wanting and I’d love to treat myself to a fancy new Epsom photo printer that is way out of my budget. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win! Merry Christmas!

  4. paula rabago December 4, 2013 at 3:28 am #

  11. Trish December 4, 2013 at 7:31 am #

    I would share with my entire family! But I might spoil myself a little extra! I could use new cookware, workout videos, cookbooks, etc…

  12. Brein December 4, 2013 at 7:31 am #

  17. Heather December 4, 2013 at 7:32 am #

  18. Jessica December 4, 2013 at 7:33 am #

    I would for sure get some awesome gifts for family members for Christmas! I am student and working full time and have student loan debt and my family means the world to me so it would be awesome to be able to give them something amazing for Christmas 🙂 I would also love to use some of it to purchase school books and of course maybe spoil myself with a small surprise 🙂

  19. Amanda Kauffeld December 4, 2013 at 7:33 am #

    I would finish up Christmas shopping for my family, get some new books for myself, and send some surprise gifts to a few of my friends! I LOVE playing Santa!!

  20. Caroline Hari December 4, 2013 at 7:33 am #

    I would use the gift card for my kids., my husband and myself. My kids need some new clothes, my husband wants outdoor/camping gear and I would like to have a mini deep freezer.

  21. Kim December 4, 2013 at 7:33 am #

  26. Wendy Shepherd December 4, 2013 at 7:34 am #

    I would save a little, spend a little and give more!

  27. Marriah December 4, 2013 at 7:35 am #

    I would buy a vitamix blender for our family, and some new cookbooks to help with our lifestyle change. My son is dx with Aspergers and ADHD and changing our diet has proved to be the best thing to help him thrive!

  28. Shelley December 4, 2013 at 7:35 am #

    Whoa!!!!! This is so awesome! Just *thinking* about the wishlist is exciting, even if I do not win… BUT! If I do win, I would totally buy a pink Kitchenaid stand mixer, and then get my kiddos the things on their Christmas wishlist that my husband and I were unable to afford, then I would use the rest to buy a couple books and a gift for my mama! This is so cool, thank you for doing this! Merry Christmas!

  29. Julie Craig December 4, 2013 at 7:36 am #

    I would help my daughter and her husband out by getting them some items they are needing. Also would buy toys for a local Christmas charity I volunteer for called Mission Norman

  30. Cheryl December 4, 2013 at 7:36 am #

    I would give my soon-to-be 4 year old twin girls the best birthday ever. I’d buy my first paleo book and start my journey. I would jump up & down repeatedly and scream like a preteen girl at a justin beiber concert!!!!

  31. Brittany December 4, 2013 at 7:36 am #

    I would spend it on my boys- Archie (5) & Noah (2). My husband works 3 jobs and we struggle so much that we don’t have much. I’d love to be able to get them nice bedding and other things for their room including books (which they very much love to read) and a nice big bookshelf for all of them to go. These two are the sweetest and they deserve the best that the world has to offer, we just can’t afford to give them the best right now. Thank you for your kindness!

  32. Catherine December 4, 2013 at 7:36 am #

    I am not totally sure what I would do with it! Probably stuff for my kids.

  33. April Clark December 4, 2013 at 7:36 am #

    We have four children. My husband and I are buying one thing per child and as in years past, we do not buy for each other. If we won this gift card, we could actually buy each other a present- which we have not done in over FIVE YEARS.

  34. Erin December 4, 2013 at 7:36 am #

    I hope to win so I could also buy some Christmas gifts for my family & also get some of those kitchen gadgets to help me on my journey to a healthier lifestyle for me & my family as well!

  35. Leslie fugate December 4, 2013 at 7:37 am #

    Well I guess I’m not unique…. I would love to stock my soon to be all-paleo kitchen!!! And last minute treats for the fam!

  36. nichole December 4, 2013 at 7:37 am #

    I would buy a couple of presents for my kids, but then I would make a less fortunate family’s Christmas bright!

  38. Michelle Lamont December 4, 2013 at 7:37 am #

    I would be so excited and make this Christmas such a suprise for my husband and daughter. I’d love to be able to watch them open so many fun things Christmas morning that weren’t expected due to finances.

  39. Basma O'Neill December 4, 2013 at 7:38 am #

    Mama needs boots! I just moved to Utah and it’s cold!

  40. tess brunetti December 4, 2013 at 7:38 am #

  45. Betty Stevens December 4, 2013 at 7:39 am #

    I would give my family the Christmas they deserve! We don’t have a lot of money, so this would help a great deal!

  46. Kristi December 4, 2013 at 7:40 am #

    I might be so overwhelmed if I won this I wouldn’t know what to buy first!

  47. Kierstin O'Brien December 4, 2013 at 7:40 am #

    I would use this gift card to buy some kitchen tools I have been dying to get. I would buy a Vitamix and a dehydrator for sure!

  48. Allie December 4, 2013 at 7:40 am #

    WHAT would I do with $1K to Amazon.com?! It’s going to sound awful boring to some . . . I’d go supplement shopping. I have one boy with Autism, and another we suspect has it, and all four of our kids have varying digestive issues, so $1K would go far. Good quality multivitamins, pastured beef gelatin, dried elderberries, probiotics, some good sensory therapy toys . . . that would be completely and totally awesome. 😀

    • ShaktiMama December 9, 2013 at 10:06 pm #

      I hope you win!!

  49. Sarah S December 4, 2013 at 7:40 am #

    I’d finish Christmas shopping for my 4 kids and then plan a fun little getaway in the snow since we don’t get a drop of it here in FL!! 🙂

  50. Abby December 4, 2013 at 7:40 am #

    I would use the gift card to stock up on a lot of basics that are needed to make homemade makeup, lotion, body wash, soap, cleaning supplies. And basic ingredients for cooking and making kombucha and other homemade fermented foods!

  51. Nicole Paider December 4, 2013 at 7:41 am #

    This is great! I’d buy books, kitchen appliances, something for my son of course, there are just so many things I could do with this! Thank you!

  52. Jacquie December 4, 2013 at 7:41 am #

    Thank you!! This is a wonderful opportunity! I would give my boys, who have never had the ability to enjoy a big Christmas, a nice memory to carry. I would also like to stock the kitchen with pantry items not found in store, so that it is easier to be full Paleo. I especially want to get the gelatin. Most of all , I would like to get my mom everything she needs for her kitchen, so that she can prepare Paleo/Primal meals for my little sister.

  53. Marsha December 4, 2013 at 7:41 am #

    Awesome. I’d actually use most of it to bless others that I hardly know. 🙂 Fun!!!!

  54. Lindsey December 4, 2013 at 7:41 am #

    I would buy a year’s supply of household goods – would be a HUGE savings to my budget and probably make me cry with joy 🙂

  55. Michelle Lamont December 4, 2013 at 7:41 am #

    I just realized it it wouldn’t be in time for Christmas so I’d like to revise my answer. I’d use it for my husband for his bday in April and get my daughter some surprises as well. 🙂

  56. Fernando December 4, 2013 at 7:42 am #

    I would use this on my family and things they need.

  60. Kate R. December 4, 2013 at 7:42 am #

    I will be lots of presents for my Fam & friends!!!

  61. Lynne December 4, 2013 at 7:43 am #

    What a great gift! I would be gifting my friends and family with lots of healthy items and information. We are all trying to eat clean, get more exercise and use more earth friendly products. What a great start this would be! Thank you! Good Luck everyone!

  62. Theresa December 4, 2013 at 7:43 am #

    I would gift this to an amazing autism mommy that I know that puts her heart, soul, and every dime towards healing her kiddos! she is an inspiration and totally deserves it.

  63. susan December 4, 2013 at 7:43 am #

    wow, what would I do???!?! If I didn’t pass out from shock of winning something lol, I would probably buy a few kitchen items to make fun healthy kiddo foods, a few canning supplies and then pick up a few baby items like diapers and sleep n plays for our local womens help center. 🙂

  64. Katrina December 4, 2013 at 7:43 am #

  65. Mary December 4, 2013 at 7:43 am #

    • Molly Hartz December 4, 2013 at 1:09 pm #

      I would like to purchase toys for the children , food and gifts for the shelter, animal and human, and storage items and tools to help me work and eat healthy and work too. I have just joined a co-op and am learning all over again!

  66. Ali December 4, 2013 at 7:43 am #

    I would use this gift card to buy all the cook books and kitchen gadgets on my amazon wish list 🙂

  67. Kathryn December 4, 2013 at 7:43 am #

    I would use this gift card on Christmas presents for my family and possibly to buy the ingredients to make homemade laundry detergent!! So exciting!

  68. Alicia December 4, 2013 at 7:44 am #

    What a wonderful way to spread Christmas cheer!
    If I won, I’d buy a Vitamix and an Excalibur dehydrator. If there was anything left over after those high priced items, I’d add products for my pantry that I usually cringe at the prices when I have to buy.
    Merry Christmas and thank you!

  69. Anna Hornstra December 4, 2013 at 7:44 am #

    Because we feel so blessed and would like to pass it on……I commit to use the 1,000 to provide for a family in need and start off the New Year right

  73. Sheila December 4, 2013 at 7:44 am #

    I would definitely use it to buy Christmas gifts for my children. This year has been difficult with health problems and medical bills so it’s definitely a tight year.

  74. Jennifer December 4, 2013 at 7:46 am #

  77. Ashley M. December 4, 2013 at 7:47 am #

    I cannot even comprehend an extra $1,000 to spend on Amazon! BUT if I win, I have no doubt I will come up with a few things – some cast iron pans & tea kettle, pantry staples, homemade soap/lotion supplies, and of course, lots of books! Thanks for doing this – Merry Christmas!

  83. Amy December 4, 2013 at 7:47 am #

  84. Jill Charter December 4, 2013 at 7:48 am #

    Love Amazon and paleo mom!

  88. Nancy December 4, 2013 at 7:48 am #

    Being that I’ve been unemployed fora year, my family will actually get a Christmas gift from me, rather than an IOU

  89. gina smith December 4, 2013 at 7:48 am #

    I would have the BEST homeschooling library/activity center

  90. April McKnight December 4, 2013 at 7:49 am #

  98. Lara castillo December 4, 2013 at 7:51 am #

    I would use the money to buy my son his gluten-free foods that are much cheaper to buy a in bulk on Amazon then buying the store. He has celiac disease and autism so the diet is very crucial!

  99. shannon December 4, 2013 at 7:51 am #

    I would buy a colloidal silver maker and what be I would need to start making silver and give it away! I would also buy a water filtration system that also removes Fluoride From Tap water.

    I’m not sure what I would do with the entire amount (we have five children, someone always needs something) on the card but I know that I would definitely purchase a better blender than the plastic $25 one that I have now.

    I would buy a wealth of excercise dvd’s and health cookbooks for our Fire Hall. Too many of the men I work with have no idea that eating well, doesn’t have to mean starving yourself. I would likely also treat myself to a new hand blender, I’ve had mine since college (over 16 years!)

  116. Lisa December 4, 2013 at 7:56 am #

    As a single Mom, I’d be able to give my two girls a Christmas like they haven’t enjoyed in a LONG time, which would include a huge, organic meal on Christmas. Penny pinching doesn’t stop just because it’s Christmas. :/

  117. Stephanie December 4, 2013 at 7:56 am #

    Finally buy all the things on my “saved for later” list!!! lol Books, kitchen gadgets, shoes, oh my!!!!

  118. Kimberly Johnson December 4, 2013 at 7:57 am #

    Wow what an amazing gift! I would use it to buy quality food and the tools to make it, for my family and myself. I’ve been battling several autoimmune conditions since I was a young teenager and proper nourishment has been my saving grace. I’ve strayed away from conventional medicine since my body is hypersensitive to the toxicity that comes along with it and I also believe in the power of food as medicine. This would literally be a lifesaver for me!

  119. Tari December 4, 2013 at 7:57 am #

    I would use this gift card for my son and I. He has plenty of toys, so I would use it for books and clothes. For me, I would use it to help me pay for my expensive textbooks. I’m also an esthetician and have to buy my own supplies. I would love a towel warmer and to be able to stock up on all my supplies.

  120. Angel December 4, 2013 at 7:57 am #

    I’m ultra cheap. It would hurt my soul to spend that much. Ouch! But…..after 15 years of marriage and 5 kids, I think I would finally break down and buy a mixer, a nice present for my inlaws and my dad. The rest would be saved for shoes for the family when needed. Wish lists are fun!

  121. Christina Driggers December 4, 2013 at 7:57 am #

    Oh dear. Where to begin. I’d give my kids late Christmas and buy some gentle parenting books to share with my mommy friends. And enough coconut oil to do oil pulling and gelatin for bone health. And save some of it bc kids birthdays feb a two yr old. March a 19 yr old. April a 15 yr old. ♡♡♡♡♡♥♥♥♥♥♡♡♡♡♡ thank you for this giveaway.

  122. Natalie December 4, 2013 at 7:58 am #

    I would finish Christmas shopping and use it on diapers, household items 🙂

  123. Connie D December 4, 2013 at 7:58 am #

    Wow, I would do so much! My Dad recently lot his job and all though he is retirement my parents did not plan well, so I would love to provide them with an extra special Christmas this year. I would also like to buy a dehydrator, I am alone on my food journey my husband and kids have not joined me fully but I would love to be able to experiment with food ideas that would help me to make this transition with me!

  124. Sara December 4, 2013 at 7:58 am #

    With our budget being as tight as it is I would get things we desperately need for our kitchen, my boys, etc.

  125. Ashley Chavez December 4, 2013 at 7:59 am #

    I would use the money to buy a bed because we are moving into a house and it’s pretty much empty. I would use the rest on toys for my in home childcare center I just started.

  126. Karen December 4, 2013 at 7:59 am #

    I would buy some kitchen tools to help me make healthy food for my family. And I would also use it to buy my kids shoes when they outgrow them and some healthy supplements.

  127. Erin December 4, 2013 at 7:59 am #

    It would definitely come in handy with a new baby on the way. Thank you!

  128. Kaila December 4, 2013 at 7:59 am #

    I would order things we’ve been needing/wanting. Like a Berkey 🙂

  129. Michele p. December 4, 2013 at 8:00 am #

    great giveaway! I would use the gift card to buy things that I really like, without feeling guilty that I’m not the one bringing home the majority of the bacon. 🙂

  130. Pam Dearden December 4, 2013 at 8:00 am #

    I think I might just splurge on myself!!! hohoho.

  131. Coreena December 4, 2013 at 8:00 am #

    I would invest it in my family’s health. We need to get on the right track with better small kitchen appliances and cookware, so we could actually cook at home. 🙂

  132. Fiona December 4, 2013 at 8:00 am #

    My husband has been off in disability since last February and has been depressed because of it. I would give him the best Christmas ever and also add to my paleo cookbook collection, paleo food and a few things for my son

  133. Kristy December 4, 2013 at 8:01 am #

    If start with the 21 Day Sugar Detox Book and cookbook that I’ve had my eye on 🙂

  134. April December 4, 2013 at 8:01 am #

    I’d buy a Vitamix for sure & spread the wealth around…donate to local charities, help pay off some bills, donate to church and save a little too 🙂

  135. Jennifer December 4, 2013 at 8:01 am #

    I would provide my 2 and 4 year old a magical christmas and also surprise my hubby and our family and friends with some sweet gifts. Thank you for the opportunity.

  136. Ashley Martin December 4, 2013 at 8:02 am #

    oh my! vitamix, new pans and dishes, gifts for my young boys and husband 🙂 thank you!!!

  137. Mandi December 4, 2013 at 8:02 am #

    I would use this money to help with Christmas. What an awesome give away!

  138. Pam December 4, 2013 at 8:03 am #

    A new home library for my daughter and I!

  139. Lisa Rhodes December 4, 2013 at 8:03 am #

    My husband and I are expecting our first child and I would love to use this either on bills to pay off before he gets here or on his necessities. It would definitely make things a lot smoother. 🙂

  140. Susan R December 4, 2013 at 8:03 am #

    Christmas gifts for my babies, cast iron set, coconut oil and of course almind flour!!!

  141. Shelli Walker December 4, 2013 at 8:03 am #

    With a new baby on the way, I would use the gift card to help check things off our list. Then, I would love to be able to surprise my husband with a few of the techy things he’s been wishing for that just don’t fit in our budget right now.

  142. Lauren Thorne December 4, 2013 at 8:04 am #

    We are moving into out new house in two weeks after living with my parents for several months during our house hunt. I buy all of our staples like almond flour, coconut milk, ect from amazon and of use the money to restock! We have an amazing new pantry and cellar and I can’t wait to fill it up 🙂

  143. shelley December 4, 2013 at 8:05 am #

    I have my 1st baby due in March so I would use the money to buy all the baby items we will be needing….and maybe a few last minute XMas gifts too 🙂

  144. Courtney December 4, 2013 at 8:05 am #

    I would buy a chicken coop and chickens for our backyard! I’ve been wanting one for years!! Thanks!!

  145. Anna December 4, 2013 at 8:06 am #

    I would use the gift card for a stand mixer and some new silicone muffin pans. I’d still have money leftover! Hmm…. Maybe I’d stock up on my Paleo pantry essentials, too. *fingers crossed*

  146. Kimberly Ruzicka December 4, 2013 at 8:06 am #

    Kitchen gadgets!

  147. Chelsea Wipf December 4, 2013 at 8:06 am #

    I would order all the books that I have had saved on my wishlist for forever!

  148. Carrie McGarry December 4, 2013 at 8:07 am #

    Wow this would cover all of our spending on things for our house this year. I cannot even begin to explain how awesome this would be. Thanks so much for the chance!!!

  149. Janice December 4, 2013 at 8:08 am #

    I would use the money to start my essential oils collection and to buy tools to make my own soap.

  150. Hope December 4, 2013 at 8:08 am #

    Definitely would get some kitchen stuff and some things for the kids 🙂

  151. Elizabeth Peshia December 4, 2013 at 8:08 am #

    I am trying to slowing stock my pantry and kitchen with whole, healthy foods for me and my new husband. I have type 1 diabetes and my husband is lactose intolerant. So we are always looking for food to help both of us stay healthy. Paycheck to paycheck I have to make decisions on what to buy and what to pass up till next time. I would LOVE to start our marriage/family off with healthy foods that will keep us happy and healthy!!! 🙂 Your blog has helped me a lot with ideas on how to make living paleo-ish a reality for us!

  152. LibbyLabel December 4, 2013 at 8:10 am #

    I would gratefully use the Amazon card for “special” ingredients that I can’t find around here, I would like a lot of different canning supplies/gadgets, I would order lots of books and cookbooks on Paleo and I would probably pay it forward and get a friend started with supplies/books,cookbooks to start a healthy lifestyle!

  153. Suzanne C December 4, 2013 at 8:11 am #

    I’d start by getting one of the high speed blenders I see everywhere. (my plain ole blender is 14+ years old and well loved.)

  154. Jaime December 4, 2013 at 8:11 am #

    I would use the money to help offset the cost of our upcoming international move! We will need electronics, household items that “fit” the outlets, windows, etc!

  155. Kathy Hart December 4, 2013 at 8:11 am #

    I would use this to buy some Paleo cookbooks and some essentials, like coconut flour, almond flour, coconut sugar, and coconut milk! Thanks!

  156. Jessica Turner December 4, 2013 at 8:12 am #

    Wow $1000!! Well I would start by buying all the awesome gadgets for my kitchen and then I would buy all the awesome things I don’t have. Like gelatin, FCLO, and just all sorts of things that I don’t have.

  157. izzy December 4, 2013 at 8:12 am #

    With $1000 I would donate to different charities that help with Christmas for less fortunate. I love giving to others.

  158. Beth h December 4, 2013 at 8:13 am #

    I would purchase a new set of cast iron pans. Then the rest I would spend on family, friends, and our Christmas family in need donation. Thanks for the giveaway!

  159. Becca December 4, 2013 at 8:13 am #

    I would use it to help with running gear. It is a new sport to me and have only been running a year and LOVE IT! My husband and I never realized how rewarding it can be. We have lost a combined total of 200 lbs. Our eating habits have changed drastically and we are focused on whole living now.

  160. Michelle E December 4, 2013 at 8:13 am #

    I would use this for food and household items so we could use our regular income to catch up on some other things!

  161. Jessica Hicks December 4, 2013 at 8:14 am #

    I would buy a lot of stuff on my amazon wish list that we just can’t get right now.

  162. Korina December 4, 2013 at 8:14 am #

    With a $1k gift card, I would buy Christmas presents and paleo goodies. Our closest ‘natural’ grocery store (that meets my health needs) is about 45min away from where we live. Lots of the products that I consume can be found on amazon!

  163. Krista laird December 4, 2013 at 8:15 am #

    I would definitely stock my pantry with all kinds of healthy goodies. I normally order all my staples from amazon such as almond flour, coconut flour, coconut oil, etc. I’m currently running extremely low on all of the above so I am super excited to have this chance to win a $1000 gift card from my favorite online market!!

  164. Beth Walker December 4, 2013 at 8:15 am #

    I would use the money to make more of our yard (stuff for gardening, growing year round veggies & herbs, etc), kitchen appliances that I have always wanted, just to name a few

  165. Tracy December 4, 2013 at 8:15 am #

    I would use the $1000 to finish buying the items we need for the home we just renovated! Restoring this 1950 cottage has been a 5 month labor of love and we absolutely love it, but still have lots to do!

  166. Sarah S. December 4, 2013 at 8:15 am #

    I could give my kids the Christmas that we can’t afford. I would also find another family in need, and help them out as well.

  167. Leanna Anderson December 4, 2013 at 8:15 am #

    First I would buy a couple things for my boys (they’re in they’re 20’s). The rest would be for the husband and myself. I have a couple Paleo books in mind that we need!!

  168. Pam December 4, 2013 at 8:15 am #

    Wow!Where to begin…

  169. Margaret December 4, 2013 at 8:15 am #

    Vitamix for myself and gifts for the family

  170. Mandy P. December 4, 2013 at 8:16 am #

    With $1000 I would stock up on some organic, non-GMO things that I can’t find locally. We’re in a small town and our grocery and specialty stores are very limited in the paleo-friendly goods they carry so I have to improvise a lot. I would also add to my children’s home library. I home school both of my kiddos and there are so many beautiful books I would like them to read that aren’t in the library!

  171. Maureen woods December 4, 2013 at 8:16 am #

    I would buy a new blender and thine some essential oils and a Himalayan salt lamp 🙂 thanks for the awesome give away!!!

  172. jessica December 4, 2013 at 8:17 am #

    Would finally buy myself a serger and a vitamix!

  173. Dede Kingston December 4, 2013 at 8:18 am #

    I’d love to buy a Vitamix but what I would really need to do is buy some clothes that fit my husband and me since we’ve both lost so much weight since going Paleo, but we don’t have the money to buy them. He’s not working and we never buy anything for ourselves. It would be so awesome to splurge on something just for us, for once!

  174. Jessica December 4, 2013 at 8:18 am #

    I would love to win because it would allow me to spread the holiday cheer! I would help me buy a refrigerator which I am in dire need of. I hope I win!

  175. Candice Gomez December 4, 2013 at 8:18 am #

    My baby brother is getting married in March so I would use some of the money to buy them some awesome wedding presents for a healthy kitchen. They both love to cook & could use some good pots & pans, a mixer & other goodies. I would have to invest in a good processor for my kitchen….been wanting one for a while but it’s not in the budget right now. Thank you so much fir the amazing giveaway!!!

  176. Krysten Lerchbacker December 4, 2013 at 8:18 am #

    I would use the money to buy new things that I need for moving out on my own!

  177. Kris W. December 4, 2013 at 8:19 am #

    Awesome giveaway! Thanks!! I would use it to get a new Vita Mix and a Kitchen Aide Stand Mixer 🙂

  178. Lisa Koz December 4, 2013 at 8:20 am #

    I would be buying some Christmas gifts. 🙂 Gotta be honest

  179. Jessica December 4, 2013 at 8:20 am #

    I would spoil my kids! But first thing, I would buy my son a tablet… He has sensory processing disorder and a tablet would be a huge blessing for our family.

  180. shawna Murphy December 4, 2013 at 8:20 am #

    this Would Be Great! I Was diagnosed With An Untreatable Lung Disease this Year. It’s Been Sparse Living Sinc I Couldn’t Work So I Would Catch Up On Letting My Daughter Live Life Without Always Saying “We Just Can’t Afford It Right Now.” Wooohooo!

  181. Cheryl Goodall December 4, 2013 at 8:21 am #

    First of all, what an amazing generous gift!!! I would 10% to our local church. Second, I would love to provide to my family, friends, and co-workers an all PALEO gift basket. I would hand-write a letter for each one and explain how much I care for them and why I chose this PALEO gift for them. Thank you for your generosity and your wonderful friends generosity!!!

  182. Kasey Gerhart December 4, 2013 at 8:23 am #

    After paying off a credit card (being honest!), we would get our little girl a trampoline for the backyard (with a safety net of course). I believe strongly in getting kids outside as often as possible, and that would be a wonderful way to do it, especially since she is such a little jumping bean already. My hubby has also been dreaming of a new knife set…so I can see that in his future.

  183. mandie December 4, 2013 at 8:23 am #

    I would use this gift card to help buy my daughter family members presents for christmas and supplies for my bakery that ive been unable to afford. I run a whole foods and grain free bakery from my home to allow me to homeschool my daughter. As a single mom it is still important to me that i raise my daughter the best way i can.

  184. Carrie December 4, 2013 at 8:24 am #

    This would mostly go to buying my triplets necessities. I would use any remaining amount for kitchen gadgets or ingredients to continue a healthy lifestyle. Merry Christmas!

  185. Jen Andrews December 4, 2013 at 8:24 am #

    I would use it to buy grass fed beef for my family!

  186. nicole rao December 4, 2013 at 8:25 am #

    Ohhh I have no clue!! I’d probably use it for the kids bdays next year and things hubs and I have wanted but couldn’t justify buying for ourselves 😀

  187. Nikki December 4, 2013 at 8:25 am #

    Thinking about all the things I could purchase with the gift card. I could start stocking up my pantry. 🙂

  188. Tamara December 4, 2013 at 8:25 am #

    I would use it to purchase some new clothes for myself as I have lost weight. Would also use it to add to my crossfit gym I outfitted in my garage to work out. Thanks!

  189. Bethany December 4, 2013 at 8:25 am #

    Take my little mister on a Christmas shopping spree. Oh, and buy those boots I really want.

  190. Katie December 4, 2013 at 8:25 am #

    Great giveaway. I would invest in anything (books, cooking items, workout gear) to help me on my fitness & lifestyle change & journey!

  191. Christine Pries December 4, 2013 at 8:27 am #

    i have a 4 year old son, who has a bit of a weight issue. I would like to get into a healthier lifestyle for him, having our house be strickly Paleo, maybe have him join a sport I have not been able to afford. Then I have 24 nieces and nephews, so I would like to get them some gifts if I could.

  192. Pam K. December 4, 2013 at 8:27 am #

    I would buy some great whole foods products, gelatin, Vit. D, elderberries, gummy bear silicone baking pans, a winter jacket for my son, a few books, maybe a new jacket for my husband, a mandoline slicer, and one of those things that makes noodles from zucchini. Oh my. The possibilities are endless!

  193. Jennifer December 4, 2013 at 8:28 am #

    I would buy Christmas presents for my whole family!

  194. Sara December 4, 2013 at 8:29 am #

    I would buy everything off my Amazon wish list for myself and my family/friends to help us on our journey to get healthy.

  195. Laura Hopkins December 4, 2013 at 8:29 am #

    I would restock the pantry and buy all of the fun stuff I have on my amazon wish list like kitchen items, cookbooks, food, cast iron cookware, etc. Super fun!

  196. Trina December 4, 2013 at 8:29 am #

    Ooohhhh!!!! This would be a wonderful prize to win! I could buy new running shoes and books and something awesome for the hubby!!!

  197. Natalie Huizenga December 4, 2013 at 8:30 am #

    Thanks – great idea! love Amazon!

  198. Cait C December 4, 2013 at 8:30 am #

    I really want a Vitamix or similar blender, and a ton of other fun gadgets and books…but I know me and I’d most likely use it to buy my friends and family gifts!

  199. Sara Mills December 4, 2013 at 8:31 am #

    Buy Christmas gifts maybe some for myself lol 🙂

  200. Annette House December 4, 2013 at 8:32 am #

    I would restock my pantry with Wholefoods and get rid of all the processed

  201. Tina Piche December 4, 2013 at 8:33 am #

    Oh wow! Merry Christmas! This is terrific, I would probably get my parents some things they have been wanting for a while as well as the essential oils, specialty flours and coconut oil, and the chicken coop I’ve had my eye on 😉 Thanks for the opportunity to play along!

  202. Katie December 4, 2013 at 8:34 am #

    I would buy presents for my family and friends and also stock up on some books to donate to the local children’s hospital. I am trying to do random acts of kindness this holiday season!

    I would probably buy myself one or two things too 🙂

  203. Samantha v December 4, 2013 at 8:35 am #

    I’d use it for things I need like paleo foods, supplements, getting a birthing pool for my home birth 🙂 as well:)

  204. Sue December 4, 2013 at 8:36 am #

    I would buy new swim gear for my girls!

  205. Shaughn Hutchinson December 4, 2013 at 8:37 am #

    Amazing gift. Makes me giddy to think about what I could do.

  206. Moira B December 4, 2013 at 8:37 am #

    I’d use it to buy groceries, the remaining few Christmas presents and other household items so that we can continue to pay-down-debt with Dave Ramsey’s baby steps.

  207. Kathryn December 4, 2013 at 8:38 am #

    This has been a very financially straining years for our family. This would be an enormous blessing and answer to prayer.

  208. Tory December 4, 2013 at 8:38 am #

    I would use it to make Christmas extra magical for my 6 year old son and 4 year old daughter. Thank you for your generosity. :o)

  209. Chrystal December 4, 2013 at 8:40 am #

    We are adopting a little boy with medical needs from Eastern Europe and could use this for a car seat and other things we need before he comes home late winter/early spring!

  210. jen s December 4, 2013 at 8:40 am #

    i wouldn’t tell anyone i won and i’d buy all sorts of surprise gifts for everyone in my family!

  211. Lynn v December 4, 2013 at 8:40 am #

    I would use this to give my family some of the things they’ve really been wanting for Christmas and to fill the toys for tots box at my sons school. I would use a little for myself, to buy some Paleo ingredients I haven’t been able to buy mysefl before (beef gelatin, cocoa butter..).
    Thanks for the chance!!

  212. Priscilla D. December 4, 2013 at 8:41 am #

    If I won, I would use it for Christmas gifts for my nieces!

  213. Tracy E. December 4, 2013 at 8:41 am #

  218. Bonnie Bellis December 4, 2013 at 8:43 am #

    Wow how generous and awesome of you, Paleo Mama! I would use part of the $1,000 to purchase needed items for local food banks. They are always in need of non-food items not covered by govt assistance. After stocking up on some essentials, I would also bless my family and me 🙂

    Would buy a kitchenaid stand mixer or a vitamix and load up my boy book shelf with lots of books (maybe a few for me too :).

  224. April Herrmann December 4, 2013 at 8:46 am #

    Put it towards our Florida trip we are saving for in May!

  233. Jennifer December 4, 2013 at 8:52 am #

    I have had my eye on a few things such as the gadget to make the spiral noodles. Plus, my son has been asking for some Mario toys. $1,000 is a lot of money so I’m sure more Christmas gifts and some awesome stuff for me.

  234. Carmen December 4, 2013 at 8:52 am #

    If I won this giftcard I would buy my dad a new bicycle. His brand new one was recently stolen and it’s his only mode of transportation.

  235. Beth Altman December 4, 2013 at 8:53 am #

    I would use it for Christmas gifts, a slow cooker (mine gave up the ghost 2 weeks ago), and a food dehydrator. I also get to remove some of the things on my wish list and “save for later” list that I already have on Amazon 🙂 Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

  236. Chelsea December 4, 2013 at 8:54 am #

    This is exciting! I would use some of it to help out a family in need. Also, ever since we started paleo a lot of people have asked how we do it, therefore I would buy a few cookbooks for them. I also would invest in a few things I’d like for our kitchen to make paleo easier! Kitchen aid mixer and dehydrator for sure!

  237. Roxy December 4, 2013 at 8:54 am #

    I started a new adventure this past fall……I’m homeschooling my two kids. We desperately need a new laptop. My oldest does the majority of her work on the computer, however, that means we all have to schedule time in front of it now. We need odds and ends around the house. We are still in the process of setting up desks and work stations. We need better art supplies and research books. I am a project oriented person, we need more materials!!! That’s what I would use the $ for, my children’s education!

  238. Doug December 4, 2013 at 8:54 am #

    I just moved into a new house and am starting a Paleo challenge/diet – starting fresh on many levels! I would use this to stock my kitchen with the tools to become and stay healthy!

  239. Lynn December 4, 2013 at 8:54 am #

    Christmas gifts for family and friends and some just for me from my wish list!

  240. Lori Post December 4, 2013 at 8:55 am #

    Oh, there are soooo many things. I need some equipment for my kitchen, ie. a food dehydrator, or a food processor. My daughter loves my mixer and my vitamix, maybe a gift for her. Something definitely for my 8 grandkids to enjoy at my house, maybe a rebounder. Thanks for the chance 😀

  241. Jami T December 4, 2013 at 8:55 am #

    First off…bless you for your generous giving! May you be abundantly blessed in return! With $1000 gift card, I would purchase my 4 nephews (all have December birthdays) their birthday AND Christmas gifts! Then I would purchase equipment for our new volleyball club. I am a military wife and in our current town volleyball is pretty unheard of. We are trying to gather funds to pay for military kiddos who financially can’t afford to play volleyball. By purchasing equipment with an amazon gift card we could use our equipment money to offer more scholarships! Lastly any remaining money I would use to buy board game for Operation Home Front for military families. Again bless you for your generous spirit of giving this Christmas season!

  242. cathy December 4, 2013 at 8:55 am #

    COOKWARE and a smoker.

  243. Kerri December 4, 2013 at 8:55 am #

    This is amazing!! I would put it toward Christmas presents for my son and my 2 year old nephew who just had his third open heart surgery. Thank you!

  244. Chasity December 4, 2013 at 8:56 am #

    A bit of Christmas shopping, chickens and more goats!!

  245. Luciana December 4, 2013 at 8:57 am #

    I would buy new cookware and gadgets for the kitchen! Also Christmas presents for my family, close and far!

  246. Lindsey December 4, 2013 at 8:57 am #

    I would use it for my kids and I just might buy that vitamix 🙂 Pay it forward and help someone who helped me last Christmas season.

  247. Jenny L December 4, 2013 at 8:58 am #

    I would use it to do something special. The feeling you get from brightening someones day is like no other.

  248. Julie December 4, 2013 at 9:00 am #

    I would buy lots of staples for our family- raw honey, coconut oil, ACV, organic herbs and spices, essential oils, salt lamps….what wouldn’t I buy?! AWESOME giveaway!

  249. Stephanie Warren December 4, 2013 at 9:00 am #

    This would be a huge help with the repairs and painting I need to do on my house!

  250. Jessica December 4, 2013 at 9:00 am #

    I would buy a cast iron skillet and gifts for family members! And I would be SO HAPPY!!!

  251. Erin December 4, 2013 at 9:01 am #

    New winter shoes and school clothes… It’s cold!

  252. Tracy December 4, 2013 at 9:01 am #

    I’d stock up on essential oils, and purchase a good blender and dehydrator.

  253. Karla W December 4, 2013 at 9:01 am #

    Ohhh! I would use it to buy all the kitchen gadgets I’ve been dreaming of. One of each for me and for my friend!!

  254. Stephanie Heredia December 4, 2013 at 9:01 am #

    Wow! What a giveaway! Christmas gifts…birthday gifts…cookbooks…this could take care of a lot! Happy holidays!

  255. Dawn December 4, 2013 at 9:01 am #

    Restock the cloth diaper supply. Get more homeschooling materials. Books. Yarn. Pantry staples. Cleaning items. Toilet paper! And possibly a sewing machine 🙂

  256. Brittany December 4, 2013 at 9:02 am #

    I don’t know what I would do with $1000 (so many necessities and even more wants!) but I definitely would be thankful for it!!

  257. Amanda December 4, 2013 at 9:02 am #

    Would love the chance to win!!! Thank you so much!

  258. Mickey December 4, 2013 at 9:03 am #

    since I lost my job last year, I would use it to totally go over board with gift for family and friends 🙂

  259. Lauren Clemens December 4, 2013 at 9:03 am #

    Groceries!! It’s been a rough month money wise and my pantry needs restocking!
    This would be such a blessing!

  260. Lynn December 4, 2013 at 9:05 am #

    I would replace all my cookwear and cooking utensils. Fingers crossed!

  261. Christie December 4, 2013 at 9:06 am #

    I would finally have a real bridal set!!

  262. Amber Asbill December 4, 2013 at 9:07 am #

    I would use it on my husband. He works very hard do I can stay home and it feels odd buying him gifts with his money. I used to work, and back then, it didn’t feel weird at all. He deserves something good!!

  263. AnnMarie December 4, 2013 at 9:07 am #

    I would use it to stock up on things that we normally couldn’t afford to stock up on: coconut oil, good sea salt, coconut flour, coconut palm sugar, vanilla beans, etc.

  264. Dawn December 4, 2013 at 9:07 am #

    What would I do with a $1K Amazon gift cared? I would buy one thing on my wish list. Then I would stock up on food and toys for the family’s I help during the holiday.

  265. Karyn Rosebrook December 4, 2013 at 9:07 am #

    Can I buy car repairs with it? Hmm, then Christmas it is!

  266. Tia December 4, 2013 at 9:09 am #

    WOW, well considering my hubby got laid off a few weeks ago and the few kids I was watching in my day home are done we could defiantly use this for A LOT! We have no money till January! I would most likely take a few hundred and buy gifts for random people and drop them off at their doors, its our way of doing ding dong ditch! 🙂 Pretty bummed we cant do it this year 🙁 also a food processor would be awesome! mine is dying! 😛

  267. David Watson December 4, 2013 at 9:09 am #

    Xmas shopping and tools to build a tree house for my kids

  268. Lucia S December 4, 2013 at 9:09 am #

    Well Fed 2, a Vitamix, and a high quality digital camera. Planning on starting our family next year, so the camera would be for capturing all the memories!

  269. Candra December 4, 2013 at 9:10 am #

    I would use it to finally buy a Berkey water filter and then replace all the toxic plastic items and pans left in my kitchen. $1000 could help remove a lot of poisons around here!

  270. bethany December 4, 2013 at 9:11 am #

    This is amazing.. bless you

  271. Jillian hamm December 4, 2013 at 9:11 am #

    I Would move some Christmas gifts for my kids and some things we need for our uncoming move.

  272. Beth B. December 4, 2013 at 9:13 am #

    I’d probably use a bit to splurge on expanding my kitchen tools for all the cooking I’m doing at home now! And the rest would allow me to buy uniforms for my daughter for school!

  273. Kimberley Craig December 4, 2013 at 9:13 am #

    I would use the gift card to buy a vitamix because its SO awesome and I’d love one.
    The rest of the gift card, I would gift to my MIL as she is having a very lean December and doesn’t have money to buy her grandbabies gifts.

  274. sandie December 4, 2013 at 9:13 am #

    Wow! I would do some crazy dreaming then bounce back into reality get some list ideas from my five kids and husband and plan random and fun surprises throughout the year. And lots of spoilment. And probably lots of supplements, and a really good juicer.

  275. Mary December 4, 2013 at 9:14 am #

    I’d start by purchasing a Vitamix 🙂

  276. Catrina Evans December 4, 2013 at 9:14 am #

    Well, I am new to the foodie world, and I would use the gift card to buy cod liver oils and coconut oil… And all of the wonderful things I have seen all of you inspiring ladies post. My husband gets a new job in January so right now we are really tight on money, and I am doing your “Paleo on a budget”! You have inspired me beyond words Paleo Momma!!! Some day want my own goat and chickens too!!! After having my 3rd son last year I was diagnosed with Mild Congestive Heart Failure and only at 24!!! I started doing my research, and how the food I was eating could be affecting my body! But thanks to you, some others like you, and my weight loss surgeon I have already almost dropped 100 pounds in less than 6 months! Also, I have reversed some of the heart failure, and I am confident I will reverse it completely! Me getting healthy for my children is my number one goal, and teaching my children about healthy food is my second goal! Even if I don’t win I want to say keep doing what you are doing! Because it is making a difference!!! Thank you!

  277. HeidiDk December 4, 2013 at 9:14 am #

    Hard to say maybe a new cookware set

  278. Cheryl R December 4, 2013 at 9:14 am #

    I would use it to get tablets for my kids. It’s what they want more than anything!

  279. Heidi December 4, 2013 at 9:15 am #

    I would be able to spoil my children for Christmas – “Santa” has never been able to give my kids all of the things that they really want which is disappointing for them and breaks my heart. It would truly be a blessing. Thank you for this opportunity. Happy Holidays!

  280. Becky December 4, 2013 at 9:15 am #

    Thank you for being so generous!

  281. Pam December 4, 2013 at 9:16 am #

    Such an amazing gift! First of all thank you for the opportunity!

    I would by gifts for my boys. Then get a few gifts and/or groceries for some of the families I know that are in need. And if there was any leftover, I would get a few of our grocery staples to help buffer out our grocery budget.

  283. Jenna Alstad December 4, 2013 at 9:19 am #

    i would get my husband a descent pair of sunglasses and invest the rest in our farm. ee always need something…we just kicked of our dream of having an organic farm. i stick a recipe in the farm boxes each week and archive them on the website thebackfortyfarm.net 🙂

  284. Katie Sullivan December 4, 2013 at 9:19 am #

    My parents are in the process of opening a new business, so I would definitely get them some of the things they need. Or I would get new tires. I wonder if Amazon even sells tires? :-). Either way, thanks for offering your fans such a great giveaway!

  285. Krista December 4, 2013 at 9:19 am #

    Wow!! I’d finally buy multiple copies of all the books I give away all the time…

  293. Pure Romance By Lorii December 4, 2013 at 9:26 am #

    I would give my family an amazing Christmas! Especially my mom. She always gives myself and my kids a great Christmas and rarely does anything for herself, and I have never been able to do for her even half of what she does for me. I would love to turn the tables this year and do something truly surprising and wonderful for her!

  294. Sharee December 4, 2013 at 9:26 am #

  299. Angel December 4, 2013 at 9:29 am #

    If I was to be the lucky recipient, I would buy my hubby new work shoes, workout clothes and crossfit shoes. He works 60 hours plus a week so I can stay home with our kids. He is an amazing man and he always puts us first. He deserves to be spoiled.

  300. Ellen Visser December 4, 2013 at 9:30 am #

    I would buy books for my grandchildren, and healthy foods, and things for Christmas for the family, that help us all be better educated about food, health, lifestyle, living the best we can in a toxic world!

  301. Megan December 4, 2013 at 9:30 am #

    Winning this would be a miracle. I would buy my two boys what is on their Christmas list (which isn’t much).

  302. Demetra Kawa December 4, 2013 at 9:31 am #

    Pick Me!! I love you and I love Amazon!!! 🙂

  303. Allison December 4, 2013 at 9:31 am #

    I would use it to give to others during this holiday season.

  304. Jennifer December 4, 2013 at 9:33 am #

    Lots of good healthy food stuff you can’t buy in town, like yummy coconut oil!! Also a nice gift for my mother-in-law that watches our kids whenever we ask.

  305. Jessica N December 4, 2013 at 9:33 am #

    I would use it for Christmas and groceries.

  306. Nancy Tindall December 4, 2013 at 9:33 am #

    This would really help to get cought back up after Christmas, with a little left to do something for myself or hubby. Ive really been wanting chicks in the spring.

  307. Janet K-F December 4, 2013 at 9:35 am #

    Buy food, kitchen gadgets, & books!

  308. Victoria December 4, 2013 at 9:38 am #

    I will give it to my husband’s family of 11 adopted kids still living at home {19 all together – first generation gone – 19th child they are in the process of adopting}. Foster/adopt ministry many with special needs coming from broken homes. They moved out to east Texas a couple of years ago from the Dallas area to give these kids a better life on a farm. It is what they always wanted, so they bought over 100 acres and now raise organic pastured raised meats available to the public. Their farm is HindsFeet Farm. They’ve really done an amazing job with these kids growing up in a Christian environment and having this farm means the world to them. That is how they are supporting themselves with the farm, they really don’t have much money despite their growing success, it’s still starting out and difficult for them and often hear of how they are struggling and need us to help them out financially. I would give them the $1000 to make this an amazing Christmas for them. They deserve it so much, for all the work they do not just on the farm but for others. They have so much going on yet they continue to volunteer their time to help care for those in need. They’ve done so much for everyone around them, including me and my family. I would love to give this to them and help make this Christmas one they will never forget. I can’t even describe how much of a blessing this would be. They’re truly one amazing family who gives everything they got and asks nothing in return, except love.

  309. Heather Hinson December 4, 2013 at 9:38 am #

    I will likely use the money to buy gifts for my husband, kids and four grandchildren, and maybe a new blender. 🙂

  310. Laurie December 4, 2013 at 9:38 am #

    I’d buy Christmas presents for my family and kitchen gadgets for me with whatever was left over. And cloth diapers for my babies!

  311. Leslie T December 4, 2013 at 9:40 am #

  312. Jeanne Anson December 4, 2013 at 9:42 am #

    I would love to buy a good juicer and some much needed items for my home.

  313. Sylvia December 4, 2013 at 9:43 am #

    I’ll probably use half on new kitchen gadgets and the other half things to give to the local community.

  314. Andrea December 4, 2013 at 9:43 am #

    I would use the gift card to buy some Christmas for the kids and family and round out my kitchen needs to better feed my family healthy.

  315. Debra December 4, 2013 at 9:43 am #

  316. Katie Davis December 4, 2013 at 9:44 am #

    We just had our 2nd baby and we are both back to work….needless to say, things are tight! We would use the money towards bills and maybe some Xmas presents!! What a wonderful gift you are providing for someone!!!

  317. Corinne December 4, 2013 at 9:44 am #

    I would buy groceries.

  318. Erica December 4, 2013 at 9:47 am #

    I would get a dining room set so we can start having family dinners at the the table and not the couch. We have a baby girl due in March 2014 and I would start purchasing things to get ready for her arrival. I would get her a crib, dresser, breast pump, nursing pads, and crib bedding set. I would start stocking up on diapers and wipes. I would buy my 15 month old son news books and toys. There is so much lol!! I would get a new camera and a kitchaid stand mixer to make baking a lot easier for me. I would also get new pots and pans.

  319. Sheila December 4, 2013 at 9:47 am #

    I would buy bedding for my kids so they have nice warm beds that they are proud of.

  320. Melissa December 4, 2013 at 9:48 am #

    My hubby has been out of work for a year now. I would use it towards Christmas gifts for us and our family!

    I would buy Christmas gifts for my family!

  322. Jamie December 4, 2013 at 9:49 am #

    If I were to win the gift card, I would give my 4 kiddos a fantastic Christmas, and fill my kitchen with all the healthy food that I try to buy, and sometimes am unable to buy, for my family.

  323. Christina Gayner December 4, 2013 at 9:50 am #

    What wouldn’t I be able to get….amazon has everything!

  328. Lauren December 4, 2013 at 9:54 am #

    Oohh! I love Amazon! $1000 would be so great for stocking up on essentials and fun things, too 🙂

  329. Cathy December 4, 2013 at 9:55 am #

    I have a huge wish list of stuff that I drool over. I think I’d be able to get just about everything on that list and it would take care of myself, my husband, my kids, my nieces, etc….. Something for everyone:)

  330. Lydia December 4, 2013 at 9:56 am #

    I would use it to make my family’s christmas a little brighter by taking us on a trip to a bigger city in January to just spend a few days together. My husband has been out-of-town for the past 5 weeks and hasn’t seen myself or our 2yearold daughter more than a few times for a few hours.

  331. Jennifer December 4, 2013 at 9:56 am #

    I would use the 33/33/33 rule. Spend 33% on myself (probably kiddos), save 33% and donate 33%. I’d love to support a family or 2 during Christmas and this would be the best way how! Thanks!!

  332. Jolene Shepert December 4, 2013 at 9:57 am #

    I would use the money if I won to get all the kitchen tool I need to make dealing with my daughter’s allergies easier

    The man of my dreams just proposed to me on Friday so we would use the gift card to get what we need for the wedding. It would make our wedding to be able to have some of the stuff paid for without using our budget. So excited about this giveaway!!

  336. Renee Bertola December 4, 2013 at 10:02 am #

    I will spend it on my family, but also give some gifts to the charity one simple wish. Maybe a fitbit for me too!

  337. Michelle December 4, 2013 at 10:02 am #

    Nice!! I would spend some, save some and share some! Amazon wish list is getting longer and longer ha!

  338. Jessica December 4, 2013 at 10:04 am #

    Give my family an amazing christmas

  339. Michelle December 4, 2013 at 10:07 am #

    I would use it to stock my kitchen! Hoping Santa brings me a food processor and other gadgets to make eating real food more convenient, but if not, I would purchase those items plus grass fed gelatin and other supplements that I can not purchase locally. Thank you for the opportunity 🙂

  340. Veronica December 4, 2013 at 10:08 am #

    With the gift card, I would purchase supplies for my planned community garden spaces for next year, which I will use not only to feed my family, but families in my area that don’t have much in the way of food. I will also use it to buy a couple of small gifts for all of the kids (4 boys), as well as for some families here in Ann Arbor, MI, that have nothing for Christmas!

  341. Janelle December 4, 2013 at 10:08 am #

    I’d be able to afford a nice Christmas for my family.

  342. Alehson Moore December 4, 2013 at 10:08 am #

  344. Ashlee December 4, 2013 at 10:09 am #

    I would buy a blender and use the rest to travel to Rome with my husband for a cooking class 🙂

  345. Stephanie December 4, 2013 at 10:09 am #

    What a great giveaway! If I won the moolah, I would use it to buy books and supplies for the upcoming semester of school (I’m studying business management), and some kitchen supplies in support of my at home baking business and food blog.

    Thanks again!
    Stephanie

  346. Jacinda Davis December 4, 2013 at 10:09 am #

    I personally probably have enough ‘stuff’, but it would be amazing to pick a few more angels off the angel tree & give as many nice Christmases as I can… thanks for the awesome giveaway… 🙂

  347. Rebecca Jeanne December 4, 2013 at 10:11 am #

    I would buy my husband his whole wish list! What an awesome giveaway!!

  349. Ariel Brown December 4, 2013 at 10:15 am #

    My husband and I close on our new home on the 20th! I would use this gift to paint, decorate, and fill our new home!

  350. Kimberly Jones December 4, 2013 at 10:17 am #

    I just started making the homemade items and am giving this stuff away to my family at Christmas. If I won the gift card, I’d probably get more items to create product for an Etsy shop. I’m really enjoying tweaking recipes into my own creations! Thanks for the opportunity.

  351. Star-Shine Cheng December 4, 2013 at 10:18 am #

    I would buy a new refrigerator and use the remaining amount to stock up on mason jars and pantry supplies.

    Hi Jackie,

    I discovered your blog through Pintrest a few days ago and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. It has increased my quality of life in just a few days!! I love your recipes and budget help, it opened my eyes so much! So if i won this giftcard I’d use it to start my collection of essential oils and homesteading materials (almond oil, castile soap,etc.) and most likely make my new year as natural as possible 🙂

    Happy Blogging!!

    Lauren

  353. Megan Van Fleet December 4, 2013 at 10:23 am #

    I would use it to buy a freezer for all of the homemade meals I’ve made and don’t have room to store. I’d also get a food dehydrator because I’ve always wanted one! Thank you for this awesome giveaway!!

  354. Liz Seamon December 4, 2013 at 10:25 am #

    I would start buying some of the products I see you and the other bloggers talking about. Otherwise, I couldn’t afford them! Thank you, Merry Christmas

  355. Deanna December 4, 2013 at 10:26 am #

    Books, games, toys, so many things to choose from. I would be able to get the kids some of the things on their lists that I would not otherwise be able to

  356. michelle burnett December 4, 2013 at 10:31 am #

    I’d use it to buy vocal recording equipment!

  357. Sydni M December 4, 2013 at 10:31 am #

    There are so many kitchen items I could buy!

  358. Katie t December 4, 2013 at 10:31 am #

    I subscribed and liked 🙂 I would get gifts for my family of things they and I need!

  359. Coreen Baldridge December 4, 2013 at 10:34 am #

    This would allow us to have piece of mind this holiday season.

  360. Jessica December 4, 2013 at 10:35 am #

    We would use an amazon gift card to stock up on paleo goods, kitchen appliances, paleo cookbooks for ourselves and loved ones, gifts. The possibilities are endless! A $1,000 goes a long way!

  361. Amy December 4, 2013 at 10:37 am #

    Definitely a Blendtec or Vitamix! After that, who knows? Maybe a tablet.

  362. Rebecca Reine December 4, 2013 at 10:37 am #

    We just moved to a new state so money is tight. Honestly, I don’t know how we’ll give Christmas presents this year. God will provide though.
    I’d use the gift card for Christmas. For diapers. Probably to stock up on some grocery items. There are several things we’d like to buy to decorate the new house.

  363. Brianna dirks December 4, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    I would buy my mom a dehydrator…. She needs one desperately!

  364. Michaela December 4, 2013 at 10:39 am #

    I will stock up on all my Amazon subscribe and save items that make it so much easier to eat healthy/go paleo!!

  365. Bridget December 4, 2013 at 10:40 am #

    I’d get Tegu blocks and art supplies for my daughter’s 2nd Christmas and a much needed cookware set!

  366. Kim Howell December 4, 2013 at 10:40 am #

    Wow I would love to win! I would share with the family…. Great idea Jackie. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you and your family.
    Kim

  367. Michelle December 4, 2013 at 10:42 am #

    Hello Paleo Momma,
    We have 4 kids and we are as Paleo and holistic as possible. Money has been tight so I’d use the $ to buy the kids winter clothes. It’s getting cold here. Thanks for all your great recipes and holistic info on your site.
    Love and blessings ❤️❤️

  368. Sarah December 4, 2013 at 10:45 am #

    I’d use it to stock my cupboards with some paleo staples and spoil my kids at bit too.

  369. Tara Pantera December 4, 2013 at 10:45 am #

    I would finally buy all of the ingredients to make my homemade gifts…for deoderant, body butter, etc. 😀

  370. Grace December 4, 2013 at 10:46 am #

    Christmas gifts for my kiddos!!!

  371. Kelbi December 4, 2013 at 10:48 am #

    Sounds like an amazing way to further implement a healthy lifestyle for my 1 yo & my 41 yo!!!

  372. Andrea Bravo Balado December 4, 2013 at 10:49 am #

    What an awesome giveaway!! With all that money I could stock up my kitchen with useful cookware like a good food processor, a slow cooker, cook books, maybe some paleo treats and last but not least, I’d buy present for my beloved family and boyfriend 🙂

  373. Dana Olliver December 4, 2013 at 10:50 am #

    Oh gosh! I would love this! I am a newly wed and there are so many items we could buy to start our life together! 🙂

  374. Nicole December 4, 2013 at 10:51 am #

    I would buy a food dehydrator and then spend the rest in my son. He’s in need of clothes! He’s 9 months old but already wearing 18 months.

  375. Krista Stewart December 4, 2013 at 10:51 am #

    I LOVE Amazon! I would buy my husband a couple gifts for his wine-making station for our 25th anniversary in January. I would also buy a couple kitchen gadgets to help prepare healthy foods (spiral cutter, new juicer, and cutting boards). I would buy some bath salts, bath rugs, bath towels. I would also buy sheets, a new duvet, and duvet cover for our bed. Any money left over would be used to stock up on herbs, nuts, seeds, and food items that I can’t find in our little mountain community (chia seeds, various oils, quinoa, etc.)

  376. Felicia Inman December 4, 2013 at 10:52 am #

    I would use the money to purchase a slide set for my little one to play on outside. He loves slides, but they’re so dang expensive. :):) Love the blog.

  377. Rebecca December 4, 2013 at 10:52 am #

    I love Amazon! I would use it for gifts for my daughter, mother and sister. Kitchen gadgets for myself.

  378. Samantha December 4, 2013 at 10:53 am #

    I would use this to purchase Christmas gifts for not only my son but my three nieces and nephews who don’t have much. I’d also use a little on buying a few new Paleo cookbooks. 🙂

  379. Traci Burnett December 4, 2013 at 10:56 am #

    To be honest id buy christmas presents for my 2 year old. I am the only income and cant afford christmas. This would be a miracle for me I could get a tree, food, gifts for him.

  380. Antonella Bly December 4, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    I would probably use it to have a weekend getaway with my husband: we have been struggling and need to reconnect as friends and have some fun: we have not had more than a couple of hours alone without kids in almost 6 years.

  381. Jen ray December 4, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    If I won this gift I would bout a kindle fire for my son who is Dyslexic because the kindle will read a book out loud. I would buy some cast iron pans for cooking, paleo cookbooks, and find out what books my sons teacher would like to have and get them
    Thank you!

  382. Dee Fedor December 4, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    I would give it to my wonderful daughter who took us in when her dad had a BAD stroke and we lost our house.

  383. Trina December 4, 2013 at 11:01 am #

    I would buy a much needed pressure cooker and new baking pans for myself then use the rest of the money to teach my son the joy of giving back. We would buy and deliver random gifts for people in need.

  384. Jan Rose December 4, 2013 at 11:03 am #

    I would use $1000 to buy all the organic meat I can’t afford now!

  385. Sarah Marcum December 4, 2013 at 11:04 am #

    If I won $1,000 gift card, I would use it to buy Christmas presents for my husband. In 10 years, we’ve never bought each other presents. Thanks!

  386. Michelle December 4, 2013 at 11:05 am #

    So many things could be bought, healthy food, books, needed kids items, and fun stuff!

  387. Liza December 4, 2013 at 11:06 am #

    I would stock my kitchen with fun extras for the paleo lifestyle!

  388. Amber Picota December 4, 2013 at 11:06 am #

    If I win I will use the $1000 to buy Christmas presents.

  389. Charity Sarazin December 4, 2013 at 11:07 am #

    I would use it to do some more Christmas shopping for my kids.

  390. nicole December 4, 2013 at 11:10 am #

    I would throw a paleo party or buy some much deserved gifts for friends and family for Christmas!

  391. Rula December 4, 2013 at 11:12 am #

    I would buy a few things that are on my wish list and donate the rest.

  392. Tiffany M Bastedo December 4, 2013 at 11:13 am #

    Oh wow! I know I would buy a few staples for our household but our community food bank and community diaper bank needs staples more than we do, so I know I would shop around for some really good things to donate. Thanks for the opportunity!

  393. Sara December 4, 2013 at 11:13 am #

    I have a giant Amazon wish list, that grows by the day! This prize would take care of a big chunk of it 😉

  394. Alice December 4, 2013 at 11:14 am #

    I would buy something for my husband and pay on debt.

  395. Gina December 4, 2013 at 11:15 am #

    I would use it to give someone less fortunate than me a great Christmas!!

  396. Samantha December 4, 2013 at 11:16 am #

    I would go Christmas shopping for my entire family!!

  397. Samantha December 4, 2013 at 11:17 am #

    I would go Christmas shopping for my entire family as well as buy yummy nutritious goods!

  398. Meag O December 4, 2013 at 11:17 am #

    I would buy my husband his dream grill, the Traeger. He just returned from deployment and I would love to surprise him with an amazing gift.

  399. Lori December 4, 2013 at 11:17 am #

    I would get a bunch of the cookware I need…blender, cookware, mixer, oh yes.

  400. Heather Huber Lai December 4, 2013 at 11:18 am #

    My husband and I just closed on our homestead and take possession in January. I would buy a riding mower or a hen house and poulets to start raising layers and broilers.

  401. Jessica December 4, 2013 at 11:19 am #

    Buy gifts for my family

  402. Melody Filonczuk December 4, 2013 at 11:19 am #

    I would use this to prepare for our fourth baby coming May 2014, and to pay off more debt sooner, so we can start saving for a BIGGER home! We are bursting at the seams already! 🙂

  403. lindsay December 4, 2013 at 11:21 am #

    With a $1000 gift card, I would probably buy clothes for my kids and spend a little bit on food from azure standard. Or maybe I would buy a bunch of gifts for people on our gift list 🙂

  404. deneen December 4, 2013 at 11:22 am #

    I would start with a new KitchenAid Mixer – the big honkin’ one, with all the bells & whistles. And then stock up my pantry with all kinds of goodies….eyes glazing over just thinking about it..

  405. Mandy Casey December 4, 2013 at 11:23 am #

    I would get storage stuff. For the playroom, garage, closet. I would love to have our clutter out of sight!

  406. Shaunti December 4, 2013 at 11:25 am #

    I would buy my kids a really nice trampoline. They both do gymnastics and could use it to practice 🙂 Thanks!!1

  407. lyn December 4, 2013 at 11:28 am #

    We are PCS-ing a couple days after Christmas, so I think we would use it to buy our kiddos some lovely Christmas presents when we get to Florida that I wasn’t able to buy while at our current station, and the rest towards things for our lovely new home…oh and I would definitely buy one of those spiral slicers!!! 😀

  408. Angela Johnson December 4, 2013 at 11:28 am #

    Make Christmas amazing for my family!

  409. Shannon December 4, 2013 at 11:28 am #

    I would finally buy all that stuff that sits in my wish list 🙂

  410. Sarah December 4, 2013 at 11:29 am #

    I would love to pick up some last minute Christmas gifts and some kitchen goodies for my husband and I!

  411. Jessica b December 4, 2013 at 11:29 am #

    I would buy food products, books, and a kitchen utensil or two. So exciting! Thanks for this amazing offer!

  412. Andrea December 4, 2013 at 11:30 am #

    I would use it for Christmas presents! As well as some workout equipment and clothes for me. (: Okay, and dark chocolate.

  413. Suann December 4, 2013 at 11:31 am #

    I would use this $$$ to purchase thing to help better organize my home and kitchen and kitchen supplies to help make eating clean more appealing to my munchkins.

  414. Danielle Lambers December 4, 2013 at 11:33 am #

    My husband works very hard to support our family and I would spoil him spending most of the money on him but saving a portion to get our daughter something special too!

  415. Karolina December 4, 2013 at 11:33 am #

    If I win I will buy books on how to write cover letter and do well on job interviews (I am so driven but breaking into todays job market is not easy!)

  416. Kristyan W December 4, 2013 at 11:34 am #

    Food, clothes for my growing kiddos, surprise gifts for loved ones…. Amazon rocks!! Thanks for offering an amazing giveaway!

  417. Rachael December 4, 2013 at 11:36 am #

    Some new cookbooks and cast iron pans to start 🙂

  418. Lisa Owens December 4, 2013 at 11:37 am #

    I have been eyeing an Excalibur dehydrator and a kitchen aid for years!

  419. Christa King December 4, 2013 at 11:39 am #

    Oh the possibilities! Cast Iron set, books for my little girl, baking items for my lactation cookie business, hoover floormate vacuum, add to my cloth diaper stash, artwork, toys, rug for the MBR….

  420. Joan Gamble December 4, 2013 at 11:39 am #

    I would buy a new sofa ! 🙂

  421. Debbie December 4, 2013 at 11:40 am #

    I would buy some kitchen gadgets to make my cooking easier 🙂 because I’m in the kitchen all the time with my kids and I have food allergies & SIBO. It would be a blessing!

  422. Darylann December 4, 2013 at 11:40 am #

    I would use this for Christmas!

  423. Kelly Galler December 4, 2013 at 11:43 am #

    Buy a Vitamix for the kitchen and a new camera. Love all the possibilities that the vitamin would provide for feeding my family.

  424. Melissa December 4, 2013 at 11:45 am #

    I’d purchase Himilayan Salt Lamps for my house, since we’ve been wanting them for sometime now. I also run a non profit group & we’re doing Christmas for the kids in there, so this would help out with that cost Tremendously! :).. I’m also interested in purchasing healthy items, as we just went all natural food consumption in my home! What a blessing this money would be for many of things. I couldn’t even name everything I’d do with it 🙂

  425. Debbie S. December 4, 2013 at 11:47 am #

    I would buy some kitchen gadgets to make my cooking easier 🙂 because I’m in the kitchen all the time with my kids and I have food allergies & SIBO. It would be a blessing!

  426. Teresa Barger December 4, 2013 at 11:48 am #

    I would buy a new treadmill for my husband. He has such a hard time getting out to work out because he is so busy with work and having one in the house would be an excellent way for him to get his daily exercise in!

  427. Amanda December 4, 2013 at 11:49 am #

    Thank you for this opportunity! What a blessing! I would buy my children some much needed essential items and bless another family with the same.

  428. Faye December 4, 2013 at 11:52 am #

    I need a food processor or a Vitamix or something! Also would like to get some more toys for ‘Toys for Tots’

  429. Amanda December 4, 2013 at 11:55 am #

    My hubby is 100% disabled vet and with me being his caregiver, we have focused our money on bills more than Christmas. I’d buy a few things for our kids and then share the gift with other families in a similar position.

  430. KEverett December 4, 2013 at 11:55 am #

    Without a doubt, it’s the season of giving. This would be some pretty awesome giving!!

  431. Amy December 4, 2013 at 11:56 am #

    I would get a high powered blender, possibly a food dehydrator or a new tv!

  432. Sharon Tinin December 4, 2013 at 11:59 am #

    This year has been really tough. I take care of my mom who is 91 and she recently fell and fractured her back. I have not been able to work, so money is tight. There will be no gifts this year. If I was to be lucky enough to win this, first off I would get Christmas dinner, then I would get something for my three sons and their families (especially the grandkids), help out my husband (who I am separated from) with getting his truck fixed and the rest I would donate to the survivors of the recent tornadoes in Central Illinois, and to the volunteers who are so tirelessly and selflessly giving of their time and money to help.

  433. Amy December 4, 2013 at 12:06 pm #

    I would use the gift card for Christmas gifts and school books!

  434. candi December 4, 2013 at 12:06 pm #

    We would buy gifts for our family, this would be a huge blessing!

  435. Sandy m. December 4, 2013 at 12:08 pm #

    I have 6 children this would help a lot with Christmas and everyday!

  436. Jaime Williams December 4, 2013 at 12:08 pm #

    There are so many things we can do with this card. Gifts for those less fortunate, a little help for us at this time of the year, help for others who can’t afford much for the holidays. We really believe in giving back and not only will this help us a little, but can impact so many!

  437. Socks December 4, 2013 at 12:10 pm #

    Buy baby stuff!

  438. Tanya Dennett December 4, 2013 at 12:19 pm #

    I’m very fortunate this yesr to have what I need.
    I’m not 100 percent sure what I would do but I would use it to give back. Buy baby things for a shelter. Help a school tht needs kitchen items. Baby and kuds toys to a daycare.

    Thank you for this chance!

  439. Bethany K December 4, 2013 at 12:21 pm #

    Books and pantry staples and cooking toys oh my! I do so much of my shopping from Amazon!

  440. Jessi December 4, 2013 at 12:24 pm #

    What a generous and amazing gift!
    I am going back to school for a degree in Lactation Consultation so I would use the gift card to purchase the long list of textbooks needed!

  441. Elizabeth Moreison December 4, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

    Eeeeeek I would definitely use this to buy new cookware, like stainless steel or copper pans :))

  442. Donna December 4, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

    WOW, I could do so much with $1000!!! I would purchase a few christmas gifts for my family, then use the rest to help out a dear friend that is going through a terrible divorce, losing almost everything and struggling.

  443. Amanda December 4, 2013 at 12:27 pm #

    I am pretty certain that I would get this KitchenAid mixer in Nickle Pearl…
    http://www.amazon.com/KitchenAid-KP26M1PSL-Professional-Series-6-Quart/dp/B005Z2L3L8/ref=sr_1_4?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1386177447&sr=1-4&keywords=kitchenaid+stand+mixer
    AND
    This Vitamix along with the dry blade attachment…
    http://www.amazon.com/Vitamix-1363-Professional-Series-Platinum/dp/B000RRKQKA/ref=sr_1_4?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1386177619&sr=1-4&keywords=Vitamix

    This would be a Christmas gift for me AND my family since they will benefit from all the yummy & healthy things I could make. 😉

    p.s… I tried to subscribe to CHEESESLAVE and got this Feedburner message twice… “The publisher has deactivated subscriptions by email”. And their page is the only one that I don’t see this giveaway mentioned on.

    PRAYING with all of my heart that I win. I want a Vitamix & KitchenAid SOOOOO much! Thanks for the opportunity!

  444. Nichole December 4, 2013 at 12:27 pm #

    This is so exciting! I love Amazon, and I have three kids 5 and under, so I’d put it to good use. I manage multiple food allergies, so I’d probably buy some safe food, toys and goodies for the kids, and treats for me like a Le Creuset, new yoga pants, paleo cookbooks, and an All Clad slowcooker!

  445. Lita Wells December 4, 2013 at 12:29 pm #

    I would use the money to pay off dr bills. Thank you for the chance to win!

  446. Kristen December 4, 2013 at 12:30 pm #

    If I won I would use for a dehydrator maybe some kitchen supplies and an entry way table. Also maybe some homeschool preschool supplies and supplies to make my own cleaners and beauty products!! Awesome giveaway!!

  447. Julie December 4, 2013 at 12:34 pm #

    iPhones for the whole family!

  448. Ericka M December 4, 2013 at 12:34 pm #

    I will treat my 4 year old daughter and my husband to an awesome Christmas. I really could use this card as I have not worked this year and it breaks my heart that I can’t do anything for my family. They fill my life with joy and I just want to be able to thank them. With me being visually impaired I am so thankful for an awesome husband who accepts me and I want to show my appreciation.

  449. Nonnie December 4, 2013 at 12:36 pm #

    New snowshoes for the entire family!

  450. Susan December 4, 2013 at 12:36 pm #

    I would save it to use throughout the year on things like bulk food, essential oils, kitchen products 🙂

  451. Marcelina December 4, 2013 at 12:37 pm #

    Since the drawing is too late for Christmas I am going to be selfish and use it on me. I need new recipe books, cookware, bakeware, blender, food processor, veggie spiral slicer, and much more. Thank you for such an awesome gift. You will make someone extremely happy.

  452. Caitlin December 4, 2013 at 12:41 pm #

    Groceries and household goods – every penny counts right now.

  453. Amy Smith December 4, 2013 at 12:50 pm #

    I would be able to buy Christmas gifts for my kiddos and all 7 of my nieces and nephews instead of one gift to share! I would also be able to buy some kitchen gadgets to donate to my friends gluten free baking business!

  454. becky hoffman December 4, 2013 at 12:53 pm #

    I need a new washer and dryer! I’m sure I could find one with free shipping!

  455. Teresa December 4, 2013 at 12:53 pm #

    I would be very thankful to win. I would use it to support my children.

  456. Anna December 4, 2013 at 12:54 pm #

    I’d probably get a radial arm saw… I need some new shelves 😉

  457. Dennis December 4, 2013 at 1:00 pm #

    I would use the $1000 to buy gifts for all my friends and family. If any money was left I would buy myself the list of things I have in my amazon wishlist, most items are what I buy in order to feed my Paleo cooking needs.

  458. Penney Do December 4, 2013 at 1:02 pm #

    I would use most of it to support my paleo habits 😉

  459. Sandra December 4, 2013 at 1:03 pm #

    I would buy Christmas presents for my family and friends! I would also buy winter gear and book shelves!
    🙂

  460. Anne Allen December 4, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

    Use it for gifts and for a few items on my wishlists, couple of cookbooks i have been really wanting!

  461. Kary Blair December 4, 2013 at 1:11 pm #

    I would use the Amazon gift card to continue buying the items my kids need everyday. I love Amazon, and shop their website daily!!

  462. Lanna December 4, 2013 at 1:12 pm #

    I’d probably get a few things for my hubby and maybe even some Lego/school stuff for the kids (yes, I can turn just about anything into a Lego school lesson given enough time to think about it).

  463. Melinda Leewis December 4, 2013 at 1:23 pm #

    This would be awesome!!

  464. angela b December 4, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

    Wow, I dont even have an answer. I’d likely save it to ensure I’d spend it slowly & wisely. Maybe buy my sister a nice wedding gift for her wedding in July.

  465. Charis Yoder December 4, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

    If I won the $1,000 gift card I would first tithe $100 to church. Then, I’d buy my hubby some bagpipes, because he’s always wanted to learn them. Next, I’d stock up on coconut oil, flour, and manna!! Then, buy a thing or two for our 4 kiddos!

  466. Sabrina December 4, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

    I would use the gift card to buy my kiddos Christmas gifts!

  467. Jill December 4, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    I would put the money in my son’s education fund.

  468. Tara Eastman December 4, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    I would use some of on Christmas and the rest I would spend on items to support a healthier lifestyle, such as a Vitamix or Blendtec mixer, almond flour, cocount flour, etc.

    I would love to win this!!! What an awesome Christmas we would have. I would use the $ to get furnishings for our basement that we are trying to redo after we had some water back-up damage. We’d like to get an air hockey table and basketball hoop for the kids and their friends to use!

  470. melody brown December 4, 2013 at 1:34 pm #

    I would buy a food processor, and two salt rock lamps…and then…buy stuff to bless people with.

  471. Julie December 4, 2013 at 1:39 pm #

    I would spend it on Christmas presents for my family!

  472. Leanne December 4, 2013 at 1:40 pm #

    If I win, I would use the $1000 to go towards the purchase of a Vitamix Blender as well as filling my kitchen with organic/paleo friendly foods. My daughter is tube-fed and is showing signs of intolerance to her commercial food, which I’ve just found out is made from GMO products!

  473. Valerie December 4, 2013 at 1:44 pm #

  478. Sarah December 4, 2013 at 1:58 pm #

    I would buy my sons Sam & Ben DJ equipment. They need it to keep working and Amazon has great sales. If you have a Soundcloud account or Youtube you can hear some…it’s electronic mostly…just type in OceanRae. I want them to succeed at something they love instead of living a life of uncertainty in something they don’t.

  479. MIchelle Gerteisen December 4, 2013 at 1:59 pm #

    I’d get all the books sitting on my amazon wishlist that I haven’t been able to afford buying.

  480. Jenna December 4, 2013 at 1:59 pm #

  483. Brittnee December 4, 2013 at 2:04 pm #

    I would LOVE to use this to pay off debt (go Dave Ramsey!) but since that won’t work on amazon…I would love to buy some food storage, and maybe splurge on a good mixer! 🙂

  484. Lisa December 4, 2013 at 2:07 pm #

    I would use it to furnish my soon to be new apartment, since leaving a 20 year marriage, and starting over. Exciting!

  485. Monica December 4, 2013 at 2:12 pm #

  486. Steve December 4, 2013 at 2:12 pm #

    Christmas Present

  487. Addie December 4, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOO many things I would get. Mostly, I need gear for the endurance competitions I’m competing in next year like a ruck, sandbags… I need more workout gear. A new food processor, because I killed mine trying to make coconut butter. Whoops. I’d get some clothes for my kids… single mom with a 4 and 5 year old… those boys put holes in pants almost DAILY! Sigh.

  488. Kimberly Baham December 4, 2013 at 2:15 pm #

    Christmas gifts…then some cookbooks and kitchen necessities to help me in my transition to a paleo/primal way of life.

  489. haley mcmanus December 4, 2013 at 2:20 pm #

    If I won, I would definitely get a new treadmill!

  490. Traci December 4, 2013 at 2:22 pm #

    Wow! What would I do with $1000?? My family would have a very merry Christmas, that’s for sure! I’ve always wanted a stand mixer so that would be my first purchase.

  491. Tiffany B December 4, 2013 at 2:25 pm #

    Gelatin, magnesium, Paderno spiral slicer, books and books and books, gifts for family!!!

  492. Krista December 4, 2013 at 2:34 pm #

    I would buy amazingly fun things for my family for Christmas. 🙂

  493. Summer Collier December 4, 2013 at 2:34 pm #

    Id give the money to a local organization called The Joy House, located in Cut and Shoot Texas. They help young pregnant girls by provide shelter and support during crisis pregnancies, making it easy for mothers to choose life instead of abortion for their babies. This is an organization that I truly believe in and every year, my family gives to them. 🙂

  494. Anna Hand December 4, 2013 at 2:36 pm #

    I could use this to buy my sons clothes especially pajamas to keep them warm at night…

  495. Di Adra Rose December 4, 2013 at 2:41 pm #

    I would use it to by thank you gifts for the staff at the care facility my grandparents are living in. They are amazing people and treat every resident like they are family- which is needed as some of those folks have no other family to spend time with. Thank you, Jackie for having such a caring heart.

  496. Brandi Pace December 4, 2013 at 2:44 pm #

    I would buy Christmas presents for my family. But mostly I’d buy some low carb/ paleo things off of amazon!

  499. Lucy December 4, 2013 at 3:06 pm #

    My family has had a hard year after losing their house of 28 years and some deaths in the family. I would love to have this card to brighten up their spirits with some needed gifts. The animal shelter can also use some extra blankets and other needed items as the weather gets colder.

  500. Amy S December 4, 2013 at 3:07 pm #

    I would use the gift card to buy healthy food like coconut milk, gelatin, almond flour etc. Thanks to all the bloggers who are offering this giveaway!

  501. Rhiannon Hass December 4, 2013 at 3:13 pm #

  503. KathyK December 4, 2013 at 3:34 pm #

  504. Katie @ www.countercultureliving.com December 4, 2013 at 3:39 pm #

    STock up on some homeopathy books I’ve had my eye on!

  505. Leslie Hughes December 4, 2013 at 3:59 pm #

    It would be amazing to win this gift certificate. I am on a super-tight budget and would use it to stock up on the necessities my son and I need for our special diet (coconut milk, coconut oil, gelatin, FCLO, etc). It would be nice to be able to get a few gifts for my son and for my other family members, as well. Thank you for the giveaway! 🙂

  506. Dana December 4, 2013 at 4:01 pm #

    We have somehow been managing without a food processor so that would be first. Next would be gifts for my family. Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!

  507. Kati B December 4, 2013 at 4:16 pm #

    I would pay some bills and I would also like to bless others if I won 🙂

  508. Tila Quintero December 4, 2013 at 4:20 pm #

    I would love to win the gift card!! I would use it to buy gifts for my family and friends. With whats left I’d buy tons of ingredients for all the awesome recipes that Paleo mama posts. 🙂

  509. Amy Que December 4, 2013 at 4:21 pm #

    I’m going to buy all new healthy cookware!!!! LeCreuset, please 🙂

  510. Meg Henley December 4, 2013 at 4:26 pm #

    We would be so blessed, we would simply use it throughout the year for household necessities, birthday gifts for the children, etc.

  511. Mary A. December 4, 2013 at 4:31 pm #

    I’d stock up on core products like gluten-free flours, probably some grass-fed beef/buffalo, a smoker – ah the list goes on and on!

  512. Nanette December 4, 2013 at 4:35 pm #

    I would buy new furniture for my child’s playroom and bedroom to help re-organize our home for her growing and developing needs, the cooking/kitchen equipment on my long list, probably some gifts, gadgets…the list really could go on. Thank you for this opportunity.

  513. Maderetha December 4, 2013 at 4:47 pm #

    Cookware, cook books and everything else that I can’t get locally and Amazon will ship internationally. But probably more books on self sustainability…

  514. Kate Lyon December 4, 2013 at 4:48 pm #

    I would totally use it slowly over the year to help pay for groceries. Things are so tight these days that it often hurts when pulling out the funds while in the grocery line. Thanks so much for posting a give away.

  515. Michelle McCarthy December 4, 2013 at 4:50 pm #

    I have NO Christmas budget this year. A win like this would certainly change our Christmas plans. We might be able to have that Christmas feast and tree afterall. AND maybe even bless some others along the way. Thanks for the opportunity even if only to dream! Merry Christmas.

  516. Erica December 4, 2013 at 4:51 pm #

    Honestly, not sure what I would do with it, but I know I could put it to good use!

    Thank you for the giveaway.

  517. Rebecca Rogers December 4, 2013 at 4:54 pm #

    I would sure love to use the gift card to get some of the harder to find products that I read about on this blog and other similar website. I have a gluten free 2 year old who is very picky about what he eats because he “thinks it might hurt his tummy” So I try very hard to cook gluten free and paleo for the entire family!

  518. Erika December 4, 2013 at 4:59 pm #

    New furniture!

  519. Danielle December 4, 2013 at 5:03 pm #

    As someone else said, What wouldn’t I do with it?!! We might actually be moving… to place with an actual proper kitchen X-D So there’s where a good chunk will go!

  520. Sara December 4, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

    I have several things on my Amazon wish list that would no longer need to be wishes!!! A $1000 gift card would take care of those and more. Books, healthy foods for my pantry, workout toys, maybe a new kettlebell, one for me and one to share!

  521. Kerri December 4, 2013 at 5:13 pm #

    First thing on the list would be Coconut aminos ’cause I can’t find it anywhere else in Australia!

    Then the spiral machine thingy! Would then have to explore Amazon for other goodies!

  522. Sue December 4, 2013 at 5:18 pm #

    I’d split it among the family or at least come to a consensus of what to buy.

  523. Samantha December 4, 2013 at 5:24 pm #

    I would cry if I won. I never win anything. I would use it for Christmas gifts for the family. Can’t afford them this year :-/

  524. Lori Ramsay December 4, 2013 at 5:27 pm #

    What a blessing this gift would be – I have spent the last two days searching online for items on the Amazon wish list for a local animal rescue. I would purchase every item on their wish list and donate those items to Lakeshore Paws animal rescue!! Congratulations to whoever is lucky enough to win!

  525. Christa Billings December 4, 2013 at 5:27 pm #

    I would spend some on Xmas gifts, buy a little for those on need at Xmas, and use the rest to stock my kitchen with all the gadgets etc I need to stay on the paleo diet successfully.

  526. Michelle December 4, 2013 at 5:35 pm #

    I would buy somethings for my mom! Then I would buy the things we need to fully make the healthy switch in eating!! SO exciting 🙂

    Merry Christmas!

  527. Tracie December 4, 2013 at 6:18 pm #

    I would first buy a vitamix! Love smoothies and the like! I would then buy other healthy items for my pantry. Running low here 🙂

  528. Oceanna December 4, 2013 at 6:25 pm #

    I’d use it for homeschooling books & resources, cooking appliances & coconut milk!

  529. Gina F. December 4, 2013 at 6:28 pm #

    I’d buy gifts for friends and family, a few things for the house to replace old tattered ones, and the supplements I need. 🙂

  530. denise December 4, 2013 at 6:33 pm #

    A Vitamix!

  531. Beth Jones December 4, 2013 at 6:39 pm #

    I would spend it on a new food processor and some other appliances.
