Frugal Thanksgiving: A Contest

It’s only been a few months since I started practicing frugalism. But I’ve been reaping the rewards already. Not only have I saved lots of moolah this year, I’ve also managed my time efficiently by not buying too much crap to distract me. So, in order to thank the universe and the powers that be, who granted me the will that made my new lifestyle a success, I’m going to share what little bounty I had gained from being a cheapskate in form of a raffle contest.

Yes, a contest. The one with prizes and winners. I assure you, cheap that I am, the prizes isn’t a re-gift or a knitted sweatshirt. In fact, if I may say so, the prizes are pretty cool. If you don’t believe me, take a look:

Win all of these games.

Grand Prize:
A Steam account loaded with various games: Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Team Fortress 2, Portal, Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Borderlands, Torchlight, and Dark Messiah of Might and Magic.

Consolation Prizes:
2 winners will receive a Steam version of Left 4 Dead 2.

Now you’re probably wondering why a frugalist like me is giving all of this away? Well, because I can and I want to. Actually, all this stuff didn’t cost me a lot. I acquired all of these games on the cheap ($40 on all the games) through Steam’s sales, hunting down every weekend and holiday deals that they had, in about a year’s time. It’s also my way of showing you what frugality can bring you: A lot of cheap games, and more cheap games to give away.

Anyways, to enter the raffle contest, just shoot me an e-mail with a title: “I want a Steamy Holiday” at You don’t have to write anything in your letter. Although it’s always polite to introduce yourself.

Contests ends at December 24. I’ll draw and announce the winners in here, on Christmas Day.

Update: If you’re not a gamer, or if you have all of these games. Please do share this contest with your friends.
