16 August 2011

*** Expired - winners contacted soon ***

Happy Birthday to us, Happy Birthday to us, Happy Birthday dear Moosers, Happy Birthday to us!

I was surprised to glance at the calendar today and see the date... then realise that it was 3 years ago today, that I wrote the first ever post on Bargainmoose. THREE years ago! What happened, where did the time go? In that time, I've shopped till I dropped, sent a million emails, had a baby... and just got engaged! Some might say that I did those last 2 in the wrong order, but that's just the way the cookie crumbled.

If you'd like to get your grubby paws on 1 of 10 exclusive Bargainmoose t-shirts, please leave a comment in the thread below, telling me something interesting that has happened to you in the last 3 years since Bargainmoose's inception. 10 random winners will be selected to win a t-shirt each. While wearing your exclusive Bargainmoose tee, you'll be the envy of your friend and family!! (Maybe not :P)

    I discovered the wonderful gift to bargain hunters that is Bargainmoose. :3 Seriously though, thank you so much for everything you do!
  • Mandy
    In the last three years, I've bought my first house and gotten engaged and married :)
  • liz
    Congrats on getting engaged! And who says there is a "proper order" for all that. As long as you're happy, that's all that matters. In the last three years I have moved from Calgary to Winnipeg, moved houses a second time after that, gone part time at work to spend time at home with my son, and started geocaching. Oh yeah, and gone from 1 dog and 1 cat to 3 dogs and 2 cats, a gerbil and 2 goldfish. Life is pretty busy some days.

  • katama381
    First of all CONGRATS on the 3rd anniversary of Bargainmoose! I am so glad that three years ago you had an idea to start a "shopping blog" because you have helped me and many many others to not only save money but we have received some very nice freetbies, too. Unfortunately, I live a very boring life so nothing exciting happened in the last three years.
  • SA
    Congrats on your 3rd year! Your blog is amazing and you should be very proud! Congrats on your baby and engagement too. The last 3 years have been a bit crazy for me... I graduated from university, launched 2 blogs and just started my own company. Time flies!!
  • Amanda

  • Zoe
    We did a 'biggy'.....we emigrated from the UK to Canada.....so in our family of 4 some of us can now skate, play hockey, eat s'mores without getting marshmallow everywhere, we've seen 'wild' moose and bears, climbed mountains, had our nostril hair freeze it's been SO cold, experienced beautiful white Christmas times, we've hot tubed at some crazy cold temp....there have been many 'firsts' here! Happy 3rd birthday!

  • amandastar
    Yay for Bargain Moose! 3 years and hopefully many many more! Probably the most interesting thing to happen for me is that I flew in an airplane for the first time, and took my first major trip/vacation this past year.
  • Pat
    Way to go on 3 years! Hubby and I just celebrated our "40th" wedding anniversary this weekend. What an accomplishment for us. I was a young bride (17) and he was 21 and the odds were pretty much against us from day one. BUT we have proved that we did and still do love each other very much! And to celebrate this we are renovating our home! wahoooooooooooooooooooo but the dirt! yikes..... the end will be lovely!
  • suzie
    Getting my masters of education degree after many years of teaching was a highlight for me two years ago! I love my job and passionate about the work I do with my students.
  • Shylo
    Congrats on three years!!! The past three years have been crazy!! I got into the BEd program, then found out I was preggo with baby #3 (who is now 15months), so postponed my last two years of school and return this September. My hubby and I celebrated 10 years of Marriage and had a 'renewal of vows' celebration with great friends and family as we basically eloped in Scotland in 2001. I can go on and on, but won't :)
  • Jessica
    I first found out about bargainmoose last summer and boy was I hooked. Since then I have gotten tonnes of free stuff and saved a lot of money. I've also invested in a lot of little things like a kobo and a tassimo coffee maker. It's hard to not invest when you hear about such great deals popping up via bargainmoose. I'm so glad I did because now I can't live without these items and it's great to know like minded people are watching out for deals we can all use!
  • Linda
    Congratulations on 3 years!! Well done!! Your site is my homepage and I check for updates throughout the day. I have often taken advantage of the deals you find and constantly share them with my family and friends. I am like katama381 nothing exciting has happened in my life in the past 3 years. Best wishes for continued success!!
  • Emma B.

    Congratulations BargainMoose! The last three years have been pretty sweet around here. My daughter, the love of my life, my Boston Terrier and I moved into a glorious lakefront home and have been enjoying the sound of the crashing waves for three years now. Life couldn't be any sweeter! We've been some great places, made some wonderful new friends and made some major purchases and discovered the love of couponing! Here's to the next three years!

  • Tim P.
    Well, in the last three years... I caught my Ex fiance cheating on me, with a guy she met online playing w.o.w. as such I lost my home, my hobbys, and most of my posetions as she demanded i liquadate at a loss to pay her move to chicago.. like an idiot i did comply, later i discovered that she ran up my line of credit and stuck me with all the bills.. SHE even took my dogs!! heart broken and in debt with nothing to show for it, i've been digging my way slowly out, partly thanks to this site saving me cash .. Side note, about 2.5 years ago I met my soulmate <3 whom went through a simalar situation with her ex husband. Life has been wonderfully working out since, next week i hit the big 35 and i'm almost done with my debt, and we are now trying for a baby!! The whole story is much more elaborate, but hey... who's got time for a sob story on Bargan moose B-DAY!! Congrats folks! happy B-day! T

  • Veronica
    Happy BDay Bargain Moose! First, thank you for posting all the wonderful deals, coupons and freebees on your site! I have used many, and check in a few times daily, which have saved me tons of $$! In the past three years life has been busy for me as well, esp with three tween and teen daughters (chauffering, chaperoning, sports teams and travel)! I work full time as an EA with spec. needs children and love my job! My husband & I have built a humongous home on the shores of a beautiful river, and in March we rescued a 4 day old black angus calf who is now a part of the family. I can't wait to see what is coming up for coupons this fall, since school will be back in session in a few short weeks and the females in the family love to shop!

  • Nadine M.
    Happy Mooseday! Er, I mean Birthday :D I really enjoy your daily email and have snapped up many a bargain since becoming a 'Mooser' around a year ago now. In the last 3 years I have graduated from College, turned the 'dirty 30', met my lovely life partner, and most excitingly, move my entire life from the Emerald Isle to beautiful Vancouver, BC. I love living in Canada and leap out of bed every morning with a song in my heart :o)

    Happy Birthday BM!
  • Donnas
    Happy 3rd Birthday. In the last three years I've had a daughter who has left her teenage years behind (but hopefully she's not ready to leave the nest). I've also fell in love with a wonderful man who adores me and treats me as an equal. (I've only been with him a few months but have known him for over 20 years).
  • AMac

    Happy Birthday!! In the last three years I have become a crazy cat lady,a couponer and a sweeper. I have gone from feeling helpless about my finances to feeling in control and blessed thanks to the coupons savings and little winnings I've been blessed with. I haven't won money or trips yet, but makeup and local event tickets make life a little more fun :)
  • Cecilia
    In the last three years I have fixed the bathroom, had my second child, joined barginmoose, and my brother got married. Happy Birthday! Happy Engagement!
  • Mandy G.
    WOW three years really does fly. In the last three years (as it really does fly) I had my second baby. I remember wondering how I was going to have enough love for my second because I loved my daughter so much. But my heart grew, and the love was magically there. In a mere week he will turn *1*

    I have become a bargain/freebie junkie...and like a virus (for good instead of evil!)..haha..I have infected all my friends and family with the bargaining bug! Even the skeptics have seen the results of good deal hunting! Which of course includes a daily trip to Bargainmoose! Thanks for the great tips!

    Happy 3rd Birthday BargainMoose! Let's see....in the last three years I've been on my first vacation in 19 years with my husband and without our 3 kids!! We've watched one kid graduate from high school, one from elementary school and watched the third one win academic awards dispite multiple learning disabilities!! Yup...I'd say these last 3 years have been a roller coaster at times but we've only become stronger through the rough stuff and more grateful for the good stuff! Life is definitely worth celebrating....even if it's not our birthday!!! Cheers!

  • Melissa
    Happy Birthday BargainMoose! Thank you for this fantastic site! As a result, over the past 3 years I have become more of a bargain shopper - shopping for deals and shopping second hand.

  • MaysieDog
    In the past three years... I'm not too sure what all happened. Just like every family out there; we have kids, they went to school, they had homework ( I'm sure... ). We ate, we laughed, we cried. We mowed the lawn, shoveled the snow, and tried to put on something on the dinner table most every night. We worked, we went on holidays, and something was wrong with the vehicle / hotel room / GPS directions and / or hiway signage, NOT the navigator.... But most of all, we held onto our faith and saw it through. Happy Birthday, Bargain Moose!
  • Christine S.
