Well I guess I started entering the odd competition as a teen from my magazines and my first ever win was Boyzone Live At Wembley VHS. Yes I am showing my age! I didn’t take entering competitions seriously until I came down with ME/Chronic Fatigue syndrome at 16. I was housebound for 7 years and was very poorly but on “better” days very bored so my Mum bought me my first computer and I discovered the world of comping for FREE on the internet. I could sit and enter as many as I wanted and get random prizes turning up at my door, most I didn’t even know I had won. Safe to say I was hooked from then.
I have only the last 3 years or so started keeping track of my wins each year so it’s impossible to add up how many prizes I have won or the value of them but with a car, 10+ holidays, cash, tvs, game consoles etc I would have a guess at over £50,000 worth of prizes and all for taking some time to sit and enter competitions.
