Giveaway Day #5 (The Last): a Cornucopia of Goodies 💰

Happy Friday!!

And welcome to our LAST DAY of giveaways!

Starting Monday we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming, so don’t worry if you think the blog’s been hijacked forever ;) Just trying to spread the love and declutter my minimalist space at the same time! And I say “space” because it’s most certainly not my *home*, but more like my wife’s and kid’s, lol… But at least 1/10th of it is minimal!

Before we get to today’s goodies though, here are the winners of yesterday’s merch:

  • “Bank Roll” tee — Angie
  • “Get Your Money” tee — Tiera B.
  • Life Goals Ampersand tee — Victoria S.
  • “Bank Roll” sweatshirt (gray) — Steve B.
  • “Bank Roll” sweatshirt (black) — Cathy K.
  • “i’m on a budget” sweatshirt — bridget_budget

Wear ’em loud and proud! 😎

And now for today’s goods…


#1. Statement Cards

statement cards

So we have millions of greeting cards for birthdays and holidays and graduations etc, but what about cards celebrating women’s ambitions and milestones “beyond marriage and motherhood”?!

This was the inspiration behind these “Statement Cards” created by Stefanie O’Connell Rodriguez who believes in “recognizing women, not only for their value in relation to others, but also, for their own achievements and successes.”

This package contains 6 unique Statement Cards, and are perfect for “supporting your sister as she starts her own business, congratulating your bestie when she scores a raise, or taking a moment to acknowledge yourself when you finish paying off your student loans. We’re here to help you celebrate – joyfully and unapologetically.”

Pretty cool idea, and very much needed in our world :) Here’s more of the backstory on it from an interview we did a couple years ago: The Story Behind “Statement Cards”


#2. Vanguard Mugs

vanguard mugs

My collection of beautiful clever coffee mugs!! Which I rarely use and thus why I’m giving them away, even though I really REALLY like them!! :) But maybe one of you can use them in your daily routines and make me feel better that they are going to a good home?! Or better yet – maybe you keep one and then pass on the others to keep spreading the love of index funds?

However you play it, all 3 are up for grabs and sure to improve anyone’s morning ☕☕


#3. Coin Collecting Package

coin collecting bundle

This is for anyone who’s been thinking of collecting one day but doesn’t know where to start! Or who just loves learning about our nation’s currency.

The package includes:

  • 3 magazines from our hobby’s association, the American Numismatic Association (who also has one of the best DOMAINS online in the world:!) — Great articles along with current price guides (though I never use those, and prefer the “Red Book“)
  • A copy of the Bank Note Reporter — which focuses more on paper money than coins, and also includes articles as well as a price guide (I *do* use this one for all my paper money valuing…)
  • The “Red Book — our hobby’s most popular value guide for coins in the U.S., as well as from colonial times. This book alone will get you most of what you need when evaluating a coin collection, and also comes with some good history info in the beginning as well. If you ever need help deciphering it (it’s not too hard), or prefer having someone else value your coins for you, just give me a shout and I’d be happy to hook it up. I help evaluate, inventory, and sell collections all the time – it’s super fun!

#4. Love and Money Bundle

love and money bundle

Last up – a combo package from the former team behind The Money Couple, which I recently helped sell to my friends Taylor and Megan Kovar. (Another side hustle/service I do is blog brokering. If you’re ever in the market for a money blog or want to sell yours, hit me up!)

This package contains:

  • The 5 Money Personalities Guidebook” by Scott and Bethany Palmer — “With The 5 Money Personalities™, you can get to the root of money arguments and start really working together.

You’ll figure out how to put an end to money secrets and lies once and for all.” – Amazon
  • The 5 Money Conversations to Have with Your Kids at Every Age and Stage” by Scott and Bethany Palmer — “Money affects you and your kids every day. The 5 Money Conversations offers practical advice for dealing with three age groups (5–12, 13–17, and 18 and beyond). It is the parenting “how to” book you don’t want to live without.” – Amazon
  • “Love & Money Lifestyle Series” box by Scott and Bethany Palmer –A 90 day system and “toolkit to bring your love & money together!” Includes two guidebooks, the 5 Money Personalities book, a DVD video series, an audio CD series, The 5 Money Personalities magnets, as well as other items and bonus DVDs.

Here’s more about Scott and Bethany Palmer from the back of the box:

“The Money Couple, Scott and Bethany Palmer, regularly appear on National TV and radio and speak internationally about “Love and Money.” With 38 years of combined financial planning experience, Scott and Bethany launched The Money Couple and have dedicated their lives to helping couples bring their love and money together.

And that’s a wrap!

If you’re interested in any of these:

Tell me which one(s), and why, and you’ll be entered to win 👊

I’ll randomly select the winners after 5pm EST today, and then come back to this post and update it at the bottom. I won’t be sharing it in the next blog post like I’ve been doing, so you’ll have to pop back here to see if you’ve won…

And that wraps up the week! I hope you’ve been enjoying these!! And perhaps won something :) We’ll be sure to do more later (I love giveaways!), but for now we get back into the groove of things and continue to share the good financial word come Monday morning…

Thanks for playing along! Have a great weekend!

  1. Suz September 16, 2022 at 6:31 AM

    Happy Friday indeed! I’d like to be entered to win the statement cards because I love to send cards via snail mail to brighten someone’s day!
    Also please enter me for the Coin Collecting package so I can try to determine the value of my paper and coin collection as I’m thinking of selling portions.

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:23 PM

      I’d love to see the list of what you’re selling once you’re done – I might be interested in them! :)

      (and if you need any help along the way, just shout 👍)

  2. Kat Bridges September 16, 2022 at 7:04 AM

    I would find the Coin Collecting Package so useful. I inherited my father’s coin collection. It has been sitting in boxes and cans for six years now. This will give me the push to research what I actually have and determine its worth.

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:26 PM

      Ahhh yes!! Please do pick up the Red Book if you don’t win it – you’ll find it incredibly helpful! :)

  3. Cathie September 16, 2022 at 7:17 AM

    I would love to have the Love & Money package because my husband and I do have different ideas about money, and I’d sure like us to figure it out so we’re both content. Also, we have an almost 20 year old son who is trying to figure out how best to use money.
    Thanks for the consideration!

  4. Liz September 16, 2022 at 7:35 AM

    The statement cards! I send hand written notes to friends every 1-2 weeks to try to brighten their day/ week. This would be a great win because I wouldn’t keep them, they’d be spreading positive vibes with others.

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:27 PM

      Such a great idea – love it :)

  5. Lynn September 16, 2022 at 7:42 AM

    The coin collecting package. My father passed 6 years ago in November. He has a large collection still in mom’s possession. She is nervous about taking it somewhere for appraisal. This would give her a starting point. Thank you!

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:29 PM

      Good!! If you don’t win it be sure to send her a copy of the Red Book for a gift or something! Or send her my way and i’ll be happy to talk things over with her as well – gotta make sure we get that collection into another pair of hands that can appreciate and continue on what he started :)

  6. Roxanna September 16, 2022 at 7:44 AM

    I would love to be entered for the coffee mugs. The “contents are extremely cost effective” is a brilliant and subtle message to all those Starbuckers out there!

  7. Shar September 16, 2022 at 7:48 AM

    Love the statement cards!! I am a card collector of all occasions but do not have any like these in my collection. Would be amazing to send to friends to let them know, “I see you and your accomplishments”

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:31 PM

      Oh cool! I didn’t know collecting greeting cards was a hobby!? You should check out her site for all the others she’s created as well – she’s always coming up with good ones :) –>

  8. Sara Bunnell September 16, 2022 at 8:36 AM

    The statement cards or the coin collector book! OMG! it took me all week to figure out how to leave a comment! :) Love your blog!

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:32 PM


      Now you can get addicted and send me comments after *every* blog post ;)

  9. Chriswife September 16, 2022 at 8:51 AM

    Please consider me for the coin collecting bundle. I recently received some old coins. I’m curious about them and don’t know where to look to start learning about coins. Seeing this today seem like serendipity to me.

  10. michelle September 16, 2022 at 9:02 AM

    Id love to win the coin collecting bundle. Ive had a lot of coins passed down through the years and have no idea of their value. It sounds like a good research projwhen it 30 below this winter and we are stuck inside.

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:32 PM

      Haha… yeah it does.

  11. Julie September 16, 2022 at 9:06 AM

    The coffee cups! I like the sayings on them. Thank you for a fun week.

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:32 PM

      you’re very welcome :)

  12. M Dornbusch September 16, 2022 at 9:22 AM

    I’d like to win #3&#4. I have 6 children and each of them have unique thoughts regarding how to accumulate wealth. Additionally the second and third oldest boys love collecting baseball cards and coins. They have well over 4k coins. They continually peruse the internet looking for the value of their cards and coins. Thanks for your blog and all the joy you bring your readers!

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:33 PM

      I’m glad you’re enjoying it!

  13. Emily S. September 16, 2022 at 9:26 AM

    I’d love to be considered for either of these :)

    Coin stuff – My 9 year old son is obsessed with coins and I just dusted off my late father’s coin collection to get him started. He’s in heaven! Future J$?

    Vanguard – One of my good friends is a successful realtor and I’m constantly telling her to invest in Vanguard – maybe giving her a mug would help convince her? :) :)

    Happy Friday!

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:33 PM

      you’re raising a smart kid ;)

  14. Erin September 16, 2022 at 11:14 AM

    I would love the Vanguard coffee cups! I have the travel mug myself, but it is looking very battered due to so much use! And I would love to give the mugs to my mom as a gift. She introduced me to Vanguard. :)

  15. Steve B September 16, 2022 at 11:43 AM

    Would love the coffee cups.
    Anyone who doesn’t use reusable mugs and fill them from the free coffee pot at work should reconsider.
    (and I’m not the Steve B that won yesterday)

  16. Gary Grewal September 16, 2022 at 1:00 PM

    I just want to say you’re awesome and a bright light that makes the week fun, what a great idea this was. You’re the best J!

  17. Barbara September 16, 2022 at 1:02 PM

    In the same sich as Kat B. above and would love the coin collecting package. Inherited a coin collection spanning @150 years and don’t know a thing about coins. I love history, so I think this would be some interesting reading too. Thanks for your giveaways!

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:35 PM

      Yes – you’d enjoy it!! Be sure to pick up a copy of the book if you don’t win! :)

  18. Samantha September 16, 2022 at 2:03 PM

    What a fun week of giveaways this is! I’m obsessed with those statement cards. As a woman nearing 40 with no kids, we do not celebrate milestones or success like we should outside of having babies!! I will send those to all my friends. I may just buy them even if I don’t win :)

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 2:21 PM

      YES! Please do! She has a lot of other different ones too that I wasn’t able to feature here… Such a fantastic idea (and mission).

  19. Lauren k September 16, 2022 at 3:46 PM

    Love & money. This is most interesting to me because I love to learn more about money and how different people think about it. And especially how to teach my kids about it!!

  20. Laura September 16, 2022 at 4:58 PM

    I love the mugs! Because coffee is important, and so is frugality!

    1. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 8:44 PM

      Yeah they are :)

  21. J. Money September 16, 2022 at 8:50 PM
