**The Hip Hip Hurray Giveaway has a new & permanent home at The New Frugal Mom.**

Every Wednesday, I'll host a giveaway here of free products or, lacking any current offers from the PR folks (*hint-hint*), a $5.00 gift card to the winner's choice of one of these retailers: Kroger, Meijer, CVS, Walgreens, Target, or Amazon.com.

All I'll be asking for in return from you, my fabulous readers, is your input in the comment sections. I do hope you'll play along!

This Week's Hip Hip Hurray Giveaway:

(3) Protect-A-Bed Pillow Protectors!

Did you know that March 9 is National Napping Day?

I know, I know - neither did I. I'm wondering if all of us uber-busy parents can put it on our family calendars and tell our little ones that not only do they *have* to nap on National Napping Day, but they have to let us tired mommies and daddies catch few zzzz's, too!

In honor of National Napping Day, Protect-A-Bed is saluting those of us who....umm - there's really no way to say this kindly - have drooling issues when we sleep. Drool happens, peeps, even to the best of us. But while we might wake up and wipe a quick sleeve across our faces, our pillows - those wonderful friends of dreamland - are left to soak up the excess.


And this is why the Protect-A-Bed Pillow Protectors come in handy; here's some quick facts to consider:

:: Protect-A-Bed Pillow Protectors are covered with natural terry cloth for your comfort during the warm and cool months.

:: They feature the Miracle Membrane, a waterproof barrier fabric for protection from all sorts of moisture.

:: Not only are they hypoallergenic, they also prevent dust mites and bacteria from setting up house in your pillow meaning a reduction in those allergens that can cause asthma attacks or increase eczema.

:: Are fully machine washable and dryable -- easy to clean!

:: For more info, visit their website right here.

Now that we're all *yawning* and dreaming of a little shut-eye, here's how you can enter:

Leave a comment sharing your favorite place to catch a quick nap. Not a napper? Leave a comment sharing your favorite way to recharge during the busy day.

{I'll share mine after the giveaway ends!}

You can also earn (2) more entries:

:: Tweet about this giveaway, then come back and leave me a comment letting me know you tweeted.

:: Subscribe to my RSS feed for your reader or by email. Leave me a comment to let me know you're a new subscriber; if you're already one of the Frugal Faithful and currently subscribe, you can earn this entry by leaving me a comment letting me know you subscribe.

That's (3) entries total which increases your odds! Sweet!

Remember, I need a way to find you if you win! If you're not a blogger, leave me your email address or Twitter handle so I can locate you if you're the winner!

This Hip Hip Hurray Giveaway will end on Sunday, March 8, at 10:00 pm EST. The winner will be announced on Monday, March 9, 2009, National Napping Day!

Thanks for reading and subscribing to The New Frugal Mom!

    I like to catch a quick nap in my guest room daybed-it's so peacefull and quiet in there.


  2. Mindolla // March 4, 2009 9:44 AM  

    My favorite place to nap is actually on a blanket in the park on a breezy day...
    however the place where I get quick power naps the most... leaning in the handicap stall at work! I know...its awful.

    My favorite way to recharge is to put my babies down for a nap and just take some "ME" time! Drink a cup of coffee, read my favorite blogs...whatever! Just sit and enjoy the quiet.

  13. Cara // March 4, 2009 1:07 PM  

    My favorite time to nap is on Sunday, usually in my bed, right next to my hubby.

    I love to nap in my very own bed. It is comfy and warm, with lots and lots of pillows. Oh, how I wish for a nap right now but my kids are not going to go for mommy napping. LOL

    I am a big fan of pillow (and mattress) protectors. My favorite napping spot is on the couch in my kids playroom - sans kids in the playroom!

    I love taking naps on my loveseat on a saturday afternoon..just after lunch and before the day really gets going.

  21. Ginny // March 5, 2009 5:29 AM  

    I nap in my bed. However this pillowcase would make my naps and sleep so much healthier.

    My favorite place to take a nap is on my couch...but that only can happen when my almost 2 year old takes his nap and the other two (5 and 7) are in school...pretty soon napping may be outta the question with the new lil one coming.

  27. heartchild // March 5, 2009 10:58 AM  

    I love to nap in my own bed but with a quilt on top so it doesn't feel like night time.

    I subsribed.



  28. Janelle // March 5, 2009 12:16 PM  

    The only place I nap is on the couch in my living room. Oddly, that is the only place I can sleep during the day!

    My favorite place to nap is my living room sofa, it is so comfy. And I can usually get my doggies to join me, so it is a nice nap!

    A nap, what's that? I used to be able to take naps when my oldest was a baby, but now, the two kids never nap at the same time. I like to nap anywhere, the best when...on a cool summer day with the windows open and the breeze blowing in, a light sprinkle makes it even more soothing.
