earthfarelogolargeFree $50 Earth Fare Gift Card

Budgets always get really tight around the holidays. We all know that. And, Earth Fare, the healthy supermarket, seems to know that too. Have you been to their stores? If so, you would know that they are always trying to make healthy eating affordable, easy and delicious! Seriously – have you tried their homemade, all-natural chocolate chip cookies – if not, it is 99 cents of deliciousness! Well, in celebration of the opening of their new Chattanooga store on December 9th, Earth Fare gave me a $50.00 gift card to give away! Yeah, very cool. They just said, hey Jebbica- give this away for us.

So, now, we want you to tell us why you deserve or just plain want this gift card. We’ve all got stories. You may be hosting your family’s holiday dinner on an extremely tight budget. You may have lost your job recently and just need some extra help to make it through this already tough season. You may be a cookie lover or organic food nut! Or, perhaps for whatever reason, you’ve never tried a healthy food store and just want to see what it’s like! Give us your best reason, and we’ll consider it for the prize.

The best story gets the card. So, ready, set, and get writing. Post your reason in the comments below today! You only have until Friday, December 4 to get your entry in. And, we’re waiting..

    Jebbica,

    Here’s why I need the card the mostest… after Mama died, Daddy ran off leaving me to raise the four young ‘uns by myself – that wouldn’t have been so bad if I still had my eyesight, but after the accident… anyhow, I’m not one to complain, and we’re doing fine on the government cheese that my old lady’s probation officer brings over when she visits. Plus, seems they’ve really gone up on what they’ll pay for a kidney these days, and I should be gettin’ my check any day! Anyhow, the $50 would be nice… I’d love to introduce the kids to things like milk and eggs (don’t worry, I won’t spoil ‘em!)

    I spent a month unemployed after losing my bartending job when a girl begged for my shift and then didn’t show up for it. In that time I’ve survived on Ramen noodles, tuna in a can (which I always thought was foul before and never ate) and whatever else I could find in the cabinets that had been forsaken by my roommate past the expiration date. I reasoned with myself that this was my excuse for eating her food: I only ate stuff that was about to go bad. My rock-bottom moment came when I mused hungrily over a box of pancake mix two years past the date, then thought to Google it and discovered this was deadly. And yet somehow, the poverty diet wasn’t working. I was puttin ON weight because I was eating so much less healthy than I usually did.

    Then I finally got a job at Smoothie King and reasoned with myself that I could quell any hunger I had with free smoothies until I got paid and could buy groceries. I’d even lose weight, I thought. But all the smoothies did was confuse my stomach (“This is not food!”) and make me bloat with water weight.

    When I got my first paycheck, it was exactly enough to cover rent, leaving stocking my cabinets with healthy groceries a distant memory.

    Thanks for your comment Kate, and good luck! If your story is true, may I share with you my “How to eat for $3 a day” story I wrote a few months ago? I too have little to no money, but I have learned to really really make it stretch. Here is the link: http://thejebbica.com/how-to/eat-3-dollars-day/

    PS: On “special occasions”, it helps to buy a certificate from restaurant.com for $2 and you can eat fancy for two for about $12 total. But that’s a whole other blog! :)

    The reason why I am untreated in this little give away card is the same reason I do everything these days…for my unborn child. Becoming a first time mother is scarey all on its own, reading the baby books doesn’t help the fear or anxiety! What you can’t it,what you shouldn’t eat,if you eat this it causes birth defect, If you eat that you throw up all night. It all is overwhelming. The chemicals and ingredients added to everything doesn’t help. Planning to bring baby into this world I can use all the help I can get! A chance to shop somewhere I don’t have to worry about all the extra add ins would simply be amazing.

    I deserve this card because I am your mother. I had my body cut open so that you could be born, and that was after almost 24 hours of labor and having my water broken with extra long knitting needles. All this because your extra large head was too big to come out of my youknowwhat.

    Luv ya!

    Mom

    When I was at Triple 7 Studios last week, I met one of the guys starting it up. And I’d like to check out the store he spoke of with such love.
