A new look, just in time for the party.

Gift © by asenat29

For six months or so I’ve been saying that I wanted to teach myself how to redesign this site. What I was really saying, of course, was “I probably never will do this, but I sure would like to.”

But then I met web goddess Casey J. Curtis at the Emerald City ComicCon. Don’t all the best stories begin with anecdotes like that?

Talking with her got me off my dime, finally, about the redesign. The timing was perfect: Today is the second anniversary of Surviving and Thriving. To thank you all for sticking with me, I’ve planned an anniversary-sized giveaway.

This time around, as with the first, the big-ticket item is a $100 Amazon gift card, courtesy of the Mr. Rebates cash-back site. (If you’re not yet a member, I hope you’ll consider joining through that link, or through the widget on my site.)

But wait! There’s more!

Also up for grabs in the anniversary giveaway are:

A $50 e-gift certificate to Charlotte Russe.

A $25 Amazon gift card, thanks to Karen Hoxmeier of My Bargain Buddy.

A $25 CVS gift card.

Two books contributed by Liz Weston of MSN Money: “The 10 Commandments of Money: Survive and Thrive in the New Economy” and the recently updated “Your Credit Score: How to Improve the 3-Digit Number That Shapes Your Financial Future” (personalized to you or to the spendthrift of your choosing).

MP Dunleavey of the Daily Worth site is pitching in a latte-sized DW logo cup; I’m adding a $10 Starbucks e-gift card.

The Wise Bread team has donated three copies of “10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget,” a frugalist’s bible.

The Ultimate Cheapskate’s Road Map to True Riches” by Jeff Yeager.

J. Money from Budgets Are Sexy is providing one of his “I’m Bringing Budgets Back” T-shirts (follow that link and tell me those ain’t sexy).

Stephanie Nelson of CouponMom.com will personalize a copy of her best-selling book, “The Coupon Mom’s Guide to Cutting Your Grocery Bills in Half.”

Also from Stephanie Nelson are two “Coupon Mom Organizing Binder” sets: Each has a three-ring binder with 30 six-pocket pages for coupons, 15 index page dividers, “price book” pages, a copy of “The CouponMom’s Strategic Shopping Strategies” booklet, pockets to hold store reward cards, and a bag for other items you might need — pens, calculator, Valium (just kidding about that last).

Dr. Dean Burke is prescribing his book, “The Millionaire Nurse,” which is not for nurses only – the book’s subtitle is “A proven financial first-aid kit for building wealth and freedom.

A pair of Brad’s Deals T-shirts and a Retail Me Not T-shirt (can you tell I’ve been to conferences in the past year?).

Earn What You’re Really Worth,” by Brian Tracy.

That’s a whole lotta prizes

Usually the giveaways are weekly, but sometimes I’ll make an exception. This is one of those times. You’ve got two weeks to enter, up to five different ways:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave separate, additional comments to get credit for each entry.

The deadline is 9 p.m. PDT Tuesday, May 15. If I don’t hear back from the winners by Thursday morning, May 17, I’ll have the random number generator choose other names.

    Being an old bat, I’d like to see the body type larger. Same is true for the template I’m using on Adjunctorium. Serif typefaces seem to look quite small on a web page.
