Plus, the fact my UPS man is a total hottie and the only time I get to see him in those tight brown khakis is when he delivers me presents from Amazon.com is kind of a big deal too.

  1. I would want the Leatherman. Although the squirrel panties would look great on my 3 inch waist, the Leatherman might actually help me to survive!

  2. I just subscribed to the email newsletter. I should have done it some time ago. I love this blog as it helps keep me motivated.

  3. Stephanie in SC says:

  12. The excellent handbook (one with a redesigned cover–peace signs or Amish caps and hats instead of army camo).

  13. I ♥ you on Facebook :)

  14. I’d ask for a bunch of water purifiers, a multi tool and a satelittle phone. Can you get those of Amazon? Probably, you can get EVERYTHING on Amazon and I love it almost as much as I love your blog!

  15. my 3 items would be the leatherman, a tarp and some rope.

  16. ok….ignore that previous comment. i obviously am not alert yet because i haven’t had my diet coke! i’d pick the leatherman.

  17. i just subscribed to the email newsletter and i’m “sharing” on facebook because i already “like” you ;)

  18. I choose #3, the book to be drop shipped with your hot UPS man!

  19. although the squirrel undies are quite tempting, i think i’d have to go with the leatherman

  20. Definitely the Leatherman. I’ve always thought those were the neatest things since sliced bread!

  21. The leatherman multitool, so maybe I could make something to get off of the island.

  29. I’m a facebook fan!

  30. I suscribed via e-mail!

  31. The pink squirrel pants were tempting but….i’d have to go with the Leatherman. PS is there anyway you can sneak a photo of your UPS man? Iam curious to know how those khakies look. :)

  32. Also subscribed. Thanks Mavis!

  33. I’d take the book. At least then I’d have something to read.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  34. Jenni in KS says:

    I would ask for the multi tool. I already have a whole shelf of survival books, many of which I’ve read, and we used to teach survival skills to our Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups. Having the tool, although not essential, would make it easier to put some of that knowledge to use.

  35. Jenni in KS says:

    I’ve just liked the Facebook page.

  36. Jenni in KS says:

    I’ve added the newsletter to my Google Reader.

  37. Stephanie says:

    The leatherman all the way!

  38. I feel like I would need the leatherman but I probably wouldn’t be able to figure out how to use it, so I’d choose the survival book.

  39. I like your facebook page

  41. I’m subscribed!

  42. I would choose #2 :)

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  45. Hmm..those squirrel girlie underpants are looking pretty good, but I’d say, leatherman. I already have a lot of the knowledge, and that book is great, but the tool would be awesome in that situation.

  46. I would have to have the book! I need something to read in order to live. And it would be handy to know how to survive out there.

  47. I already ‘like’ you on Facebook and shared it with my friends.

  48. And I subscribed to your newsletter because I totally want this gift card!

  49. I’d do the survival book :)

  50. Posted your giveaway on my facebook wall.

  51. I subscribed to your email updates. :)

  52. Had to think about Item #2 or #3, but would go for the Leatherman…

  53. Shared on FB.

  54. I get your newsletter too!

  55. I will have to go with some kind of tool, tarp and rope but I think some chocolate coconut water would be great too.

  56. Squirrel panties. We already have a Leatherman. Enough said.

  57. I’m a FB liker :)

  58. Subscribed to your emails. Thanks for a great giveaway.

  59. I follow you on facebook and just shared your link

  60. I’d have to go with the survival book

  61. I would want #2. I think I could figure out how to survive, but doubt I’d be able to create that tool!

  62. I would like the Leatherman multi tool if on a desert island :)
    Love this giveaway, but don’t do Facebook.

  63. I don’t get the email but do follow you faithfully on Google Reader.
    Have a wonderful and frugal 2012!

  64. It’s a hard choice, but I think I’d have to go with the leatherman.

  65. Hi I liked u on facebook today but I’ve actually liked u for a long time. Hope I win I loved Amazon too! Robin in SoCal

  66. I subscribed via e-mail

  67. I’m subscribing to email now too :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  68. I’m thinking the Squirrel Underpants. You don’t want a bunch of naked squirrels running around the island!

  69. I follow you on facebook!

  70. I think I would have to go with the revised book so I could compare it to our old book and as well as the military issued survival books we own plus we already own a few multi-tools. :)

  71. I subscribed to your emails. I’m really excited about that. I find myself asking “What would Mavis do?” pretty often. Love your site and am excited for the new year!

  72. I think I would go with the tool — but underwear would be nice too!

  73. I like you on facebook!

  74. I subscribe to your daily newsletter! I just found your blog today, but have followed you on fabulessly frugal. So glad I can read more that you have written — you made my day!

  75. The leatherman for sure. I couldn’t do anything with out it.

  76. I already follow you on facebook and have shared your giveaway.

  77. I am already a subscriber. Thanks Mavis for sharing your love for coupons and Amazon with all of us.

  78. The squirrel underpants, DUH!

  79. I shared this on FB! :)

  80. I’m already subscribed.

  81. I would chose Item number three, because while a leatherman would come in handy, I’m all about knowing what kinds of plants and berries I can eat and I’m hoping the survival book would help me out with that. Great giveaway and I LOVE the new look:-).

  82. Amanda B. says:

    I would definitely choose the leatherman.

  83. Amanda B. says:

    just subscribed to your email updates!

  84. Amanda B. says:

    I already have liked you on Facebook. :)

  85. leatherman. I’d just want to cut little branches and build a fire, or a lean-to, or something!

  86. I would say the leatherman. I can’t live without mine now. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  87. If I thought there was reason to hope that I’d be rescued soon, I’d choose Item #3. But if I were fairly certain that I’d die alone and starving and hallucinating, I’d want Item #1, just to try and slip them on a girl squirrel for maniacal laughs.

  88. Liked you on facebook

  89. I would want the leatherman, even though the other 2 would be helpful, one for information and one for laughs :)

  90. signed up for newsletter :)

  91. I would definitely take the survival book…then I would have something to read!! Although I was somewhat tempted by the squirrel underpants! :)

  92. I subscribe to your email newsletter!

  93. You go Girl!

    (not an entry, just a pat on the back)

  99. I would choose Item #2 (leatherman)

  100. I have subscribed (via email) and look forward to having your posts delivered straight to my email so I can read them. (I’m new to the “blog” thing, didn’t know how to subscribe any other way).

    thank you for the opportunities!

  101. I’d want the survival book.

  102. I just LIKE’d your site on Facebook.

  103. …and I just subscribed to your email newsletter (thinking I need to read it since there was one month this summer that we spent as much on food as you spent the whole year!)

  104. I would want the SAS Survival Handbook for sure! It could tell me how to survive anything …. I’m sure of it :)

  105. I “like” you on Facebook and have shared with my friends this giveaway – even though I would like to win it myself :)

  106. I have subscribed to your newsletter and can’t even wait for this year!!!! I am in the early stages of planning my VERY FIRST garden….wish me luck! :)

  108. I follow on facebook

  109. I like you on Facebook!

  110. Haha! I just found you through pinterest! Fun blog! I now stalk you. Wait! I mean follow….yes follow… :)
    I am not sure which item i would like to have….#2 or #3….I think I will have to go with #2. I haven’t seen Les Stroud with a book or Squirrel panties yet, although I think that would be a VERY interesting episode of Survivor Man!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  111. Amanda Steyaert says:

    That was a tough choice, but I’d have to go with the survival handbook!

  112. Brittany F. says:

    I don’t know if the book would be any good if you didn’t have items it suggested, so I’ll take the Leatherman. The gag gift…comes in a close 2nd.

  113. Brittany F. says:

    I like you on FB!

  114. Brittany F. says:

    I am a subscriber!

  115. #3, the book. It probably has lots of useful tips!

  116. I just subscribed to email updates. Thanks for the giveaway!

  117. Pattie F. says:

    I would want the leatherman! I am already pretty outdoor savvy and think the tool would be way more useful to me than the book.

  118. Pattie F. says:

    I am now a facebook fan!

  119. It would have to be the handbook. You know, reading more is a goal for 2012.

  120. Heather S. says:

    I think I’d have to go for item #3. I wouldn’t know what to do with number 2 without number 3, and although #1 is funny (who knew they’d have something like that and how on earth did you find it?), I’d want a fighting chance :)

  121. I would take the multitool if I had to pick. Thanks for the giveaway, I love Amazon!

  122. I liked you on FB, thanks for the giveaway!

  123. I subscribed to your newsletter. Thanks for the giveaway!

  124. The leatherman!

  125. sukyee ng says:

    The letterman tool.

  126. I subscribed to your newsletter, thanks for the giveaway!

  127. I ‘liked’ you on facebook. I would choose the Leatherman!

  128. I liked your page and would love an amazon gift card!

  129. Paula Walter says:

    I would choose the Leatherman tool…although the book might come in handy. I think with a tool and common sense you could survive , especially after watching The Colony lol!! I love your blog you are so humerous! Thanks, amishwoman49

  130. Paula Walter says:

    I liked you on Facebook.. Thanks

  131. Paula Walter says:

    I LOVE AMAZON also! I subscribed…thanks

  132. I have subscribed to your blog for quite some time…love it!

  133. I’ve “liked” you on FB!

  134. For sure I would choose the Leatherman 830032 ~ with a leather sheath no less! Not only could I use the Leatherman for many things…I could figure out a way to eat the leather sheath if in dire need of nourishment!

    BTW ~ I entered this comment in two different places, please disregard one of them!

  135. Geesh, I guess I’d pick the leatherman tool, but wouldn’t know how to use it. The book would be helpful but then I would have no tools and would have to make my own. As for the squirrel panty thing (what the heck?) Oh well….I was hoping for a choice of bottled water or food, but I guess that choice would not be as interesting. Either way, I would wish for lots of fruit and plentiful fish on this island, but I have a feeling that might be a Tom Hank movie pipe dream. How about a sport ball for a friend to talk to? No?? Hey, I tried.

  136. You are officially liked on FB. Oh, and no offense to Tom (I meant Hanks, of course).

    P.S. I too vote for a photo of Mr. UPS Hottie. I mean, really, Mavis, give the people what they want, right?
