Make Kate’s Stuff Your Stuff!

So I have kind of a weird life. My husband works for Procter & Gamble, so we frequently get huge amounts of P&G products (usually laundry products, like Tide, Bounce, Downy, etc., but also diapers and wipes, deodorant, and CoverGirl foundation for people with a MUCH darker complexion than I have). Then we also frequently get blog-related products to sample, many of which I end up using and loving and also many of which get shoved into a corner cupboard somewhere.

Here’s the deal: I need to downsize. So I want to give someone some of my stuff. I don’t know what stuff it will be yet, but I can pretty much guarantee it will include more dryer sheets than you’ll ever know what to do with and some cookbooks (I have waaaaaaaay too many).

Here’s what I do know:

  • It will be at least $100 worth of stuff.
  • It will all either be new (I’m not going to send you a half-used bottle of shampoo) or like-new (it might be a kitchen tool I’ve only used once or twice and don’t have space for.)
  • You may not want it all. In that case, you are more than welcome to make your newly-acquired stuff someone else’s stuff.
  • I will try and tailor at least some of the stuff to your own needs/wants/interests. Like I said, I have a lot of stuff.

If you want to take a box of stuff off my hands, tell me a random fact about yourself. Like, for instance, if I were entering, I might say, “Hi, I’m Kate, and I can’t buy metal appliances without touching them first because there are some types of metal that I can’t touch without getting the shivers.”

A few rules:

  • The giveaway ends the evening of October 9.  I’ll pick a winner and announce it in my post on Friday, October 10.
  • It’s only open to residents of the United States.
  • Enter with your name and an email address that you check kate's stuff


  1. Hi, I’m Dezi and I would choose to sit on my bed and read a book over going to a party, watching tv or pretty much anything else.

    1. Hi Dezi, I’m Cheryl and I feel the same way! In fact, I love books and reading so much that over the past few years I have created my own library in my basement with over 4,000 books!

  2. I’m NaDell and I LOVE doing laundry. I’m obsessed with having it all done and put away so that only the pajamas we are wearing and bedding we are on is not clean. Good thing I’m a night owl…

    1. OMG me too!! I also get a weird satisfaction out of going as long as I can without using the dryer… like line-drying everything, including socks. #laundrynerd

  3. i love green veggie but I can’t cook them. I hate the way they look while they cook. If I want a green veggie my mother makes it and brings it to my house (I only live a mile away)

  4. I’m obsessed with seasonal/monthly/small rituals and traditions – such as getting a Salted Caramel beverage from Starbucks on the first rainy day of the season.

  5. How fun! I hail from Cincinnati–home to P&G. Random fact: I’m on my 3rd Kitchen Aid mixer in 11 years. Either the quality has gone down, or I bake way too much!

    1. Yep! You are right! Apparently KitchenAid decided to cut their costs a bit so they could make more per piece, so internal parts are now made of… PLASTIC! If you read the nitty gritty, you aren’t supposed to do heavy duty mixing. It’s a pansy now. Since I need mine to be a workhorse, I bought a cuisinart and it’s still going strong after almost 7 years of making whole wheat bread regularly as well as cookies, cakes, muffins etc. You might want to give it a try!

  6. Hi, I’m Sheriece. I buy tons of sewing patterns that I have yet to ever use…. Also, I dream of a super short pixie cut, but I have yet to get the guts to actually go through with it.
