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 frequently.
Hi I’m Emily and I am absolutely obsessed with starting new crafts…… Unfortunately I have a really really hard time finishing them!!
Hi! My name is Leslie and I collect cookbooks too, but I don’t have too many! Is there REALLY such a thing? I just moved into my house 2 years ago and we still haven’t finished unpacking! Mainly the stuff for our family and scrapbook/art studio are still in boxes since those rooms are still being worked on. Thanks for the chance and being so nice to share!
I’m Gwen and I love to bake cookies!
Hi! I’m Melissa and I can do a MAD turkey call!!
i’m currently in school to be an eye doctor and dilate myself on almost a daily basis!
Hi I’m Gwyn and my coffee has to be the same color as the back of my hand before I can drink it!
Hi, I’m Shea, and I daydream about going thrift shopping at least once a day. I was at a thrift store a few days ago, and when my total came to 42 bucks for 5 items, I was thinking “MAN! Thrifting is getting so expensive!!” and I had to remind myself I could spend that same amount on one shirt somewhere else. Also, I don’t get why people think wearing something from a thrift store is gross. I mean, every time you go to a restaurant, you are eating with a fork hundreds of other people have eaten with. Chew on that! 😉
I’m a mommy of 5 and the new school year is driving me crazy! A serious lack of mom time to read and exercise!
I work out just about every day, so that means I have to launder my gym clothes every week. I always hang dry my gym clothes instead of putting them in the dryer because I’m afraid of them shrinking in the slightest and giving me a muffin top… I work too hard for that nonsense!
Hi, I’m Janice and I love the smell of fresh tomatoes, I sometimes stop and pick them up from a basket on my counter just to take a whiff as I go by them.
Then you would love Mrs. Meyers cleaning products!
Hi Kate! I’m Susan, and I love trying new recipes and experimenting with old faithful ones.
I’m Karen and I’m making a Roman helmet out of cardboard!
Hi, I’m Krista, and I teach kindergarten, so I have an addiction to teacher supplies.
Hi! So I rarely cook without finding a recipe but then I rarely make the recipe as stated and then I rarely make the recipe a second time even if we really enjoyed it…so now I have 16 recipes for banana bread in my cookbook and I am looking for a new one on BB right now for this weekend.
Hi Kate! I love to organize. If you open any closet, door or drawer, it’s organized! BUT, while I’m busy organizing I forget to clean 😉
I am Arielle, and I desperately want navy blue peekaboo lowlights in my hair. 🙂
Hi, I’m Bridget, and I’d much rather clean a barn full of horse stalls over cleaning my own house!
I would gladly take some of your cookbooks off of your hands. As far as a PROCTER & GAMBLE product I can’t do without my Secret CLINICAL STRENGTH.
I’m Sandra, and I made a radio commercial for Bank of America when I was 9.
Hi, I’m Nazra – and I have made up my mind to stop buying toys for my two girls (under the age of 4). That sounds so mean but I’ve noticed…99% of time they play with everything BUT their toys. (One is using the couch as I wrote this as a trampoline and the other is busying herself by plugging an iPhone charger into & out of an old iPhone. You’ll often hear me say things like “oh sorry, we aren’t going to use the chandelier to hang giant paper clips on” or “sorry, but we aren’t going to take the air pump on a walk with us”. However, the thought of more-than-I-know-what-to-do-with dryer sheets makes me happy because I know they’d give my girls plenty of entertainment as well as any (safe) kitchen gadget (they’d be in play heaven)! 🙂
My name is Margaret and I collect cookiejars but don’t look in the cookie jars for cookies, you won’t find any there.
Hello, hello 🙂 My name is Darcy and my favorite curl-up-on-the-couch-and-watch-mindless-tv-snack would have to be jelly beans & hot tea (Starburst jelly beans specifically cuz they’re crazy tasty & some Honey Chamomile w/a bit of sugar) ~aaahhh, now I just need to find out where to buy a 10 pound bag of those little nibbles of awesome-ness… 🙂
Hi my name is Paige and I am sorta like Bill Cosby’s character from the Cosby show in that I love new kitchen appliances a LOT until I get them home and use them once…then they collect dust while I salivate over the next cool thing.
I’m Keshia, a 28 year old graduate student, I just bought my first sewing machine ever(!), and just learned how to use it 🙂
I like to collect random kitchen appliances that I hardly ever end up using.
Hi, I am Stacie. Random fact. I lost my house in the 89 Santa Cruz earthquake, and I would still never live anywhere else.
Hi I’m Suzi and I love googling ikea bookshelf/craft room ideas! Love craigslist furniture too!!
I use coupons. Have cut out more P&G coupons then I can count. They do use nice paper for them.
I am Cindy. I think white shoes are offensive. I also didn’t like Harry Potter.
I gasped when I read this comment! Hahaha!
I own 8 sewing machines.
