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 Julie, and I love watching reruns of The Golden Girls.
Count me in! Sounds like the stuff I like. 😉
I enjoy making my kids do chores, even though they say none of their friends have chores. I don’t want my kids to be that roommate that doesn’t know how to clean a bathroom.
I am a closet hoarder of cooking utensils. My drawer is so full it won’t shut unless you lay them a certain way! I think I have like 3 spatulas, 4 whisks, 7 (yikes!) rubber scrapers…and a whole army of others! I hate having to wash one off when I’m in the middle of cooking several things at once.
My name is David and I’m a foodie
Hey I’m Jenafer & my husband and I are (hopefully) having a newborn infant baby boy placed in our home at the end of the month. Giddy up!
I love free stuff, I also love getting sorted and clean out too. It’s the balance in life right?
Hi, I’m Laura and it took me until my junior year in high school to reach my maximum height of 5 feet tall. My friends and now my husband love to tease me about being so small.
Hi there! I’m Merideth & I am a completely snobbish obsessive thrifter. Like queen on a pauper budget. Somehow I was born with an eye for the luxurious, yet thrive on a thrifty budget & can always sniff out the “good stuff”! As in, it’s kind of becoming a running joke with all of my closest friends. “Need xyz? Ask Merideth, she can probably find it for .50!” So, duh, free fun goodies seem like a no-brainer, too! 🙂 Thanks for a fun giveaway!
Hi, my name is Kristy, and I completely totaled my Toyota Sequoia yesterday. First accident ever. My little girl (age two) and I are fine, thank heavens. But I could definitely go for some FREE stuff right now, considering the whole mess was my fault . . .
Hi Kate! I’m addicted to Diet Coke and I buy pretty fabric and I can’t even sew 🙂
Hi Im Megan, and I have secret stashes of chocolate in random places all over my house…. ya know. For ER purposes…..
Love this! Random fact: I can’t eat anything white/creamy ~ it makes me gag! No sour cream, cream cheese, ranch, yogurt, mayo, miracle whip, cottage cheese, alfredo sauce, cheese sauce, etc. The ONLY exception: Frosting!! of course!!
Hi! My name is Lindsey and about the time we had our second child I gave up on making my bed. It’s been well over a year since I made it :).
I love baking/kitchen paper goods, cuter the better. Really I need 4 different types spring cupcake liners?
I cook meals nearly every day but I seldom ever bake any desserts. My philosophy about baking is that (although I love sweets) it leaves the kitchen messy and only makes me fat. I try to avoid both.
Hi, I’m Dee. I have a hard time with some things due to a stroke. It’s really funny sometimes how you have to adjust in order to do simple things you never even thought of before. Where there’s a will there’s a way.
I am a disney addict. I think I love it more then my kids.
I’m Lacey, and my super power is meticulously sorting the laundry and taking care to choose just the perfect settings on the washer, and then leaving the clothes in there for 2 days before I remember them. Nothing like mildewy laundry on it’s 3rd wash cycle.
I am a mom of 2 girls and I love to shop at thrift stores!
I love to read. I have 3 kids and fear I will never be organized or have a neat/clean house again. In our house, everyone wants to be the first to smell the new jar of peanut butter.
Hi, I’m Myrianne, and I am ocd about my bookshelves. All alphabetized and straightened…. Constantly.
Hi, I’m Dana, and I always cross my big toe over the toe next to it on both feet when I’m sitting. I don’t know why, but it’s comfortable and my college roommates got a kick out of it!
Hi, my name is Danielle. I too suffer from Haptodysphoriaphobia. Look it up. You will be amazed to find that the fear of the way things feel actually has a name and diagnosis. Lol. No really.
Uuummmm…. okay…you can look it up but don’t actually click on any links for it. Just read the google blurb. Apparently its a dicey phobia.
I’m Shauna and I could eat cereal three meals a day.
I’m Megan and want my obituary to include that I was popular among my co-workers.
I’m Melody. My worst kitchen blunder was as a kid – using DRIED minced onion when the meatloaf recipe called for minced onion (not yet knowing the difference). We all figured out the difference all afternoon…bodily gaseous emissions were unbearable. Especially for my physician father who had to frequently high tail it out of patient rooms. Sorry, Dad! But cooking as a kid did come in handy…now and forever a foodie.
Hi! I’m Chrisanthy and anytime I try a new food or drink I always smell it first. Weird I know and people make fun of me every time I do it.
Hiya! My name is Christina, aka Jinx and this is my random fact: I have to smell everything in drink or eat, first, before I put it in my mouth. This is not only in private lol but in public.
Hey, I’m Emily. I recently lost my job so I’m going to go spend a couple of months volunteering oversees before getting back into the saddle!
