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.
I’m Keri and I’m addicted to shampoos and conditioners. If I go to the store, I go down the shampoo aisle to check out new ones. I probably have 15 bottles of unused shampoo in my bathroom cabinet that I’ll get to one day!
I hate feet. I think they are the most disgusting thing in the world. However, I am an Athletic Trainer, so I tape ankles for a living.
I speak Italian.
Hi. I’m Nichole. I’m addicted to buying clothes for my kids. They have way better wardrobes than me and I am actually jealous of my 6 months old wardrobe.
I’m Betty and I love Christmas. I’d have a tree in every room if I had the energy to put them up and then take them down or maybe I could just leave them up year round!!
Hi, I’m Michele and I have to have all the eggs in the carton in a line, fullest line to the left. No empty spaces allowed.
Hi, i’m Jennifer and I love smoothies but cannot and will not drink green smoothies! The color totally turns me off no matter how good it might taste.
I’m Shan Shan, and I can’t stand having hair on my face. Recently I thought I’d try bangs, since I like how they look on other people, and I had to pin my hair up every day until they grew long enough to tuck behind my ears.
I’m due with my second baby in exactly 4 weeks and totally forgot that I need to pack a hospital bag until my husband mentioned it last night – doh!
Hi, I am Helena. All 5 of my children were born while living in different houses. As a married couple we have only lived in 5 different houses. I never want to move again. I also have a weird thing about making left hand turns. I try to avoid them always!
I am obsessed with buying books. Like I have more than I could read in my life if I quit buying them today, which I would never do!
I devour cookbooks like a novel, but rarely cook from them. Not until I get a second review (I love when you cook from the books!)
Hi I’m Lindy. I am addicted to craft supplies. I have way too many and continuously buy more all the time.
Hi, I’m Amy and my oldest two children just left home. So I think I will throw myself into painting rooms and baking fall things.
I am a hobby hopper. Every year or two
Hi I’m Violet…I do this thing when I brush my teeth I have to count to 8 for each side, bottom, top, front, back…all 8 times each because if I don’t I don’t feel like my teeth are clean lol.
hi, I’m Andrea..and my kitchen is always a disaster during canning season. and because of that I just had a glass pan blow up in my hands cuz i had it on the stove and turned on the wrong burner. really scary. yes, my husband still loves me even though it burned a spot on our new formica counter top.
Hi, I’m Becky and I love to grow a garden. My favorite things to grow are tomatoes even though I hate to eat them. People say they are so much better homegrown but I think they just have more flavor that I don’t like. So, I grow them for my neighbors and the occasional opportunity that my husband might want a slice on a hamburger or something:)
I love getting random things. I love natural fiber yarn/knitting/collecting natural fiber yarn. Its borderline compulsive. I have cut back but still have enough to make socks and shawls for years after I have retired.
I’m Sara and I can’t take the front/top item of anything at the store. I always reach behind (or underneath) and grab a back item. I feel like those items are newer/cleaner/fresher. Drives my husband nuts. 🙂
P.S. and I love…love…love…cookbooks!!! Thanks
Wendy here…I love to bake! I make excuses to only do it at night-after my husband and two girls have gone to bed???? :0
I’m a mom of 4 who totally gets her hair wet at the pool!
Hi, my name is Jodi. I once was a Barbie Model for Mattel when I was a teenager. I almost threw up the morning of. I also have a space between my two front teeth. I kept wondering what the kids thought when they saw me. lol
Hi,my name is Tiffany and I’m addicted to Our Best Bites (promise I’m not sucking up) 🙂 People now know this so well that when I bring another AWESOME dish to something they say “Our Best Bites?” YUP! They’ve never let me down!
I’m Stacie and I’m very organized. When I got my label maker for Christmas, I nearly cried. One of the happiest days of my life 🙂
Hi I’m Jolynn and I love kitchen gadgets, hair and makeup products, reading, and I love to sew and make quilts and crafts.
I like Fall, the show Person of Interest, baking, and reading.
I’m Kim, and one of my favorite things to smell is the combination of lime & cilantro. Makes me happy.
Hi, I’m Juje. I hate using paper napkins or paper towels because something about crunching them against my fingernails gives me chills up and down my body. Not the good kind of chills. The kind where your teeth grind together. Weird much?
