The Great Swag Giveaway

So I’m finally attempting to clean my house, fruitless pursuit with a toddler I know. It feels like all I do is pick up one thing after another and the Little Guy is only 14 months old! What am I going to do when there are more of them than there is of me!? Assign chores! That’s what I’ll do. The minute they can pick up a trash can that trash can will be theirs until they leave for college. But back to the subject at hand…

In an effort to get rid of stuff I decided to simply give away a lot of the swag I received from BlogHer. I have posted pictures below of groups of items I will be giving away to whoever wants them. I will only mail the items within the USA, unless of course you are nearby in which case I will hand deliver. ; ) Whatever is left over will simply go to Goodwill.

Here’s the rules:

  • If you want an item comment below and tell me the item number you desire and something funny you would do with it. For example, “I want the sleep mask (item #8) so I can imagine what a blind person feels like.”
  • One comment per item.
  • For extra entries towards your desired item Tweet or Facebook this post with, “Want some FREE Swag from BlogHer? Check out, via @Wilkinsonjk #BlogHer” then post an additional comment with a link to your tweet or facebook status.

The winners will be chosen at random but remember you can get up to THREE entries towards an item if you really want it. So let the comments begin!

  1. I would love the sleep mask to finally get a night of rest and relaxation away from the office drama. = )

  2. I want #8, too! Then my head can be a Tempurpedic sandwich at night.

  3. Oooh #5….It would help me tell what time it is….other than “Shim Sham Time” of course!!! 🙂

  4. And #6….these would help me “FLIP, FLOP, and Fly”!!! 🙂

  5. Ooo I want #1 so I can carry Elmo around to camp again:) Also the figurines for Sammy to play with (maybe new diaper bag toys?)and #2 so Samantha can color and then rip out the colored pics!!!! Also the color pencils for my own coloring relaxation!

    • I don’t need any “swag” but have an awesome quote I though you might enjoy: “Cleaning when you have a toddler is like trying to nail jello to the wall.” So true! I have three now, and the 5 year old is queen of messes due to her love of crafts. Bits of paper, stickers and other craft paraphernalia EVERYWHERE. Someday, SOMEDAY we will have clean houses again!

  6. Perhaps #5 has magical properties and could get me places [gasp!] on time!

  7. I’m convinced that #9 will get Eric to cook dinner once in a while…and nothing says “Happy Birthday” and “I love you” better than a Brawny apron!

  8. Thea Farmer says:

    What great giveaways. Your consistent posting is inspiring me. So glad you are doing this!

  9. I would love The Waterpik (#4) because it would be the perfect tool to water the Bonsai tree that decorates my bathroom. I have Botanophobia and would rather not go near it, but it still needs to be watered, so a tool that can shoot water from several feet away would be great.
