summer savings

July 15th, 2009

Since I’m now giving away so much clutter for free, maybe it’s no big surprise that’s the way I acquired some of my clutter in the first place.  Such as:

Exhibit A:  For years I used certain brands of makeup only because a free gift came with my purchase, and I would wait to buy what I needed until the free offer came along. 

By now I’m cured of that habit, but I still have moments of weakness.  The last one was  at Nordstrom— a cute tote that came with a whole selection of free samples—everything still wrapped in the plastic it came in.

HOW TO WIN:  If you would like to have this item, please  let me know in a comment.   If you know someone else who might like it, I hope you’ll share this and let them know.

    This is the perfect item to put in our local women’s shelter. Women and children arrive sometimes with just the clothing on their backs. A little makeup would give a woman a sense of home and a little bit of self esteem as they try to rearrange and take control of their lives.

    This is a very cute summer bag. I would love to have this bag. I would then pass it on to my son’s girlfriend who is ready to go to fashion school.
    Thank you

    Darryle, I’m chuckling because I am trying to break myself of the SAME habit. My closet is filled with Clinique & Lancôme totes! Certainly I don’t need this; I’m writing to give my vote to Ruth, for the women’s shelter.

    This would be a great bag to include in my “gift baskets” for seniors. I make quite a few baskets and deliver them to senior citizen centers for their prizes during bingo, bunco and other games. They love the baskets. Thanks.

    What a great idea! I am almost inspired to start cleaning out my clutter.
    Unfortunately nothing as cool to give away on my blog.

    I have been starting to have contests at my business to help get rid of old discontinued merchandise. This way everyone wins!

    Looks like you will have a tough job choosing a winner. Good luck!

    I love that the winner of this is giving this to the women’s shelter— What a great idea— Iknow I have a couple of these “gift with purchases” that I too have never touched—now I know what to do with them! A great tip to pass on!!

    Thanks for selecting me! I am very new to Cluttercast, so do you need my address? What is the next step in this process?
