Holy Moly- I've Got Swag
Now first let me say, when I opened the front door today I did the pee pee dance when I saw the box. I knew what was in it ( giggling with excitement) - It was my SWAG and it was CHEAP! Need a business card, I got it covered. Having a bad hair day? I have a hat. Do your keys need a cute accessory? I got a keychain. Need to make a quick note of what coupons I need to print? I got a notepad. Need something to write it down with? I got a pen. Need to carry all your self promoting, shameless swag around? I got a tote. Want to walk around pimping your own website? I got a shirt.
I know, it is a bit much. I am small time. I am a mommy blogger. I wipe boogas and keep dishpan hands. That is why it is SOOOO freakin' awesome! ( still grinning)
Why? See I love a deal. I also love a deal when there is humor and self indulgence as a bonus.
Here is the story:
One day last week, ( quick service -huh?) I was reading some of my deal hunter blogs. One of the girls posted this company that obviously likes to give things away for FREE and as best I can tell they have no issue with it. Crazy? ummm I thought so, but WHO am I to judge crazy. I sat down and picked me out a housewife logo and played with the print. I thought I was just getting business cards, but since I am a computer genius ahem... I started poking around and there was all kinds of goodies ripe for the picking. So I picked the low hanging fruit, added a few things to offset the shipping and 20 bucks later while honestly holding my breath over this too good to be true offer ... I got a BOX full of goodies. Now did I "need" to spend the $20 dollars? No, of course not, but I gotta tell ya... this little brown box has made my day. I will also tell ya this, if I can figure out a way to produce more with nominal fees- my children will be walking advertisements...
