Ye Olde Random Giveaway

I’m still cleaning out the closet in my office, which means that there’s any number of goodies in there which I am rediscovering, and on the heels of each discovery is the same thought, “Um, I really don’t need this.” But my urge to declutter is your chance to win, so that’s (possibly) good news for you!

Okay, so, the thing I was excited to find in there for giveaway is a pair of Cleatskins, these Croc-like overshoes designed to be worn over athletic cleats. If you don’t have a kid you’re probably wondering why in the world anyone would want these, but the truth is that every mother who’s ever had clumps of turf left all over her car and kitchen can attest that these are simply brilliant in terms of minimizing mess. These were sent to me a while back when I reviewed them for Cool Mom Picks, and then my son promptly quit soccer. So. Brand new pair of Cleatskins, in (unisex) royal blue, size Small (shoe size 2-3.5).

That’s a pretty sweet prize, but also somewhat limiting because of the size thing. I didn’t want to offer up just one prize when so many people probably don’t have a way to use it. So, as a second—but completely unrelated—option, I also have a Bounce Outdoor Fresh Dryer Bar available. (That link is to a double-pack at Amazon; I just have one.) This baby sticks in your dryer drum and provides static control and freshness for four months, and I think I picked this up at BlogHer last year right before my daughter’s dermatologist told us to stop using fabric softeners of any kind. So.

Two cool products; two winners! Want to win one of them? It’s easy! First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment telling me which one you’d like to win by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, July 26th, 2010 to be entered. If you don’t tell me which one you want your entry is invalid. As always, I’ll use the random number generator and otherwise harness the karma of the universe to determine the winners.

Ready? Go!
