Everything must go: Giveaways Galore!

I go to a lot of travel-related events. And I seem to collect a lot of stuff at these events. I keep a decent amount of it because, well, I’m a geek and I like it. But I simply have too much. And that’s good news for all of you.

Most of the stuff to give away....
Most of the stuff to give away….

From amenity kits (many airlines) to USB power charges to gift bags and Birch Box, I’ve got a whole bunch of stuff that I no longer have room for in my apartment. So I’ve got a eighteen boxes from the USPS and I’m packing it up. Will your name/address be on one of the shipments?

Packaged up and ready to go. Just need someone to send it all to!

I’m not taking specific requests. Actually at this point I couldn’t because I have no idea what is in each box. If your name gets picked you’ll get one of the boxes of goodies at random. Want in on the deal? Just leave a comment below. I’ll pick the winners at random at some point after noon EST on 4 January 2015 and get the boxes in the mail later in the week.


UPDATE: Comments are closed and winners have been chosen via random.org and notified via email. If I don’t hear back from them in the next few days I’ll pick new ones. Thanks for playing, everyone!

  4. Generous of you to share and how fun! Old with the old, in with the new! Happy New Year!

  5. FF SWAG bag. Fun idea! Thx for the offer. Keep posting your great ideas and Happy New Year 2015.

  6. Late arrival – I had to watch the Rose Parade before doing anything else.

    Seth, you are wrong about Singapore, it’s a wonderful place to visit. Food, gardens and mudskippers: perfect

  7. My husband will not appreciate the additional stuff in our apartment, but I will! Thanks!

  8. I didn’t get an amenity kit on my last international flight, so maybe luck will make good a few days later! Seth, I’m glad to help clean up your house w/o actually helping!

  9. Thanks for the offer. There’s still room in my big pile of travel-related crap for more.
