Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

A lot of advertising on Facebook drives me crazy.  In fact, most of it drives me up the wall.

Avon, Scentsy, diet shakes, etc., etc., etc.  The list is long.


A week or so ago, a former student posted a contest for her part-time business, Thirty-one.  (Thirty-one sells bags, purses, and organizers.)  Said former student posted a picture of one of the large totes full of flip flops.  The contest was to guess how many pairs of flip flops were in the tote, and the prize was a Utility Tote.  You posted your guess in the comments under the photo.  Easy.

I looked at the picture and looked at the seven or eight guesses ahead of me.  I took a wild guess and typed in 72 pairs of flip flops.

And I won.  Exactly, on-the-nose!

My former student delivered to Tiny Town.  And....

Voila!  She let me pick the design:  black and white polka dots!

I doubt I ever would have bought this, but boy am I loving it.  Quite happy to store all of my school things in one place.  It's easy to move from one room to another, and I can almost see my dining room table again. I've got big plans for this tote when school starts.

OK.  No more complaining about advertising on Facebook.  I've had to eat my words--and I can't afford the extra calories!

Happy Friday!  Happy 1st Day of Summer!

Great minds think alike! I have a tote just like this (my daughter K gave it to me). It is my "church bag"- everything I collect during the week and need to take to church on Sunday goes in it- no rushing around Sunday morning to find everything! I love the 31 bags. I just have to spread out buying them! BJB

I have this bag and use it as my "back and forth to school everyday bag." It IS perfect for school stuff! You'll love it!
