I want to add a million disclaimers or qualifiers to the phrase, “I am a hoarder.” I want to sputter out, “but not as bad at the people on the show,” or “I used to be so much worse!” or whatever. But the truth of the matter is that I really do have the heart and soul of a hoarder.
Hoarding and moving to the extent that I do obviously mesh like peace, quiet and Moxie – which is to say, not at all.
I try and tame the propensity for accumulation of objects that delight me by (trying to) keep only really small, useful stuff – something that I can argue my way out of an institution. When they say (in that gentle, professional voice), Meriah…you can’t walk through your place… we need to do something, I’ll respond with, “but they are SMALL! and USEFUL!”
Magnets on the Cheap did not know this about me when they approached me with an offer to review one of their magnetic products. They didn’t know that the one rather massive indulgence that my hoarding heart allows with ease is MAGNETS. I save MAGNETS!
Lots and lots of them!
Here a magnet, there a magnet, everywhere, a magnet-magnet
I love them and it’s not going to be funny or pretty when we go on the Pan Am Overland and I have to leave them behind.
What www.magnetsonthecheap.com offered me was this:
It’s on the fridge now until we are ready to go. Let me say it again: I love this thing. It’s strong, it’s super magnetic-y. It’s in full colour, gorgeous imagery. They produced exactly what I wanted, which I think is pretty amazing.
They are offering YOU a giveaway too – a super-snazzy $50 gift card for stuff on their site, www.magnetsonthecheap.com . The only requirement is that you have to be a US resident (excluding Alaska and Hawaii too, because of shipping costs).
GIVEAWAY WILL END ON JULY 9 at 12:00am (my time)
