Today we're going to play a game. I'm going to give you an imaginary $500. (Think Monopoly) I want you to use the Amazon Search Box in my sidebar to look for and select $500 worth of green, organic, all-natural, or sustainable products that you would like to buy. Sound like fun?
I'll give you two weeks to submit your shopping cart to me via email. No, not a real shopping cart, just a list of what you picked out and the prices. The owner of the list that comes closest to spending exactly $500, without going over, wins a Chicobag, a reusable shopping bag that tucks into its own little pouch and goes in your pocket, backpack or purse. Don't worry. If there's a tie, I'll give away a bunch of them, so get going.
Why are we playing this game? To help me better understand what you are interested in. It's sort of like a poll, but instead of answering boring questions, you get to go shopping. Who knows, maybe you'll find something you can't live without. More power to you if you do.
It has happened to me more than once. When I search for the ads I place in posts, I'm always looking for something relevant to the topic--you know, useful stuff. You'd be surprised at how many of them have actually end up here.
It's a shot gun start, so get going NOW! All lists to me at CarrieLeaJohnson@gmail.com by September 7, 2009. Have fun!
