One person’s person’s trash is another person’s treasure!ย  Inspired by the Birchbox that I received today, I put together a little box to giveaway. These are ALL great products, and I just thought it would be fun to give someone the chance to win them, because I totally won’t use them!

  • One pack of immunogum
  • good clean love VEGAN lube. you know you want to try it! happy valentine’s day!
  • acai energy chew
  • black thick headband by twistband (warning, i did actually place this on my head to determine that my head is too large for this object. i am clean. i promise.)
  • dr. lipp original nipple balm for lips
  • plum kids organic mashups (ok, i threw this in the box to make it mommy themed!)
  • beauty protector protect & detangle leave in conditioner
  • julep evangeline
  • celestial seasonings green tea. everyone puts tea in their dang boxes.
  • and coupons for glade expressions fragrance mist starter kit and oil diffuser kits. because i thought i needed something that appeared to be an information card.
  • No, this box does not contain any actual trash.
  • Come back to the blog on Monday to see the AWESOME branding you will receive if you are a winner!
  • Also, I found a tasting square of Dagoba xocolatl spicy chocolate to put in the box (yep, i buy it from amazon. cheapest/easiest). MY FAVORITE. MY PRECIOUS.

    The second I saw that Evangeline nail polish I was like “I NEED THAT!” And the Beauty Protector detangler, because my hair is thick and tangly. Love your blog!

  • Christine H.

    Hi! Found your blog through MUT!

  • Christine H.

    Forgot to add – I would love to try the detangler my hair is long and thick and I’m always on the hunt for a better one! Everything else would be a great bonus!

  • Jen K

    I have never heard of Beauty Protector detangler. I do need that. Between my daughter’s incessant pulling, post-pregnancy hair falling and my lack of any interest in not going bald – I have the worst tangled hair ever.

  • Jamie

    I would love that Evangeline polish, the detangler, and even the lanolin filled nipple lip tool. I’m seriously intrigued. The chocolate is also a lovely addition!

  • Cindy Loo

    Treasure? Nail polish! Trash? Maybe the detangler–my hair is pretty fine so it doesn’t tangle too much ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Heather

    Trash would be the detangler maybe…everything else sseems like treasure ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Allison

    The tea, the nail polish and the headband would be treasures. I’d probably give the glade coupons to someone else.

    • Brandy


      I am seriously doing this every month. It is totally cracking me up!!

  • Wehaf

    Trash: glade coupons.
    Treasure: Immunogum, even if just for the novelty factor!

  • laurie nykaza

    What does Dagoba xocolatl spicy chocolate taste like?? Sounds good would love the box . I like trying new products the balm would be great the weather is causing me to have dry lips.

    • Brandy

      It is dark spicy (chilies) chocolate with nibs. And it’s organic!

  • Lisa

    One pack of immunogum is my trash, julep nail polish is my treasure

  • Erin V

    Ooh I would love the headband, polish, & lip balm!

  • jessica edwards

    immunogum trash, nailpolish treasure

  • Joy

    All treasure!!

  • Ashley Morrissey

    The coupons are my trash. The leave in conditioner is my treasure!

  • Wendy Pesce

    Trash- nothing, it all looks great to me!

  • My treasure is the lip balm (slightly confused by the nipple reference!) and my trash is the fruit squeeze (no little ones in this house anymore).

    • Brandy

      Cathy – It’s just lanolin. It’s a marketing thing.

  • kelly mcgrew

    glade coupons would be my trash, celestial seasonings my treasure!

  • Mary Dailey

    Is there really such a thing as trash? I should be on the hoarding show. I’m thinking the headband COULD be the treasure, but now I’m worried that my head is too big also! LOL

  • april taylor

    My trash = acai energy chew

    I’m not interested in energy products.

    • Brandy

      Word. That’s the one thing I don’t like about the health boxes really. The energy stuff is either sugar (aka the devil) or speed in some form.

  • latanya

    trash acai energy chew
    treasure dr. lipp original nipple balm for lips

  • Pamela Halligan

    I consider most of it treasure: immunogum, lube, acai energy chew, dr. lipp, conditioner, green tea, and coupon. Headbands just don’t work for me and not sure kids will like the organic mash ups.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  • angelia

    Trash: Maybe the headband. I too have a problem with them fitting.

    Treasure: The tea, and lube…

  • Sacha Schroeder

    Honestly I don’t think anything would be trash! I love it all!

    Melinda T

    Treasure-everything else!

  • Robin A

    Trash: glade coupons.
    Treasure: acai energy chew

  • Claire

    Nail polish ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  • Kelli Smith

    Tash: Coupons Treasure: Nail Polish

  • molli vandehey

    the coupons are my trash ’cause i probably would not buy those , but i will give them to someone else…. the spicy chocolate is my treasure ’cause my kids won’t steal it away ๐Ÿ™‚

  • shirley

    detangler is a treasure and the chocolate might not be for me

  • shirley

    detangler is my treasure the chocolate might not be for me

  • Raine

    I’d like the Dr. Lipp and the headband, I don’t need the mashups and I’ll give the tea to my mom.

    natalie nichols

    I don’t think any of that is trash. I would find a use for every last thing.

    Saundra M

    Treasure is the beauty protector protect & detangle leave in conditioner
    and julep evangeline. Trash would be tea (I hate tea) or any kid stuff as I have none at home (al grown).


    TRASH- That lube. haha! funny though.
    treasure! all the rest! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Deborah

    Cool idea for a giveaway! To me, it is all treasure except for the “coupons for glade expressions fragrance mist starter kit and oil diffuser kits”. Only thing that our family wouldn’t use!
    At the top of the treasure: Organic mashups! Lots of treasures!

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  • Amanda Rauch

    I think you should review the hot dog/bun warmer thing that looks like a toaster. My son is leaving for college in the fall and I thought it would be a perfect dorm present. But I don’t want to buy it if it is cruddy.

    • Brandy

      HAHAHAHHAHAHAH!! Prob not on my list. We eat dogs & sausages without the bun! Check

  • kemberley crosswhite

    trash- lube lol
    treasure- the headband or the lip balm ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sue Hull

    • Brandy

  • Sue Hull

  • Tabby L

    coupons trash & nail polish treasure. Thanks for the chance! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Helen May

    I like the conditioner, my hair needs all the help I can give it. I’m not familair with most of the products so I’m not sure about the trash part….someone around here would use it….it wouldn’t go to waste.

  • Jayme Hennessy
