OK, finally catching up with my BOC from May and most recent one from July. Let’s start with the May haul, which I earned playing the game where you elongate platforms to get the monkey safely to each island. In case anyone thought the games weren’t worth playing.
It contained (clockwise-ish from top left):
- Box of 100x medical examination vinyl gloves
- 7x individually-packed n95 masks
- Hand blender
- Woot! bag
- Woot! screamin’ monkey toy
- Pair of gray chinos that actually fit me (34x32)!
- 2x giant novelty pens
- Electric nose & ear hair trimmer
- Fram motorcycle air filter
- 2x extension cables for headphones/audio
The pants alone made this box worth it for me - good fit, comfy, and classy enough to wear to work. I threw the masks and gloves in the first aid kit I keep in my car. The giant novelty pens were gifted to my 3-year-old niece, and the blender went to her mom (my sister), who will actually use it. I put the air filter on Craigslist for free and it was gone from my front porch within an hour. The cables went in my “random cables” bin, the trimmer unfortunately did not work and so was tossed, and the monkey, after sitting in a catnip-filled bag for a few days, is now a fun cat toy. Thanks Woot!
On to July, which I won during the latest Woot-off.
Again, clockwise-ish from top left:
- Pair of men’s khaki shorts (waist 40)
- Mini brush & dust pan set
- 4x twist grips
- Woot! bag
- Box of Kleenex brand kleenex
- Double-sided stunt R/C vehicle
- Pair of memory foam fuzzy lined men’s slippers (size 11)
- 1x roll of BamTime TP
- Woot! pen
- 2x Belkin surge protectors
By far, the jackpot of this box is the slippers. They fit and are the comfiest things I’ve ever had on my feet. I’m luxuriating in them right now, in fact. I’d need to gain about 100lbs for the shorts to fit, so they’re already Goodwill bound. The kleenex, TP (I ordered a case of this exact stuff from Woot! just a couple months back), and pen are everyday essentials, always happy to get some for free. I gave the mini brush & dust pan and surge protectors to my sister, who’s a teacher, as she can use both in her classroom. The twist grips seem like something that will come in handy someday in some way, so I put them in my tool bucket until such an opportunity presents itself. And finally, the R/C car will be another gift for my niece, though in reality I expect her dad (my brother in law) to get more use and enjoyment out of it than her. So again, thanks Woot! Always fun to get one of these in the mail, already counting down the days until I’m eligible again and the opportunity presents itself!
I’d be remiss if I concluded without noting that, in addition to some of the various contents becoming cat toys, my kitties get their absolute favorite thing in the world every time a BoC arrives at my place: an empty cardboard box. To wit:
