Writing about my desire for neatly organized workspaces the other day has given me a kick in the pants, and I’ve started to declutter and better sort out the chaos of my workspaces.
When it comes to tools and ToolGuyd, I tend to retain things. Tools I love, tools I like, tools I know I’ll hate and could never bring myself to open, holiday specials that disappear from shelves before I can photograph them for review.
For tools I’ve reviewed, tested, or otherwise covered in content, what if a reader has a question? What if I need something for future comparisons? *I NEED to hold on to it!* – that’s the mentality I’m really trying to break from. Do I really need a 3 generations-ago cordless drill sample? Ideally, yes. But in reality, these things have become a hindrance.
Here’s the deal… there’s simply too much, and a lot of tools and samples need to go. I have a couple of boxes of “I should really give this away” tools and accessories. Well, if I post about, I’m now committed, aren’t I. So, it’s giveaway time!
And no, I can’t sell any of this stuff. Maybe I could in theory sell the personal or ToolGuyd purchases, but there are a lot of older tool samples, and those MUST be given away, donated, or otherwise freely parted from my possession. Yes, I know that a lot of reviewers and influencers sell tool review samples these days, but we don’t and won’t. If it enters my hands freely, it must leave my hands freely.
The Prize: A box of tools, with most in new or like-new condition. Is it a treat? Surprise!! Each box will have tools that I wish I had the space to keep, but you might also get something that you might not have an immediate need for. Some tools might have been featured on ToolGuyd a few years ago, or some might have been featured here recently.
Basically, the prize will be a mystery box of tools.
If you want to share feedback on the tools, that’s great, but I won’t require it. Continued testing is always appreciated.
Winner Selection: There will be one winner, at least to start. There might be additional winners as I work through my workspace cleanup process. Winner selection will be random.
How to Enter: Leave a comment here and make it interesting. Tell me about the tools you use most often, or the tools you could use. Maybe a Haiku poem? Or maybe tell me about a good tool experience you had recently, or a bad one. Which is your favorite tool brand, and why?
