And The Winner of the FoundIt! Giveaway Is…

Last week I wrote a post about FoundIt!– a company that makes little stickers and tags that you place on valuables. If you lose an item with a sticker, hopefully the “finder” will either go to the FoundIt! site or text the unique number to set up a reunion with the item’s owner.

Not only did the kind folks at FoundIt! offer me a subscription to try out, they also offered a subscription for me to give away to one of my readers.

A couple of ways to enter were by following me on Twitter and Facebook. I want to thank everyone that signed up. (Thanks to everyone following me prior to the contest too!)

Before announcing the winner, I want to remind everyone to check back for my post about my FoundIt! Test. I have been “losing” items in random places and giving them a little time to (hopefully) find their way home. I even “lost” a set of keys at a rest stop on the way home from my recent Lakes to Locks & Saratoga trip!

I also want to thank FoundIt! again for reaching out and offering a subscription to myself and one of my readers!

And the winner is … Delta Gold Flyer
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Congrats to Delta Gold Flyer!!! I’ll be contacting you to get the info needed to get you your FoundIt! subscription.


I want to thank everyone for participating in my contest.
