Eastern heavy PIF box on 10/05/2013 10:17:43 MDT Print View

The box weighed 8 lb 2 oz when it left my place. Seems like people are adding more than they are taking. That's really cool.

OOOhhh! I cant wait!
Looks like I get to upsize the box, Reggie says its about to bust a gut.

Fantastic how the PIF thing has exploded.

By the way I have a few 4T size kids pants/tops I can add if anyone has a child that size?
Let me know if you do I might just PIF direct to you rather than clutter the box.

Spreadsheet highlight on 10/05/2013 17:30:14 MDT Print View

To highlight your name in the spreadsheet, left click the square with your first name, then without releasing, drag right to the zip code box, release. There is now a heavy blue line around your first name box and a lighter line around your entire info boxes.

On the top of the sheet, third line, are a whole bunch of odd little figures. Just to the right of middle is a tipped bucket with a drop falling out (black and white figure). Left click this, then left click your preferred color.

Got it today on 10/07/2013 16:17:59 MDT Print View

I have already torn into this thing! Found a neck gaiter and exofficio bandana and some silk ultralite weight gloves for the wife to run in.

I will have this back out tomorrow. Still has some nice stuff but it definitely needs a new infusion of choice goodies. So I will post my additions in the morning.

Well I took and I gave. I really waited excitedly to get into the box. But you know the best and most exciting part is going thru my stuff and giving some away! So Fun.

Box will be heading for Tennessee tomorrow morning.

Oh ok, I did list removed items in earlier post above but I saw some people list items add too. I added confusion free of charge ;)

Can't wait to see the look on my wife's face when she sees "another box of stuff came in" hahaha.

Yeah isn't that something always having to explain yourself when another package is sitting at the door.?.?.?

Package on 10/08/2013 06:31:23 MDT Print View

I've found the key is to not let them see what's inside and say it's for "Christmas"

Well I removed my pic and will try and "follow the rules" next time ;)

My wife told me when I got home last night that "I had a Box" with a bit of the what the heck have you bought now tone.
But the wife is getting much better at guessing the size to price ratio.
Since purchasing some Cuben items this year she realized that smaller packages could mean bigger $$

There are no 'rules' just my suggestions to keep it mysterious and fun :) I am glad you guys are having a good time with this - it really makes me happy to see all of the good will being passed around.
