UPDATE: Congrats to the winner on July 2nd – Lance at Money, Life & More!
You all won’t believe this. Remember the Ode to My Miche post a couple of weeks ago? I took William’s advice (from Drop Dead Money) in the comments and contacted Miche. I asked them if they’d be interested in sponsoring a review or a giveaway and they asked for my site’s stats. They accepted BFS into their Miche Blogger Outreach Program, sent some shells my way to review, PLUS they included a brand new bag and a couple of shells for a giveaway for all of you too! If you were ever interested in a hobby job, feel free to check out Miche’s work from home opportunities.
Okay, here’s my full rundown of my classic Miche bag. I’m not really a purse person but a lady in her late twenties with a mini-backpack does start to look weird. So I started looking into purses. I needed a bag that could hold my large wallet, brush, the random crap I accumulate, and anything my husband hands me. BUT, I didn’t want a huge bag since it is a pain to lug around. So when Mr. BFS and I saw a commercial for a purse that looked like it could handle my luggage and could change its look in a few seconds, I was hooked.
I am happy to say that this is one product on a tv commercial that lived up to its hype. The bag opens up to hold a lot and the shells can be changed out pretty easily. Most of the shells just snap onto both sides via magnets and only takes a few seconds to switch. A few of the newer shells sort of go on like a sock and are held in place by the same magnets.
Here is a view of the inside:
All of that said, onto the giveaway!!! Miche was awesome enough to send me a few things for one of you.
Here is what you can win:
- Brand New Black Classic Miche Bag
- Hope (Argyle) Shell
- Choice Between the new Janelle Shell or the retired Kelsie Shell
You have a choice on the second option because I thought some of you may appreciate a snap on shell more than the sock on shells, so I wanted you to have a choice. Here is how they look.
Classic Black Miche Bag
Hope (Argyle) – White with Green Lettering – Fitted Shell
Janelle – Black and Dark Blue – Fitted Shell
Kelsie – Brown and Pink – Easy Snap Shell
I will ship your bag and the two shells (Hope and Your Choice).
Here is how to enter the giveaway:
- Leave a comment below – one comment per person
- Include which of the options you would want if you win (Janelle or Kelsie)
That’s it! I will use random.org to choose a winner. Giveaway ends July 1, 2012!
UPDATE: If someone outside the USA or Canada wins, I will Paypal $75 to that winner since shipping is insane. So make sure you can receive money via Paypal if you live outside the USA.

FYI: I worked at a dead end cubicle job from 2005-2011 for about $30,000 a year. I went self-employed in July 2011 and make between $80,000-$100,000 through blogging, a rental home, and professional pet sitting. If you’d like to start your own site (link to my free step-by-step guide), I highly suggest checking out Bluehost (my referral link with a nice discount for you). I even have all of my favorite tools on a resource page – I hope they help you too.
This all gives me the time to be with my aging family members, the flexibility to stay close with my friends and family, and it should help if we finally get pregnant too! Please contact me any time at budgetingfunstuff*at*gmail*dot*com with questions or just to brainstorm! I’d love to help!
