Conferences are always good for odd bits of swag: mouse pads, Post-It notes, bathtub toys.
I was a little more selective at this year’s Financial Blogger Conference, because my suitcase wasn’t very big.
Too, I kept a couple of items for myself:
RepayDebt.org’s “Slash Debt” T-shirt, which bore a piggy-bank head with long black curls and a top hat. (Get it? I didn’t, either, until my daughter reminded me of the existence of the Guns ’n’ Roses musician Slash.)
A squeezable foam “stress bull” – not because I’m stressed, but because I thought it might amuse DF’s granddaughter. He looks a bit incongruous in the cloth Noah’s Ark, since he’s twice as big as the other critters, but I’m sure they’ll work something out.
Purple socks printed with stylized pennies, from Pennyhoarder.com. They’re reversible to plain purple if you care what people think about your accessories. (Hint: I think they’re cool.)
But I still came away with a few things someone will want.
