AND if I might politely add: I'm on the woot sites; but I might miss the the Bandolier of Carrots b/c it was posted on another location, like facebook or twitter! #frustrated

That was AWESOME! Not expecting anything like that in my bag (unless my crap came from skemmis's house), but hoping is part of the fun.

edit: This was the first one:



for clarification, although the picture of the sale sign is in fact a link - don't click. you must type in the bit.ly to get to the I WANT ONE button.

If you're not going to refresh, then don't, come back tomorrow. If you have ANY clue about woot offs and Bandolier of Carrots, then you might have an inking of understanding that IF you want a Bandolier of Carrots you WILL constantly refresh. Be it for a new item, a listing at midnight, or whatever; it is woot's game and you will play it or you won't get the prize.

As for those scouring the site, I suppose there is no harm in it, as they do enjoy the occassional game of hide and seek, but just wait for stuff to reload, look for the post-it note style image on the product image and type in the bit.ly URL (CaSE sEnsiTivE) into your browser and hope it isn't sold out. Maybe tomorrow check back on the computer one to see if it is up again, or not whatever.

And the dude that got the computer, you lucky SOB! Gratz and enjoy it. I'd lie if I said I wasn't jealous, but good on you man and best to you in your studies!

Let's see the quality impulse buys!

I'm really trying to snag one this time, but apparently I'm too much of a first world problem. I thought the woot-off page would /become/ the Bracket of Cards when it was ready, not just the image would have a link. I missed 2 of them this way! >.<

I just looked up my Stuff Bought list & I have a Bag from almost every September Woot-off since I joined. I have missed a lot of others in there, but Since '09 I have 3 of the 4 September ones. The only one I am missing was a year I was out of town on business when it happened. Hopefully I can get one this time to keep my streak alive.
For the earlier comments to post opening videos/photos of what we got, I had been using this site http://wootsack.bfusion.net/ (but I see they don't have one for this week's yet) and commenting as I could here. It was great to see what everyone got, even when it was all the same.

Really hoping the woot staffers have some pretty cool hobbies.

Maybe one of them is a massive hoarder and they are trying to break the habbit by unloading some of their stuff on us.

Wow. What could be better than a bundle of carrots, except a bundle that has genuine carrots from a Woot employee's very home. I ask you, who could possibly have better carrots than a Woot employee!!??

I always see cats in photos, but I only have a dog at home. I can definitely get her in the photo. If you need a cat, my posting might be delayed until I can get out to my parent's farm. If that is the case, I could probably get calves in the picture too. Maybe a cat on a calf. I could probably have a cat on a horse too.

Dogs are great! They usually photo bomb with their butts since they're busy sniffing everything.

People are just crazy for wanting this. They have resorted to asking staff to bring in junk from home to sell. Really people? 8 buck for truly junk!?!?! I was one of the unfortunate to buy one of the kids bags of sadness. No more for me! Good luck to the rest

I love Bags of Crap. Not because I expect to get anything great, but it's a surprise- it's fun. This is the same reason a few days ago I subscribed to a company that sends a goody (food) box to you every month for $10. It's nice to have little things to look forward to.

Also, I hope they do more monkeys this woot off. I'm tired of my dog dragging in disembodied limbs and empty monkey husks. It's creepy.

Well, two crap URLs. There's more than one crap for sale each time. (I don't know how many. That's above my pay grade.)

I see that PemberDucky donated some toilet bowl covers. She cares enough to sanitize the bowl before she flushes the contents to us.

Maybe TT will send me some special crap to go with the bidets I ordered earlier this week.

Would A-Rod stuff qualify?

Unfortunately, I don't think I could find someone to play Sven and say, "I will pump you up!" for the unboxing video, but maybe I think I can figure out something unique.

Too bad we don't have a forum exchange where we could get SmartPost shipping rates so we can box crap to other woot faithfuls... I'm doing a renovation and I have sooooo much stuff to give. Good Will or the Veterans are getting a large pile in the next coming week.

Got one! Woohoo! I had a feeling it would go up after the hour of shirts and my theory was right. Can't wait! I'll be sure to post the contents of my bag as soon as it arrives!!

Do I post it to this thread here, or will there be a thread for each individual bag?

I'm sooo excited!!!

I was ready. I had half the URL in buffer. I was refreshing the page like a madman. When the item finally changed I pasted http://bit.ly/, typed the rest of the URL in in and got the "Sold Out" button before mywoot even announced there was a new item.

I can't beat three seconds.
