Cash For Mama's Junk?

Dear President Obama,

I don't have a clunker to cash in on, but I do have a few things sitting around here that I was wondering if you'd consider taking off my hands. Okay?
  • About 30 pair of jeans in varying sizes.
  • Some kimonos purchased during my All-Things-Asian phase.
  • All the orange and brown lipsticks that come in those Clinique Gift With Purchase Bags.
  • All my tight white t-shirts.
  • All of my children's SAT and AP Prep books.
  • All my sparkly hair scrunchies.
  • All my springform cake pans.
  • An exercise bike.
  • An ab roller.
  • 6 yoga mats and 5 yoga videos.
  • My American Express and Visa bills.
  • My mortgage.
I know you're busy and all, but I figured that now I could get some help. Then I could go out and do my part for the economy. I look forward to hearing from you soon

Kind regards,
Mental P Mama

PS--Give Michelle and the girls my best.

Let me know if he responds. I've got some junk in my trunk that needs a new home.

BHE stole my line!!

If no cash....A yard sale on the White House lawn maybe?

Oh, can I add to the list?!?

I think NNG has a great idea...one massive yardsale on the White House lawn. That'll raise some funds.

Linda said...

Maybe the one going on in Ohio can extend itself into DC onto the White House lawn. I have lots to get rid of too, but I guess I need to start going through it!

Great list MPM!

Try praying to god for those exact same things then compare the results!

Caution Flag said...

Let's see: do those things still work? Could they continue to work for a few more years? Does your ab roller get only 17 mpg? Have you had them licensed and insured for a year? Okay then! A billion for you, MPM. It's just that easy.

Keetha said...

Genius. What a great idea. You beat all of us to it, meaning he will probably respond to you first. So let us know how that works out.

Laura ~Peach~ said...

lol yeah right...i make a pasta dish in my spring form pan... never made a cake in it LOL

Deb said...

I must be the only person that uses spring pans!
Why does Clinique put those awful colors in the gift bags anyway? They're awful.

let me know if he responds. I'll hit him up for a job!d

Jeans multiply faster than rabbits, don't they?

Ellen said...

Of course we traded in a '97 car last summer for a new one and only got $1,500 for the trade. Always a day late and a dollar short.

BluesVox said...

My spring form pan broke :(

Living on the Spit said...

I like your idea here...and if he says yes, I wanna join in as well!

Joanie said...

I want to join too! I have some very valuable junk to trade in.

Gin said...

This is hilarious! Let me know how it goes because I have a few things to contribute myself!

TSannie said...

You are too funny!
(MISS you! Definitely having BFF withdrawal...All will change soon, tho!)

imom said...

I have a bunch of shirts in various sizes I could add to the mix... I love the big yard sale on the white house lawn idea! Brilliant.

Daryl said...

You are very funny.. got any size 8s? Happy to take them off your hands.

Lisa said...

I have enjoyed reading your blog. It seems we have similar things that make us laugh, like Beer Summits and such. I've got some of those little hahas over on my facebook. But,my firstborn is leaving for college in two weeks. It's been an emotional summer! Your kids are beautiful! I loved the quote you have about our children not being our children..I needed that...I keep having visions of the day my son was born. Because my hubby worked at the hospital, the nurses gave my son to him to hold before me. Finally the doc said..."will someone please let mama see her son before he goes to college?" And now he is....:-(

Starwoodgal said...

I really like this!

imbeingheldhostage said...

Oh, I didn't even know he was considering other possibilities-- I'm running to my closets now!

Snooty Primadona said...

Well, you know I have lots of junk to get rid of. I do like the idea about having a garage sale on the White House lawn. However, I'm afraid it would cost me a fortune, which would be counter productive... I'm just tossing most of it.

Grandma J said...

I want to unload on BHO too.

Flea said...

All but the last two can be unloaded on CraigsList! What fun!

Pouty Lips said...

I have a grouchy old bald clunker I'd like to trade in. Any room for him on the lawn?

Lynne's Somewhat Invented Life said...

I'm pretty sure he wants those sparkly hair scrunchies. I'll bet he'd try them on, late at night, in the closet. Yah, he would. Send them right over.

kim-d said...

If you toss me $25 out of your proceeds--because I am ABSOLUTELY sure Prez Obama will respond to your request in the affirmative--I will throw in a recumbent exercise bike, barely used! ;)

Hey, why shouldn't they say yes to Cash for Mama's Junk? They've certainly spent money in ways more frivolous that that!

noble pig said...

Can I my crap to your pile?

Magpie said...

Does that exercise bike get less than 16mpg?
