Fab Freebie: Let The Rain Fall Down

***This giveawy is no longer accepting entries***

By now you all probably know that we try to make the best out of a seemingly bad situation. So when someone tries to rain on your parade, what do we say? Catch it in a rain barrel and put that H2O to good use!

Which is why we’re super excited to bring you this week’s giveaway sponsored by The Rain Barrel Company. They sell a range of pro-sustainability products (composters, etc.) and this week they’re offering up one of their namesake products to one lucky reader…


Yup it’s a fancy pre-made professional rain barrel which means you all can jump on the collect-your-own-rainwater bandwagon with us without even having to go barrel diving like I did. After all, who isn’t down with saving the planet and money on their water bill? Oh and you can learn more about these amazing pre-made rain barrels on the Rain Barrel Company website since the winner gets their pick of the bunch:


  • PRIZE:  One of the three rain barrels (and stand) show above (either the Californian, Mocha Cascata or Terra Cotta Cascata, valued at $183 – $337 a pop!)
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “RAIN ON ME!” and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: Tell us your favorite way to make the most of a rainy day. Do you catch a movie? Curl up with a book (or blog)? Or just sit and dream about filling up a rain barrel?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Thursday, July 16, 2009 at 8pm EST
  • NUMBER OF WINNERS: One and only one
  • PRIZE SHIPS: USA and Canada
  • THE USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday. Good luck!

PS: Anyone catch the subtle Hilary Duff / Laguna Beach theme song reference in the title? Yeah, um, me neither..

    I’ve been wanting to get one of these for awhile now!

    I love a good rainy day…napping on the sunporch. Especially if there is lightning and thunder

    RAIN ON ME! If it is warm, the best thing to do is go swimming. There is something magical about swimming in the rain.

    RAIN ON ME!!!!

    I would LOVE to have a rain barrel!!!! I heart this give away!

    Rainy Day = cleaning or movies for me (My hair frizzes! hehe)

    RAIN ON ME! The thing I like best on a rainy day is a good book. I’m reading ‘The Good Book’ right now, but haven’t gotten very far, because it’s hardly rained at all in MN this summer. My lawn is crispy!

  5. Laurel says


    I too would love one of these. . . hmm, rainy days I like to sit on my porch with a good magazine or fun home-goods catalog

  6. Heather says


    On rainy days my son and I put our rain boots on and play outside! He loves it! So seriously, rain on me.

    RAIN ON ME!! How cool! We’ve actually been wanting a rain barrel for some time. I love to curl up with a good book on my porch when it rains, but since I have 4 active boys, they are usually climbing the walls when they can’t go outside. So, we end up playing a board game or watching a movie.

    RAIN ON ME! Such a great giveaway. My fiance just got his master’s in Environmental Science, and we’re always looking for ways to make more environmentally conscious decisions. On rainy days I love to either curl up with a book, or catch up on organizing/decluttering our place.
