    I was just wondering what different things you've bought through Merrill for PC that you find helpful or that you REALLY like? I'd like to get a Jacket, but I'm debating over that and a few other things! Thanks for any input!!

    I LOVE my jacket!! I got it on sale for about $30 (it was a clearance item) and I get sooo many comments on it! I also love my duffel bag (blue one) for weekend stays--very roomy and honestly, a great price versus other ones I've seen. I haven't used my pink backpack yet--I should join the Y to show it off! And I have a nice french blue shirt I use for shows--again, clearance. And I get lots of comments on it. I buy only clearance, though--I'm cheap. But it's just as affective as full price stuff! I also have their recipe card holder--it's purple and I LOVE it!

    I use the large envelopes for to mail my host packets in. They are great! I also like the stickers they have for guests to label their catalogs on pages they like something. They say, "Love it," "Gotta Have It," etc. My guests really appreciate them. I also use the post-it notes and ink pads w/name, address, info.

    I use the clear PC stickers they have. I use them on my guest folders and such. It makes it look like I printed to some extent on the folders and it looks better than me writing on them. :) i also use other stickers they have. For clothing, I have a few different shirts but honestly I only like the violet tee shirt. I thought it would shrink a lot being cotton but it didn't so its kind of big but thats ok. I bought it to workout in (hee hee!) so its great!! The business card holder is nice and have had lots of compliments.

    OH I do have the post it notes as well and they work great. Also, I have the car decals for my side windows with my name, phone, website. I always forget what comes from where.

    I really wanted the business card holder but it's real leather and I don't buy leather. I was crossing my fingers that it was faux when I saw it but no luck for me!

    The only Merrill things I have are the car decal on my back window and the large party envelopes that have the date, time of the party, what time I will be there and the day we are closing the party on the left side. Oh and I have the black scoop neck shirt with Pampered Chef "bedazzled" on the front LOL Although I got all of them free :) The first two I got when I recruited and received the g.c. and the shirt I got from my recruiter who has since left PC :(

    Ok, update is fast b/c UPS just dlvd to me! Mug is cute & so are the HWC pens. The walking kit is ok & I love the note pads.

    I also forgot that I have the duffel that is on the website now. Got it at conference & I agree that it is a great price for such a large/lots to hold bags. I also got the lip balm at conference but don't know where I put it..need to find it lol.

    I loved the microsuede jacket but didn't want to spend that much for them. Now that they are on clearance I might get the yellow & brown. I got the stretch canvas jacket from someone else & I like it too. I also have the business card holder.

    I rec'd the luggage finder & cell phone holder from someone else but my cell phone holder is different from the website & I like it. The difference looks to be the way it hooks onto your purse.

    I really want to get some Logo wear. I don't know if I can wait for Conference. I'm scared of choosing the wrong size/it not fitting me well. But I REALLY want to start wearing stuff! ;)

    I just bought 2 weeks ago the name badge, stamp w/o address, 3 car decals, the pink and black backpack, 2nd hand Lap boards.

    Next on my wish list: business cards, logo wear, stationary/thank you cards

    I love love LOVE my hoodie!!! I get soooo many inquiries when I wear it. I love my duffle bag too!! I took it with me to Mexico and it was perfect. It had plenty of room for everything. The flip flops were my FAVORITE pair to wear last summer. I love the soft feel of them. I wish they'd come out with different colors. :balloon::balloon::balloon:

    I know this is a little off topic...but why wouldn't you want your address on your stamp? I'm still a fairly new consultant & I was thinking about ordering one of the stampers but wasn't sure why you wouldn't want this info on there.

    thanks!!!

    I think that's what she is saying, she wouldn't have got it with her home address if she had thought about it more.

    I know personally, I don't want my home address on it.

    I guess if you were putting your info on things..people don't need to know where you live...but the address one is nice for using as a return address when mailing things!

    Also Heather how was the recycled jacket sized? Did you find it was true to what size you usually order? I want to make sure it fits good...not too big or small!? If I order the hoodie I'd probably order a Large definitely bc if it's a bit big it's not a big deal.

    I have always ordered Mediums and all were fine, except the 3/4 raglan tee too small! I supose I could go small but some might be tighter than I feel comfortable with. So true to medium size yes, I beleive so.

    I do actually use the address stamp for envelopes so that is good. I just don't want everyone I run across to know where I live. I have no issue w/them knowing my phone number or email address but my home address is just not something I want everyone to have access to. Now I have no problem w/people I meet that have parties & such but sometimes I give things to strangers in a store or put postcards out places for whoever to pick up. Too, some people might have issues with where you live. I live in a nice new subdivision that is in a small town outside of Little Rock which is our major city. I don't want anyone not to do business w/me b/c I live in Jacksonville & think that is too far away from them. Although I drive to west LR everyday for work (about 30min drive depending on speed & I speed :)) So there is a long answer for a short question. TOO, they did not have the option when I bought my stamp to NOT have your address on the stamp.

    Personally I like the red in the recycled fleece jacket. The red hoodie looks like sweatshirt material to me & the fleece a little more not soooo casual. I would call it more dressy casual. If it was me I would pick the recycled fleece jacket. HTH :)

    I probably won't get the red only because I have red hair and red doesn't look very good on me!?? I was leaning more towards the recycled one...but I like the idea of having a sweatshirt kind of throw on one...like the other?? Hmmm...

    Well, the blue would look great on you then! I try to do red when I can b/c they say it grabs peoples attention more. I understand what your saying though. You need to get what you are more likely to wear all the time. I ALWAYS have something PC on. Right now it is cold AGAIN & I'm wearing my black vest. When it warms up like spring & summer I wear my HWC windbreaker. (I am ALWAYS cold) So get which one you'll wear the most.

    This is what I'm thinking....most of the time when I'm going to throw on a sweater it's going to be more of a casual one. The blue one seems a bit dressier to me...and the only time I'd probably wear it would be to a party or something....when people already know Im a pc consultant! So my thinking is I'll get the sweatshirt and probably wear that more. Then maybe at Conference or down the line I'll look into the fleece one! Thanks for the help :)

    I was going to say that too.. the blue or red which ever color you choose, recycled fleece is nice that you can dress up with it with say docker type pants. But today it's jeans and tennis shoes that I am wearing with it. ;)

    With that red (or it comes in black and maybe white) fleece, it's more casual looking like a standard sweatshirt and not as dressy like.:) HTH

    I have the black/white windbreaker (like the current burgundy one).

    LOVE IT!

    I have a 3/4 sleeve dress shirt and the lime green quilted jacket. Lime Green fits great, but the PC doesn't stand out for anyone to notice.

    The dress shirt is the same way...kind of so-so to me.

    My only complaint is that so many of the clothes really don't have a great contrast. I own as much as Heather and Kasi (if not more). I really like the older ones (mainly from AIM) that had great contrast so people see the logo. I get more comments on those than the ones that are newer. I have friends who wonder if they will ever see the same logo wear on me in a month. :)
