Friday Giveaway with Shackpack!

Who doesn’t like a good old fashion giveaway? We are very pleased to offer up a couple Shackpacks to some lucky winners! Just in case this is the first time you have heard about this fantastic invention, let us tell you a little more about Shackpack below!

Shackpack has been a vision of Deanna Collins since 1999, when she became a REALTOR® and realized that many homeowners needed an organizational tool to store receipts and data about their home.

Deanna wanted to create a journal type book that could store everything home related; paint samples, appliance details, maintenance records, mortgage and real estate paperwork with pockets, folders and grid paper to plan landscape designs.

Shackpack has been designed to suit home owners of all ages and stages, whether buying or selling, renovating or building or simply just treasuring their home. Shackpack has been designed in a way that it can be used as keepsake, a working journal, an organizational tool or a coffee table book left out as a selling tool for potential buyers to flip through.

It was important to Deanna to ensure Shackpacks would make amazing client gifts for professionals in Real Estate, Mortgage Brokers and Banks, Accountants, Designers, Insurance brokers etc. Shackpacks are bound together with 2 large pocket folders with business card holders to ensure clients have your contact information. They can also be branded with your logo and business information.4way-2

So…would you like to win one of these organizational marvels? Post a comment below and make sure to like and share the Facebook post to enter! We’ll do a couple of random draws on Saturday October 18, 2014.
