SomethingStore.com – A Creative Idea I Wish I Thought Of!

You know me. I’m always up to some kind of wacky, fun, creative idea. That’s why I’m impressed with a new site/product I found today called SomethingStore.com.

SomethingStore is a fun new website that operates quite simply: We will send you something, selected randomly among many things from our inventory for $10 (free shipping) and you will find out what your something is when you receive it. So, what will yours be?

This is awesome. I ordered “something” today, and will let you know what I get when I get it.

What’s also funny is the page that talks about what you “won’t” get. Stuff like body parts, endangered species, drugs, etc… Good stuff.

So what will I get?

SomethingStore strives to deliver both value and fun with each something. The fact is the merchandise we randomly pick somethings from varies greatly. Depending on your wants and desires, your something may be just the thing you needed or some useless stuff, as it may really be anything. Yes, some items will be more expensive than others in terms of their monetary value, but we believe eventually it’s your perception that will decide what your something is worth.

Can’t wait to find out! If you think about the business model here… It’s pretty easy to see how this could be profitable. You get your hands on some cheap overstock items that are far less in worth than $10.00, then you simply stuff one of them in a box and ship it out. If done correctly, you could make anywhere from $3.00-$8.00 from every order. They pay for shipping so that eats into the cost.

Overall, this is one of those fun, creative ideas I wish I had thought of first. Great work and kudos to their team.

Actual Amazon.com Reviews...

"Jim Kukral's new book pisses me off. And not because it's a lousy book, and reading it was a waste of time. His book pisses me off because in it, Jim interviews really, really, successful people who ARE living their dreams. And, I'm jealous. I want a turn, you know?" - Joel Libava

"I loved this short, informative, encouraging e-book. The stories of others who have been successful building a business around their lifestyle is a wake up call for me to get off my butt and do it! Thanks Jim for this book!" - Sienna

"I was having kind of a blah day, I read this book, now I feel like a million bucks and have renewed inspiration to go make a million bucks." - Eric Woodard

    The mystery is very compelling. Let us know what you receive. I imagine they would send out a larger concentration of high-end products from the start to generate buzz.

    Your article makes it seem much more peppy and intriguing than it actually is. After ordering 3 somethings, received items you could find at the 99c store. (Art coloring kit, tool set, cheap junk bracelet). Ugh….
