Mailbag excitement

Part of the reason I look forward to getting my mail each day is the possibility of receiving some of the freebies I’ve requested. As for this week, not only did I get some toiletries I’ll end up using, but I got something I have been keeping an eye out for: a pedometer.

I’ve been needing a pedometer since I’ve started exercising more, but now I have one for free from the Tylenol Arthritis Keep Moving offer. It also came with an exercise DVD. Request yours here. The tampons, pad and pantyliner were part of the Kotex sample pack which you can request here. A $1 off coupon was also included, plus an invitation to take a survey. The survey gives you another coupon to print out when you’ve completed it! The little blue bottle is an Old Spice Body Wash sample from Walmart, with a $1 off coupon. Finally, I got a bilingual Pond’s sample and coupon. An impressive haul, especially when I get something I’ve been needing!

Recently, even when the mail carrier brings me bills and unwanted advertisements, I can usually count on receiving a sample, coupon, or the latest issue from one of my free magazine subscriptions. 🙂


Back home & a vacation freebie find!

After a wonderful vacation with my bf, I’m finally back home. We drove far over 9 days and saw much, but now it’s back home for the rest of the summer and time to create a routine. I didn’t have much of a chance to settle into one before we left due to his graduation (yay!), his sister’s baby shower, and his birthday (wow, he has an exciting life 🙂 ).

Anyways, the vacation was grand, and during one of our hotel stays (we alternated between camping and hotels), I found an exciting surprise. There was a women’s razor on the sink–not just any hotel sample, but a real Schick Go!® Surf Style™ with travel case. Then, I discovered a bag advertising Emergen-C and assumed the bag contained a box of it (the bag looked boxy). Inside, however, was a single packet of Emergen-C, a men’s Schick, and a whole lot more!

The bag contained:

Coupons galore at CVS

Coupons and Samples from CVS

When I was at CVS the other night, I looked for the beauty coupons that the New Frugal Mom had mentioned. Not only did I find the coupon books, but there was also a table full of coupons and a few samples.  There’s a bunch of Nivea coupons, a Curel coupon and sample, and a Lumene coupon and makeup samples.  I suppose this is part of CVS’s Beauty Sale.

On Saturday, to my excitement, I found a package in my mailbox. I expected it was one of the samples I’d ordered.
