Freebies!

This evening I arrived home to a big stack of mail on the counter. There were 2 small boxes, which I immediately recognized as sample boxes. Then another big box that I couldn't figure out.

The samples were Caress Body Wash and a Better Than Ears dog treat. The big box was a mystery even after I read the return address. Once I opened it though, I knew who it was from. I had joined the Coffemate Brew Crew a few months ago, and it was a box full of goodies! There was Dana's favorite French Vanilla creamer in a new package size, a nice travel mug, a Coffeemate spoon, and an insulated bag.

This was quite the treasure for one day. In just the past month I've received Huggies Pure & Natural diapers, Crest Pro-Health Enamel Shield Toothpaste, Cream of Wheat, WalMart brand formula, and Cottonelle flushable wet wipes. All of this free!

I had forgotten how much I loved Cream of Wheat, so after the sample, I bought a box with the enclosed coupon. The diapers are so tiny, I can't believe the twins will fit them, and I love that they were a 3 pack. I'm waiting for Dana to try the Enamel Shield toothpaste. If he likes it, then there are 2 brands of enamel toothpaste to choose from and I can better manage the budget.

And a slightly different freebie this last week was a gift from our neighbors. They sent Kaia home with a jar of Zucchinni Jelly. Sounds wierd, right? It tastes really good. Obviously there is a lot more than zucchinni in it, but I thought it was a wonderful way to preserve that extra zucchinni that is always available.

Have you received any fun free things lately?

I've received many of the same samples that you have. The diapers are so tiny! Red Chief loves samples; he calls them "presents." I like getting toothpaste especially because it can be so expensive.

Sounds like all the samples are great! Where can I sign up? Great job on getting these items especially when working a budget these days!
