Why I love mail Freebies

I love mailbox freebies. These are awesome especially when you’re having an okay, so-so, or even rough day, it’s always nice to open the mailbox to some great free items you’ve been anxiously awaiting.

Yesterday, our puppy bandanna came in from a Subaru promotion. I know, cheesy, but my 2 year old and his puppy had fun for about an hour playing Tug-o-War and Tie the Bandanna to the Puppy. Today my oldest son brought me a coupon for a free Bic lighter and a small package from the mailbox. My Pepsi Max T-shirt win came in from a Pepsi Max promotion which is on until 6/30 and you can enter daily. It only took me about 2 weeks of daily entering to get mine and it only takes 2 seconds if you have auto-fill set up on your browser.

My son also managed to make me feel both bad and good about my weight when I opened the T-shirt package. He asked me ‘Is that going to fit?’ about my size large T-shirt and though I was hoping he would say it is too big, he thought I needed an X-Large since that’s the size of most of my T-shirts. I DO wear them kind of big but still, I’ve lost quite a bit of weight recently and I’m proud of myself. So it’s good that I’ve changed in size, but not that my son hasn’t seemed to notice. Will I always be chubby mommy in his eyes?


About CharityAnn

I'm a small town, stay at home mom living on a shoestring budget. I spend my time working as a ChaCha guide from home, searching out internet coupons and deals, and entering sweepstakes for fun prizes we couldn't normally afford. Through ChaCha, coupons, deals, and sweepstakes I have found a way to continue staying home with my kids while still affording the things we want. I'm still learning what works and what doesn't, but I hope to share my finds with local readers so that we may all enjoy what our small town has to offer without paying big city prices.
