A week's worth of freebies by mail...

Here is the big long list of all the other fun stuff (ie freebies) I got in the mail over the past week while I was gone. They are all pictured above:
  •  P&G Sampler box including samples of Tide, Bounce, Cascade, and Pantene.
  • NeilMed Neti Pot
  • FREE Lipstick for sharing my goal from Walgreens and Revlon
  • Sahale Snacks Southwest Cashews for my husband and Sahale Snacks Tuscan Almonds for me
  • Zarbee's Children's Cough Syrup Sample
  • Coupon for FREE Lofthouse cookies for my husband for his birthday this month
  • Issue of Cosmopolitan from my FREE subscription
  • Special K Protein Meal Bar (with 2 $1 off coupons)
  • True Citrus sample pack (2 True Lemon, 1 True Lime, 1 True Orange, and a $1 off coupon)
  • Travel information about Clay County, Missouri
  • John Frieda Frizz-Ease collection samples
  • $5 off at Tuesday Morning for being a Preferred Customer (ie signing up for their emails and mailings)
  • Stopain sample plus $2 off coupon
  • Secret Clinical Sample from Wal-Mart (It is pretty good sized for a sample-like a travel size)
  • $2.28 Rebate check from Banquet
  • Letter from Genesis Today explaining that they ran out of their FREE 64 oz Acai Berry bottles, but that they hoped this discount coupon for Goji Berry juice would be appreciated instead-then it had a coupon for a FREE 10 oz Goji Berry Juice! That is a company I like-if they run out of the original samples, they send you something else at least!! NICE!
So, what freebies have you been getting in your mail lately?! I would love to know if you are getting fun stuff as well!


Tomorrow is FREE Hot Dog on a Stick day!!

I totally wish I was still going to be visiting Utah on June 15th!!! That day is FREE Hot Dog on a Stick day on Tuesday, June 15th from 5-8 pm. (One free Hot Dog on a Stick per person on June 15th only.)

Also, as a reminder, Hot Dog on a Stick has $1 Tuesdays where you can get your Hot Dog on a Stick for a buck!
Photobucket sent me some Snikiddy to try and share!!

I recently joined and accepted a mission from them to try Snikiddy all natural baked fries, and to share some with my friends. I got the box of samples from them for me and my friends while I was gone as well. I cannot wait to try these out, share them and tell you all about it! Check out the picture above to see what I got! These look so good-I will be eating my bag with my lunch!


I got my winning package!

Well, coming home to a week's worth of freebies and samples and stuff is awesome (unfortunately I had hospital bills too, but there's nothing to be done about that-I knew it was coming!). One of the great things I got while I was gone, was the great stuff I won in the giveaway I won that I told you about here. My prize package included 2 big boxes of Fruit Roll-Ups Simply Fruit, a huge box of Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix bars, and a $25 gift card to Costco (all pictured above). My 2-year-old has already eaten like 10 fruit rolls in about 15 minutes before I noticed. I had to hide the open box!!


One last time to share coupons and review of Scrubbing Bubbles Extend a Clean Power Sprayer

This is a repost from May 13, but I wanted to repost it because I really believe in this product and I am still loving using it! I also still have some coupons left to share with you and would LOVE to get some to you! Please read in the last paragraph what to do to get yours!!

I told you yesterday that as a member of Bzz Agent, I am sometimes contacted by them with information or deals for products. Well, I was lucky enough to be chosen to try out a new product for them, and I am really excited to tell you about it. Before I do, just know that they did send me a free product to try out, but all opinions expressed are my own!!

OK, if you know me personally, you know I HATE to clean. I have a few problems with it. 1-I HATE to put so much effort in with such little results, 2-I HATE the smell of cleaning supplies. Well, yesterday in the mail, I got my package containing my free sample of Scrubbing Bubbles® Extend-A-Clean™ Power Sprayer from Bzz Agent to try! Thank goodness it came when it did because I happened to be cleaning all day yesterday preparing for my sister-in-law to come visit. As usual, I saved the bathroom for the end.

Here are a few things I was told about the Scrubbing Bubbles® Extend-A-Clean™ Power Sprayer by Bzz Agent:
  • Works over-time to fight soap scum and grime for up to 4 days with just one application
  • Features the first ever one-touch continuous sprayer, for complete ease of use
  • Designed for occasional deep cleaning
  • Safe for use on most bathroom surfaces including sinks, tiles, counters, showers and tubs
So, this thing has an awesome continuous spray that foams on and cleans like crazy.  Our bathroom sink was gross when we move din 2 years ago and in spite of great effort to make it shine, it never has. I sprayed this on let it sit for about a minute, then wiped it clean, and it was sparkly!! I could not believe it-fast, easy, and it worked well!! Minimal effort with great results! I was sold on that first spray! And guess what?! It has a smell I LIKE-it smells clean AND good.

I seriously loved this product, and the best part is that Bzz Agent sent me coupons that I can share with you. I have quite a few coupons for $5 off a starter kit (runs about $8.99) and $1 off refills (run about $3.99). So, if you would like a coupon to try this out, email me and let me know, and I will send out coupons on a first come, first served basis until my coupons are gone. Email me at with subject "Scrubbing Bubbles Coupon" and include your mailing address in the body of the email so I can mail you a coupon. Trust me, you will want to give this a try!!

$0.10 Fandango tickets-have you scored one?

I am just curious to know if any one has scored any of these $0.10 Fandango tickets? Below is a repost of the info for that promotion:
I heard that Fandango was going to be selling $0.10 movie tickets through the summer for their 10th anniversary, but was not sure how that would work. Well, Fandango posted the following on their Facebook wall today:

Our first 10 Cent Flash Ticket Giveaway was a wild ride! We call them "Flash Giveaways" because they can happen at any time -- so keep your eyes peeled for the next one and make sure to tell your friends. In the meantime, check our site for other Anniversary specials, including 10% off Fandango Bucks!

So, it looks like there will be flash sales that we will have to watch for and try to get in on while they last!

We made it home!!

Well, apparently publicly reprimanding Wyoming gained me one free pass through! That's right-I did NOT get stuck in Wyoming this time. We did drive through the craziest rain and lightning all through Wyoming and Nebraska, but we did so safely and without delays! I seriously tried to do the happy dance as we exited Wyoming without a delay (I couldn't do it as I was securely fastened in my seat belt)! Our only big mishap was one child throwing up and that happened before we ever even got out of Salt Lake. And, luckily that only happened once!!

Now that I am home, my inbox is overflowing with deals, and I got a week's worth of freebies in my regular mail-there was some good stuff this week! I will try to blog as much of it as I can this morning, but as I just got in late last night, I have a lot of unpacking, cleaning and shopping (need milk and stuff SOOO bad) to do, so I might not get through it all today! I will do my best!!
