I get almost ALL of my freebie information from posts by MoneySavingMom. She always has a lot of useful information on her blog.

Well just this week (and it's only Wednesday) I've received 2 freebies. The first and most exciting was a free Swiffer Sweeper. Yes, I said FREE! These usually cost around $10.00. This is by far the best freebie I've received yet.

I also received a free sample of the new Orville Redenbacher 100 calorie snacks in the mail yesterday.

It's always fun to get home and check the mailbox. I don't know if it's going to have a special surprise for me or just bills! ;}

Coupons & samples

Christmas in July!

I have subscribed to and visit frequently which is a great website for getting information about discounted (sometimes free) stuff. One of the recent things posted was for offers discounted gift certificates to restaurants in your area. All you have to do is punch in your zip code and it provides you with a list of restaurants where you can get gift certificates.

I hit the jackpot yesterday. I was able to get $250.00 worth of gift certificates for $27.00, which included a gift certificate for my aunt that lives in the Chicago area.

We have several people that we give gift certificates to for Christmas, and since I usually start my Christmas shopping early, I thought this would be a good place to start with the bonus of saving LOTS of money.
