Saturday Mail Call

Brrrr! Happy chilly Saturday to everybody. I would venture to say that poor Keith the mailman wished he had chains on the tires of the little mail jeep today! Ridgewood Circle was quite the treacherous place this morning as snow fell from the sky and coated the streets like parmesan cheese on lasagna. Nevertheless, Keith delivered a smorgasbord of goods all week long!

What did I get this week? Feast your eyes:

  1. Petersen's 4-Wheel and Off Road Magazine
  2. Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine
  3. Ontario Outdoor Adventures Calendar
  4. Bigelow Cozy Chamomile Herbal Tea sachet
  5. Cantu Shea Butter hair cream for dry hair
  6. Guitar picks in assorted colors/designs from
  7. Tena product $7.00 off coupon = FREE Tena product at Walmart
  8. Dunkin Donuts coupon for FREE small hot or iced coffee
The magazines may have come from Rewards Gold, or Mercury Magazines (access to free subscriptions on all three sites). The calendar, which has some nice photos, is STILL AVAILABLE HERE (select "add to cart"). The Bigelow Tea sample and the Cantu Shea Butter sample were Facebook freebies which are, sadly, over. The guitar picks are no longer available, there is a new Marlboro freebie that you should be able to score. If you or someone in your household is a smoker (my husband smokes), then you might want to go over to and create a free account. They have nice freebies every two or three months, and they have cigarette coupons monthly that you can request. The Tena coupon is still available from their website. You can get it HERE, and can request a $7 or $14 coupon by mail. The $7 Tena Pad coupon is the one that you should request because Walmart (and possibly other retailers as well, but I am unsure) has the pads for less than $7.00, thereby making them free with the coupon. The Dunkin Donuts coupon is one reason why you should look through your sale papers before trashing them. I cut this little coupon out of a DD coupon booklet that was stuck in the midst of Kroger, IGA, etc. sale papers. Many people automatically toss these out, but they are worth at least leafing through. You never know what might lurk!

Even if some freebies don't appeal to you, someone else might be able to use them. Like the incontinence pads or the hair cream, for example. Nobody in my household needs these things, but why pass them up if they are free? Get them anyway and keep them until you can pass them along to someone else. You never know when you might be able to bless someone with essentials that they need and cannot get for whatever reason. When I look for freebies, 9 times out of 10 I am thinking of who else might need it.

Have a fun, frugal and fabulous weekend, from our house to yours!
