Challenge

Over the last week I posted 5 different freebie posts with different items.  I know we all love a freebie from time to time.  Have you ever thought about challenging yourself?

I challenge you to stuff you r mailbox with freebies this year.  Try to get 1 freebie a week, or take it a step further and do a freebie a day.

I'm going to try it

Anyone else up for trying for 1 freebie a day?

I have too, and only picking ones that I like and will really use.  Other wise I feel like it's a waste of time.

I can respect and understand wanting to be careful, but just know that sometimes just visting sites they can get your information from your cookies.  So the best way to prevent this is to clean our your cookies daily.

I found the best freebies is by calling the company directly of any brand you want. They will send free samples sometimes and KILLER coupons you can't get in the newspaper. All just for asking and also saying you like there prodecut etc etc.. And then simply ask for your personal info not to be sold.
