Mailbox of Goodies: CA$H!

Great Mailbox of Goodies today, as well as an unexpected payday. I received $10 cash from Petsmart customer service. They changed the price on me in the hour it took to call and then take Chip in for his haircut, so the store manager refunded the difference. The difference was actually just $6, but they sent me a $10 bill instead. But then again, the visit was a month ago, so apparently they pay interest? Either way, thanks Petsmart!

It's been 3 months since we've been here, but I still keep getting those "welcome to the neighborhood" mailers. This time it was from Lowe's, and had a $10/$50 coupon and a $25/$250 coupon. We never shop there, so these will probably be going out via freecycle.

The next three things I received were samples/freebies that I requested. I got my Diaper Genie decals...I'll be putting them on the trashcan that we use for her diapers since we don't have a diaper genie. It's just a sheet of decals, so you can stick them wherever your heart pleases and not just a diaper genie.

Next is my DVD and pedometer from Tylenol. I haven't had a chance to watch the DVD yet, but I'm so happy to get the pedometer. It's fun for me to see how many steps I take on a walk with the dogs...! And lastly, I received my Child Safety Kit...something that I've been looking forward to for a long time. She's only 5 months old, but I wanted to get a kit started for her so that I get in the habit of making and keeping up with one. With our crazy hectic lifestyle, it's so easy to forget simple but extremely important things like that.

Not a lot of new freebies today, but here's four that you can request to beef up your mailbox of goodies.
Oh, and I'm also going to be handling my freebies in a different way. 
When I first started my list of freebies on my sidebar, it was meant as
a fun little resource but it has since gotten way out of hand.  Some
freebies take a mere week to show up on my door step, others will take a month or so.  In an effort to keep things a bit neater, I've separated my list of freebies. 

There is now a scroll-box of "incoming freebies", and another box below it with my "received freebies".  If you request any of the "incoming freebies", do so at your own risk because I cannot guarantee that you will receive them since I haven't even gotten mine yet.  If you're looking for a safer route, I would suggest going through the "received freebies", since that list contains all of the freebies that I have personally received. 

Feel free to let me know what you think about this new system...!
