My Mailbox Was FULL of Surprises!

Have you been emailing your favorite companies to request money saving coupons? If not, I recommend you start! It takes less than 5 minutes per company! Simply go to the companies website, find their "contact us" form and tell them why you like their products. Be specific on which products you like. Then ask if they could send you some money-saving coupons. I have received 14 personal typed letters in the last few weeks by doing this. The savings are adding up!

I posted an article this past Tuesday and we practiced writing to two companies, SoBe and McCormick, requesting money saving coupons. You can read the post here.

They sent me several money saving coupons today. SoBe sent three coupons for $0.50 off any one 20oz. SoBe Lifewater. They also sent a coupon for a buy one get one free (BOGO). Thanks, SoBe! These are currently on sale at Food Lion for 99 cents. I will get three for 50 cents each, and a free one with the BOGO coupon.

McCormick sent a $0.75 cent off any one dry seasoning mix (which should be free), and two for $0.75 any one item. If I can use these for dry seasoning mixes, they should be free. They sent a $1.00 off any two Recipe Inspirations Products, also. Thanks, McCormick!

Fourteen companies have sent personal typed letters in the last few weeks, all with money saving coupons (some for free products). These include:

McCormick, SoBe, Nestle Purina PetCare, Del Monte Foods, Haagen-Dazs, Kimberly Clark, The Hain Celestial Group, Clif Bar & Company, Lindsay Olives, Land O' Lakes, Mario Camacho, Georgia Pacific, Skinny Cow, and Continental Mills.

I also received a very generous sample of Purina One catfood for my calico cat with a $1.00 off coupon on any size catfood. Nestle Start Healthy, Stay Healthy sent a Gerber Food guide for my toddler with two coupons for $0.75 off any two Gerber Graduates Meals/Snacks.

And the best surprise in the mail? A nice little check from the consignment store! PAYDAY! If you have any unwanted/unneeded household items or clothes, look up a consignment store in your area that will accept them. They usually pay pretty well and you don't have to price or spend a day trying to sell everything like you would if you had a garage sale.
