Do you ever go to the mail and just wish you hadn’t bothered? For me it can be so depressing…full of bills and junk mail. Most days the Smith’s ad is the best thing going. Today the Dog Walker took Teach to work and on his way back in he grabbed the mail. He brought in a small package, a bunch of envelopes, and the obligatory junk magazines that promptly made their way to the recycle bin.
Freestyle company, $50.00 this time. The kids caught wind of the fact that I had a package and they hovered around until I finally opened it. They were disappointed that it wasn’t the Tangled movie they had been waiting for, but I was excited about the free Tide samples and coupons Bossy ordered for me.
The next flyer was the one from my bank with the information I needed for my free $25.00 gift card I had been waiting for since Christmas. I couldn’t remember a mail day this good! The next envelope I opened had a $22.00 coupon for a free Fisher Price toy from the lead paint recall over two years ago and the envelope after that had a $22.00 rebate for the same thing! By now my sweetie was way passed impressed. "This sounds like a blog topic!" he said.

The last thing I opened had the Staples logo on it. It turned out to be my $25.00 rebate card for the box of paper I bought last month. If you’re counting, folks, that’s almost $200.00 in free stuff and although I guess I knew most of it was coming, it was still a wonderful surprise to get it all at once. I hope you have a day that turned out as good as mine…and now I’m going shopping…see ya’!
