To all you new couponers out there, be encouraged! Mail in rebates really do work!
Today, in my mailbox, I received a 10.00 gift card to Rite Aid for a promotion they had in their October Single check rebate program; a 20.00 check from Olay for their eye roller deal last month (which double counted for my 100.00 Rite Aid Gift of Savings reward); (2) 5.00 checks from SC Johnson for purchasing candles at Kmart when they had their double coupon days back at the end of September (or was it beginning of October? I can't remember anymore!) I also have my 64.00 Single Check Rebate check from October that's still waiting to be deposited. So that's 104+ dollars I have!! I probably spent about 45.00 purchasing all the goods for the rebates, so for a double profit, that's worth the time spent couponing and shopping, dontcha think?
Oh, also in my mailbox --coupons for fruit from Vocalpoint, my free Shutterfly photo book I ordered last week, and a coupon for a box of free Fruitabu (organic smooshed fruit snacks for kids)!! What a great day :)
Slowly, over the past few years, my desire to give my two kids the healthiest, most wholesome life I can, has led me on a journey to seek out the healthiest options in every aspect of my family's life - in nutrition, in having a healthy home, and in making good choices that will positively impact the earth that I hope to hang around on long enough to see my grandchildren have children. So here is my journey. I hope you are inspired to begin your own :)
