Free (or Almost Free) Stuff That Arrived in My Mail

Last week my mailbox just overflowed with frugal goodies. Check it out, and then comment and let me know what free or very cheap goodies you've scored lately:

Free business cards from Zazzle. This offer is no longer available, but these cards are really nice and shipping was free too.

Huge box of Huggies for just $10.50. Got this on Amazon by combining magazine coupon codes with the 30% off Subscribe & Save offer, which is now part of Amazon Mom. (P.S.: I paid the remaining $10.50 with a gift card I got with SwagBucks, so I didn't actually spend any cash at all!)

Free Pop Pals from Franklin Goose. Way back when, Franklin Goose was offering credits to people who reviewed products on their site. I participated and earned $35, but had trouble finding stuff to spend it on since they don't sell sippy cups or sun block, the organic-type stuff I have needed lately. So I bought these Pop Pals, which I thought would work for popsicles for some reason, but they're really only for ice pops -- despite the valiant efforts of my kids and a friend to use them on fruit bars:

 I'm kind of regretting this purchase because they will clutter up my kitchen and won't get used much. Oh well, they were free, with free shipping, after my credits.

 And, a little Groupon action:

$25 worth of organic raisins and other dried fruit from TheNuttyGuys.com. This cost me only $10 in shipping, since I got the $25 Groupon for free with credits I earned thanks to you, the best blog readers on earth.

I have bought several $25 vouchers for TheNuttyGuys.com on Groupon at $10 each . It has come up on different cities and I wouldn't be surprised to see it come up again.

Today I got my first order. Look at those beautiful organic raisins and dried fruits! I'm happy about these vouchers, which I hope to use for Christmas gifts as well. We haven't actually eaten any because we have lots of fresh fruit in the house right now, but they look moist and lucious.

But I would be happier if their shipping rate was better. Shipping is $10 for 0-10 pounds.

For this order, I ended up paying about $12.50 because to use the whole $25 I had to go over a bit. For my second order, I'm selecting $23.94 worth of stuff, and it looks like that will work with the $25 Groupon. I'd rather leave a buck on the table than go over. This time around, I'm getting a jar of almond butter and two pounds pistachios.
