Just a reminder that the 50 FREE photo cards from expire TOMORROW November 30th. Use code newbaby and all you pay is tax, shipped directly to you. You can find more info further down my blog about this great offer! Feed It Forward 2009’s Feed It Forward program is back.

I loved this idea last year, and I sent a few family members free meals, which they appreciated.

From their website:

Hungry to Give?
The gift of giving lifts spirits, spreads joy, and strengthens communities. Feed It Forward™ provides you the opportunity to help give away up to $30 million in free restaurant gift certificates—over 30 days—and allows you to treat friends, family, and colleagues—anyone deserving—to savings on a great meal out. Best of all, it’s FREE to Give and FREE to Receive.
Through Feed It Forward™, you have the opportunity to give from the heart and enrich the lives of people around you through the gift of meals and memories. Give a free $10 Gift Certificate to 30 different people, everyday until Christmas. Simply choose whom to give to and we take care of the rest.
Give to family. Give to friends. Give to neighbors. Give to anyone who has touched your life, but most of all, give! Thank you for helping to Feed It Forward™.

The only restrictions are you can send one gift per email address, and the $10 certificate typically requires a minimum purchase at select restaurants. Still, it would make for a frugal date night or a cheap lunch for a friend or loved one.

Vivemejor Samples: Ponds, Hellmans, Caress, Degree

Vivemejor is offering 4 samples. It’s a little unclear as to if it is only 1 free sample per item per household or just one free item. (These do come and are usually larger sizes).

Tips on getting freebies online

I love freebies and samples. Its so fun to get little surprises in your mail. Currently, I have a basket in my linen closet that holds all of of toiletry freebies and its packed! We use them for travel, camping and guests. From time to time I weed it out and give it away. Today I received 2 full size Matrix hair products and a few weeks ago 2 tickets to the Detroit Lions. We've even received Cuisinart saute pans! Its so fun to find a surprise sitting in your mailbox!

Tips when requesting freebies/samples online:

1. ALWAYS use an alternative email address. Most will want to put you on their mailing list unless you request not to during the sign up process.

2. NEVER give out your home phone number or any personal information. I have no problem giving out my address, but don't give out my phone number or real birth date. It costs money for companies to mail you something so rarely, if ever, will you receive solicitations in the mail because of requesting freebies. They are more likely to call.

3. Be quick! Most samples are only available to a certain number of requests.

4. Be patient. It typically takes 4-8 weeks for something to arrive. Some things you sign up for, never will come. But most do if its a reputable company.

5. has an ongoing list of freebie items and they always come quickly. They never email and change their offers frequently. Simply go to and click on in stores now and then free samples.

Keep checking out this blog for sample and freebie listings!

LeapFrog Alphabet Pal $.49

From 11/13-11/14 Toys R’ Us has the LeapFrog Alphabet Pal for only $10.49.

Grab the ad(it was in the Advance Newspaper this week) and take it into Target to price-match.

Then use the $10 Target coupon to get it for .49 cents.

I believe you would have to do this at guest services during the same day and time as the Toys R Us Sale- Friday 3pm-midnight, Saturday 7AM-1pm

Some have reported that Target isn’t allowing you to price-match AND use a Target coupon. But, there is still nothing about this in their coupon policy. In fact, another blogger emailed Target and got a response that says you can do this. You can print off a copy of her email here just in case and take it with you incase you get an incompetent cashier.

I've never priced matched before so I'm going to give this a try! Hopefully this works!

Thanks Mojosavings!
