Freebie Love & UBP!

How do they go together?!

I've been searching the Ultimate Blog Party & coming across some pretty incredible people. I love how honest some are in their blogs. Amazing! To be that honest, I imagine, would be quite freeing. I try, but usually hold back to a degree.

Of course as the party has gone on, I've come across some great giveaways, Twitter updates, etc.

Wanna know what I've gained? (humor me)

Thanks to BabyCheapskate I printed off coupons for a free wooden Thomas train. That's right, folks...completely free. I went into Toys R Us expecting there to be a catch, but there wasn't. We walked out with an $18 Lights & Sounds Percy completely free! Woo-hoo!
Feeling a little guilty...dh had also printed a coupon to redeem. So the boys got Peter Sam, too.

Another freebie:
A while back Thrifty & Chic Mom posted about a coupon for a free Suave product. Lucky me, it came in the mail this past week. $3 value. Score! So far my freebies have totaled almost $40.

I've also gained a coupon for a free box of the new Clorox wipes in the Decor Canisters. :) Yes! I love Clorox wipes and will put that to good use.

This was more of a giveaway, but free to me, so I'm including it. I won a contest on Momma in Flip Flops 2 , winning the Action Superhero Trading Cards! Aidan doesn't know it yet, but when he sees them he will be so excited. You put the child's own picture with the superhero body. What kid wouldn't love that?! (He already thinks he's the real Batman)

I've already added some great new blogs and Twitter followings from the Ultimate Blog Party over at 5 Minutes for Mom, and I've barely visited yet! You should check it out. So much fun, and hey, you could even win a prize or some freebies!

Unfortunately, I printed out the coupons but never made it to Toys R Us... :(

Man, you got the free train! Kevin found the coupon and I was trying to come up with SOME reason to drive an hour and half to the city so I could get it, but I had no excuse and had to miss out on the deal. Bummer...
