Last week, we just got home from vacation and I had to start planning a birthday party for my baby.  Needless to say, it’s been a little hectic over here.  But, like my mom says, “If you want to really clean your house, throw a party!”  Because then you have a deadline.  I love throwing parties.  It gives you an excuse to try new recipes and have friends over.  But enough about that, here is a photo of what’s been turning up in my mailbox lately.  I probably forgot a few things since our dining room table is a mess and with all the stuff going on, I’m lucky to post at all!  Haha!

This one is a good one.  This was about two week’s worth of mail and it kept piling up so I decided that it was time to post!

There are tons of samples from Swaggable, a sample reviewing website.  I won the Luna bar from Facebook and the Luzianne tea stuff came from Facebook too (thanks to Kelsey at Chicnsavvy!)  The Peppa Pig book was from a giveaway on Little Island Studios blog.  I won the Scholastic prize pack (the bag, book and stickers, etc) from a twitter contest.  The Guacamole chips were from monthly The Live better America newsletter.  The Jockey slipshorts were from a facebook giveway.  There is a PinchMe box in there too.  The free crackers and Listerine were from Walmart.com.  The key chain, Truvia,  and the feminine products came from Crowdtap!  I won the lip tattoos in a Twitter contest.

I hope you have a full mailbox and a great week!

I have decided to change Mailbox Monday to Mail Call.  It’s starting to get hard to keep track of all the mail from that week and post it by a certain day.   This way, I can just post recent pictures of the things that I’ve received and I don’t make a deadline for myself.  I enjoy posting the mail I receive and I’ve added a recent challenge to my Facebook page.  When I get to 165 followers, I will host my first giveaway!  It’s going to be a fun one and coincide with the freebie theme.  So if you love samples and getting mail, recommend your friends to like my page!  Here’s a few of the things that were in my mailbox recently:

The oats and recipe pack was a surprise from @quaker on Twitter!  It was such a nice gift!  Thanks!

The Control Corrective skincare set was from the BirchBloggers program.  I am currently using it and will write a review soon.  I wanted to use it for a few weeks to see about the results first!

The V05 products were in a prize package from my friend, @modernisticmom.  She writes a blog and I won a giveaway!  Her blog is great and you can read it here: http://www.modernisticmama.com.

The coupons and the food scale was a giveaway from Hungry Girl.  When you preordered her book, you could enter for all that good stuff for free!  Bonus is that I bought the book with an amazon gift card that I also won!  🙂

The formula samples are from the Enfamil  Family Beginnings. They send stuff out every now and again.  It’s a great program and they always send good coupons.  They send out an awesome package when you first have your baby too!  Sign up here: Enfamil Family Beginnings

I won the Violent Lips tattoos in a twitter contest and the little shampoo and oil samples were from facebook and walmart.com. The pizza and soda coupon came from a contest from a local radio station.  The Blender Girl book was free from a focus group that I participated in.  If you’ve never done one, you should think about it!  I love giving feedback and it’s fun to see the finished product!  The Tide came from a P& G sample pack. I wrote about that site awhile back, in a Freebie Friday post.

The aromatherapy goods came from a pinterest contest.  I love this prize.  I put the mattress cover on our bed right away and same with the pillow protectors.  It is so nice falling asleep to the smell of lavender!  Thanks to @PureCare_Kayla on twitter!

As you can see, I’ve been a busy bee.  Have a great weekend and look out for my post about making a Summer List!

We were extremely busy at the beginning of the week and I missed the Mailbox Monday post!  Never fear. I am updating now so you can rest easy tonight 😉

This was a slow week but I still enjoyed the stuff I got.  It included a free magazine, free Snickers that I won in a facebook contest, Finish dishwasher tabs from Free Stuff Finder, a birthday coupon from Chicken of the Sea and a Jergens BB Body Cream from Target.  Enjoy your week and I hope you get a mailbox full of surprises!

This week was a little slow but still a good week.  I have a few sampling campaigns that I am involved in so I got some of those this week!
