I need to preface this post by admitting something to you all: I heart free stuff. Seriously. I will take free ANYTHING. I spend 5 minutes each day searching for free stuff I can get in the mail. I'll sign up for the toothpaste, the free tampons (no joke--got a sample box of these 3 days go)--whatever. But free snacks? This gets me excited. About 2 weeks ago I figured out that I could get a free Atkins Starter Kit. Now, I've never been on any low-carb diet nor do I intend to start. It's just that the starter kit came with 3 free bars. FREE, PEOPLE! I was a little wary of accidentally signing my life away or something, but no credit card info, no "plan"...nothing. Just this little box of goodness that arrived today:
**Sorry, I had to scrub out my mailing address. My mailbox couldn't handle all the fan mail I'd immediately start to get and who wants that drama, you know?**
Inside was a letter, some recipes, a notebook of carb counts in various food....blah, blah blah. The free food! 3 bars, each a different type, all with chocolate. Hello, I'm interested. Admire my loot:
I tried one already and it was yummy! Basically a glorified candy bar (at least the one I tasted) but overall I'm pleased! If you want to waste 3 minutes of your life but gain 3 free bars, go here and click on free weight-loss kit. To prove to you that I was not hired by Atkins to promote a low-carb lifestyle, please check out my next photo. None of this is low ANYTHING.
|So much Cadbury!!!|
We may not get to have our Easter baskets and family with us this holiday, but we will certainly have our candy! Don't worry, only one bag of mini eggs is for this weekend. The rest are officially "stockpiled". Please don't laugh at me, but I divided 2 of these huge bags in half and designated them for each month.
And yes, I wrote on each bag what month they were for. Hubs has already started on about some "sleep eating" nonsense but I don't believe it. Those bags are saved for a reason! As soon as easter ends I get sad because of mini egg withdrawal so this time I'm prepared.
|For July ONLY!|
Do you go crazy for free samples? Ever made a meal out of them at grocery stores?
YES! When I used to shop at Costco I would hit up every free item at least 3 times. I also sign my life away online for a 1/2 ounce sample of detergent.
Which holiday treats do you miss most post-holiday?
Mini eggs obviously, but also candy corn after halloween. Luckily, you can find candy corn almost year round now!
