Pampers Gift to Grow points Giveaway - Winner announced

I'm doing another fun give away

Editor's note: The winner of the giveaway has been announced - check here

I'm upping the codes to 17 now. Enter if you haven't already! 

Click here for 160 free pamper points that you can enter

My kids are definetely out of diapers and pull ups (yay) and so I'm going to give away 16 Pampers Gift to Grow Codes.  I'm not sure how many points this translates to as these came from a variety of diaper packages (not wipes) that I never jotted down but definetely from jumbo and mega packs.  But I'm guessing from 10-100+ per code points
If you already have a Pampers Gift to grow account then this would definetely help you get closer to your reward?  Plus check out these additional codes/points here to boost your points.  If you do not have a Pampers gift to grow account then join below, plus you get the added bonus of winning a year worth of diapers free - thats a whole lot of free plus you'll get mailed free samples and coupons!!!  With these points found on packages of Pampers diapers and wipes you can redeem them for fun things for you and your family.


Are you saving up for the Jeep Stroller or Foogoo Thermos or something for you - a stress relief basket?

Maybe you'd like to Make a Change and donate your points to the March of Dimes

I guess you are wondering how I do it all being a working Mother and all. Well I run errands, before and after work and during my lunch break. Luckily I have all the major stores on my way to work and near work. I also sign up for coupons, rebates etc at my address and my MIL and SIL's address. They are super nice and pass them onto me and in exchange I share my freebies. With some planning you can do this too. Why pay when you can get it for free.  Check out my article on Freebie 101.

Its not hard to do all of this really as I spell out all my deals on this website, so why don't you also sign up to get these posts via email or click like me on facebook (Addicted to Freebies) and you'll see my daily posts. Deals go so quick these days so don't miss out (links to email and facebook are on the right hand side of this column).

Please feel free to email me your freebie list for May (pictures tell a thousand words too) and the best one will be posted on my site and I'll mail out a envelope full of useful coupons and include a couple of free coupons.

Next month I'll try to figure out how much money I've saved from not paying a dime on these freebies : )

Free Birthday cake

I made this cake for my son's 5th birthday family party this Saturday and you guessed it, I made the cake using ingredients that were free (well except for the eggs, although I did use a coupon for the Egglands best eggs).  Its not that hard to make a cake, although I don't like frosting cakes as they never quite look as good as what comes out of a professional bakery, however, I can't resist a freebie or a challenge.  So far I've made pirate ships and a hello Kitty cake and numerous cup cakes for the class party. 

How to do it:

I picked up the Betty Crocker cake mix and frosting all for free a while back at Acme supermarket.  So whenever I see a good frosting and cake mix coupon e.g. 50c/1 I cut them out from the Sunday paper inserts or print them out and save them till a deal comes up. 

Betty Crocker Newsletter

The above link takes you to a sign up for Betty Crocker email alerts.  This site has awesome printable coupon so sign up and print away.

I google my party theme idea and look up cakes that others have made and take my idea.

Happy cake making!
