Another Free Thing For Me!

I don't like leaks or worrying about the possibility of dealing with a leak, so I chose to use Pampers diapers on my children. They may be a little more expensive per diaper than other diapers, but I can probably count on my two hands the number of leaks that I have had to deal with in the past 2 1/2 years of Brady's life and the past almost 8 months of Smiles' life. I think that I have actually dealt with less than than, but I really cannot remember.

Anyway, besides the lack of leaks that I have experienced with the diapers, something that I have participated with for the past 2 1/2 years is their Gifts to Grow program. On each of the packages of diapers and wipes, they have a code on it that you enter online. Each code is worth a certain number of points and then you can redeem those points for some type of prize - gift cards (free shipping) or a book or toy (you pay the shipping).

Well, I have entered the codes, but I have never redeemed any until tonight. I decided to cash in 400 of my 406.5 points for a $50 L.L. Bean gift card! I am so excited about this choice! What am I going to buy with that gift card? Most likely a toiletry bag (or two) that I have been wanting for quite some time. The one that I am using is too small and only has one pouch - not very organized!

Sometimes I wondered if it was worth putting in all of those codes...tonight, I am realizing that my "work" was no in vain! I cannot wait to receive the gift card...and the new bags! Yay! :)

I do the Gifts to Grow also. However, I have cashed some of mine. We got some Dora legos and 200 free pictures from ShutterFly. I currently have 183.83 (don't ask how I have .83 - I have know idea). None of the gifts excite me right now. Maybe I will just keep accumulating until I have alot to get something really nice - like a $50 gift card.

Thanks for the tip! We're late into the diapers game, but this seems like a cool program!
