Despite my best attempts, I realized one day that there was a real possibility I would not be able to exclusively breast feed my daughter for a full year and would have to start supplementing with formula. But the only formula we had, my daughter didn't like.
Formula is expensive. And we just don't have the money to go out and buy a bunch of different types to try with her, only to waste an entire can if she didn't like it.
I had a mission. To find coupons and samples online. In the course of my searching, I came across a great website and immediately subscribed. It's Triplet's Mommy. It's a site all for saving money. Postings of free things. Coupons. Samples. Etc. I am hooked.
The best thing so far that I got was a free Juicy Juice sippy cup. We've tried so many sippy cups for Audrey, but she just hasn't figured them out. The Juicy Juice cup was perfect for her. The day it arrived in the mail I filled it with water and put it in her hand. She had it at her mouth and had water dribbling out her mouth in no time. It was the first sippy cup she learned to use.
I've also signed up for free formula coupons (the whole reason I ventured out onto the web that day). Just today I was notified of the Children's Place Birthday Club. Hey ... Audrey's going to be a year old in less than 3 months (AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!), coupons are a GOOD thing.
I encourage you to check them out. Great coupon and sample postings daily. Subscribe via an RSS feeder or get the weekly emails.
