What's in my Mailbox??

Today was a fun day to get mail! As I wrote before, I have started writing companies to let them know I really love them or dislike them.

I received:

NEW Downy UNSTOPABLES from Vocalpoint

Coupon for One FREE So Delicious Dairy Free Products
(2) $10 off mega or larger Luvs diapers
