3 Freebies I Got In My Mailbox This Week

Here are the freebies that showed up in my mailbox this past week:

2 books from PaperBackSwap — I’m so bummed that PaperBackSwap is now going to be charging a small amount per transaction. I had some credit in my account that had built up over the years that I was able to use to cover the cost of an unlimited yearly membership. But after that year expires, I’m not sure that I’ll continue to use them. :(

1 free Degree Men’s Dry Spray — Jesse was really excited about this freebie! And it was such a generous size, too!
