Am I getting spoiled or fooled?

I'm looking at it like I'm being spoiled... when you're pregnant a lot of stores and companies are offering free gifts. I know they are doing this in hope of getting new customers, but I do feel I have a judgement of my own, and I'm not fooled by the free gifts, but then again I'm not stupid so of course I will take the free gifts!

So far I have picked up 2 of my free gifts, which have included a pack of diapers, shampoo for me and the baby, lotion, oil etc. for the baby, nursing pads, several magazines, stain remover and best of all a diaper bucket for used diapers, which will kill the smell of the diapers... Here is a picture of what I have got so far...

I still have one store where I can pick up a free gift. Then there will be a gift I can pick up 4 weeks before giving birth, then I have signed up for getting free baby food, which a company will send me around the time the baby will be 4 months. There are so many places you can sign up for free gifts online, so I actually can't keep track of how many I have signed up for. I'm only keeping track off the ones that I have to pick up myself. The rest will be sent to me at home, so I'm preparing to get excited to open the mail over the next few months.

Is there anything better than free gifts? And is there any reason not to say yes to free gifts from big companies?

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Personally, I am all about free gifts. Especially if there are no strings attached. That's a very rare thing around here though.

    Looks like you got some great (and necessary) stuff!

  2. I am a sucker for all things free - so go for it!


    ps: Thanks for the birthday wishes! Oh, and the vegetarian thing - I used to eat meat (I even went to Hot Horse in Ljubljana and ate a horse burger!), but stopped about 3 or 4 years ago now.

  3. Um, free gifts rock. I'd say keep 'em coming if you can!


Your comments makes me smile:)
