Have you been getting your freebies? I have a wicker basket I store mine in and once a month I take a picture of the freebies I received for my blog. Anyway, my wicker basket is overflowing for June, plus there's a nice size pile of freebies next to it on the floor. Hope your mailbox gave you a hearty bounty too.

You can grab this freebie for your or your pet. Nordic Naturals has sample packs of Wellness, Sport or Pet Pack.  Click on "Free Sample" at very bottom of page on right (it's very small).

This one isn't free, but it's close! Old Navy's annual $1 Flip Flop sale is Saturday, June 30th. I've gone to this before, just take my word for it that you want to get to the store early!

The kids will like the free Build & Grow Clinics at Lowe's. The schedule for July is: July 14th and 15: Kung Fu Panda Spinning Attack, July 28th and 29th: Kung Fu Panda Stacking Friends.

In stores only while supplies last. No rain checks will be issued. Coupon expires 6/30/12.

Are you a cheese lover? If so this is the magazine for you! You can get 2 free issues a year of Melt by filling in the form. Click on 'Subscribe Free' about half way down the page.

If you live near a Quick Chek make sure you print out the coupon on their Facebook page to get yourself a free medium Banana Split Hot Chocolate. Coupon valid at Quick Chek only and expires 7/2/12. If your heading to the movies at a Regal Cinema you can get a free popcorn. You can print the coupon or show the QR code scanned on your phone. Coupon valid 6/26 -7/1. Don't forget that every day throughout the Summer Dreyer's Ice Cream and Edy's Ice Cream are giving away a limited number of coupons good for a free cup of their ice creams (25,000 total for each brand)! The times will be different each day for the giveaway, so like them and watch their wall for updates so you know when the giveaway goes live. The next one isn't a freebie but it is a BOGO. Buy a Frappuccino and get one free at all Target Starbucks locations. Offer good until July 2nd.
