It’s Thursday and that means a full mailbox

by Alison on October 16, 2014


On Thursdays our street mailbox fills up with ads, circulars, and promotional fare. Do you look through that pile of “junk” mail or just toss it into the recycling bin? I look through it. I may not read all the sale ads, but I am looking for hyper local coupon books, special offers or the ad for The Christmas Tree Shop-don’t tell the hubs.

Not junk mail, but frugal mail:

Two of my favorite promo pieces of mail on this mail day are two padded envelopes. One is from Money Mailer, and one is from Valpak. Both these envelopes are packed with offers from your local area business and services. Shop local. Save local.

To get the FREE Money Mailer delivered to your street mailbox go to and sign up with your zip code to get offers in your area. Sign up for email offers while you are there. I like the Money Mailer for services and business promotions in our area.


To get the FREE Valpak go to to sign up to get offers in your zip code. I like the Valpak mailer for restaurants and store coupons in our area.
