Default New Year stuff your mailbox challenge

I am writing this thread mainly as a place to keep myself motivated to achieve my goal. Ever since we moved into this home, and saw the big mailbox I thought it would be so cool to see it stuffed with goodies! Of course, only way to do that is to e-mail companies, sign up for freebies, etc. I wasn't really sure where to place this, and not sure how to exactly measure if I've reached that goal. But I thought it would be fun to keep track of how many company contacts I'm doing now, and see if anyone else wants to join in for the fun!

I don't have the time to really post all that I'm e-mailing, but I figured I'd just set a goal for the day. I am trying to keep track though of who I have e-mailed, and if I get a response. I thought it would be fun to see. Anyone want to join me?

My goal today is to reach at least 50 contacts. So far today I'm at 10, but that's including yesterday's too. I don't always have a lot of time for doing this, so I'm trying to e-mail when I can. Anyone want to join me in e-mailing companies for the New Year stuff your mailbox challenge? The prize? Well, all the coupons and possible freebies from the companies you've e-mailed! Okay, I'd better get to work! Happy contacting!

It helped having a list of possible places to e-mail ready, so I didn't take up as much time thinking who to e-mail. I try to write down when I think of ideas. Glad to see someone else in the challenge! My goal for today? Umm...maybe another 50? I need to start a new list though. LOL I've had a few e-mails back already, and some said they are sending coupons. I'd better get to work on today's e-mailing! I'll be back to check in how others are doing as well. Good luck!

Yes! I love contacting companies and have been slacking quite a bit for the past few months. I will set a goal of 10 per day, as sometimes I just do not find the time - and hopefully I can find my list of favorite companies to contact - I think I have around 300 on there, it is quite helpful to have a list to start with.

I am up to 9 companies today! Not sure how much time I will have daily, but I have a weekly goal of 10. Good luck everyone.

I'm up to 22 myself for today. I know I won't be able to do this many daily, but I'm purposely trying to do a lot to try to get a lot at once. I thought it would be fun to see how full I could fill my mailbox. Kind of a challenge to encourage me to contact more companies. I hope everyone is accomplishing their goals! You're all of to a great start!

I'm trying to get as many as possible. in fact I'm starting a collection! We don't really each processed food from the store but my mom has money issues. So let me know if a company sends you a free product coupon! So far I've gotten 2 free Aidells products, 2 free welches products, and I've got a few more coupons promised. So far I've found out you 9 times out of 10 get nothing if you ask for them. Complimenting and complaining are the only times i've gotten one. Legit complaints though. I'm not being dishonest or anything.
