Gifts to...Grow

It's going to cost me $120 just to have my teeth cleaned.

And trust me, they're in desperate need of it.

That's not including the cost of any little extras that pop up, like a disgusting amount of cavities (just a prediction), root canals, or otherwise.

Since I've gotten home from the dentist's office I've: cleaned a few dishes, $120, made lunch, $120, packaged Boyfriend off to school, $120, taken Shake'n'Bake to the potty, $120, cleaned the bathroom, $120, brushed our teeth, $120, cleaned the bedroom, $120, put the girls down for nap, $120, reheated my coffee, $120, and remembered I had a few Pamper's Gift to Grow Points to be entered. $120.

There it was, the toy I have been planning to buy for Splat for her first birthday. Nothing too expensive, obviously, but if I could get it for free...


And so, I plea to my followers and fellow bloggers: If you have, or know of anyone who has Pamper's Gift to Grow Points, please send them to me!

There is a sticker on every Pamper's product (diapers, wipes, etc.) with a 15-digit code on it. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE email me these codes (provided you're not using them...) at atasteofdysfunction@hotmail.ca . Every code that I recieve will get me closer to saving a little money that will apparently be going into my mouth instead.

So...yeah...I've begged...

I love the rewards programs on baby stuff. Those companies OBVIOUSLY realize that is it SUPER EXPENSIVE to have kids... and it is nice to see them give a little back.

Sure, it works to keep you as a consumer with brand loyalty... but if it means a free toy for the kidlets, then why not :)

(also, dentists/orthadontists are SUPER expensive.... luckily I have a great health plan... maybe when you get to school in September part of it will be covered so it will be more affordable to go on a regular basis.)

@jedi starrunner: It is awesome that they have these rewards programs. I've been browsing the rewards, and I can't wait to be able to 'cash in' my points for super awesome stuff.

And as far as the dentist thing goes...health plan or not, I've decided to start PUTTING MY MONEY WHERE MY MOUTH IS OOWAYOH! and fix up my teeth. :D I'm looking forward to it.
