Works for Me: Free Stickers!

I have a sticker-crazy child. If one side is sticky and the other has some bright colors on it, she's a happy camper. Unfortunately, she thinks any sticker within arms reach (you know, on top of the bookcase, where she can reach after she climbs onto the arm of the rocking chair) belongs to her. Even ever-increasingly expensive postage stamps.

However, after hiding the stamps on top of the fridge, I discovered a wonderful source for free stickers: credit card offers.

Who'da thunk it?

Seriously, though, at least 50% of the credit card offers that clog up our mailbox have some kind of stickers. Most of them are pretty basic ("Special Offer" and "Platinum Plus") but, some are even kind of cool, like Mickey Mouse Visa cards from Disney.

I just think of it as my own little addition to the recycling movement.

  1. I always give my daughter the movie club junk mail. They send hundreds of tiny movie pics. They're the kind you tear on the perforated line and lick to stick. It takes her HOURS to work through them.


  2. What a good idea! I could send many stickers your way! My mailbox is always full of those stickers!

  3. That's a good idea. I give my kids the stickers that come with calendars. You know, the ones that say Doctor, Birthday, Special Event, those ones. I find I don't use them and they have lots of fun with them instead.

  4. What a clever idea. My daughter is not so much into stickers anymore, but she used to love them.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Good luck on winning the book!

  5. Great idea! My son loves stickers too. I'll have to watch for those credit card offers. :)

  6. Isn't it funny how kids love stickers? There is something about them that keeps them intrigued.

  7. Junk mail can be such handy stuff!

  8. Ooh, I like this a lot. I can't tell you how many times I have caught my daughter stealing stamps!
