Debunking blogging myths by Stacie: Everything I get in the mail isn't free.

Disclaimer: This post contains Affiliate Links.

I been blogging since 2012 and I get a lot of packages in the mail. Some days, I get some. Some days, I get a lot. Some days, I get none. One big misconception is some people think everything I get in the mail is free, when reality is some things I actually buy and some, I get for review at a discounted price.

I get samples and sometimes, I win a giveaway too.

For example, I have a Fabletics membership and a Disney Movie Club Membership. I get Graze Boxes every two weeks.

I order Kalen's diapers and other items from Amazon each month because it's cheaper than Wal-Mart.

I realized people think I get everything for free, when my niece thought my workout outfits, I got every few months, was free.

I had another people ask me the same thing. Did you get it for free? Nope, I paid for this. Nope, I was asked to cover a portion of the costs.

Yes, I know you I have an amazing glamorous blogging life. :-). I love getting things in the mail for free, whether it's a product review or a free sample. But that snack box or that outfit or that box of diapers was paid with a cold, hard, debit card from my personal account, including the two-day shipping

Have a blessed day.


  1. You need to start downloading some apps that pay you amazon giftcards or paypal cash for free so you can purchase the diapers with an e giftcard and amazon won't charge your debit card. I purchase all my stuff with egiftcards.

    1. That's a good idea when I buy me a newer model phone. I don't have the memory for extra apps :-) What apps do you recommend?
