I am slightly reluctant to share this, since this is, after all, a family blog and not a coupon blog. But, at the encouragement of my sister, I will. I have a friend who is an extreme couponer, and yesterday, she gave me a lesson in how to get free stuff. Since she gave me all the coupons and told me where to go, I figured I would give it a try. So, ta-da! Here is my success story of the day:
7 Yakisoba noodle dinners: free
2 Frank's hot sauces: free
4 Dove candy bars: free
1 Suave kids' shampoo: $1
1 Olay facial cleansing wipes: $2.99 (This was my big splurge of the day--I figured they would be perfect to take on vacation, which is coming soon!!)
3 Blue Bell ice creams: $1.99 Each
Grand total: $11.01 after tax. Not bad considering the ice cream is normally $6/carton alone!
And speaking of free stuff, my cute neighbor gave me these today:
We were talking at the gym this morning about gardening. I mentioned that I wanted to start my own vegetable garden this year, and she dropped these by a couple hours later! How nice is that?!
