    You did great!! And I am so on board with you about not being able to stop oooing and ahhhing...lol! I do love the thrill I get when I can take home a bunch of groceries for at least half the price! And of course I'll take ANYTHING for free. I'll find somebody who will use it if I can't. Haven't had a problem doing that yet! I remember when the bags of kitty litter were free after store/mft coupons. I got 10 bags. And nope, we don't have a cat, but I sure found homes for all of it fast! Everybody LOVES a freebie, and I was happy to "share my wealth" with my cat lover friends!

    I loved seeing your lists! Thanks for posting them!!

    Good deals I'm with you about it being around 50% in savings now, rather than near 80%. Some weeks I get lucky and I can hit 75%...but most weeks, it seems like its right at exactly 50%. What's up with that? lol. But, I'm like you..and saving 50% is A LOT compared to paying *gasp* full price

    Tammy,

    There's a woman who wrote a book re what she does with free deals that she doesn't use: she donates the food/stuff to a woman's shelter, her church, etc. If we weren't drowning in stuff, I'd do that too, but there's just no way I have room or the time to spend figuring out deals for stuff we aren't going to use.

    Great deals -- good for you!!!
