    I just picked up flower pots from a Freecycler. One of them I'm washing up, putting in some Chocolate Mint from my yard, and giving to my mom for Mother's Day. I gave her some before but for whatever reason it didn't survive. I'll give her a fresh batch to enjoy.

    Yah, I suck at this money stuff, I know. That's why I'm here.

    Tonight I got:

    *2 Skintimate shaving creams (I got a total of 4 this week)
    *2 Reach Total Care toothbrushes (I got a total of 8 this week)
    *1 Stayfree 24 count package (I got a total of four packs for the week)
    *1 Plackers 90 count Dental floss (Got two of these packs this week)

    Went to Walgreen's with $3 in Register Rewards. Paid $1.89 in tax plus my $3 RR. Walked out with my goodies and an $5 more in Register Rewards. Nothing like it when they pay you to take their stuff home.

    Too much stuff to keep track of, with our local town 'swap shop'! But my BIG find- a FREE wooden swingset. Yup, free. Cost us the $10 in gas we put in a buddy's truck to go pick it up, and $5 or so for some new dowels for new rungs. Will need a paint job too, but my 1 and 4 year old aren't complaining! Got if off freecycle, just happened to be online when it was 'posted'.

    We didn't have a swingset yet- I wanted a metal one, was far cheaper to purchase, hubby HATES the look of the metal ones, but wooden was outside our reach financially. I must have earned some good Karma somewhere!

    2 swings, a glider, a slide and a 'steering wheel', along with monkey bars and fort house.


    Kill the mortgage! Goal: 12/2023 Left to go: $140,160.33 Extra paid: 2012- $4408.03 2013-$5396.21+ $400 extra towards escrow
    2014-$3168.76

    About 15 vegetable seed packets! My local hardware store had a box with last years' seed packets in it, marked "free"!

    Whoopee!

    Do gifts count? Or just things we score through freecycle and such?

    Anything can count. My dad is notorious for bringing me boxes of cookies and 2-liter sodas. I always list them.
