    Default What did you get free in March 2012?

    Could find the February 2012 thread, but no March thread so I am starting this one.

    I packed a friend's apartment and got the following for free:

    External hard drive NEW IN THE BOX
    Three boxes of tools
    2 burner hot plate
    Toaster oven (newer than mine)
    Box of cereal

    Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

    I received two different laundry detergent samples in the mail this week.

    I bought a 90.4 oz bottle of Ghiradelli Caramel sauce at the salvage store (hubby puts it in his coffee) for $3.99. I knew it was a good deal, but I didn't know how good of deal until I saw it in the store today for $29.99. So $3.99 is almost free! Hubby is SO happy and it will last forever!

    MIL just called and said to come get her king-sized mattress and box springs! They are downsizing. It's only a couple of years old, pillow top, etc. ANYTHING is better than our older than dirt KS mattress.

    I went to a garage sale today, and the lady had some free items. I got 3 bird feeders, and a frog wind chime. Then not free, but almost.......2 rooster pillows were .25 each. A wood heavy basket for 50 cents.

    She had some curtain rods that were free. I didn't grab them, but maybe I should have. Must be something I could have done with them around here.

    I picked up a free wooden deck chair frame at a garage sale today. It needs minor repair, and I already have a cushion for it. It'll be nice when we get our new deck built later this year.

    At the same sale, I got two free lever-style vintage aluminum ice cube trays. I use those a lot and they're HTF, so I was happy.

    At another sale, I got two sheets of 2x4 plexiglass which I use to repair bear-damaged bird feeders throughout the year. I also got a metal pole with four expensive swivel steel clips, and a scrap of non-skid stuff about 2x2. At the same sale, I picked up two like-new Pyrex baking pans with lids that were marked $10 for the pair. I gave the guy a $10 bill and he held out a five. I said no, they were $10. He said 'oh, well' and gave me the five! Who was I to argue?

    I got a free quart of paint at Ace Hardware.
