    I found 11 cents in the Harley dealership parking lot yesteday (that's a total of 27 cents)

    Went to the dentist today because I broke off part of a crown. Good news - The crown is 3 years old and has a 5 year warranty. I only knocked off a little of the porcelain, the tooth is protected, and I can call back and make my appointment to have it replaced at my leisure. It will cost me nothing - WOO HOO!

    Got a makeup bags with some small items in the mail from Target today.

    went to my local "recycling/swap" shed in town and got TWO first-generation Ipod shuffles with all kinds of docks, cords, software, etc. WOOHOO!! I have wanted an MP3 player for the longest time. I checked them out and batteries are good. I will have fun putting songs on them, I love music.

    All good FREE things come to she who waits.

    I found another dime today.
    Hubby won a leather cigar case with a cutter.
    Hubby also found a $20 bill at the end of our driveway this morning. Unfortunately it was counterfeit! So we are turning it over to the police.

    I had a free lunch and beer at work today.

    We were given clothes for our 11 year old from a neighbour - dresses, knee socks and tights mostly, but it's awesome because that is what she needs!

    I used my $5 Amazon gc from SwagBucks to buy a book on Iowan ghost stories...and still have a dollar left! It was a penny, plus $3.99 shipping, lol.

    I scored some free yard sale leftovers: Legos/Hungry, Hungry Hippos/toy gas station set/Potty training video for my son.

    A co-worker gave me the most beautiful and exotic looking silver ring. She said she was cleaning out her jewelry box and thought of me!

    It's not exactly free, but you'll see why I'm so tickled:

    Rite Aid had their Calgon body mists at 75%off , and I had a coupon from the Calgon site for $1.00 off any full sized item.

    I picked up a 8 oz bottle of Marshmallow that had a sticker of $6.99 on it, it rang up at $1.74, so I paid 74 cents with my coupon!

    I like to spray the bedclothes, it makes them smell so nice.
