    Default What did you get free in January?

    I had to fill a prescription today. I received a $20 GC and a $10 GC from Target using a home mailer coupon booklet.

    I then used those two GCs to pick up some Christmas clearance merchandise at 75% off. I am replacing my outside wreaths and garlands because they are over 15 years old and quite pathetic. I also bought a Christmas card making kit for next year, basket filler, some generic ribbon and gift boxes. Even though I recycle gift boxes, I went through all of my stash and the only things left are two small shirt boxes.

    A lightbulb! My neighbor said I have to try the kind he likes and produced a brand new one from his basement.

    Oh and pea soup(that I put in the freezer for a "lazy" cooking day)

    More to come ( I hope! )

    I don't know if we count BOGO items here. I usually think of them as just two at 50% off. But today I picked up the BOGO 500 count ibuprofen at Walgreens. I'm going to switch to that for my arthritis for a while, so it was a really good deal. A little over a penny a tablet. I won't have to buy that again for a very, very long time!

    ~ A copy of Country Woman magazine.
    ~ A necklace and three bracelets from an aunt who was going through some jewelry in an effort to declutter--these were gifts from people she works with overseas and she simply doesn't wear these anymore.
