    Default What did you get free in August?

    I didn't see this posted yet so I'd like to start!

    I got:
    ~ a copy of the Sunday paper WITH all the coupons and sale flyers from my Grandma!
    ~ a free sample sized cafe mocha from McDonald's.

    free, I don't think I have gotten anything free.

    I did hit a buy one get one free sale, does that count? LOL--I had to pay though to get the free one..LOL

    I mean I swapped some of my farm pork for my friend Barb's beef from her dairy. Is that free? LOL

    I don't get alot of free stuff, I ain't the lucky type. Well...I do get stuff from Mom and all and it is free....but never that good score!!

    I was taken out to dinner for work last night to a really nice Italian place in town so I enjoyed that. I also got a shower gel sample in the mail the other day.

    Where do you get this free fabric??
    Last year we lost both our fabric stores and now the closest one is 50 miles away.
