    Did well at our city's Fourth of July parade and pre-fireworks festivities:

    1. Rubber bracelet
    2. Fan
    3. Box of toothpicks
    4. Candy
    5. Bottled water

    All of those were from candidates in the parade, lol. At the pre-fireworks festivities we got:

    6. Two hours worth of inflatables time...my son jumped in those bouncy houses until we finally physically removed him. Luckily, the company that provided the free inflatables is located right across the street from us, and lets kids come in and "bounce" for a small fee in their "floor models."

    7. Sno-Cones
    8. Cotton Candy
    9. Ice cream
    10. Watermelon
    11. Bottled water
    12. Large bag of gourmet cotton candy flavored popcorn from a local vendor because the color didn't turn out right.

    Other:
    13. 64 count baby wipes
    14. A total of 5 cents so far in found pennies
    15. Coupon booklet for P&G products

  4. Remove Advertisements

    I am such a happy camper. I am getting a free china cabinet.

    They tried to sell it on CraigsList, but it didn't sell so they put it in for free the classifieds ads intranet site that my employer has for employees. I went by to see it today and it is solid wood and in great shape. I do have to hire help to get it home so I won't be able to pick it up this weekend.

    Thanks to my dad, I've gotten loads of cucumbers and 2 tomatoes from his greenhouse! And, thanks to his love of Costco and bulk shopping, he's passed along grapes, tortillas, bananas, and some salad. Thanks, dad!

    1/2 gal. soymilk (coupon)
    box matches - 50 books - (coupon) -- I always need matches for my wood cookstove, and since so many places are non-smoking, it is hard to find free ones anymore.
