    -2 pairs of panty hose (on clearance from CVS and used a coupon for the rest) had to pay $.34 tax

    -1 set of nail decals (bogo, paid $1.50 for the other set after ECBs)

    - 1 bottle of biore cleanser, free with purchase of biore pore strips

    - 1 box of biore pore strips free after coupons and ECB

    - 2 suave deodorants that were on sale $1 each, minus coupon $1/2, minus $1 ECB

    Still had $1 left in ECB (can't end a transaction in the negative,) so I bought DD5 a bouncy-ball she's been wanting for $1.40, but I made her pay the $.40!

    Nail stickers are great for a "fake" pedicure, the look pretty good and have lasted over a week. Face stuff and deodorant is for my teenage nieces. Stockings are for me, for work... a necessary evil.

    -Oh, and 4 pints and one 1/2 pint of peaches I picked off a wild tree near work and canned (already had all the canning stuff)

    Found a dime on the side of the road (no one else on the road, at a LONG red light, got off motorcycle and picked up)

    Co-worker cleared out her desk yesterday and bequeathed me a huge My Little Pony Coloring book she had in there... gave it to my daughters.

    Also been drinking free iced-tea all month from when I cleaned out the kitchenette in my new office-- literally 2 full garbage cans of expired stuff left behind by tenants of long-ago, but I kept the unexpired tea and the splenda packets and scrounged a pitcher and ice cube trays... should have enough to last me the rest of the month, which cuts down on my soda binges...

    Last Friday night I answered a last-minute call to babysit for a function for a group I'm part of (someone else fell ill) so I got a free dinner from the banquet the kids got really nice goodie bags, including coloring books, crayons, markers, and a copy of the Lion the Witch and Wardrobe (each... now I have to freecycle them because we already had that movie...) Oh, and I went to buy DD8 and myself a drink at the hotel shop, and DD8 got her lemonade for free just for being cute. I must not be cute because I had to BUY my soda...

    Three metal school desks for my boys - cleaned up, painted and good as new(ish)!

    What is better than three new desks for your kids’ rooms? Three FREE new desks! « The Keswick Blog

    See the link for the before and after pictures - got the desks for free but had to pay for the paint to clean them up.
