    Today I got about 1 3/4 lbs of red grapes using that $5 Food Lion coupon I posted over in "general chat." They did not have any great sales, so I went with the grapes because DDs have been asking for them, and they're so darned expensive. It was nice to give them a treat that was not sugary Christmas junk AND did not cost me anything (actually, I did pay a little bit because getting to exactly $5 wasn't going to happen... but I figure those were the ones I ate before I picked the kids up.)

    Anyway, it was nice. Free fresh fruit doesn't happen much...

    Also got 53 coke points from the recycling.

    Breakfast for the kids was "free" this morning using the $5 McDonald's gc I got from MyCokeRewards... I just didn't feel like cooking. Their lunch is free today, as well, since the daycare is full-day today with school being out, so that's $5.20 I'm not paying for school lunches (all meals included with daycare fees.)

    I'm not going to bother listing off Christmas gifts, just actual freebies. Today I came home with a container full of homemade cookies from a friend who doesn't like cookies and an Easy Bake oven from Freecycle -- going right into my gift closet for a future gift.

    Redbox movie for free. I bought a gift card and Redbox sent me a free movie coupon us to use. Still have two more to us before end of December.

    Also watched two free new releases from our public library.

    Arthur Christmas was quite a fun Family Christmas movie.
