    Default Wbat did you get for free in December 2012?

    Wow, guys, we ROCKED November, I have to say... think it'll keep going in December? I hope so! So keep posting your amazing freebies...

    Today I got one of the My Coke Rewards $25 Walmart Gift Cards... don't know what that will end up getting used for... I'll post it here when I finally get around to using it.

    Also 18oz Jif Peanut Butter and a package of store-brand cream cheese. That is the last of the come-hither freebies from the local store... boo hiss. I love it when they do that.

    Got some free coupons (Grandma keeps her's for me!) so I didn't have to buy an extra paper. Got a free 2013 calendar from church.

    Hubby and I attended our Harley Owners Group Christmas party last night. We paid $5 each to attend. We were fed a fabulous meal with appetizers, desserts, and soft drinks. Hubby won a men's Harley robe as a door prize (I won a pink one last year) and I won a Harley bag that will fit on the back of hubby's Fat Boy perfectly. Retail value of both - over $100 - WOO HOO!

    Here in Canada, we had Shoppers Drug Mart's Mega Redemption sale for our optimum points. I cashed in my 35,000 points and got $70 towards my purchase. Mostly stocking stuffers for us, but due to a nice little deal on Clear shampoo ($0.99 with coupon), I was able to use another coupon that said Buy 1 bottle of Clear Mens shampoo, get a bottle of Vaseline Men's lotion for free! I got two full size bottles of lotion for free!

    Also this weekend, my mother stopped buy with the following gifts from my aunt who was clearing stuff out of her overstuffed apartment:

    ~ two pairs of handknit socks
    ~ six or seven gardening books
    ~ a pair of sheer curtains (ugly, we passed them on to the thrift store)
    ~ a bright table cloth for our patio set (which, btw was also free last year!)
    ~ pillow shams for a bedding set she'd given us
    ~ five or six skeins of yarn (slippers, here I come!)

    Lots of great goodies! Also got my coupons in the mail -- lots of fun to be had there!

    1 Silk Soymilk apron from a facebook contest they had several weeks ago. (Bonus... it's red so it matches my kitchen perfectly)

    Ordered new pots and pans last night and was pleasantly surprised that there was a free bonus pan coming. I looked it up, it's a 70.00 pan if you buy it separately!

    Also ran to the store last night for rice because we're all out and ended up buying quite a bit more but used a free 10.00 gift card and 6.00 in store coupons and paid 1.40 for 17.00 worth of stuff so mostly free. Here's what we bought
    Graham crackers and marshmallows (for brownie smores)
    iced coffee
    2 bags brown rice
    2 boxes rice mix
    1 bag organic baby carrots
    1 bag of Hormel pepperoni

    Hoping that December is as good to me as November was!

    So far, all I've gotten was a box of Betty Crocker potatoes in the mail today.

    Homemade Graham cracker crust (crushed grahams with butter) smooshed into the bottom of a pan. Pour brownie batter on top and bake. Just before they're done sprinkle mini marshmallows on top and broil for 30-45 seconds to toast marshmallows.
