    You totally beat me to starting the thread this month, you wascally wabbit!!!

    But I get the first freebie post. Hah! ;D Today I got a free blender off Freecycle. I had one break a few months ago, so I took the one off the bar that we never use (the bar AND the blender never get used...) and even though that one was a fairly expensive one, I managed to break it too... but someone got a "ninja blender" (WTH????) for Christmas and gave their old, normal blender to me. Yay!

    The other one broke right after Black Friday, and I just couldn't bring myself to pay $29 for a blender I *know* was $15 only a month before... so now I have a nice, new blender... jammed into the hall closet with all the other stuff I just purged from the kitchen because... say it with me... the contractors are coming tomorrow to demolish my kitchen YAY!!!! (Now, if only THAT were free...)

    Woohoo!!
    with my ECB at CVS I picked up a package of 40count tampons and 28 pads (CVS brand BOGO 1/2 off). FREE!

    Edited to include: I typically use homemade pads but I like these for travel (which I will be doing this weekend) Just in case that weight gain was from my period gain.

    Well does dental work count? I work in the dental field so it is one of my perks. My son needed a filling and a few sealants so my awesome boss did them the other day for him.

    uhh, YEAH!! Heck yes that counts! I'm jealous! My "full dental" cost me $35 mo in premiums AND I'm out hundreds/thousands whenever the kids need work... I just noticed a small spot on DD9's tooth this morning and am hoping it's not what I think it is... (next appt is in March, we'll know then... until then, LOTS of flouride...

    You win, best freebie ever!

    Free product coupon plus $1.70 in other coupons, for complaining about Gold Medal White WW flour. Had big brown things (bran?) in it. Looked browner than reg. WW flour.

    Almost 1/2 gal milk from neighbors who are going away for a week.

    Full size bag of Hill' s Science Diet Ideal Balance Fruity Snacks. The dog doesn't seem to care for them at all. They look yummy though.

    I received a free Fireball Whisky shot glass in the mail today.
    I received notification yesterday that I won a festive holiday gift set from Oneida. We will see what the mail brings in a couple of days.

    Hmmm... I would say I got 2 free 16-pack cubes of Charmin, and a pack of M&Ms (using ECBs)... but depending on how you look at it, it could just be one pack of the TP that was "free"...

    Bought:
    -3 16 packs of Charmin, reg price $15.77
    -1 pack M&Ms, Reg price .99
    Paid $15.3 (received $10 ECB for future purchase as well)

    But since the Charmin was on sale for $10/pack... you could argue that I only got 1.5 packs for "free" and paid the sale price for the other 1.5.

    Hubs was just complaining there was no TP in the downstairs bathroom this morning... now there are 48 double rolls ... careful what you wish for!
