    ~4 pre-release books from Goodreads Giveaways. I started entering them in mid-April. Won my first, a signed author copy, on Passover, and four more this month. I've entered about 300 total and take about 15 minutes a night to enter for any books that sound interesting. Odds are generally very good, 1/100 or better. ~

    Lots and lots of free bread and cooked potatoes (2 day old from a soup kitchen, they were going to throw them away!). I made bread crumbs with them, my wife my bread pudding, and a cheesy potato dish, really good, the potatoes were a little grainy but not bad with plain yogurt.

    A bunch of storage containers from work. I have plans to use them for a wood/electronic shop in the basement.

    Colored pencils, acrylic paint, page protectors. All from work. The company is moving soon and they're giving lots away.

    I know I have a few more.. not many.. but this receipt is actually sitting in front of me.
    1 bag chips ( BOGO ) Broke down comes to $2.15 each but he needed something here for the 2 snacks he has to have at work. Cheap enough but one was free.
