    We've been collecting calendars too, from the hardware store, car dealership, lumberyard, car insurance carrier, and other businesses we patronize.

    We've gotten a few single-serving packages of candy from the grocery stores. If we split one, we can work them into our food plans.

    Sorry about the bronchitis.

    I did get a coupon for $5.off at Aldis 2x in November which I used to collect groc. for pantry. I earned another at the pharmacy so I guess free milk and bread. Gave DD my free strawberries at Meijers and let the $10.off age out. Forgot I got $32 off at Big Lot so I guess the comforter sized blanket was free.

    FREE LEAVES from neighbors yards!! Laughing! YES, I am the neighbor who knocks on your door and asks if I can have your trash bags full of leaves. My garden loves leaves and since I have limited trees in my yard and those leaves are garden gold I scout them out.

    Had lots of 'free' credits for FREECASH at Sears over Oct/November with no minimum purchase. Looks like the company caught on and now wants $30-50 minimum purchase. But got tons of clearance shoes, towels, tools and camping stuff cheaply for a while.

    Lots of free books using Opinion Outpost credits for Amazon digital gift certs. The buying discounted ebooks from Bookbub.com.

    Lots of free gift certificates from the other survey websites.

    Free food coupons for signing up for the email newsletters from some restaurant websites.

    free toaster oven from a friend to replace my m/w oven that finally became too scary to use.

    And I was planning to buy a 6-muffin tin to use in it, but found I already had one!! Does that count as a freebie?

    Dont think I mentioned the free roast I got. Cooked it tonight. Ate to our fill and have 2/3 left so I'll make a rice stir fry soon. Used salvaged onions I would have tossed. Did a foil wrap so no dishes.
    DH got a $100. GC to Best Buy. He is so gullible so I said oooh! I need a new stove. lol Mine is 28 yrs old but works perfect. I splurged on new drip pans from Big Lot!!
    DH also got a work allowance of $1300. to get a new work lap top.

    Just traded in 2200 Swagbucks for an AMC theaters gift card.
    We are big movie people, so any time I can get movie gift cards, I'm in!

    Cashed in SB for $25 PayPal.

    My daughter gave me some frozen food they will not eat - one smoked turkey breast, 2 smoked turkey legs, 4 smoked turkey butts (Yep, that's what they are called. Never seen them before, gonna be an experiment.) and some buns. The buns ended up being freezer burnt but the chickens will enjoy them.
