    I want to know how SD gets all these free candy bars from the grocery store. I'm jealous.

    One of our local groceries always has a full page ad in the free local want ad paper, in addition to the large separate ad they put out in the weekly newspaper. The ad almost always includes a free item. Usually it's a candy bar (one per customer, and two people shopping together like we do can each get one). Sometimes it's a small package of snack crackers or a meat stick or some other little item, not always a food item. The rest of that ad usually has deep discounts on warehouse close-outs which include foods but might also be other items their warehouse needs to move. I got these red storage sets on top of my sewing room shelves for $5 per set, right when I needed something to fit that space, for example. They were selling online at that time for $22/set. I bought these three and then went back later for another one to fit on top of another cabinet, and luckily scored the very last one.


    Today we got two free candy bars from the store, Milky Way Caramel. (Sorry.)

    $50 Visa gift card from Mypoints. They have been consistently the best reward program, I've been with them for years and gotten hundreds of dollars in rewards.

    13# of frozen blueberries, 8 chickens, 4-6 eggs everyday - SIL owns and feeds the chickens so we have no money in them.
