    Default What did you get free January 2020?

    New month, new year, new decade, new freebies!

    Expired food from the pig bins at the food shelf. Granulated sugar, 5 lb. bag. Gee I hope it isn't spoiled. Egg Noodles.

    Anything over 1 year past sell by date is put in for the pigs, even if it is something that doesn't go bad.

    I found a lottery ticket in my purse that I think a student gave me for Christmas, scratched it off and won $50!

    Got some avocados at the food shelf that were being thrown out (weekend). About half were good, the rest I made masks with. Mixed with olive oil for hair mask, mixed with aloe for face mask. Used both this morning, now I am BEAUTIFUL!!!! just kidding. I froze the rest in ice cube trays for future use.

    A quart of pecan halves from a fellow volunteer. Came in something I have never seen before in my 63 years, a dark brown glass canning jar. I didn't know they existed!

    My mother in law gave me her high end serger plus a bunch of the accessories, thread, etc. Woo hoo! I had been teasing her that I wanted her to will it to me when she passes and she said, well she wasn't really using it anymore, so she just handed it over.

    That's probably the Ball Amber jars. They just started producing them within the last few years. They have brought back a number of colors as limited editions (blue, purple, green, etc.).

    my friend gifted us a pork roast, a pkg of hamburger patties, a pkg of boneless pork chops. a loaf of wheat bread, a pkg of chibatta rolls, apples, plumbs, a bag of onions, a bag of potatoes, peppers, and an oreo dessert. Since we have an extra family living with us, she thought we could use the extra food
