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...)
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...
~ The newspapers for the last 2 weeks from friends who were on vacation.
~ Coupons from the family members who save them for me so I don't have to buy extra papers.
~ DS is at Home Depot this a.m. with DH making a free birdhouse at their kids workshop!
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.
I got a whole bunch of free stuff and I wish it could be otherwise - BG - a friend down here where we stay for the winter is having to leave early to go home for medical treatments unexpectedly. She is giving me what she does not want to carry back. I would give it all up to have her back to being healthy.
PS - can you please include her in your prayers, her name is Karen and she needs a healing from cancer. Thanks.
Yesterday used a free mcr sparkling 12 pack coupon for a free 12pk of cokes and by purchasing 6 lean cuisines I got a free 6ct box of skinny cow icecream sandwiches...I wish I'd thought to separate my order into two, since I bought 16 lean cuisines, I could have gotten 2 boxes of icecream free. Only food freebies so far this year but I'm NOT complaining!
