Yesterday:

Grocery-- 1 quart of Breyers Rocky Road ice cream

CVS--The cashier was a manager and overrode the overages so I didn't get them... I'm sure that's in a policy somewhere, but I've never actually seen it done before. Hmph. I didn't (couldn't) complain, but it took away $6.60 in overages. Harumph.

So in the end, the freebies were:

2 more 12 packs of coke zero
2 gillette fusion shave gels
3 boxes of cheerios (regular, multigrain and peanut butter)
2 small bottles of palmolive

And I ended up paying a little less than the sale price on another item that would have been free if I'd had a different cashier...

Random note. I *DON'T* like the "CVS Cash Cards" they are giving away at the moment instead of ECBs. ECBs work like a coupon and lower the total BEFORE tax. Cash cards work like a gift card, taking off the value AFTER the tax has been added. So with our local sales tax, we get 6% more mileage from an ECB than a cash card.

I've been waiting until February arrived, to look back and try to find ANYTHING I got for free last month.

It seems the only things I got for free were negative things like bad weather and injury.

So: related to bad weather: I got free, good-neighbourly help to clear the snow; free good-neighbourly good cheer and jokes; forced to use the free-for-Seniors bus, since I couldn't drive in the unploughed snow . . .

. . . . This isn't getting very positive, is it? . . . .

Related to the injury, I got free moral and physical support and encouragement from MyLovelyMan. Oh - and free lessons in patience and gritting my teeth . . . Yes, they were worthwhile.

Maybe I just don't recognise the free positives when they come along.
