Today I hit the mother lode. Someone took me shopping and this is what I received new for FREE:

Liz Clairborne hooded long down coat
winter dress hat
dressy scarf
red leather aigner gloves
14 pairs of socks
pair of heeled aerosole shoes
pair of adidas sneakers

It was a big shock since I was not expecting all of this. All I could do was say thank you all the way home.

Dinner tonight!

Leftovers from a work function lunch. They had beef brisket, chicken, baked beans, and potato salad from one of the top barbeque places in town. Jackpot!

Well, so far this month, I got a free check register given to me by my sister. Now that I rarely write checks, and pay our bills online, I'm going through check registers faster than my checks! :-\

I'll add to this as the month goes on. I am SO BLESSED to read this thread every month. It inspires me to do better!

brisket- mmmmmmmm......I haven't had that in a couple of years. I also get tons of free food from work - staff lunches and leftovers, etc. At least a couple of meals a month.

I got $40 of President's Choice gift cards free because of a Glade promotion. I used them the last time I was grocery shopping. The funny thing is that the Glade products I got free thanks to their 'Try Me Free' coupons. It's free all around. Woohoo!!!

I received 3 $10 off of $10 cards for Old Navy. I got a zip up jacket, pj pants and top, a work top and slipper socks for about $2.50. I also got my $10 ON CC reward that I am hanging on to until after Christmas.

QM - I would love to hear more about those Glade promos. Jlaporte - I remember all the aggravations from when my 2 were that age. No. 4 freebie for December would be a box of cookies from a client of my husbands. No. 5 was a Christmas dinner out at the Disney property. No. 6 was a free lunch from a df and No. 7 is the coupon inserts she gave me. Yep - December freebies are slow, but good.
