A gift basket! I went to a craft sale and didn't buy a thing, but entered the draw for a gift basket. I won! DH and I have been snacking out of it, and I think I have Christmas presents from the rest of it.
~Today I got a full-sized BBW lotion for buying a $25 gift card(which DH is using to buy gifts for me with).
~Another full-sized BBW lotion with any purchase($3.50 sample and coupon).
~4 wire framed canvas storage bins, marked down to $2.50 from $7 at Lowes. Used a $10 off $25 purchase(needed paint and CFL's) coupon and got em free!
Several gladware tubs of fruit from an event at our office.
Free sunscreen sample--should be good for a stocking stuffer!
A $25 gift certificate to a spa here in town. I think this should also be good for some Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers!
Even though yesterday was still November, I'll count the free lunch I got at the office!
A new Christmas ornament from an aunt of mine.
2 tubes of toothpaste
Monopoly game (Hasbro buy 2 get 1 free sale) - one of my angel kids wanted the Electronic Banker version, so I bought that and Operation and got the Here and Now version free
$50 Rite Aid gift card (for filling a new Rx)
These items will go in the box for the domestic violence shelter - family games and toothpaste were on their wishlist!
I got 4 coupons for free Bryers ice cream (up to $6.00) in the mail because I complained about the ice cream having a piece of plastic in it on their website.
Free magazine from Elle Decor
Free sample of Folgers coffee
a whole lot of organic body washes and shampoos
replacement whoozie-me-watsits (that hold the shelves on) for our tv cabinet - a couple had broken so one of the shelves wouldn't sit right so I found the manual with the part number and emailed the company that manufacturers the cabinet and they sent me 4 replacements for free
