What did you get free in July 2020

THought I'd start us off. On Sunday some neighbors I hadn't really met yet stopped by to offer me free stuff because they are moving (trying to escape confusion and stressed people...I guess they are moving to Mars?)

They offered up many things but I said only what others couldn't use and what I really could use.
Free outdoor rocker, needs some bolts tightened. Already used it.
Free metal roofing/siding. Hauled it up to the pallet pile so I can make a chicken jail (where chickens with questionable habits are kept to see if they straighten up or if it's possible egg peckers and egg hiders)

Free treated wood posts! Nice.
A round post. They put it in when I wasn't looking. I'll find a use for it or burn it
An antique milk can full of hardware bits and bobs! I offered to pay but they said "nope" so I said THANK YOU.
I showed up with some homemade treats and they seemed to like that.

Martha- Sounds like some great treats from the family.That was nice of them.

I got $15 in swagbucks so I got an ebay GC and picked up a book about the banking world for DH for Christmas.

A $10 GC to Target and spent it on water and TP today.
I got 2 magazine subscriptions (eating well & all recipes) from airline miles.

I also got 3 gift cards using CC points that will be given as gifts, although one will be used to buy an actual birthday gift.
