I just picked up flower pots from a Freecycler. One of them I'm washing up, putting in some Chocolate Mint from my yard, and giving to my mom for Mother's Day. I gave her some before but for whatever reason it didn't survive. I'll give her a fresh batch to enjoy.

Went to Walgreen's with $3 in Register Rewards. Paid $1.89 in tax plus my $3 RR. Walked out with my goodies and an $5 more in Register Rewards. Nothing like it when they pay you to take their stuff home. :thumb:
Too much stuff to keep track of, with our local town 'swap shop'! But my BIG find- a FREE wooden swingset. Yup, free. Cost us the $10 in gas we put in a buddy's truck to go pick it up, and $5 or so for some new dowels for new rungs. Will need a paint job too, but my 1 and 4 year old aren't complaining! Got if off freecycle, just happened to be online when it was 'posted'.
We didn't have a swingset yet- I wanted a metal one, was far cheaper to purchase, hubby HATES the look of the metal ones, but wooden was outside our reach financially. I must have earned some good Karma somewhere!
2 swings, a glider, a slide and a 'steering wheel', along with monkey bars and fort house.
Three plants from bf: bleeding heart, columbine, double columbine and I still have $10 leftover on gift card.
Food at work all week, it was teacher's appreciation week but we all get to enjoy the goodies. One day was breakfast burritos, another day was nachos which lasted 2 days, one day was breakfast muffins/pound cakes/bagels spread and one day was desserts of all kinds. (to those who care, was not purchased with district money, it was from ptso and those sorts of groups) :cents:
Free iced mocha on..Monday I think, my friend was having a super-duper craving and invited me along. :hat:
Free soda when I visited my mom last weekend.
Free advice from car guy; granted I paid to have the car fixed but the one guy spent extra time talking to me about my specific car to help me out in the future. Thought that was worth mentioning, he really didn't have to.
