oooo ooooo I got house paint!! I was yard-sale shopping this morning and heard the homeowner say "oh and there's paint over there, free, if anyone wants it" so I jump on it. Two full unopened gallons, one white, one kinda light green, I think, plus quart sized primary colors and some bright white.
Not only are we painting trim and such around here, I'm painting a mural on a wall at the YMCA where I work, so I am excited!!

I never really get things for free, but this month I got some Bologna from my dad. He works for a company that ships the stuff to grocery stores. I ended up with two 13 inch logs of the stuff. I froze one and gave one to a friend that has 4 little boys. I also got some bacon from him too. The best thing though has to be the passes to get into Busch Gardens. Dh is military so we got in for free.(Anheiser Busch rocks!!)
This month I got for free:
150ct bottle of flinstone vitamins
jar of smuckers jelly
2 loaves of Wonder bread
2 sample size toothpastes
1 goodnight training pants
The bread was free because I emailed Wonder bread and complained that the bread had holes in it! They sent my 2 coupons for free bread!
The vitamins and jelly was because I emailed the companies and asked if they offered coupons or free samples. They sent me coupons for free products! Boy I wish I could find that website again that has all the links to the complanies! I had just started my frugal journey when I stumbled across it and didn't save it!
I do have to say that I am proud of my coupon use this month! I had a coupon for $1 off Right Guard deoderant and it was on sale for $1.99 so I got it for $0.99! Snuggle fabric softener was on sale for $2.99 and I had a coupon for $1 so I got it for $1.99!! I wish I knew someone that got the Sunday paper so I could swipe their coupons they don't use!
I had to share because it was my first time and I'm so excited! I can see how addicting this can become! LOL
