Here's a look at the freebies I got on Tuesday:
The Soyjoy bar, Crest, Scope, floss and firearm safety video were mail freebies...the 2 tapas servers and sponge were free after that sweet $10/$10 coupon for Pier 1 (regularly $23.00...I paid a few cents in tax). Then I had coupons for free Phenom Coconut water, full size Pantene, & Lipton tea. The IAMS catfood was almost free after a $5.00 off coupon. The beautiful moth?? I found him deceased outside the Pier 1 store--for someone with a bug collection, it was like Christmas! (I know, I'm weird.) I LOVE this hobby!!
Yesterday, I helped my daughter set up her first checking account that included her life's savings and about $300 dollars more for her first college semester. She was feeling pretty excited ("reckless" was her word, actually) until she wrote the first two checks to her college. All of a sudden, looking up all her textbooks on http://www.half.com/ and going to Edward McKays to compare prices became very important to her. (Half.com won, by the way). I love it when the lightbulb comes on. When I went to bed last night, she was tallying her savings. That's my girl!
My boss gave me a b'day card today that said, "It's your birthday, do something CRAZY. Go to a restaurant without a coupon!" (Thanks, Jodi:) As you can see, I have a reputation. I also have a BOGO coupon for my birthday dinner tomorrow night.
God is so good and I am such a blessed woman. Thanks for reading, family and friends!
