lots of free stuff yesterday and today

January 14th, 2011 at 02:02 pm

I had to go in town for a dr appt yesterday and took the opportunity to run errands. I had 5 Border's bucks at Borders and used a 33% off coupon to get a book for .33, which I paid for using a free gift card for my credit card reward. Free book

I stopped at Albertson's where they had a buy 8 get $4 off sale. As part of the sale I got:

2.98 - 2 tubs I can't believe it's not butter
-1.00 - wyb 8 sale discount
-2.00 - 2 $1 q's
.02 profit

2.00 - loaf of whole wheat bread on sale
-2.00 - free wyb 2 I can't believe it's not butter

4.47 - 3 jars Ragu spaghetti sauce
-1.50 - wyb 8 discount
2.97 - got back a $1 RR making them .66/each

5.97 - 3 boxes Frosted Flakes
-1.50 - wyb 8 discount
-1.10 - wyb 2 q
3.37 - these go to the food pantry

I got a car wash to get the big chunks of ice and crud off the car - $7. I miss the days of free car washes when you filled your tank.

At the Dr's he told me my kidney is leaking calcium. Calcium is what is causing my kidney stones. Based on my tests I have the second highest calcium retention number in my urine that he's ever seen. I've always been an over-achiever Smile Anyways I now have a new medicine to take to stop this and I also have to take 1200 mg of fish oil/day.

I met my mom at Red Robin for my free bday burger. It was 9.44 before the coupon discount so I chipped in a $1.50 in tip for my meal. She wasn't feeling very good, so I felt bad she thought she had to meet me. My youngest niece has mono and strep throat and she breathed all over mom and me on Sunday when we met for lunch. Fortunately I didn't get sick yet. Mom was feeling much better today so not sure if she had the strep throat or what. She had a very sore throat and felt tired/achy, but feels really good now. Don't know if only lasts one day.

After lunch I went to Target. I had a coupon for $10 gift card when you get a new prescription filled and I used it when I got my new med filled. It cost $2.44. I spent $9.83 on the stuff I bought at Target so that was all free with the $10 gift card and I have .17 whole pennies left to splurge with Smile

While waiting for the prescription to be filled I was checking out the fish oil. Target had 60 ct 1200 mg Nature Made fish oil on sale for half price $5 and I had $5 coupons. So I got 4 bottles for free, or almost if you don't count taxes Smile When I got home I added the points to my Nature Made Wellness account and I had enough to order a $7 coupon.

I also got 2 free trial sizes of Tide at Target and they had deal of Ponds cleaning cloths wyb 30 get 10 free and I used a $1 Target q to get 40 for 3.96 - good price.

Today I went to King Soopers for groceries. I needed stuff I didn't have coupons for like milk, veggies and meat. I only had 3 coupons for which I got 1 lb of baby carrots free and 2 large tubes of Colgate toothpaste free. The toothpaste goes to the food pantry. The rest of my groceries added up to 30.11. I used my pharmacy RX coupons to pay for all of it - so more free groceries.

To summarize in the last 2 days I got the following for free:

1 book
2 tubs butter
1 loaf bread
1 burger at Red Robin
1 lb mini carrots
2 tubes of Colgate toothpaste
4 bottles Nature Made fish oil pills
2 trial size Tide
10 Ponds cleasning cloths
$10 of stuff at Target
$30 groceries at King Soopers

I finished reading my book Embrace the Night by Karen Chance. Paranormal - ok.
