Week of Free Part 2

wwek of free

As my week of free continues (see the first post here), I have to say it’s gone pretty well (aside from one annoyance). I have more money in my “Grocery” envelope than I would normally have had at this time of the week, and we are all well-fed! I feel like I’ve been running all over the place this week, which I’m not really thrilled with. I’m happy with my freebies though! Here is the breakdown of what these trips contained:

BUT, not without hassle during my week of free. I had my Walgreens Ad with me for the price match on these. I was directed to the service counter where the cashier proceeded to examine the ad and the coupons, practically with a magnifying glass. After about 10 minutes of me waiting, she finally continued to check me out. BUT, for some reason, the 3 count box was NOT taxed, and the 4 count box WAS. So, I’m headed back there because I didn’t catch that.

Use  Use: $1/1 Gold Bond Body Powder (Printable Coupon NLA)

My most exciting freebie so far was this awesome hoodie for my son’s 10th birthday that I got from the new JCPenny Store! I had gotten a $10/$10 Purchase coupon and this was only $10 with their “Best Price.” We have no tax in Minnesota on clothing, so this was 100% FREE!

Mailbox Freebies

My week of free concluded at the mailbox. When I got the mail I was super excited to find two awesome freebies there too! One bottle of Olay Complete Moisturizer that I had signed up for months ago, and one bottle of Shea Organics Rose Hips Black Soap Facial Cleanser!

All in all this week has been fantastic for freebies for me! It has forced me to really watch my money, organize my coupons and watch the sales! I’d call this week one for the FREEBIE Record Books! There are two more days left in this week! Stay tuned for my total savings throughout this week!
