Free Stuff

Here's a quick recap of last week's free stuff.
Giant Eagle- Always be on the look out for .75 cent coupons. Since Giant Eagle doubles coupons it can make for free items especially when paired with a sale. The sandwiches and gum were more then free but Giant Eagle doesn't give overage. (Overage is when your coupon is worth more then the product and it becomes a moneymaker. The balance of the coupon goes towards other items that you purchase.)

Freebies from my mailbox - The Teecinno was an organic chai sample. They sent enough to brew 6 cups which is a pretty nice sample. We did enjoy it. Too bad it's SO pricey.

Also, has anyone tried the Purex 3 in 1? I haven't tried mine yet but they sent enough for 3 loads. It kind of intrigues me. Throw in one strip and it's the detergent, the fabric softener and then you throw the sheet in the dryer with your clothes too. Hmmm....

As always, the best part of the Kotex sample is the coupon. It's usually a nice dollar value and it doesn't expire as soon as the ones you get in the paper or print online.

The pullup sample also comes with coupons. I always take those to the local library. They have a coupon swap of sorts. I take in the coupons that I'm not planning on using and get some that I would like to have. Great way to get extra coupons for items you really like.

CVS & Rite Aid - I have been learning that the bigger box is not always the better deal. Therefore, 4 little boxes for free is worth more to me then the 4 larger boxes I could have gotten for $.50 each. It comes down to what I spend OOP. (out of pocket) And with a new month almost all the coupons reset and I can get a fresh supply of coupons.
Hope you have a wonderful week! I am enjoying the beautiful sunshine that is streaming in my window at the moment. Makes me itch to start working in flowerbeds and the garden!

  1. Wow! Lots of great freebies! I used my Purex 3 in 1 sample. I wasn't too crazy about the smell, but they worked. :)
