Yesterday's Freebie Shopping Trip

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone went to church today. We are blessed with so much that we should always remember to give thanks to the One who provides it - - God! Yesterday, the hubby and I went shopping. For many people, that involves going out on the town and spending a bunch of cash. For me, it represents the challenge and thrill of getting all I can for as little as I can. We went to five different places, and got freebies at every place except Dollar Tree. Oh, well. We only spent $5.30 there anyway! So what did we get and where did we get it?

Our first stop was Family Dollar. I had two $1.00 off coupons for Snausages Dog Treats. Family Dollar sells the 4.5 ounce bags for $1.00. So, we only had to pay tax for both bags of Snausages (12 cents). My "Good Guys"  (Puppy and Leonard) love these! Next, we went to Walmart since I had two $2.00 off any SeaPak product coupons. Walmart has these 6 ounce boxes of Shrimp Poppers (20 per box) for $1.96 each. So, not only did I get these two boxes of shrimp for free, but I got 8 cents change! This almost covered the tax on the Family Dollar Snausages! Unfortunately, they are all out of prints on - - understandably quickly since these were both great deals on things we and others actually would have purchased anyway!

After enduring Wallyworld, we went for a bite to eat at Honey Baked Ham. I told you about the free Ham Classic sandwich for signing up for their email club. We stopped in to redeem ours, and decided to dine in. We were pleasantly surprised with our sandwich, chips and pickle! I know I have posted the link before a couple of times, but here it is again, just in case you haven't yet taken advantage of this tasty offer: Honey Baked Rewards Sign-up.

On our way home, we stopped at Kroger. Kroger had sent me a coupon for a free loaf of bread with a $10 purchase, plus I had loaded the Free Friday Download item, Dannon Oikos Yogurt, to my card. We spent around $50, got everything on our list, and ended up with these two freebies. If you shop at Kroger and don't take advantage of the surveys on the bottom of your receipt for 50 bonus fuel points (this is also why they sent me a coupon for bread), or if you've never downloaded any of the Free Friday Download items, then you are missing out. Go over to and check it out!


Since we have to go out anyway to get groceries and household items, it always makes it nicer to be able to get a few freebies as well. Have a fun, frugal and fabulous evening, from our house to yours!
