These are all the things that I got for free this week through the use of coupons or by requesting samples. It does not include things I got at drugs stores or office supply stores and got full rewards back for. I did get some of them at drug stores, but using coupons only.

One of my favorite morning rituals is reading "Dear Abby" with my morning coffee. Now I subscribe to a lot of different magazines, but not a daily newspaper. So, I have Abby delivered to my inbox daily. Go HERE to read today's column and subscribe if you would like to receive it daily. I will warn you, sometimes it goes to my "junk" folder.


Would you like a free photo book from Kodak. If so, go HERE to create an account and then sign in to create your free 14-page photo book. If yo re already a member, then just sign in HERE. At checkout enter the code TGTFREEBOOK. All you pay is $1.99 shipping. I have one of these books and it is great.


Are you a member of Victoria's Secrets' Pink Nation? If you are, log in to print your coupon for a free limited edition tank top with any pink nation purchase. If you are not yet a member go HERE to join and then request your coupon. While on the site, you can also get a coupon to buy a $20 t-shirt dress for just $10. I do not know if these 2 coupons can be used together, but it is worth a try. A few months ago I had a coupon for a free pair of PINK panties, and I must say that they are the most comfortable ones that I have. So if the coupons can not be used together, maybe I'll buy a pair.


I made a second CVS trip this week, even though I really did not need anything else. I had some ECB's that were expiring, and that would be like throwing money in the trash. Um, don't think so! And as you all know, I always try to buy things that will give me ECB's back. Here is what I bought.
4 Stayfree
2 CVS paper towels
2 Herbal Essence
4 Dove Deodorants
2 Degree Deodorants
Total paid oop was $2.65
Used $15.00 ECB's
Received $14 ECB's
Total cost of everything $3.65.
$2.50 of this was tax, so actual cost was $1.15.

I can remember many years ago when Pssst Dry Shampoo was very popular. It is a spray that you apply to your hair and then brush out. It absorbs excess oils, therefore "dry-washing" your hair. Evidently, they are promoting it again. Go HERE to request your free sample. I bought some of this a few years ago when my Father-in-law was bed-ridden and it really helped.


Bi-Lo had another big BOGO sale this week. While I didn't need much, I could not pass up some of the great deals. Everything that you see in this picture cost me just 8.89. Total before sale prices and coupons was 93.96. Almost unbelievable!

Ritz Ceackers are great, but have you tried the new Ritz Munchables? Go HERE to become a fan on Facebook and receive your free sample. In the past, the samples that I have received for becoming a Facebook fan have been the full-sized product. Don't know it that will be the case here or not. Guess I'll find out in 4-6 weeks.

I went to CVS to stock up on deodorant, as if I don't already have enough. I had lots of coupons, as usual, and I ended up making 39¢. Not a big amount, but when you consider that I got all these goodies AND 39¢, I'd say that's pretty good. I bought:

I have not had the opportunity to try the Finish Quantum Dishwashing system, but I think now may be the time. I went HERE and clicked on "coupons and offers" and printed $# off coupons. Rumor has it that some Wal-Marts have these on clearance for $3 right now. That would be a great deal.


I just spent a few minutes browsing to check out their new coupons. There is a great coupon for 75¢ off Gold Medal Flour right now. I say "great" because we seldom find coupons on the basics like flour & sugar. There are lots of other great coupons available also. To check them out, simply click on "see all coupons" on the scrolling link on my sidebar and then on the emblem in the lower right-hand corner. This will allow you to view each page and choose what you want to print.

Loreal is offering two more free sample of their hair care products. Just go HERE to request your samples. While there you may want to print the coupons available, especially the one for $2 off any eye product. I happen to know that CVS often has some of these products marked 75% off. Could make for a really good deal.

I really hit it lucky with my "free" coupons this time. I had a coupon for a free half-gallon of chocolate milk that I got when I entered a sweepstakes online. I also had a coupon for a free box of Oreo Cakesters when you buy Oreos, and another one for a free pack of Nabisco cookies when you buy a gallon of milk and another pack of cookies. This is what I got:

1 gallon Milk
1/2 gallon chocolate milk (free)
1 pack Oreos
1 pack Oreo Cakesters (free)
1 pack Oreo Fudgies(free)

I paid 5.74 for all of this. I think I got a good deal.
