I just love freebies! And cheap stuff, too.

September 30th, 2007 at 07:35 pm

Today I went to lunch at Cheddar's with my mother, stepfather, and some of their friends. I didn't have to pay so it was a very nice free lunch and I brought home quite a bit of my Dijon Mushroom Chicken and will have that tomorrow for lunch or supper. That was my first time at Cheddar's and I imagine I'll go back some time.

In yesterday's mail I got 25 coupons for a free bottle of Country Bob's all purpose or spicy hot sauce. I just love that sauce and will buy it when I have no coupons but I'm happy to do as Al asked and get 4 bottles for myself and give away the other 21 bottles. I have no problem spreading the word about such a great sauce! If you haven't tried it, go to countrybobs.com for a coupon for a free bottle of it. Tell 'em Denise sent ya. Wink

I also got a very pretty hand made hot pad from a friend online. It's varying shades of green and looks nice in the kitchen.

And today I finally found a clothes line for inside the house. My back yard, if you can call it that, is too small for a line and I wanted something that would work inside. Today I found a retractable clothes line for less than $7 so I bought it and installed it over the tub. It has shorts drying on it and so far, so good. Anything that helps save me money is a good thing! $7 isn't much to pay to stay out of laundrymat, huh?

And I've now spent all but $6 of the $50 I got for groceries for 2 weeks. But I'm set for boneless skinless chicken breasts, ground beef, frozen vegetables, and coffee. Yaaaaay!

It's been a good couple of days for freebies and cheap stuff. Smile

    I have a coupon for Country Bob's sauce, but can't find any place that sells it where I live.
    Freebies are nice though!

    Fern, I got the clothes line at what my sons call "the stuff place" - Wal-Mart Supercenter. It seems they're the only ones around here that sell them. It seems to be a sturdy one, too.

    Nance, have you emailed Al at countrybob's and asked him where to get it in your area? It's worth the effort. Smile

    Hello, I was looking for photos of cats when I found your photo of a cat in a tree. I liked it and went into the source of yhe photo where I started reading what you've written. I also love free-bees or near bree-bees! I grew up getting hand me downs from daughters of friends of my parents and I loved getting then. Whole bags or boxes of new (for me) stuff to check out! Now, I like treasure hunting in the second-hand store or the church basement where they hold a weekly rummage sale. I'm writting to you from the center of Quebec, in Canada. We have already had frost on the ground a few mornings and for halloween, generally we have to get costumes which fit over jackets, hats and boots.
    I enjoyed reading your thoughts,
    Good day,

    Vickie, thanks for the kind note! I'm glad you found the picture of Bob in the tree and also glad you enjoyed what you've read here. I hope you keep reading! Smile
