Yesterday morning I had Betty Crocker Mashed Potatoes waiting for me on my front porch - for FREE! That's right - a full-sized box of mashed potatoes with 2 packets inside, just waiting to be part of dinner one night. In addition to the box of potatoes was a $0.50/off one box coupon, which means (since my local grocery store doubles coupons up to $0.50) I'll get $1/off the next box and when combined with a sale, that means CHEAP instant (read - EASY) potatoes! WOO HOO!! How did I get this? About 6-8 weeks ago I signed up for a free "sample" online, and yesterday a full-sized box was waiting for me. [SIGH] Happiness is free (full-sized) samples of stuff you would normally buy.
Last night I ran down to the grocery to get some milk and before checking out decided to check my coupons to see if any great deal was about to expire. Glad I looked. Again, several weeks ago I signed up for a FREE box of Lipton teabags (up to $4) and that coupon was about to expire. I made my way to the tea aisle and came home with a box of 100 Lipton teabags for FREE (a savings of $3.48). [HAPPY DANCE]
Yes, I took a picture. [SMILE]
