It's been a day of freebies for us. I had heard about our favorite ice cream place giving away free cones if you wear your pajamas on Thursday when I went out with a friend there. Free ice cream! Who could pass that up?

So, our day started off with free ice cream in a waffle cone for me, Juice and Butterfly. Butterfly got the pink one (strawberry) and it was as big as her head. Seriously! She ate the whole thing too. Juice got blueberry cobbler (not vanilla! I know!) and I got raspberry truffle. Each cone would have cost around $3.50 for each. So, $10.50 saved!

Next on our list was a free burger from Arby's with this coupon. Arby's is kind of far from us. I had a coupon for something else free near Arby's so we thought we'd go there too. (And yes, we are all still in our pajamas.) 2 free burgers at Arby's, along with 2 drinks, 2 potato wedge things, and a kid's meal, later, $14.00 saved! $15.00 spent.

Off to a local computer store where I had a coupon for a free SD memory card. I needed another one for my camera because I often run out of space. Juice decided to use my "give to a friend" half of the coupon and get one for the Wii. Each one cost $7.00. So $14.00 saved!

So let's sum up:
Total merchandise: $53 or so
Total spent: $15
Total saved: $38 dollars!

It was a good shopping day.



  1. Ooooooooh I LOVE free stuff. Speaking of, I have your blog giveaway and I meant to bring it to you today, but with my hubby being sick and trying to load everything for church and sharing time into my car by myself, I totally forgot. Maybe next week. BTW those twins of yours are SO cute and I am so glad the cast is off and the exploring is underway!

    I love freebies too--my favorites are free cardstock at Archivers each month and free underwear at Victoria's Secret a few times each year, oh and free samples at Aveda :)

  3. Oooh, you are good!

  4. Nice! We went for the free ice cream, too. Yum!

  5. That is very much my kind of shopping! You can put SD cards in the Wii?
