Mini trip plus way too many freebies (no, that’s not possible)

My sister-in-law was married this weekend! Now I have a brother-in-law-in-law. This is the third day I have been back from the wedding “week”end and I am just mustering the will the blog again. I’ll be honest – I was really enjoying not having responsibilities. I also did not exercise (except for one day) during my six day trip.

Back to real life.

While in Oklahoma, I got to shop at my favorite OK grocery store, Homeland. I grabbed only a few items because the prices are a bit higher than down here. On Tuesday I went to CVS and Walmart to get just a few deals.

Here’s what I picked up.

Homeland, Walamart and CVS


Deals worth mentioning:
Tresseme products $4.89, marked down to $3.29, used $1 off coupon that was doubled = $1.29

When I got home I got all of these freebies in my mailbox!

Mailbox freebies!

Second, I received a free coupon for any Aussie hair product up to $3.99 by liking their Facebook page.

And finally, a full size pair of Dr. Scholl’s for Her High Heel inserts to try and review from BzzAgent along with FIFTEEN $4 off coupons! Wow! The booklet says the retail price is $12.99, so yikes. I suppose $4 off would help if you were planning to get them anyway.

None of the above products have any catches. All completely free. You need to get in on this “free” business!
