So Hubby and I went to a Cancer Fundraiser last Saturday and won some prizes. Does it count as free if I entered to win them? I'm counting them. I could have won nothing. The whole story is here. We ended up with a $50 gift card to Home Depot. I see free garden stuff in my future.
A Nespresso machine that had 12 pods in the box and 50 pods for the wrong machine outside of the box. We also won 4 concert tickets for the summer.
My son closed at his job. All of this would have been thrown away if he didn't take it. We shared with friends.
He also was given these 2 salads. Someone ordered them online and never picked them up. My son says this happens everyday. Who pays for food and then doesn't go and get it? They let employees have it instead of throwing them away. I had one for lunch the next day and so did my son.
I picked up my freebie from Stop & Shop.
I grabbed 7 rolls of wrapping paper and 3/4 bag of charcoal from a free pile in front of someone's house that is moving.
My son worked a morning shift and saved these from the garbage. I gave 2 to a friend who loves them. We ate the rest.
My sister is cleaning out her house so I received a new towel set,
a metal basket, an alarm clock, a fan, a costume for YD, a pocketbook for YD, and some bathroom accessories.
She also sent home some food.
We were cat and house sitting for our friends. They got us a Thank You gift.
Then there was the 150 free donuts I got.
Hubby also did a trade with his brother. He got a free truck bed cover for our new to us truck. Hubby needed a wire and our neighbor had what he needed so he didn't have to go buy one.
YD got free lunch at a robotics competition that she participated in. The whole trip was covered by the team. YD and I went to a college festival. She received multiple free pens and a reusable bag.
Lots of free food this week. I knew that we couldn't eat it all so I shared with others. No point in wasting perfectly good food.
Did you get any freebies this week? Do you take free stuff when offered if it's used? Have you ever taken things from stranger's garbage? What did you get?
