Okay, since pictures are SO fun, here's my haul today. (Since we are leaving town I really want to use up my GOOD coupons before they expire the end of January, thus another Fred's trip!)
Writing to companies has been one of the biggest ways I've found to get coupons for free products. Whether it is complimenting or complaining, they usually send you a coupon to try their products. With the new year, I'll start following Couponing to Disney's plan and attempt to write to a few different ones each day. This is how I received the Kashi free frozen item that is pictured. Paired with my 2.00 frozen food Fred's reward coupon, I ended up with 2.00 in overage to help pay for other items.
Total spent: $2.89. Crazy, eh?!
