You know how people always say, “You can’t get anything for free these days?” Well, I am here to prove they are wrong. You can get lots of things for free, and I am here to show you how.
I will be doing this once a month starting with this month, August 2017. I will post what I got for free, and how I did it so hopefully, you can get the same or similar things for free as well. I would love for all of my readers to join the, “If it’s Free, it’s for Me Club.” Of course, that’s not really the name of a club, but being a frugal person, it’s a lot of fun to get things for free.
If you aren’t subscribed to my blog yet, feel free to add your email in the space in the top right area of this blog so you won’t miss my monthly update of what I got for free every month.
Unfortunately, I just thought of this idea for a blog post half way through August. So I am sure there are more things that I got for free in this month, but these are the ones I documented.
A Free Dress from Kohl’s
I will start with the one thing I forgot to put in the main picture. I love shopping at Kohl’s because there are sales all the time. And I’m not talking about a 20% off sale. While there are those types of sales at Kohl’s, there are also frequent huge markdown sales where shoppers can get items for such a great price, it almost feels like stealing! But it’s perfectly fine.
The dress above had an original tag of $59.00 on it. It’s a Sonoma brand and when I found it on a clearance rack it had been marked down to $7.14 at the end of the summer season. I had a $10.00 Kohl’s cash certificate from a previous shopping trip the week before, so the dress ended up being free.
Free Products from Kroger
It definitely pays to sign up for a shopping card at every store you go to. Most people know to do that, but some are resistant to it or feel it’s fine to use the store’s card at the cash register. But if you do sign up for those store cards, some of those stores will send you coupons throughout the year. And also, some stores offer you gas points, like Kroger, so it really makes sense to sign up for a store card. My husband and I have a Kroger store card, and Kroger sends us an envelope full of coupons. This past month they send us an envelope full of coupons which included a free coupon for a 58 oz.
My husband and I have a Kroger store card, and Kroger sends us an envelope full of coupons periodically. This past month they send us coupons which included a free coupon for a 58 oz. container of Tropicana orange juice and a free jar of Ragu spaghetti sauce. Both are products we enjoy and use.
A Free Sample of Gliss Shampoo and Conditioner
This nice sample of Gliss shampoo and conditioner came from my searching the web for free products. Just so easy to go to the website and sign up, and within one week, it was in my mailbox. Free samples and coupons are a much better surprise to find in the mailbox than bills. Sorry, it’s a small sample so no picture but you can see it in the top picture.
Free Bic Razors
Every time I see high-value coupons for razors in the newspaper, I always save them. Last year the coupons matched various razors. This year a coupon recently came out for $3.00 off Bic razors. The particular packages in the picture are priced at $2.87 at Walmart. Combined with the coupon for $3.00 off, the razors are free. I had three coupons, which meant three packs of razors for free.
Free Ralph Lauren Men’s Night-Shirt
This is a used men’s night shirt by Ralph Lauren. I actually have the same night shirt in a different size and I love it. It’s a men’s night shirt but it’s a soft flannel and I just love the feel of it on those cold winter nights. I got it for free at a second-hand store that I visited for the first time in July, and then they sent me a coupon for $5.00 off anything during my next visit. Of course, I went back the next time I was in the area. I was pleased to find this great night-shirt that I got for free because it was marked down to $4.99 and the $5.00 coupon covered the total price. I will sell it on eBay and can definitely vouch for how comfortable and cozy it is.
Great Free Samples from Pinch Me
These samples were all from the website Pinchme dot com. They included:
- 1 packet of Slimfast Creamy Chocolate Advanced Nutrition Smoothie
- 1 sample packet of ZzzQuil Nighttime Sleep-Aid
- 1 Gillette Endurance deodorant with a $1.00 off 1 coupon
