Theresa's Mixed Nuts: I Love A Good Freebie or Deal!

I Love A Good Freebie or Deal!

We had a great weekend. We were blessed with not 1, but 3 really awesome freebies!

Jason's mom had an extra set of knives she didn't need, so she passed them on to us. I was badly in need of new knives, so this couldn't have come at a better time!

Jason's boss had 2 tickets to Tap Dogs that he was not going to be able to use, so he generously passed them on to us. Great seats too! If you have not seen Tap Dogs, I would recommend you checking it out if it comes to your town. I have never been a huge fan of tap dance, but the show was amazing!



Our neighbors just opened up a Golden Corral and invited us as guests for the team training dinner run through on Sunday. I have never eaten at Golden Corral, but thought the food was delicious! Those big tufts of cotton candy they have made Allison's day!



My daughter has been wanting a wool coat like mine for some time. I spent over $100 on my Banana Republic coat a few years ago, but could not stomach the thought of spending that much on a coat for her, knowing that she would grow bored with it in a year or two. Last week I went to the thrift store. As I was getting ready to leave, my eye caught a wool coat. Low and behold, it was a Banana Republic coat that was just like mine, but a bit shorter. Brand Spankin' New! It was marked $15, minus my $5 coupon had me snagging that coat for $10! A-mazing deal!



What a fabulous weekend for deals and freebies! Definitely makes up for the Black Friday deals I missed out on by staying home!

What kind of freebies and deals have you scored lately?

  6. Theresa! whoohoo! I saw STOMP once, so lucky for you to see TAP DOGS. and ...I feel privileged to know about the coat for your daughter ahead via a 'comment to moi'. hahahaha.

    Yes little camera is nearly dead. it still shows my pics on the card but it won't down load them. pretty sure I had them all out. and i did try to take pics with it after I unjammed the zoomed out lens, but it takes pics that look like they are looking thru a mini-blind. very awful pics. sad. thanks for the condoling words. :(

    don't worry - as soon as i get my daughters camera, i will get the pics on a post of my outfit. it was so cool and then all for naught. poop. hahahaha

  7. I'm speechless Theresa!! That coat was an amazing find! Whenever I go into a thrift store I never see anything to buy :( Maybe I should go more often.

    You should share your Elf antics here! I love seeing what everyone's elves have been up to :)) I'm brainstorming right now for tonight's mischief!

  10. OMG that food looks so delicious!

    I love the knife set. You can never have too many knives in my opinion. I use knives every day so it is a must that I have plenty. I have my specialty knives and also the knives I use for dinner.

    You really scored with these awesome freebies and deals.
