Our older son earned a coupon for a free personal pan pizza from the Pizza Hut Book-It Program.
A dentist visited our younger son's class and he was given a goody bag with a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss.
I saved the stickers from the Highlights offer we received in the mail to put in an Operation Christmas Child shoe box.
I was very excited to find canned pumpkin for $.99 each! I also bought molasses for $1.99 (usually over $3) and apples and onions for $.33/lb.
I bought our younger son a shirt and shorts that he will (hopefully) be able to wear next summer for $3.50.
I bought apples on sale last week that we had never tried before and it turned out we didn't really care for them. I discovered though that they make the best applesauce I have ever had! Next time I see a sale, I will definitely buy more for applesauce.
