Last night I went through my coupon box and pulled out everything that expires on December 31, 2008. I was gripped by a moment of panic, OH MY GOSH, I can't let ALL these coupons go to waste! Then I calmed down and picked out the ones for stuff I could get for cheap/free or that I needed the product.
Today I went to Wal-Mart to pick up some of those items. I had 4 $1 off coupons and 1 buy one get one free coupon for Starkist Tuna Packets. They were $1.08 each, so for $1.40, I got 6 packets of Starkist Tuna! They also had South Beach Granola Bars with Protien on roll back for $2, perfect since I had a $2 coupon! I also snagged 3 free packs of Kotex by using 3 $1 off coupons.
I also stopped at McDonald's to redeem my coupon for a free mocha, no purchase necessary. I ordered at the drive through and said I had a coupon for a free one. There was a pause then the employee said the machine was broken, so I couldn't have my free mocha. Hmmm, is this suspecious to anyone or am I just paranoid??
My last stop was Walgreens where I got a Santa hat for $0.79 and the FAR Orajel Cold Sore medicine.
