This is what I ran out and picked up at Target and CVS and the dollar store yesterday in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy.
Half and half for my coffee.
Diet Coke. (2L on sale for $0.88 this week)
Candles. ($1 from Dollar General)
Applesauce squeezy thingies. Just in case. Plus, I love them. Great to toss in a bag for a snack on the go.
Notice that my haul does not include batteries. I searched high and low for D batteries to use in an old boom box in case of power outage. But it seems that everyone else beat me to the punch. Which makes sense as I went on this big search around 2 in the afternoon.
Bottom line. I was happy as a clam. I had a chicken in the crockpot and a big glass of wine and all my necessities at the ready. Just in case.
How did you prepare for Hurricane Sandy? And did your area have much damage? I hope not!

Did you sign up for the free Finish dishwasher tabs that I posted about yesterday? This is what came the last time I requested one.
Is it me or does the packaging that surrounds freebies amaze you too? Sometimes they spend three times as much on the packaging than the free product inside.

This photo was taken about a month or more ago but I was a blog slacker for a spell and I never got around to posting it. But all of those freebies really add up. I keep freebies I know I will use and add the rest to my to-donate box. So nothing goes to waste!

Do you can? I do. Not much. A few preserves. To use mostly as gifts. Salsa. Which I give sparingly as gifts because I hoard it for myself. And sometimes something quirky like pickled watermelon rind or banana pineapple jam.
But jars are awesome for a million other uses. Like vases or storage or casual water glasses and the list goes on. Check out Pinterest for awesome ideas.
Plus, jars last forever. Seriously, they are a lifetime purchase. You just need to buy new tops if you plan to can with them.
Right now, Lowes has them on a crazy, super awesome sale. Prices and availability vary by region. Because the best deal is to ship them for free to the store. So you are limited to what your store has available.
But at these prices, I am absolutely stocking up for next summer's canning.
Crazy fact about me: I don't really love chocolate. But I once in a blue moon I do actually like Lindt chocolate balls. They are just special.
If you act fast, you can snag yourself Lindt chocolates for FREE. Hurry though, I know this offer will go very quickly.

Buy (2) Enfagrow 4-pack $6.47/each
- (1) $10/2 Enfagrow coupon
= Out Of Pocket $1.47/each
** This is an awesome donation item if you don't need it yourself! I know it's not free but it's a HUGE savings on what I think seems like a wildly expensive item. Think of how grateful a momma and baby will be to receive such a healthy donation item!

I keep collecting these samples because I swear that one day I will break down and buy a K-cup machine thingy. And possibly use technical terms. But you can grab a free sample of Green Mountain coffee via Facebook today. So far it's a really fun freebie day!

So hurry to snag yours today! These go fast!!
