Earth Day 2011 Freebies

April 18, 2011
By

It’s no surprise that with our current economy, people want something for nothing. And it’s no different when it comes to Earth Day. Perhaps that’s because a few years ago companies started the tradition of giving away Earth Day freebies, such as reusable shopping bags, and now everyone expects those freebies every time Earth Day comes around. (Earth Day this year, by the way, is April 22, 2011.) Happily, companies, retailers, and organizations have gotten the memo, and are offering up plenty of Earth Day freebies in 2011. Here are those worth noting: Free Food Bring a reusable coffee...

How I Saved $19 At the Supermarket

April 7, 2010

I introduced the concept of coupon stacking in a blog posting last month. I’ll admit that I’ve done my fair share of coupon stacking but not to the extent of this extreme couponer that I read about in the Kansas City Star earlier this week. This woman is so adept at using coupons that sometimes the stores end up paying her money back on her purchases. This story inspired me so much so that when I needed to shop a few days ago for, um, certain, well, feminine products (we are a household of three females, after all), I...

Going Green for Some Blue to Save Some Green

March 8, 2010

I’m a huge fan of going green when it can save you some green, such as when supermarkets reward you (financially) for bringing your own shopping bags. That’s why this new promotion COTTON. FROM BLUE TO GREEN, with Cotton Inc. and The Gap caught my eye: between now and March 14th, you can bring in your old blue jeans to Gap stores for free recycling, and in return you’ll get a 30% off coupon for a new pair of jeans at The Gap. What does Gap do with those jeans? Turn them over to Cotton Inc. to turn those...

Countdown to a Frugal Holiday: Bag Credits

I did some pre-Black Friday shopping last week at Target and was surprised to read this on this bottom of my receipt: Get 5 cents off every time you use a reusable bag. Since when did Target start offering a bag credit? Mind you, I’m not complaining, but it’s an excellent incentive for you to bring your own bag to save the plastic, plus Target gives you this five-cent credit for each bag you bring. And if you were one of the lucky ones on Black Friday, you may have received a free Target reusable bag that you can,...

Freebie Thanksgiving Friday (November 20-26, 2009)

November 20, 2009

I’ve tried to find as many Thanksgiving freebies as possible this week. Gobble, gobble! City-Specific Freebies Starting January 1, 2010 Washington, DC will charge residents 5 cents per plastic bag they take when shopping. (IKEA already does this.) To help Washingtonians stock up on reusable bags, the city will be giving away more than 120,000 free market bags in the next few months. Enjoy free ice skating at New York City’s Bryant Park! Detroit-area families that need coats for their kids, take note: Happy’s Pizza and Greater Grace Temple have joined forces in “Happy’s Coats For Kids” Winter Coat...
