Earth Day Freebies and Sales!

I copied this from www.southernsavers.com .

I’ts Earth Day, which I guess is a special thing, but for us it means a lot of great deals!  This is going to take a plan, excuted perfectly you should have a blast and rack up.

First gather what you need before leaving:

  1. Empty Color or Black ink cartridge
  2. Clean & Empty Travel Coffee Mug
  3. (6) Empty Soda Bottles or Cans
  4. Empty or mostly used bottle of face wash

Since I don’t know the layout of your town this is my plan:

  • Drop ink cartridges by Walgreens for $1 color and black refills!
  • Head to Books A Million, fill my new Babies R Us Bag will books and get 20% off everything
    • Drink my free coffee
    • Contemplate where to plant my free seeds

If you have extra energy you can also:



My 1st Local Harvest delivery

One word to sum it up…disappointed. My box costed $19.50 and inside it was: 1 cucumber, 2 bananas, half romaine head, 2 pears, about 1/2 lb green beans, 7-8 small potatoes, pint of strawberries, and a pint of cherry tomatoes. Granted, it is all organic…but, I still don’t think it was a bang for my buck. I guess I had to give it a try but I don’t think I’ll be doing it again. I do better shopping at Publix with my coupons…speaking of…

I was happy to save $23.34 with my coupons! Only spent $60…and had a $5 off Rite Aid coupon and a $5 off CVS coupon. I really love it when I have a $5 off Kroger coupon and a $5 Walgreens coupon. That happened to me once and it’s an immediate $20 worth off my total! Love Publix!
