Stopped by Walmart for a couple of things I haven’t been able to find recently with coupons or cheaper else where – grabbed my Airwick $6.00 off coupons that I clipped and kept even though I never use those things, but I thought “who knows”…

Walmart had the items on sale for $6.00 and I had (4) $6.00 coupons.  Guess what I got?  Freebies!  No, I won’t use them personally, but I will be putting these $14.00 retail priced items into baskets as housewarming gifts for friends.

I love free!

So sorry! Comments are enabled now…

I had something set that required people to already be logged in to post a comment, which effectively turned commenting off for most people.  I apologize for that!  Comments are now open, enjoy!
