This part of our trip wasn't free, but I'm always happy to get inexpensive dish detergent for our apartment. Palmolive is on sale this week for $0.88, and I had mentioned to my mom that people were stocking up with coupons. She told me that she had 2 of the $0.50 that she wasn't going to use as she's not that big of a fan of Palmolive, so I was able to use them! Yay for $0.38 dish detergent! For big messed, I do very much prefer Dawn as it really does cut through the grease, but since we wash all of our dishes by hand, Palmolive is usually less expensive and does a good job for what we need. I haven't tried this particular kind with Oxy in it though, so we'll see how that compares to Dawn (we keep both Palmolive and Dawn on our sink counter depending on what we're washing).
With the money that they sent us, we were able to get free things! I went through the circular and discovered that Honey Bunches of Oats was $2.99 with a $1 ECB offer. We don't ever buy cereal for that much, but it was free! I initially picked up the almond one, which is our normal choice, but Howard saw that the Greek yogurt one was also included in the offer. I was excited to try a new one especially considering I'm kind of not as big of a fan of Honey Bunches of Oats at this moment. Right now I'm going through a Cheerios and Life phase. When I scanned it at the self-checkout, it kept saying I couldn't use the coupon because it exceeded the purchase amount. The employee tried it too and said that it couldn't be used, but I politely asked if he could just manually input $2.99 into the machine. He did, and so there was absolutely nothing coming out of my pocket for this cereal! And I still got the $1 for next time! Yay!
