Freebee golf

October 29th, 2013 at 07:02 am

Ok, freebees, but no golf (unless we do frisbee or minature golf!). In the week before heading off to golf courses and amusement parks (no, not California, but Florida) for a week of relaxation, I was able to get some more freebees at CVS.

This week I got in a single purchase the following: bottle of laundry detergent, 1 liter mouthwash, bottle dish detergent, and a "Pro-Health" toothpaste - all for $1.39. I needed to use some coupons before they expired, and ended up with as many "extra bucks" as when I started. Free cleaning materials => always good. By now I am stocked for more than a year on all these items, maybe many more years!

Yesterday I got my first check for mystery shopper work in many years. In September I did one for Salvation Army Thrift stores, and for an hour or two of work I got $15 + reimbursement for items I bought and got to keep (some nice dishes and glasses).

Finally, my retirement 457 plan went over $300k this month. Geeze, it seems like not that long ago I was thrilled it went over $100k, while owing only $50k on my mortgage (it was probably 2008). Now I have triple that and a paid off house - I luv it.

    I don't understand the post title. What has this to do with golf? I'm sorry I'm so prosaic and unimaginative, but I cannot even fathom a connection. Is it that golf is a game, and your coupon redemptions are also a game to you? Sorry to be so dense.

    Maybe a play of words on "Frisbee Golf?"

    Yeah, it was a try at a play on words - not my best effort, but the best I could do today.

    Got to love a guy that plays the drugstore game and uses coupons!
