Yet Another Grandma J Tutorial

While most of the free world spends their Saturday afternoons playing golf, lollygagging in the malls, or downing a few brewski's while watching March Madness in May, Grandma J is busy saving every nickel and dime she can.




Here's how Grandma J wastes spends her Saturday afternoons. She wanders around in cyberspace looking for freebies. By wanders she means she checks out the freebie page on the Walmart website freebie page.


These are the free items she ordered this week. Just be forewarned that none of the "click here" notations will bring you to a website....it's just a visual to show you that there is a "Get Free Sample Link"



Here's some free NicoDerm gum to help the addicted smoker sitting next to you at bingo friend or relative in your life.




If you need these, you already know it! And no...I didn't watch the video.





One sure fire way to know you are on the road to baldness, is to try every free sample you can get your hands on for your hair.





Yeah, I bet no one's surprised that Grandma J chose "Sample Both".





Only a Zyrtec user knows how expensive this stuff is.....I hope they send me two sample packs.....AHHHHH CHHOOOOO!



Shudddup.....a free sample is a free sample. Besides, if these are really as absorbent as they claim to be, I can use them to dry my car. You know, like a ShamWow substitute.

* Now, I think I've made a pretty good dent in my Christmas shopping,with free shipping....how about you?

You are one thrifty lady. Thanks so much for sharing all your sites and freebies with us. If it's free, it's for me.

Linda said...

I've never heard of that site. Guess I'll have to check it out. I love it that you can make me laugh, or at least smile, in the morning.

Jen said...

I love shopping in the comfort of my own home.
yes, these would make great stocking stuffers!

I love freebies! The Walmart ones are great but they use SO much packaging that I feel like I'm killing the environment when I get a huge box with one bite of oatmeal in it.

You should check out this blog:

I had no idea. Thanks, Grandma J.

If you take too many of the zyrtec, they can put you out like a light. Then, in your dead sleep you will need the pull ups...if you drank too much tea (beer) then you had better add the always pad too, better absorbing.
Too funny!!!

My! Look how svelte Grandma J. is! Such a tiny waist.

My mother travels that same road to baldness, at least she thinks she does.

Thanks for all these tips. I had no idea they existed. Thanks for making me laugh, too.

G.J., Thanks for the freebie tips. I'm also into coupons, etc. since I early retired. I try to save and contribute a little. I will go to this site, now. And how do you come up with your pictures? You're so talented with the computer, besides being a good writer and funny! I enjoy you very much. And no, I decided not to slide down the pole!

Thanks for the tip! I was traumatized by my grandmothers who had see-thru hair. I'm convinced I will be bald by the age of 60.

Chris said...

I did not know about the Freebies. ShamWow rocks!
