It's all about the "free"

In addition to all the free food I've been scarfing, I've managed to get some other great bargains today.

If you're trying to save money, follow the Frugal Girls. I get their e-mails daily and sometimes they have some pretty great coupons, like today. I saw a post for free Bath and Body Works lotion, who doesn't want that? And fortunately there was a location on my walk to the train station so I stopped by and got a small bottle of their new "Country Chic" lotion for FREE! That curbed my shopping craving a little bit at least! And it's the perfect size to throw in your purse for a commute/summer time.

I also joined a blogger book club  that starts next week. Our first book is The Last Lecture and although I've read it, it's such a great book worthy of a re-read. So worthy that I even considered buying it but I won't be purchasing a book for approximately 2.5 years with this budget I'm on. However, it pays to have friends who work in the book world because they can help you out and support your book club experience. My copy should arrive Monday!

In additional awesome news, I found my train pass! Sure enough, I had thrown it away. However my laziness worked to my benefit because I hadn't taken the trash out yet and fortunately it wasn't too messy to dig through. Saved me $85 plus a week's worth of paying full price each day! WHEW!

My bank accounts and myself are pretty pleased with me today. Time to put this sleepy body to bed!


  1. Hi :) Love your blog. I stalked mmmm followed you here from Kristen's (While We're Waiting) blog. Have a little catching up to do but I love what I read so far.
    I go to school and work in Boston. Having to do a little train commuting myself I know what you're going through. They're talking about raising the monthly pass prices again due to the gas issue. Not looking forward to it.
    Anyway great blog and looking forward to reading more. Kara :)

    PS. Thanks for the deals link. I'm always on the look out for great deals!!!

  2. Hey Kara! Glad you like it! I sure hope they dont raise either of our train pass prices because it's already a decent chunk of money! It's always something though.

    I'm excited to check out your blog too :)

  3. If it's free it's for me!! :)
