Food storage, freebie received today, and more freebies:)

This is how my food storage journey is going. I decided to first start stocking my pantry in the kitchen and then lead on to the shelves I have in the laundry room. I figured this would be a great way to rotate the old out and new in...while still using them every day. I know it's hard to tell how many I have stacked. But, Winn Dixie is having a sell on their can goods. Cream corn, whole corn, regular cut green beans, and french cut green beans are 20 for 10.00! That is pretty cheap in our area. So I stocked up with 40 cans and plan to buy another 20 tomorrow. They are also having a wonderful BOGO sale on pork and beef. We had the best tenderized steak tonight. Also, I picked up a can of Lowery's seasoning...I think that is the best seasoning blend I have ever used!!!!! I highly recommend it.
I got this freebie(a cookbook) through mail today. Since I will be getting up my year to date freebies(the ones I have not used or put into gift baskets yet)..I have decided to post when I get a freebie so I do not forget in the future. I will do a post next week on all the things I have gotten so far.
  • FREE Yogi tea sample http://www.yogiproducts.com/sample/. Remember coffee, teas, ciders, and even hot chocolate samples make really frugal gifts. I usually save mine and then buy a .25 mug from the thrift store that suites that person's personality. I tuck a few tea samples in with maybe some hard candy....even a few homemade cookies. This is while supplies last and takes eight weeks.
  • FREE 3 diabetic cookbooks http://www.mybettercare.com/. They do have to verify insurance and so your phone number needs to be correct.
