Freebie, Salvage sale, Thrift Find & A Win!

Freebie this week - it came unrequested just for being on the P&G mailing list! Hubby loves these razors.

I currently work for an insurance company. A few times a year they hold an employee only salvage sale. Usually they have things like written off vehicles and leather jackets but this time they had a few household items. As I was trying not to buy anything as we are moving I did not go to the first round but was enticed to go when they dropped the prices as everything had to be sold. I got the men's hair paste for $1 each and the watches for $2 each. They need batteries but look to be unused. I don't wear watches myself so bought one for thrifty hubby and one for my Mom.

I picked up this cute little guy for .99 last week when I went thrifting with a friend. Originally I was going to put fudge in him but am holding him out for caramel popcorn twists (from the recipe off the back of the package of popcorn twists) as tried some at work and LOVED it! I plan on making some this week for the kids and my nephew.

In addition to getting a raise (4%) this week at work I got some more good news - I won another contest! Very surprising as I have not entered very many at all this year. It just shows even if you have little time for contests if you stick to one entrant per person contests you still have great odds of winning. What did I win? A three night summer package at Fairmont Whistler, tram passes, and some meals. Estimated retail value $1800 Yippee! This is a couple of hour drive from our new home in British Columbia so am hoping to book in August for my 43rd Birthday. Very welcome news!
