Free Fresco Taco (Healthy Choice) from Taco Bell

You can get a FREE Fresco Taco (chicken or beef) from Taco Bell. These are the healthy alternatives to their regular tacos (fresco has fresh tomatoes, cilantro, onions and no fatty sour cream or cheese).

There are only (only ha!) 1 million coupons and they expire 7 days after you print it. You can only print one per computer.

A Great Week for CVS Deals (but not so much for Walgreens)

This week was a great week for the CVS shoppers!
First, there were numerous products that were "free" after ECB (Extra Care Bucks) and coupons. Most were high quality items as well, including ThermaCare heat wraps (and you could get up to 5 with money back), Nivea Body Wash, Revlon Lipstick, Oral B floss, crest toothpaste, and Listerine mouthwash. On top of that, when I scanned my card at the little coupon machine I received a $5 off any purchase of $15 or more.
Yesterday, I went and was able to get 2 lipsticks, floss, and Contact Lens Solution (a monthly ECB I hadn't done yet). I spent less than a 1.00 out of pocket and $14 in previous ECBs and got 22.00 in ECB! I walked out with the products and more money than when I walked in. I also got rainchecks on the ThermaCare, Nivea, and Listerine (I will go back today to see if they came in).
With the Thermacare - I will get 5 Neck to Arm wraps FREE.
Nivea - I will MAKE 2.00!!!
Listerine - I will get them free (or make .01).
I am hoping that another coupon prints out soon too! That would make this deal even sweeter.

At Walgreens, I had Rapid Rewards (RRs) that expired today, so I picked up some Pert Plus (.99 after coupon) 3 in 1 for Men, Gilette Deodorant for Men, Consumer Reports Magazine and spent my 10.00 RR's. I didn't see ANYTHING good this week at Walgreens for the Rapid Rewards, not even for the mid-week special sale (starting today). Oh well - it has been good there lately, so they are bound to have an "off week".

I would head over to CVS pronto to take advantage of these great deals.

Do you want to be promoted to Soft Scrub Captain?

I was on Facebook earlier when I noticed Brandi from had posted link to become a Soft Scrub Captain. This was quite a coincidence, since I had just spent part of my morning giving both the bathrooms a good cleaning with Soft Scrub. It works great around my sink, including the faucets. I also like the lemony smell.

So, of course, I signed up at
There are only 200 spots - but I hope to be one of those 200. If not me, then I hope that one of my friends and readers can be a Soft Scrub Captain.
Happy Scrubbing (Softly!)

Today was a GREAT DAY

I was pleasantly surprised with today's mail! I received a coupon for Famous Footwear, $10 off a purchase of $10 or more, a coupon for a free bag of cat food from Royal Canin, and a coupon for $5 off my next purchase of $20 or more from Dominos pizza.

I was also pleased with my communication skills. I had to call PayPal due to a charge dispute. I was glad to speak to a man who corrected the problem immediately. I also called AT&T and canceled our home phone (we use cell phones only and that's an uneccesary expense). The woman on the phone was so polite.

Another great thing about today is that I went to YouData and made $1.85 cents today just looking at a few ads (it took about 30 seconds). I figure even at $2.00 a week - that's an extra $100 a year I have!

It was a good day all around!

Shop Text Codes for FREE items and Coupons

Recently I convinced my husband I NEEDED unlimited texting. Do you know how many deals I have had to pass up, how many votes I have not cast, and how many sweepstakes I have not entered because I didn't have text messaging????? Too many.

Now that I do, I found Shoptext!
You can text many different words to Shoptext at 467467.

For example - I texted Nestle to 467467 and am now getting a FREE full size bag of Nestle Morsels. I texted TIDE to 467467 and they are sending me free Tide coupons!. There are several "codes" that are working right now.

Unilever, General Mills, Proctor and Gamble all participate. Even some grocery stores, like Food Lion will send you stuff. I am getting 3 free samples from Food Lion, even though there isn't one near our house. I can send the coupons for the free full size samples to my family that lives in South Carolina.

If you find any Shoptext codes - please share them!

Feeding the Dogs for Free

Today my goal is to find FREE dog food and dog treat offers. Of course, I am also searching for FREE cat food offers (can't forget Sarah, our Russian Blue). There are a LOT of great free dog food sample offers. Coupons are great too - especially when you have a dog with a sensitive stomach and need to stay with one brand.

Free dog and cat food samples are great for EVERYONE - even if you don't own a dog or cat. Why? Because they can be given to the local animal shelter or rescue society. During this tough economic time, many animals are being given up because they are a financial burden. Our shelters are being pushed to the limits.

So, go out and get some FREE dog and cat food or dog treats. Use them or give them away - but get them! is offering a free sample of their food. I requested mine for our 7 year old Catahoula Leopard, Sydney. is offering a free sample of dog AND/OR cat food. I requested one of both. This is from the Flint River Ranch Company. will get you a free sample of Doggy Delightz. You have to fill in ALL sections, even comments to submit the request. will give you a coupon to print out for a free can of cesar dog food. has a free sample of catnip, but you have to send the SASE to get it.
To get a free sample* of our Purr-furred by The Boss catnip and a coupon good for 10% off your first purchase, please send a Stamped (.42 stamp), Self-Addressed Envelope to:
Shirley's Cat NipP. O. Box 131958 The Woodlands, TX 77393-1958

First Post of Freedom

This is my first blog post ever!
I am always searching for free things. There are many great sites out there, so I hope to be able to add to wealth of information out there.
My goal today was to find FREE USB/FLASH drives. I plan to use these with the kids during school so they can save their projects on them. I was pleasantly surprised to find several sites that are offering FREE flash drives. Hopefully in a 2 - 6 weeks I can put up some pictures of the flash drives as they arrive. Most are small (1gb), but perfect for small projects and the price (FREE!) is also great. :)
Here are the sites I went to: - for this site you do need a business name. Luckily, my husband does remodeling, so I used theirs. It is a good idea, to use flash drives instead of business cards to spread the word about your business! - this one is for ANYONE. They will send you flash drive that has an advertisement on it (hopefully nothing bad) based on your gender, age, location, etc. I ordered one for home and work and this is the one I am most excited about. - this is a great one I found on the site You can get a holiday flash drive free!
If you don't want these, order them anyway (at least the last 2) and give them to a teacher! I know they will love them.
