    I never buy dish soap. I have a nice stockpile that I got free or nearly free by using sales and coupons at Walgreens. :) I passed on some yesterday because they were 50 cents! Too much for me to pay!!

    Just be careful about reusing return envelopes – if there is a barcode type thing on the bottom make sure to cover it completely. My husband reused a return envelope one time, and the note he wrote to his mom ended up going to our insurance company instead! The post office went by the barcode instead of the address he had written on it.

    I just had to get toothpaste after not buying any for like a year and a half! I didn’t know we were on the last tube, and almost didn’t know what to do with myself when I had to buy some!

    Gotta love those drugstore freebies!

      @Qpon: I’ve had those weird times when I have to buy something again that’s been stockpiled for a long time. It is a STRANGE feeling! lol

    Really great article. Lots of good ideas. My favorite: getting free condiments from extras during take out meals. Mainly, because the meals I have to eat while accumulating those free condiments are not part of my diet.

    Oh well, we can’t have everything and I DO need some extra soy sauce, guess I better order a couple pounds of kung pao chicken
