FOF for July 4th

I was out running errands so figured I'd stop in at my favourite store and pick up a few things and see what I could get for free.

Anyhow below is what I got, that little lot would have cost me $39.97 if I had bought it. Notice the Lindt chocolate!!!! Two flavours had expired, so was able to get two bars for free. Not that I would normally buy chocolate from there as we have a Lindt chocolate factory outlet pretty close by. Also A & P is overpriced with that sort of thing, those bars would normally cost $5.49 each??? I needed milk and eggs, so that was good. The turkey kielbasa sausage, I have popped that in the freezer, and you can't go wrong with juice and cookies.



So now I am stocked up on a few things I needed. I spent $$51.93, used $8.00 in coupons and had $47.97 in FOF.

Good job! I totally do not have the patience for FOFing lately. Especially not when I have to drag both kids with me.

I have to say I was in the store for close to an hour, so I can understand why you don't want to take the kids with you.

Wow Gill..you certainly get alot of items for free. Can I ask what may be a silly question...what does FOF stand for? And how do you get all the items for free?

I am so jealous of FOF! I guess I'll have to make due with Stacking at London Drugs though... great shopping!

You get such great deals though with stacking coupons, I wish we had that in our province.......
