I Heart Freebies


I've been trying really hard to be frugal lately. It's really hard because I LOVE buying stuff, but since I don't work and my hubby is still failry new to the military or income is pretty low. I recently found out that there is an organization that gives out free produce each month. It's so easy too...I simply printed my name and phone number and then took what I want. Today there was only banana's and salad greens, but I am very thankful. If you're in the Central Vally California Area you definitely want to check out FoodLink.

WOW, that sounds amazing. First welcome to the military. What a wonderful life. I do remember those first years and counting pennies.
Have you heard of angel food ministries. It is not income based and is great food. go to angelfoodministries.com
We used them for a long time and would now if DH was home

Another award?!?! Thanks Tinuke!

Trooppetrie - Thanks! I have heard of Angel Food Ministries, but haven't tried them out. There are two downsides for me. One is the paying for the food way before I can pick it up and the second is the fact that I have to drive to Visalia (about 30 minutes away) to pick it up. I may try it out though...they have some new kids snack packs I'm eyeballing.

Rmcandelight - Thanks
