I just scored a....... (a thread about finding great deals!!!)

I  love to brag about how little I paid for something. Like my $2.00 boots, or $14 Tofurkey dinners. This thread is dedicated to all the good deals we find!  8-)

I just scored (2) three pound tubs of Earth Balance for $2.99!

At this gross discount grocery store which hardly has anything vegan, they had these HUGE ASS tubs of EB (commercial size?) for $2.99 each. I did not realize until I got home that she only charged me for one, and NO I did not go back to correct her error! It is sort of far away (now I'm sure karma will bite me in the ass at some point). But jeez.....6 pounds for 3 bucks! I need to take a picture so you can appreciate how large these are. They are bigger than my head.

Anyone else get any good deals lately?

...a free citrus juicer, a $15 juicer- juicer, a $5 mandolin-esque slicer, and a free  food dehydrator.

I can top all:

I recently moved, and I was lookin' for (on the "free stuff" on craigslist):
a couch
a dining table
a tv stand

first post I see:
sofa, loveseat, dining table, tv stand, all for FREEEE

We called the dude who posted it, no answer. Emailed him, no answer. Three hours pass, and finally the dude calls us (now 7 pm), since some lady was supposed to take the stuff but didn't show. Could we come tonight? Hells yes.
*But* my boyfriend (the driver) was in La Puente, the furniture was in Sierra Madre (~15 mi away), and the truck we needed to borrow was in Hollywood (22 mi away), but the owner of the truck who had the key was in Alhambra (roughly between La Puente and Hollywood). So we set off for Alhambra, where we momentarily got lost, and parking made the acquisition of the key quite difficult, then to Hollywood, where traffic was inevitably crappy, then to Sierra Madre, as the sky darkened and as we called the dude to let him know we were still coming. In fact, at one point we got his voicemail and his message had changed to "if you're asking about the free furniture, leave your name and number and I'll put you on the waiting list." We timed it so that my boyfriend's dad would arrive at Sierra Madre from La Puente at the same time (also has a truck), and finally, the free furniture was ours. Totally in good condition. The tv stand even had a swiveling top, magnetic cabinet latch thingies, and the round dining table was twice expandable into an oval.
(less exciting: after getting the furniture back to La Puente, we had to go back to Hollywood to return the truck and get back the original car)
We spent the next day washing the couches with a carpet cleaning thing, but IT WAS WORTH IT.

Yes. You are struck with awe at all my glory. It's ok. You can admit it.

P.S.: the dude was giving away his furniture because someone had given it to him when he moved to college. Not because feral cats lived in it or anything.

Geez...you all have such great finds.  I was all excited to find several pairs of healed sandals at Payless for $5 a pair but now that doesn't sound so good.  ;)

I am excited because I found a 6 ct. box of vegan fruit breakfast bars (like nutrigrain, but those ones have milk in them) at the dollar store by where I go to school for $1.

Also, I know this totally doesn't count as a score, but I love it when my parentals will buy me groceries and things.  Like, I said I wanted a big jar of peanut butter to take to school, thinking I would get the bigger but still normal sized one, most likely in an off-brand because they forget if it's me or my brother that likes skippy.  But no, they got me a 4 lb. jar of extra crunchy skippy!!!  I have been in peanut butter heaven lately.  And I'm hoping I can talk them into getting me a cute 1.5 qt personal crock pot at target that's on sale for like $7 so I can figure out how to cook my beans in it and then make delightful soups.  :-)

I bought a new (to me) vacuum cleaner today.  My old one finally died at the weekend, so I looked on gumtree and saw a Dyson for £45 - it's got a years warranty and brand new they're normally over £200!!!  I've already used it and it is amaaaaaaazing.  I love it.  Yay!

My mom owns a secondhand store, so I generally get good deals. :)
my problem is I have big feet and no one brings my size into the store haha.

I've never had anything happen with food at stores, though.

Hahaha! Yep, the whole package is in Chinese except for where it very clearly says "Vegetarian Intestines." It does not really make you want to go out and buy it, but a vegetarian acquaintance I made recommended it so I thought I would give it a whirl.

I stopped at the hfs (where I used to work) to pick up some quinoa tonight and the owner was like "oh! did you get the email about the new vegan cheese?!"  So apparently, a customer requested they carry "Sheese."  The company sent some samples and he wanted me to be the official sampler for the store!  So, I got to bring home a whole package of Bleu Cheese and the Cheddar Cheese Spread...for free!  I have wanted to try it for a long time, but Isn't that stuff pretty pricey?  I'm totally gonna make some bleu cheese dressing.  Score.

I got a 3 pack of my favorite running socks for 25 cents!!!  At first I thought it was wrong so I went back the next day and I bought another pack and it was the same price.  So I went back later that day and bought 2 more packs.

I bought a huge bag of bananas that were getting a little brown for a dollar last night.  The store close to my house always puts them on sale super cheap and I buy them and freeze them for smoothies and banana bread.  I bet there were at least 15 in the bag.
