How do people get FREE TP?

I've watched a couple of the Extreme Couponing shows (and yes, I know its like watching a trainwreck, but oh well)... and they are always talking about how they have a shower (or whatever) full of free toilet paper! That never seems to happen in my little world....I've got to figure that one out. Anyway, did some grocery shopping today, and while its not my best day ever.... its a decent day. It would have been better if I had STUCK TO MY LIST, but oh, well.... here's my trip to Publix:

1 12pk Publix Toilet Paper (definitely not free...sigh)
2 Hartz Crunch n Clean Dog Biscuits
1 Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwhiches (this is the offlist part)
2 Smart Balance Milk
2 Ben & Jerry's
2 Herbal Essences
2 Keebler Club Crackers
2 Playtex Tampons (raincheck)
2 Lysol All Purpose Computers
2 Doritos Chips
1 Clean & Clear face cleanser
2 International Delight Coffee Creamers
2 Bertolli Pasta Sauce
2 Ramen Noodles
1 Bumblebee Tuna 4 Pack
1 Kraft Homestyle Mac N Cheese
1 Pepsi Max

Spent: $49.97
Saved: $44.59 or 47%


  1. Hi! I'm a new follower of your blog! You can check out my site, and link up your savings as well!
    Looking forward to seeing more!


  2. I read your blog all the time! Expect to see my linkup momentarily! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I've been wondering this as well. Unless they have a ton of money makers, but still. I did pretty good on my Publix trip today. Spent $62.83, but saved $84.11!

  4. You definitely did better than I! :-)

  5. You could try switching to washable stuff (google wee wipes, family wipes or cloth TP if you're not familiar with the idea). There's not much freer than not needing to buy at all and, especially with two of you already in the house, the additional washing should be negligible.
