Free & Nearly Free Stuff – With & Without Coupons

Oops.  Lost track of the day, which was spent clipping and organizing and reorganizing coupons.  Hence the late entry.

Like many, I am one of those calorie-conscious people that reads nutritional labels.  I recently began to notice that some popular brands of ice cream (not the two listed here), often have surprisingly low calories.  Their reduced calorie varieties, such as those called things like “lite”, “low fat”, “fat free”, etc. sometimes actually have just about the same calories as their regular ice creams.  What’s really interesting is that ounce for ounce, many of these popular brands have half the calories of some of my favorite brands like Ben & Jerry’s, Starbucks, and Haagen Daz.  Well folks, we are basically paying for air to take up the same space inside those “other” brands’ containers instead of real ice cream ingredients that densely fill containers of Ben & Jerry’s, Starbucks, etc.

So, we get what we pay for (when we actually don’t get it free, that is).
