    Walmart has the 39-load size bottle of this product for just $2.50, making it pretty much a BOGO deal.

    DianeNC, I also have not been on the blog much the past month. Just getting back into my routine. At the Ollie's on Capital Blvd they have carts of free Christmas items. The carts are located right after the registers by the door. You do not have to purchase anything to be able to get items from the cart. I didn't need to buy anything from Ollie's last night and still left with half a cart of over $100 worth of items. I got pine cones for crafts, fuses for Christmas lights, gift tags for presents, some small ornaments for our tree (we're hoping to get our first ever full size tree next year and have nothing to put on it!), about 1000 ornament hooks, some decor branches to make an arrangement and 2 light up star tree toppers. This Ollie's had 6 or 7 shopping carts full of items and 2 big bins full. It's all Christmas stuff and has definitely been picked through but there was still a lot left.

    Thanks for the Edible Arrangements deal!

    meredith88 - I have an Ollie's close to me. Could you share about these "free" carts you mentioned? (I apologize, I haven't been able to check in on the blog this last month as I normally do so am sure I missed your original post about this.)
