One of the funnest value tactics I have tried out and reported on is the Menards free stuff tactic. It’s hard to describe the amount of free-after-rebate (FAR) merchandise Menards puts in their ads each week. Instead of trying to describe it, I’ll present here a visual record of two year’s worth of FAR merchandise that I acquired during my Menards free stuff experiment. The total retail value of this collection is $4,946.46, but my total investment to acquire is was about $8 in postage stamps! As you’ll see, “fun” isn’t the only word you could use to describe what I did; maybe “extreme” or “blown out” could also work 🙂
Photos start with the first haul I came home with on July 7th, 2013, and progress chronologically to the last one in my 2 year marathon on July 5th, 2015. Enjoy!
