Free in January

This year, I'm going to continue to keep a record of what I get free, but now I'm going to focus on the retail value of each item rather than the places I get the items, so I will know how much I saved during the year.
How do I get free items? The most usual ways are by combining sale prices with high-value coupons, by using rebates, by rolling drug store "credits" into new purchases (Extra Care Bucks and Register Rewards), and by accepting items my friends offer me.
Scotch Pop-Up Tape: $4
5 blocks Kraft cheese: $7.50
Philly cream cheese: $1.50
5 bags Quaker Quakes: $9
2 Chobani Greek yogurt: $2.68
7 Oikos Greek yogurt: $14
Duck packing tape: $2
2 bottles Eucerin Calming Itch Relief: $16
Eucerin Intensive Repair Hand Creme: $5.69
Schick Quattro Titanium Trimmer: $12
2 large bottles Ester-C: $22
2 small bottles Ester-C: $18
3 refill packs A&H Essentials: $12
Arnold Whole Grain bread: $3
6 lb Italian sausage: $24
2 lb pork chops: $8
Total: $161

Your list inspired me to start my own list each month. It's amazing how much a few things each week add up over a month. Thanks!
