I've always wondered why my parents decided to have so many children, but now I know the answer: so that they can get as many freebies that are given away to individuals. Case in point, if you stop by any Home Depot store today, you'll receive a free Ecosmart CFL lightbulb just for asking.
I don't have any kids yet, so I plan on sending my dogs into the store with a sign around their neck asking for a freebie. It's about time they started pulling their own weight around here!
Oh, and as always, you might want to call ahead to your local store just to make sure they're participating.
