Deals: Free Days, consignment sales, free pancakes and more!
“It’s all a matter of perspective” a friend told me. I seek deals that are in my opinion cheap or free (free is better in my head). I like to share those with you and hope you will get as much fun scoring a deal as I do. But I recently had a mom tell me that some of my deals are too expensive. I guess it is all a matter of perspective. I may get something free (like the great free days listed below) and then think I can go ahead and spend some money on something else. What is a deal to me may not be what you have budgeted for your money. Please share with me, what is your perspective?
