My "Free" Birthday!

I recently had a birthday. I won't tell you how old I am. Let's just say I'm legal, and leave it at that! While lately things have been looking up for us financially, we are still living very lean. So, here are the ways we celebrated my birthday for free/cheap. I took advantage of any Birthday freebies that were being offered.

1.) FREE Movie. Used a coupon from the Entertainment book for a free movie admission on your birthday. Also used a coupon in the same book for a Free Popcorn with a large drink purchase. All together that saved $14 dollars!

2.) FREE Meal. I had signed up for their birthday club during an earlier visit; and received an email coupon for a free dinner during my birthday week. Another $14 dollar saved.

3.) CHEAP Luxury. Used a Groupon for a mani/pedi. The groupon cost $25 for services normally costing $65. A savings of $40 bucks!

4.) FREE book from Amazon . I used some Amazon gift cards that I earned from Swagbucks to buy a cookbook that I had been eyeing for quite some time. I actually purchased enough items to make the shipping free as well.

This took a little planning and arranging schedules. But it can be well worth it in order to have a little fun and relaxation on your birthday while keeping a small budget!

Want to know who does Birthday freebies? Try Hey, it's Free! For a list of restaurants and other retailers that give birthday freebies. They try to keep the list updated, but just remember that all businesses can change their policies anytime.

Happy Birthday!
