Food freebies, plus craft workshops for kids
Don't forget to check newspaper fliers for restaurant coupons.
We don’t have too many new food freebies this week, so we’ll repeat some of last week’s deals that are still good and remind you of a few perennial freebies, including craft workshops for kids.
Remember that not all local stores participate in all national promotions, so it’s always good to call ahead.
