Day 21: Earth Day: Some Things In Life Are Free Afterall!  

Be the change you want to see in the  world…Mahatma Gandhi

Tomorrow is Earth Day! Do your part to take care of the Earth. A few stores have decided to giveaway some freebies to encourage you to be friendly to the environment.

The famous saying is that “Nothing in Life is Free.” I’m here to tell you that there are some things in life that you can get for free. While you’re traveling on this financial journey this weekend, you should be looking for the best FREE deals around! If you search the internet, the newspaper or local flyers you will find ads regarding free food items, free products even free entertainment. The following are a couple of “freebies” in celebration of Earth Day!

Just like my parents were an example for me, be an example for a child. Creating a money smart child will change the world in more ways than you can imagine.



  1. Thanks for the great FREEBIE information! Have a Great Earth Day!

  2. I definitely try to show my kids what things costs. It’s funny how frugal they get when it’s their own money. My daughter recycles are bottles ans she saves that little bit of money she gets from it. It does make a difference to show them how to have long term goals.
