Frugal Friday--birthday's out--for adults or kids
We celebrated my birthday this year very inexpensively with a little help from some birthday clubs! Since I had signed up for birthday freebies throughout the year last year, a week before my birthday I received free certificates for Coldstone icecream and a free burger from Red Robin! Hollywood Video also has a birthday club with one free rental on your bday. Since of course it would be no fun to celebrate by myself, hubby and I went together, so we needed some $$ for this. Here is the breakdown of what my birthday cost going out to eat, to icecream, and renting a dvd!
Lunch at Red Robin: We ordered two burger/fry meals(each about $10), I got a coke, and I got a free sundae which we shared, for $17 (including a good tip)
Icecream at Coldstone: Love it size icecream: Free...except for some change for a tip!
DVD from Hollywood: Free!
My husband also wanted to buy me flowers, and I like potted ones better, so I picked out some tulips at Safeway, where we also got this for free!:)
