Frugal Column September 4

September is always a fun, freebie month for me because it is my birthday month. I always look forward to my FREE cappuccino at Starbucks and FREE ice cream from Baskin Robbins. Many companies are promoting their reward clubs or eclubs which give you coupons throughout the year but something special on your birthday. This is a missed opportunity for anyone who doesn’t time the time to sign up. Sit down and get comfy at your computer and start filling out these online registrations. I do recommend creating a gmail, Yahoo, or other no-cost email account just for freebies so your primary in-box is not bombarded by newsletters.
