Thrifty Birthday Tricks!

Time to get thrifty Young & Free Michigan!

As some of you may know I celebrated my birthday on November 10th! I had such a fun birthday, I love celebrating and having parties. Not only is your birthday a great time to party, but its a great time to save money! 

Everyone knows about the free ice cream scoop you can get at a restaurant, but did you know you can get 15% off from American Eagle during your birthday month or you can get $3 in Extra Bucks from CVS! I have even seen free meals on your birthday when you sign up to be on the mailing list. Honestly, signing up for mailing lists are worth it! They give you great updates and coupon codes, and some of them give you a free gift on your birthday! Because my birthday month is the same month of black Friday sales, I will be waiting to use some of those discounts around black Friday! So next time someone asks you if you want to sign up for their loyalty card, you might want to reconsider and say yes. 

I also want to also add, I can tell I'm growing up because when people asked me what I wanted for my birthday I listed things like, a sewing machine and power tools! I got one power tool and come Christmas I plan on have all of the attachments and maybe even my sewing machine! Those are gifts that could end up saving me money in the long run! Remember stay thrifty and don't spend a massive amount of money on things that aren't worth it. When it's time to make a wish list, ask for things that are useful, things that you want or need, or things that you would never buy for yourself!
