    @jutoman: Costco has the best prices on Xbox One’s that I’ve seen around. You should check them out. As for straight up discounts or coupons, I haven’t a clue.

    This is my first week having followed GimmeFreebies on FB, and I am glad that I joined. I like seeing the great free stuff to go and do on the weekends as well. Getting paid once a month makes it difficult to make the weekends fun, especially when you have kids.

    Thank you for putting together these lists every week. We don’t always have the money to do things on the weekends so having these lists really helps when it comes to planning our family time! :)

    Thank you! I love the Home Depot workshops that they have for the children. The ones around where I live have the Shriner Clown’s come in as well and they make balloon animals for the children and make them laugh as well :)
