Ultimate Birthday Cheap Date

My awesome husband turned 31 the other day and we celebrated with a “scavenger hunt” of sorts—but instead of buying, we were enjoying freebies, courtesy of the many birthday clubs for which I signed him up. (If you want to sign up, I suggest doing it six months in advance just to get your name in the system early. Googling birthday clubs will bring up many long lists.)

The ones we ended up going with are local and involve totally free giveaways—not buy one get one free deals or other types of promotions. Also, they were not sit-down restaurants. Our strategy was to collect as many freebies as we wanted and then make a picnic with them.

Off we go on our adventure!

Coupons in hand . . .

Our first stop was Moes . . .where we picked up a free entree! Actually, we had to pay 55 cents for it, because of tax. I don’t get paying on sales tax on something I didn’t buy, but hey, couldn’t argue.

Next stop was Sonic, where David selected a free drink (he had to pick between a drink, tater tots, and a cream slush. Hard!)

We also hit up Orange Julius, where he picked up a free strawberry milkshake drink.

We went to Baskin Robbins next, because there’s only one in our area and we didn’t want to double back. David got his favorite flavor and we both indulged on our way to . . .

Firehouse Subs! So we got a nice hot sub from there and finally our picnic was ready.

The weather wasn’t as cooperative as all the friendly businesses who have birthday clubs, and as soon as we set up the picnic, it started raining so we gathered up the stuff and ran into the playground . .  .

where we finished up a lovely birthday picnic in the rain.

It was a happy day.
