Is it just me or are more companies suddenly trying to win your business with freebies? Call them Mama’s little helpers. I adore sites like Bargain Moose and the deal of the day. So here are a couple of my big recession busters this week. Now until June 7. Gymboree sale – 30 per cent off all of it, even the sale stuff, until end of this week. June 19th: free light smoothie at Orange Julius. Print the coupon off this blog or go to: orangejulius.com. Also take advantage of your local library. In the summer you can sign your child up for the READ program, totally free and pair them with a reading buddie volunteer to help beat the summer brain-melt. Also available in French (some areas) if you ask. Free tales for Tots and Books For Babies run thru summer in some areas. Happy Shopping!
