I LOVE free things – who doesn’t? I love coupons, discount deals, and clearance sales. And not just for my family, but to be able to frugally donate items while living on a fixed income. One of my favorites is Kmart Freebie Saturday!
Every week Kmart gives away a small item. Last week it was a pencil case and another time was a coloring book. This week they are giving away a pair of kid’s sunglasses.
Kmart Freebie Saturday is primarily for kids 12 and under. However I have heard that Kmart is flexible and has given items to teachers, and other adults. Make sure to the store early, as supplies are limited.
Not only is this a great deal because it is FREE – it is also a wonderful opportunity to have a teachable moment with your children. They can get the item for free – but then they can donate it to others in need through local community shelters and organizations. Or perhaps to a Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts or even to someone else in your family or circle of neighborhood friends. There is always someone in need – and this could be one small way to develop the ability of empathy in your children at an early age.
