What's Going On in the City

So another beautiful weekend is upons us there is sure much to do this weekend without breaking the bank..and think we only have 2 offical weeks before fall is upon us!

So with the spirit of raising my girl on the cheap, I wrote yesterday about my winning 4 tickects to the Argo game for tommorrow afternoon. After talking it over with Roo we passed these tickects on to another family that are HUGE Arogo fans, so we passed that win forward. Now instead just down the street between Greenwood and Coxwell you will find us at the Danforth Family day that goes from 11-2..I think Roo will have more fun at that...and it too is FREE!

So what else is on the menu if you want a free outing, or a cheap one, there is the Vegetarian Fair down at the Harbourfront...always a great chance to sample some of the newest stuff out there. There are two other community fairs this weekend, one in Malvern and one in Riverdale. I really like the Riverdale on cause you can always hit the farm to which is a kid favorite.
Heritage Toronto offers a great little walking Tour along the Danforth on Sunday. If a walk along the Danforth isnt your cup of tea perhaops you might prefer a tour of the Mount Pleasent cemetary with ROMwalks.
There sure is lots to do in our city on the cheap and for that I am forever thankful.

A Good Cheap Day

Sorry all that I havent been posting but with the start of school I got super busy but I have remained very cheap!

Today is an example of a cheap day in my house:

Got a phone call this morning from our local community newspaper( insidetoronto) that I won 4 tickets to Saturdays Argo game.

Then I went to dominion to go grocery shop as they had chicken quarters and Rice Krispies on sale..While there I used there Fresh or Free to pick up $17.57 in FREE groceries: carmael rolls, fresh orange juice, peak freens cookies, carmel teas and a candy treat for Roo all for FREE

this is what I call a good cheap day!
