From free treats to photos, there are a bunch of First Day Of Spring Freebies you can pick up today (March 20th). Find them all in this post.
For more ways to save, check out all of our frugal posts.
It’s the first day of spring, although you wouldn’t know that because of the weather. It’s so cold outside pretty much everywhere. But that doesn’t mean we’re turning down a free frozen treat, does it? Nope.
Get the freebies today to celebrate the first day of spring today and the warmer weather tomorrow (or next week or next month. Whatever Mother Nature decides).
To help you celebrate, we put together a list of the best free food and other items that you can get today at various chains to celebrate the beginning of spring.
And keep that in mind. We listed (mostly) only national fast food chains and stores with freebies. Of course, your local ice cream shops may be (and probably are) offering freebies and deals to kick off the first day of the season. But, we couldn’t include all those small shops without this list being extremely long.
The First Day Of Spring is just one of the fun National Days that restaurants and shops celebrate annually. Check out our list of the Top 20+ National Days For Freebies And Deals to make sure you don’t miss any fun days this year.
