First Saturday Freebies are back! If you didn’t know, the first Saturday of each month is loaded with freebies and great deals, and I’m outlining a few of my favorites below…
If you’re going to pick one weekend to capture some free family fun and do some shopping, typically you can count on the first Saturday of the month to deliver.
Here’s a synopsis of some of your best first Saturday free options:
First Saturday Freebies
Home Depot Free Kids Workshop
The first Saturday of every month, kids can build a free project, get a free apron, a free pin, a certificate of completion and a snack. View the full Home Depot Free Kids Workshop schedule here.
*Currently suspended due to COVID-19
Free Museum Weekend
Bank of America customers can visit one of over a hundred museums and cultural institutions across the country on the first weekend of every month, simply by showing their Bank of America card. Find full free museum weekend details here.
* Check with your local museum to see when they are reopening after the stay-at-home orders
Goodwill Half Price Saturday
You can always find a great deal at Goodwill, but you’ll find an exceptional deal on the first Saturday of every month because EVERYTHING is half price! This is my favorite time to get clothes for my kids; once you know what brands work best on them, it’s easy to do a quick scan to find what works for your family. Here’s the Goodwill Half Price Saturday schedule.
* Check with your local store to see if they have reopened due to COVID-19
Lowes Build and Grow Workshop
While this freebie isn’t the first Saturday of each month, the Lowes Build and Grow workshop typically happens every other Saturday and features another free project kids can build. (typically based around whatever children’s movie is in theaters at the time).
UPDATE: As of January 2020: Build and Grow workshops are back! They will be on the 2nd Saturday of every month.
* Currently canceled until further notice due to COVID-19
