I just found out one of our local restaurants that has been around for over 100 years in Manhattan will not be reopening. Paris Cafe is a historic community restaurant and will be greatly missed. I have been a customer for 20+ years. Be good to your neighborhood restaurants, especially the ones that have weathered other storms (Paris Cafe even made it through Hurricane Sandy!). These beloved restaurants are a piece of history in your own neighborhood so do all you can to cherish them.

It’s great to get things for free of course. But sometimes free isn’t even worth it if the item or promotion isn’t one you need or gets you invested in a larger commitment. Also, discounts can seem to make something affordable, but if a company has hiked up prices to give you that promotion then it’s not a great deal after all. Check out the free and discount opportunities in these posts below with your kids and discuss whether the promotion is a good value for your family. Talk out the pros and cons so your kids can understand the different parts of the equation that ultimately helps you figure out whether something is a value like price, quantity, size, brand reputation, quality, reviews, shipping cost, comparison pricing, and so forth. As a bonus, you’ll likely score some great freebies and discounts at these sites!
