How to Get Free Groceries (Comedy)

Here are Mitchell and Webb on a sneaky way to get free food. It's got a fair amount of swearing, so be warned if that sort of thing bothers you.

Free Visit to the Baltimore Museum of Industry

Anne Arundel County residents can visit the Baltimore Museum of Industry for free on April 2nd from 12 - 3. Story time will be going on at various exhibits and visitors can learn how to repair books at the Book Hospital. Adults must show their library cards for free admission, but children can enter via their parent's cards. Don't have a library card? You have a few days to get one, and then you will access to so many fantastic things for free. http://www.aacpl.net/events/aacpl-library-day-baltimore-museum-industry-...

Free Guacamole and Chips From Chipotle

If you go to http://www.guachunter.com you can play a find the difference game and win free guacamole and chips. You play three rounds and should find 5 differences per round.

I only found 3 but won anyway.

Coupon is good through April 10th I believe.

Free Seeds While You Save a Bee

While supplies last you can get a packet of flower seeds for free. You'll be committing to growing them on your property to provide bees with food. The feed a bee project would also like you to take pictures of the progress of your Bee Garden and post them on your favorite social media.

Just a warning: if you watch the little video on the website you may find yourself humming the song without being aware of it. It's horrifyingly catchy.

Free Kindle Edition of Curious George Goes to the Zoo

I don't know how long this is going to be free, but right this second you can get Curious George Goes to the Zoo for the Kindle for free. http://www.amazon.com/Curious-George-Goes-Zoo-Rey-ebook/dp/B0095YNNJC/

I've never understood why Curious George would want to go the zoo. Wouldn't he be worried about being stuck behind bars? Wouldn't it be awful to see his distant relatives in a cage? Perhaps these questions are answered in the book. I can't remember the plot at all. Anyway, enjoy.

Using Betty Crocker's Site to Find Sale Items

I just posted this on reddit, in response to a question, and thought I would cross post here. This feature can be super helpful.

Betty Crocker's site can be helpful while making your menu/grocery list. Once you find a recipe you like, scroll down past the ingredients and you'll find a text box labeled "Save on this recipe!". Once you enter your zip you'll get a list of stores in your area that have ingredients on sale.

For instance if I look at banana bread right now I can see that Aldis has bananas on sale.

Last fall when I was making dishes with butternut squash I got a list of four stores, all with different things on sale.

Link to the banana bread recipe I mentioned: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/banana-bread/51427396-6764-4b0a-a73a...

Help for New Farmers

The USDA has a new portal for new and beginning farmers that has lots and lots of information. For instance I discovered that new and beginning farmers have first dibs on farmland for sale by the USDA? (More info here: http://www.resales.usda.gov/resales/index.jsp)
If you've ever daydreamed about having a homestead you should do yourself a favor and investigate the site.
