Every Friday this summer, there will be so many free and fun events happening in Boston and Massachusetts. Every Wednesday this summer I will do a roundup of events especially for Friday! Here are the free events for this upcoming Friday!
Highland Street Foundation Free Fun Friday Schedule
Free Fun Fridays take place every Friday with free admission to great attractions in Massachusetts thanks to the Highland Street Foundation.
Entertainment Books are a great way to save on local restaurants, attractions, retail shops, travel and much more. There is such a range of great deals in the book as well as access to online coupons as well.
For example, I was stalking watching hotel prices for a particular hotel on a particular date at various search engines and through the hotel directly. There was a special promo code in the book for the hotel’s chain and it was about $25 less per night than the amount I paid with another discount.
The savings from that hotel discount alone paid for the cost of my entertainment book. Entertainment Books can be a great value if you do travel, eat out, shop, etc. often. There are a lot of fast food and retail options in the book, I’ll usually keep it in my car for on the go savings.

Patriots Training Camp is a great way to cheer on the Patriots and watch football at Gillette Stadium this summer for free.
The first practice open to the public will be Thursday, July 24, 2014 starting at 9:15 AM.
A very popular attraction at training camp is the Patriots Fan Zone with inflatables, skilled competitions, face painting and more, which is perfect for kids!
Both the Pats training camp and Fan Zone are free and open to the public with free parking at Gillette Stadium too.
The first training camp schedule dates open to the public are 7/24/14 through 7/27/14 at 9:15 AM each day; however, more dates will be added through the summer. As more dates and times get added through the summer, they will be uploaded to the Patriots Training Camp website.

*Every Monday throughout 2014 I will be sharing Money Savings Tips to help stick to and expand your budget!
Planning Ahead is one of my favorite money saving tips and can be used and interrupted many different ways. By planning ahead you can save so much money because you are prepared for the upcoming expenses as well as have a game plan.
You also tend to overspend less because you foresee expenses and plan for them.
For example, I really need want a snow blower this winter. The best month to buy a snow blower is August since it’s not a popular item in the summer. I will pay a lot less for a snow blower in August than I would after the first snow storm by planning ahead.
There are many different “best times to buy list” and I recommend checking out to help you figure out when to buy certain items like this one and this one.
Also, planning ahead for big spending months (like December) can help your budget. Start brainstorming for gift ideas now and start making a holiday budget. Try planning ahead and buying items when they are at the lowest price to help overspending the week before Christmas.
Do you plan ahead your expenses? Have you already started Christmas shopping?

I was able to send myself a free coffee using two different e-mail addresses, just in case “your friend” needs a Monday morning pick-me-up in a few days, but you can send the free coffee to multiple friends as well.
