Frugal Friday: August 3
This weekend score huge back-to-school savings for the kids, meet some major Oklahoma athletes at a fan appreciation day, catch your own dinner at a fishing derby and pick up free school supplies at a local carnival.
First, want to get up close and personal with OSU football team? What about the Cowgirls soccer team?
Then head to Stillwater for Fan Appreciation Day Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.
At Gallagher-Iba Arena you’ll get a free poster to have your favorite athlete sign and you’re allowed to bring one other item for them to autograph.
Sorry, no pictures with players will be allowed.
If you want fresh local catch on your table, head to Moore Saturday morning.
Bring the family to Moore’s fishing derby and clinic at Little River Park.
Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. for the clinic at 8 a.m.
Kids 5 to 15 and parents are asked to bring your pole and bait for the free fishing fun.
Even though most kids are already back the classroom, it never hurts to get a good deal on back-to-school gear.
If your kids still need some new clothes, why not get them tax-free?
From now until midnight Sunday, get clothing and shoes under $100 each without paying the usual cut to Uncle Sam.
Free backpacks and school supplies
If tax-free isn’t good enough, how about completely free?
A few churches are giving out backpacks, school supplies and free food this weekend.
Saturday morning the OKC Faith Church is giving away 5,000 backpacks and 10,000 burritos at their annual “backpacks and burritos” event.
Catch the required presentation at 9 a.m. and the free food and school supplies to follow.
Sunday catch the carnival at Capitol Hill Baptist Church for free school supplies.
From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., kids in kindergarten through 12th grade get the free gear, play games, enjoy inflatables and win door prizes at this southwest Oklahoma City church.
