Please bring your favorite knife, and we will be happy to sharpen it for you. Please note: Limit 1 knife per customer.

Stocking the Pantry

Discover how your pan and preparations make the difference between well-cooked and soggy!

Prep School: Learn to Braise

As the weather cools, everyone craves tender braised meats and vegetables with satisfying sauces. Learn how to braise correctly, from which pan to use to how to adjust a recipe if you are making it on the stove, in the oven or in an electric slow cooker. This class will also teach you how to create that slow-cooked, concentrated flavor more quickly and tell you which foods are best for braising.

Frugal Tip 8/30/12 Keep Game Pieces Together

image from Jazzie and Tahlia

Today's Frugal Tip is inspired by Jazzie and Tahlia.

To save money on toys avoid having to replace game pieces. For card games keep them in one spot using storage containers. The ones Jazzie and Tahlia used are from IKEA but to save even more money I say re-purpose old baby wipe containers and do the same thing!

1000 Posts and Counting!!

1000 posts image 
When I published my first post on March 22, 2010 I had no idea whether or not I was going to keep up with this site. I figured if nothing else it would encourage me to seek out freebies more often for myself and my family. Then, as time went on I wanted to get more serious... I bought the official domain http://www.TampaBayFreebies.com on 10/10/10 because it was an epic date and my awesome pal Michele Northrup of Intensity Academy thought a site like this would be a good idea and that I was on to something. 

I haven't posted nearly as often as I would like but I have thoroughly enjoyed every post I have done, every freebie I have received personally and the responses I get from fans that have taken advantage of freebies I've mentioned. It's hard to believe that I've written and posted 1,000 times on this site as of this post.

I hope to grow this site even more and work even harder on it in the coming days, weeks, months, years... My plan has always been to make this site a tool that Tampa Bay residents can go to any time day or night to find something free to do, a place to get a free drink, a free meal or just to snag some cool free samples and products. Now, all that's left is to actually make that happen! Either way I'm excited at the 1,000 post milestone and I can't wait to see where things take me going forward!

Frugal Tip 8/20/12 Don't Waste Condiments


frugal tip of the day graphic

This tip is from the Whole Foods July/August 2012 newsletter.


Save money by not letting your condiments go to waste. Grab your condiments and make dressings and spice up deviled eggs. Throw veggies in leftover pickle juice to soak up the flavor, add steak sauce to sloppy joes and other meat dishes and finish off barbecue sauce to make barbecue pizzas instead of traditional ones. Get creative to use the last little bits of everything.

Frugal Tip 8/14/12 Use a Substitute


frugal tip of the day graphic

Need to make dinner or some other recipe but are lacking some ingredients? Rather than waste money on the gas it takes to run to the store, see if you have a substitute for what you need for your recipes. For example, if you need a cup of beef/chicken broth but don't have any you can substitute 1 bouillon cube plus 1 cup boiling water OR 1 tablespoon soy sauce plus enough water to make 1 cup OR 1 cup vegetable broth. Another example: if you need a cup of corn syrup but have none you can sub 1 1/4 cup white sugar plus 1/3 cup water OR 1 cup honey. Check this list of common substitutions out HERE

Frugal Tip 8/7/12 Cancel Unused Subscriptions


frugal tip of the day graphic

Now, considering I said recently to get subscriptions to you favorite magazines this may seem like an odd frugal tip. However, if you are not reading the things you are subscribing too, cancel them! There is no sense paying crazy annual fees for stacks of magazines that are just forming piles of clutter in your place. So, cancel your unused subscriptions and when you really start desiring the opportunity to read a magazine either buy one or go the extra frugal mile and see if you can read it for free online or at the library.

Frugal Tip 8/6/12 Keep an Eye on Your Accounts


frugal tip of the day graphic

I was charged twice for my lunch at a restaurant last month. Odds are this was just a simple error, but paying double doesn't exactly thrill me considering I'm trying to save every penny I can. Spend a little time every week, month or whatever you think is best looking at your bank accounts, credit card statements and any other accounts you have just to make sure you haven't been charged multiple times for transactions and to check for any other errors!
