Like all good things, the era of tons of great freebies to celebrate a holiday is pretty much over. Earth Day is 4/22/19, but most of the celebrating will be done over this coming weekend.
If you live in Ohio, Mary from Mission to Save has some great freebies here.
For those of us in Southern CA, there aren’t tons of freebies.
Through 4/27/19, you can get up to 5 lbs of shredding for free from Office Depot/Office Max. Coupon can be found here.
4/20/19 is a free entrance day at any of the National Parks. There are several other days as well. You can find the complete list here. The only National Park in San Diego is Cabrillo Monument on Point Loma.
