We all know about the freebies for active duty military, retired military, and veterans on veterans day but there are a few freebies available all year around including free wedding dresses and free military welcome home banners.
I remember Mr. Frugal Navy Wife's and my first homecoming. Our oldest was 7 months old and he had left when he was less than a month old!
I remember when I got the timeframe window of him coming home I was so excited. I cleaned the house from top to bottom. I don't think it has ever been so clean since. My goal was not to focus on the time! We spend time planning his homecoming everything from banners and balloons inside and the Free Military Welcome Home Banners and decor outside.
I made all his favorite food. I did a grocery store run to make sure he had all his favorite drinks and snacks, and all his toiletries etc.
Our 2nd deployment when he came home it was because we were PCSing (transferring duty stations) so he came home mid-deployment, I was also 33 weeks pregnant. I had been packing the house alone. We picked him up at the airport and it wasn't such a huge homecoming but we were able to use the banner again for him. (For anyone wondering the move then put me into labor days after we got to our new duty station and our oldest daughter was born at 37 weeks! Another story for another time.)
Since 2008, Build A Sign has given away more than 275,000 Military Welcome Home banners to friends and families for their loved ones returning home from a deployment. It’s our way to say thanks for their service and sacrifice and to make all homecomings a little more special.

I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
