Free Fruit Trees!

There’s free fruit trees being handed out on Saturday by  the good people over at Tree Folks.  Every household can get two, just bring your Austin Energy bill or driver’s license with an Austin address.

This time around you can get pear, plum peach and persimmon.  Next month they’re handing out citrus and fig! These are some good people–get there early so you don’t miss yours.





Free Holiday Fun

The Trail of Lights goes live today, with free nights until Dec. 15th.  The free nights are likely to be crowded, but given how much you might spend on a shuttle/admission/funnel cake/ferris wheel combo, braving the crowds is the frugal option!
