Next week is Teacher Appreciation day!  Although, this day is pretty much on the very bottom of the list of reasons of why I chose to teach, it is also so touching to be recognized.  Especially in today’s society where teaching is becoming more and more vilified and scrutinized by the media and politics, a fresh bunch of flowers from the front yard really does make my heart swell.

I started to scour the internet because I know several businesses are also honoring teachers this week.  I am cheap frugal learning to stretch my dollar so I thought I might see what is out there. Here are a couple of great treats I found online:

  • Buca di Beppo ~ Get a FREE Buca Taster Bowl of Ravioli or Baked Ziti. Teacher ID required. Valid 5/6 thru 5/10 with coupon. Dine-in Only.
  • Chick-fil-A ~ Get a FREE Chicken Sandwich on Tuesday, May 7th ( 5-7-2013 ) from 10:30 AM to Close. Must have a valid teacher ID.
  • New Your and Company30% off in stores May 2-8th with teaching ID (usually it is only 15% so WOW!)
Although it is not a homemade card (I love these and save them year to year!), some of them might make a cheap dinner for my family and I and that does make me feel good!
