Cheap Chillin’ with Coffee & Sweets

Let the birthday freebies begin πŸŽˆ

Today, I took a trip to Atlanta. Originally, I planned to bike the Silver Comet Trail and venture to get some birthday freebies afterwards, but the rain switched my plans around.

Before biking, I ended up going to the Corner Bakery Cafe in Buckhead. For my free birthday reward, I could get any bakery sweet. I had never been to Corner Bakery, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but when I saw the blueberry handpie staring back at me from behind the glass display, I knew that was going to be my freebie. A pastry stuffed with gooey, blueberry, goodness, all free and all mine β€” yum.

SO good, and free.

forever frugal & free,
