We're all watching our family budgets these days.
Whether we’re shopping with coupons, taking advantage of two-for-one offers or finding the best free programs in our towns, we're stretching our dollars by taking advantage of a variety of offers.
Each week, this column will highlight five local deals to help your family save money.
We’ll incorporate reader feedback, so we encourage you to add the deals you've seen to our comment box and check in with Frugal Family next week to see what we've uncovered together.
This week, we've found great savings on family entertainment, camp for kids, backpacks and bikes.
