Tax Day is admittedly only exciting if you're getting a big tax return deposited in your checking account. If you're one of those celebrating, listen to your grandma and be sure not to spend it all at once. Check out these food freebies and deals happening today so you can save the majority of your money for the things you really want in life, like a Soul Cycle package or a flight to visit a friend (or rent, ugh).
