Believe it or not, the summer is winding down and school will be starting up before too long. Here’s some information to help you make the most of the rest of the summer and prepare for the upcoming school days. (On the cheap, of course.)
Scroll down for a list of back-to-school events. Many include free school supplies. You’ll also find events with free concerts, bounce houses, free food and much more. Even a free haircut or two. All of these are free events. There’s also at least one event just for teachers.
If you’re not doing this already, make sure to subscribe to Triangle on the Cheap by email. Your email address will never be shared, sold, or spammed. We’re also on Facebook and Twitter. And of course check out the big list of free things to do in the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill areas this week.
