You know me and how much I love to save money. I love freebies and now that Eldest has Type 1 Diabetes I will be watching for Diabetes resources like a hawk. (Sorry the story is going up AFTER this deal post BUT some of these free resources expire Dec 31, 2014 .) I will try to post quarterly or more often if I find deals that can be used by other’s.
