The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Stephanie:
I like to visit Panera Bread about 10 minutes before they close, because at that time they are getting rid of all their baked goods. I went in one night to get bagels to bring in to work the next morning and the girl working there only made me pay for one bagel and gave me two huge bags of bagels for free!
She told me they donate whatever they have left to a charity every night. They always end up having so much leftover that they give some to customers at the end of the night as well. Since then, I visit a couple times a month for bagels or pastries. They always send me home with a huge bag, I don't even have to ask!
