Due to the unfortunate circumstances and social distancing rules, none of us will be spending Memorial Day at the beach with friends or at a family cookout. Celebrating the three-day weekend and enjoying the nice weather, however, is absolutely mandatory, and luckily, there are so many freebies and Memorial Day deals to take advantage of this year.
That being said, those seeking out a cheap way to celebrate have come to the right place.
