Ms. Cheap talked about deals at The Nashville Zoo, and this season’s first children’s consignment sale. Nashville Zoo "August Deal Days" include half price admission after 1 p.m. Purchase tickets online at www.nashvillezoo.org , free carousel rides all day on Wednesdays, and $1 daily discount on large Dippin' Dots ice cream. Kroger Safari Fridays give you half price admission on Fridays in August and September when you show your Kroger Plus card at ticket office.
The Encores South children's consignment public sale, with 400 or more consignors, is Saturday through August 29. Location is old Our Thrift store at 1022 Columbia Highway in Franklin. www.encoresconsignmentsouth.comFor more of Ms. Cheap's money-saving ideas, visit her website www.tennessean.com/mscheap and follow her on Twitter @Ms_Cheap.
