Broke? Can’t afford food? Can’t take that special someone on a date? Don’t sweat – CSU coupons can help even the tightest budget work.

From bagels to pizza, hair cuts to eye exams, coupons for you to use with a group of friends can be found in these free miniature books.

Say, for instance, you ask that hot (guy or girl) to go out one night but realize you have very minimal money in your pocket. Start off the evening by going to Avogadro’s Number, 605 S. Mason St., with some friends – just keep it to yourself that the coupon in your pocket says, “Buy one, get one free” for any sandwich of equal or lesser value.

Prices on sandwiches range from $3.75 to $5.95, and Avogadro’s Number has entertainment three nights a week. Swing dancing is every Monday night at 7:30 p.m., Bluegrass Jam every Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. and Open Mike every Thursday at 8:30 p.m.

After a filling meal, go to Buffalo Video and DVD, 2721 S. College Ave. The coupon book says, “Rent any DVD, game or VHS and get a rental of equal or lesser value free.” Watch one movie that night and make plans to see the other movie another night – just don’t get late charges.

Since the first date went so well, date number two is a sure thing. This time pick your date up in the mid to late morning for breakfast and go to Caf/ Bluebird, 524 W. Laurel St. This coupon reads, “Buy one entr/e, get one entr/e half price.” Prices range from $4.50 to $8.25.

After breakfast head to Sunset Beach, 1121 W. Elizabeth Ave., for a Mystic Tan. Bronze your pasty bodies with a spray on tan, which is a safe and entertaining way to get the color you’ve lost since summer. This coupon is for a half price tan when the first tan is purchased. The regular cost of a mystic tan at Sunset Beach is $25.

After you have bronzed your bodies, it is time for a little action, so head to Adrenalized Paintball, 4103 S Mason St., for some fun with a paintball gun. This handy coupon reads, “50 percent off one field fee,” so bring two coupons so you don’t have to pay full price. Each time on the field costs $20.

Now that your have wowed your date with your shooting skills, stop spending money and go home and watch the other movie you got for free at your last date.

For all of you who don’t have someone to go out on a date with (e.g. me), there are many other coupons to use with a group of friends or by yourself. Just keep the coupon book with you at all times, you never know when it will save you money.
