Hello, fabulously frugal friends! If you spent your last five paychecks on holiday gifts, champagne, and snow tires, you'll be happy to know that this month is chock full of free events, concerts, and films.
On January 21, for example, MIT is hosting a hummus taste-off. Students will create custom chickpea blends using funky ingredients like peanut butter and Tabasco sauce — you get to taste and judge the offerings. Sounds like a free lunch, right?

[I hope they have hummus in heaven.]
