After an especially long and grueling winter, we've made it to spring -- hallelujah! And what could make the new season brighter than the chance to win a new wardrobe or score some free food?

Here are three ways to celebrate spring in savings style:

1. Grab a half-off shake all summer long at Sonic. America’s drive-in is rolling out the warm weather with a summer filled with half-price shakes. We’re talking flavors like peanut butter cookie, Oreo cheesecake, strawberry banana and more. Just head to your local Sonic Drive-In location after 8 p.m. through summer.

2. Get a free item from Kroger every Friday. That’s right – free! Each Friday, just head over to Kroger’s website, click your favorite Kroger grocery store and see that day’s deal download. Talk about TGIF!

3. Enter to win a $250 gift card through ShopAtHome.com. Now through May 4 is the ShopAtHome.com and JCPenney Spring Fashion Fever Pinterest Contest. And, if you love Pinterest as much as we do, entering this contest will be a blast. Four winners will walk away with a $250 JCPenney gift card. Now, that sounds like the perfect way to kick-off into spring in style, don’t you think?
