From penny saver deals to free sopapillas, WFAA's Insider Saver Laura Thornquist is back with some tips, let's begin with spending only a few pennies for back-to-school items.

If you have a few pennies, you can grab some deals at Office Depot this week. These penny-saver deals start at one cent and go up to $1. All of these items - binders, glue, single pens, erasers, sharpies and staple removers - are under $1. You can stock up on some every-day items to use throughout the year. The prices are good this week only.

If you are hungry, stop by Taco Cabana for happy hour and free dessert. And Tuesday only, Taco Cabana is giving away free sopapillas between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Dine in or drive through to get your free cinnamon and sugar dessert. No purchase is necessary, check with your Taco Cabana to make sure it's participating.

And a reminder, your kids can get a free haircut at Remington College at the Dallas campus Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call ahead to make sure you can get an appointment. It's a great way to help the cosmetology students get in a few practice haircuts while you enjoy the benefits of a freebie.
