Here's Where You Can Get Free & Cheap Food for New Year's Eve

Ring in the new year with cheap and free food you can get all over town.

My New Year's resolutions involve all the usual things: walk more, travel more, be on my phone less, and most importantly, spend less. The world is an expensive place to be, and that means I can't spend to my whims. Fortunately, there are a ton of New Year's Eve and New Year's Day food deals to be found so I can at least start 2023 sticking to one of my goals.

If you also want to save money, whether it is part of your resolutions or your bank account would appreciate a break after the holidays, check out all the deals you can find in the final hours of 2022.
