Living life on the cheap: Some of the best things in life really are free, from restaurant meals to workouts and even facials.Who doesn't love a soothing facial! What's even better? When it's free. Clarins offers free 20-minute facials by appointment.

A facial usually costs anywhere from $85 to $100, but you can get one free at Clarins cosmetics counters in major department stores like Macy's. And gentlemen, if you've never tried it, it's highly recommended.

Want to lose weight without losing your wallet?

Skip that high-priced yoga class and do the downward dog for free at Lululemon Athletica stores across Southern California.

Every weekend, Lululemon stores roll out their mats and work up a sweat with yoga and other exercise classes led by instructors from local studios. And it's all free.

No money to hire a painter or someone to refinish your cabinets? Do it yourself, and learn the how-to basics for free at Home Depot.

The most popular free workshops include painting, ceramic-tile installation and gardening.

Kids can eat you out of house and home. So why not get out of the house and feed those hungry mouths for free? Dozens of local restaurants offer free or deeply discounted meals for kids on certain nights of the week.

Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill in Toluca Lake is one of them. At Islands restaurants, kids eat free on Tuesdays after 4 p.m. At Marie Callender's restaurants, kids eat free on Monday, Tuesday and Saturday nights.

Those deals can vary from one restaurant location to the next, so always call ahead to verify the deal.
