How to Get Your Mailbox to Deliver Loads of FREEBIES

Good Monday everyone! I hope and pray that everybody is staying warm. As I write this post, it is all of 3 degrees outside. Wow.

Neal: "What do you think the temperature is?" Del: "One".

The motto of the postal service says: "Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds". My mailman certainly stayed true to his words this fine morning as he and his trusty little jeep slid through the treacherous streets of Oak Ridge subdivision. Indeed, quite a bounty I received in freebies today, BUT I will save the specifics for the next Saturday Mail Call this weekend!

So, can you get all sorts of goodies, gadgets and thingamabobs to the point to where it seems like Christmas year round? Sure. There are all kinds of websites and blogs devoted to all things free and cheap, but I mainly stick to four different ones. Any other sites mostly seem to duplicate each other. Some just seem "seedy" and "virusy" (is that a word?).

HOWEVER, here are the sites I trust, have great luck with and check into daily:

Free Stuff Times:
Free Stuff Finder:

Useful Tips: 

  • Stick to the most recent posts on these sites. Don't click on any of the archives on the sides of the post, as most of the offers there are expired and you will just end up annoyed! 
  • Create another email address specifically for freebie finding. Many offers require you to give them your email address, and you might not want to keep cleaning house in your regular inbox!
  • Most (if not all) the offers I have ever found on these sites have been legitimate. BUT - I do not personally give any financial information to any company for any reason. You never know.....
  • Check each of these sites DAILY. It only takes a few minutes on each site to check out the newest posts. If you don't check every day or two you might miss something fab!
Well, folks, there you have it! Happy hunting and have a fun, frugal and fabulous day from our house to yours!
