Imagine that

I decided to start this blog yesterday and today I got this Glade Wisp Flameless Candle Unit,

with 2 refills courtesy of Bzzagent. I put the clean linen scent in - it is pretty nice. In my next post, I will probably talk about the free stuff I have gotten through online sweepstakes.

Lots of good stuff

Today after overhearing some of my students talking about discovering for the first time, I started thinking about how many things I have gotten for free in the last few years. The amount of free things out there is incredible. I decided to start a blog about my best freebies, and the tried and true place I go. So for those of you in my 2:00 class, here is the first post of my favorite places.

Before you ever start, get a "throw away" email account - I use gmail, but yahoo or hotmail is fine too. Use this account just for free stuff, and then if one of the places you get free stuff from spams, it does not screw up your "regular" email.

Great places for free stuff :

There are lots of other sites, but these are the best to start with. Go to the forums section and look for free stuff.

Spread the word sites - sites that ask you questions/surveys and then offer you samples of products. They give you samples etc. If you spread the word and write about it, you earn points that you can redeem for more free stuff:

OK - that is a start. I will work on this more later and try to add some picks of things I have gotten for free.
