You Complete Me Internet

Free to a Good Home

Relax, I’m not trying to get rid of kittens (or a gassy beagle puppy). Today’s list is a sampling of Internet sites that offer free stuff.

All it might cost is a bit of your time. I know, sometimes we have way more extra money than we do extra time, but if you do have a minute or two to spare you might be able to help your wallet.  I won’t lie, when you’re poor, it’s nice to get little surprises in the mail, even if it is  just a sample of fancy shampoo or laundry soap.

Note: I’ve personally used all these sites and fully recommend them as being hassle/spam/spyware free.

Absurdly Cool Freebie Finder – A free stuff aggregator, you can find offers for free samples of name brand products, free magazine subscriptions, coupons for free fast food/restaurant items and so much more.

Creative Busy Bee – A freebie finder for digital scrapbooking/altered art/hybrid supplies. Listings for everything from a single element or paper to full kits.

Free Patterns – Free patterns for quilting, sewing, yarn work  needlework, beading, paper crafts and general crafting. Also has several contests/giveaways going at any given time.

Free Stuff Finder– Same premise as the first site, although the offers seem to be a little better. Also noticed several offers/listings for free Kindle books. (And did you know you don’t need an actual Kindle? If you’re  registered at Amazon you can get a cloud reader app for your computer, or you can get a free android kindle app.)

Giveaway of the Day – This site is a gem. The premise is simple – software developers offer a product through GOTD, allowing full version downloads for free. The only catch is you have to download and activate within the 24-hour period. They’ve offered software for photo editing, music editing, audio/video burners, utility programs,  and office programs to name a few.


I hope you enjoy, or at least find them useful. And as always, feel free to pass along any links I’ve missed.

It looks really neat. I messed around with the brush options, and I was impressed by how well they mimicked various art mediums. I wish I still had my tablet’s stylus so I could make more use of it. (I don’t like doing graphic art without one!) This might give me reason to get a replacement.
