Being on a summer schedule has me so messed up. All week long every day felt like Friday, but of course it wasn’t. And then when it finally was Friday, today, guess what? I thought it was Thursday. I figured I’d write Freebie Friday today and post it in time for Friday, July 19. Except today is Friday. So my apologies if you are getting this post late. I hope because of my spacey nature this week you haven’t missed out on any upcoming freebies.
Speaking of freebies have you been following my new weekly column on Parade.com? Two of my recent posts have covered freebies–free and cheap things to do with your kids this summer; and free ways to find missing money or unclaimed funds and property that your state may be holding in your name. This post includes links to all 50 states. I hope you’ll check it out. I found free money for my husband just in writing that story!
As a reminder under each of the categories below–free food, and free stuff–I’ve listed freebies by date, if there is a date attached to the offer or giveaway. Those freebies come first in each category, and then I’ve listed everything else below.
With the newest FTC rules about blogger disclosures, any freebies that I’ve included that have an affiliate link are makred with an asterisk (*). I’m hoping that is good enough for the FTC.
