There's nothing that'll make your day more
than getting something for free. These days there's a large variety
of ways to get free stuff. Freebies can range from free e-mail
addresses to free t-shirts to free food. If you're having the
freebie blues, here's a list of ways to find your
I'm always anxious to get the Sunday morning newspaper so I can look
through the Sunday coupons. Occasionally you will find a coupon
that's good for a free item - no strings attached. Usually, it's buy
one, get one free. In addition, I like to look out for those $1 or

or cookie samples.

"If the item rings up at the wrong price, you get that item for
