How-To Get Freebies

Freebies! Who doesn’t love them? Let’s take a look at where you may be missing out on some awesome freebies…

How-To Get Freebies

 

The only thing better than getting stuff is getting free stuff, as the saying goes. While there are many great coupons at Discountrue.com with which you can save a lot of money in Kohl’s or other popular shops, there are few things better than being given free things outright. So, how can we maximize our ability to soak up all of the awesome free stuff that’s out there for us to snag? Read on for some helpful tips!

 

Signing Up For Rewards Cards

 

Whether it’s when we get our morning coffee at Dunkin Donuts, or when we head to the mall to go shopping, we are inundated with offers to sign up for rewards cards. Most of us decline and continue on our merry way, but if you are someone who frequents a certain location on a regular basis, why not be compensated for it? A variety of outlets and retailers offer their regular customers the chance to accrue points to collect free items at a later date.

 

Use Your 401(k)

 

If you are not utilizing the 401(k) plan at your current place of employment, you are leaving money on the table in the form of matching contributions. The vast majority of employers will match any amount that you are contributing to your own 401(k), and even if you end up quitting, cashing out and paying the penalty, you are still likely to turn a profit.

 

Food Samples

 

Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and Publix have all been known to provide free food samples to hungry shoppers. Check the stores in your area to see which days these stores choose to put out samples and you may luck out even more by experiencing a wine tasting. If you make it to Publix or Trader’s Joe on the right day, their samples are almost the same size as a full meal, so be sure to bring your appetite!

 

Foraging For Fruit

 

Fruit lovers who are consistently frustrated with the selection at their local supermarket are probably unaware of the fact that there is a bevy of public land where you can pick fresh fruits to heart’s content, completely free of charge. To find out where you are allowed to go foraging for fruit in your area, head to FallingFruit.org and they will help you to locate your best opportunities.

 

Get a TV Antenna

 

With so many programs offering viewers a chance to enjoy a live stream and a number of websites providing a free place to watch television after the fact, the average person who is constantly on the go does not have the same amount of time to watch television as they used to. So why keep that expensive cable box, when you can get an antenna for your television and receive the same ten channels everyone else watches for free?

 

Do you have any great ideas or suggestions?

Poise Halloween Craft – Ghostly Peedy

Ghostly Peedy

A Halloween Craft

 

Do you have Poise? Or does LBL dampen your confidence?

Can you believe Autumn is just around the corner? Pretty soon the leaves will start to change and pumpkins will appear everywhere. Autumn is quite possibly my favorite season. I love the rich bold colors, and the amazing aromas. My Spiced Chestnut hand soap and lotion are dying to jump out of the closet and into action!

With the Autumn, also comes one of my most loved holidays–Halloween. So, it was time to create a craft to use for decoration. Poise Thin-Shape pads came to mind, and Ghostly Peedy was born.

Why, Peedy, you ask? Well, let’s face it. Poise is all about pee–those Light Bladder Leakages (LBL) that can be so irritating and embarrassing. It is bad enough for me, a grown women, to have to deal with this issue from time-to-time when my asthma is acting up, but imagine being a child. Rory’s Mitochondrial Disorder has a myriad of symptoms that has included LBL. Poise® was a definite face-saver for her in middle school.

The New Thin-Shape pads from Poise are made specifically for LBL with Super Absorbent Material and Thin-Flex design making them 3x drier than period pads. So, Recycle Your Period Pads and create something fun–like Ghostly Peedy!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Pads, Badminton Birdie (or Shuttlecock), Hot Glue Gun, Glue Sticks, String, and Googlie Eyes

Craft Directions:

  1. Open a new, unused period pad
  1. Cut off one side of the pad
  1. Trim off the top layer of the pad. Repeat steps 1-3 until you have 5 or 6 pads prepped.
  1. Clean of the back side of the top layers
  1. Put some hot glue on the head of the badminton birdie
  1. Attach the first layer

  1. Tack both sides down to the birdie head with hot glue
  1. Then glue the back down
  1. Put hot glue on top of the first pad on the badminton birdie head. Repeat steps 1-6 until you have attached all of your prepared layers.
  1. Figure 10 shows what it should look like from the top
  1. Figure 11 shows what it will look like from underneath
  1. With the ghost sitting upright, tie the string tightly around the “neck” of the badminton birdie (the area between the rubber head and the skirt. Knot the string in the back. Bring the string ends around to the front and tie the string into a bow. Leave string tails hanging for decoration. (Cut a length of string that is long enough to knot around the birdie, wrap around the front and be tied into a bow with enough string to hang down the ghost body.)

  1. Hot glue on the Googlie Eyes
  1. Using a needle and fishing line or thread, you can stitch through the top of the ghosts head to add a hanging strap. Tie the fishing line or thread, and pull the knot down next to the head.

Don’t lose your confidence, keep your poise–with NEW Thin-Shape pads from Poise.
