There are several ways to ensure you have more money.

You can earn more money. By getting an additional job, or a better paid job, working overtime.


You can spend less money.

For the lazy amongst us its often easier to spend less than earn more. We will show you how to spend less without making drastic cuts to your lifestyle.

Save money on phone calls - install Skype and chat for free. You can have a phone number with it from them - so people can "ring" you - but that costs money> The basic service is completely free. Try it. We have! My friend Geoff told me about this and he's always hunting for free ways of chatting to people.
Skype's been bought by ebay.
Has your ISP stopped having newsgroups?Or is their service really not very good? If you'd like a great newservice try Giganews - they have a free trial and very reasonable costs if you decide to stay with them. I use this service!

Be frugal with your freebies. A lot of forums and websites list many freebies we don't. We only list legitimate free stuff which is available to everyone. We don't list freestuff which isn't intended for the general public and we try to make sure that all the freebies we list are valid.


Definition of freebies - a freebie is something you receive for free at no cost. Free stuff can be almost anything. Freebies should be completely free whether receieved by post of as a download.

I've been hunting freebies for many years both online and in the real world. I love trying things for free and have tried many dozens of free samples over the years. In the good old days of freebies on the internet I receievd a fantastic mug from the US, a huge NASA poster, some flipflops from Baileys, loads of free shampoo samples, some anti-aging cream.

I was a student at Liverpool University and remember very well the thrill of threshers fair! hundreds of stalls offering freebies in order to get us to join up. The guardian gave away carrier bags full of goodies as did the times. There were loads of bizarre things on offer but for some reason Liverpool wasn't privvy to the great student pack my friend recieved from the NUS at Manchester! Her pack had a free pot noodle, condoms, tampax and loads of other free stuff! I was *so* jealous. Even though I had just put my grant in the bank and could have gone and purchased hundreds of pot noodles I knew it'd never taste as good as her free pot noodle would!

Some years later and I was climbing at one of Salford Uni's sports halls (on the climbing wall incase you're wondering) and someone came in saying there was loads of free stuff being given away in another part of the building as part of freshers week. Oh it was heaven! The freebies had improved a little - I got a ruler from one of the newspaper's stands, free copy of the paper and some vouchers for discounts.

I'm training my son to love freebies too - we visit the supermarket and always walk past the bit where they put free samples of cakes out to try! As every expectant mum knows there are hundredsof companies wanting to give you free samples when you're pregnant, and in the first few years of having a baby as they know how you're likely to stick with what you know.

I'm now more careful about what freebies I apply for. I only apply for things I want, that I will use and will be useful to me.
I also make sure anything I have that I don't want anymore gets passed on to others, rather than thrown away.
