Freebie Friday

Free Calendar

Calendar Labs has a selection of printable templates. I was drawn to the style with lines along the side for long notes. I’d like to keep one in the barn to write down all the events & reminders to myself. It would be nice to have another just for gardening notes. Maybe another in the rabbitry to keep track of due dates etc.

Free Seeds

This is an intriguing offer from WinterSown.org. that will get you started on your garden in the dead of winter. I had good luck with this method.
Six Pack SASE ~ Six different sample-size packs will include annuals, perennials, and edibles like veggies, herb and tomato seed. Our choice of seeds but chosen with care so that what you receive will grown and thrive in your area. Your seeds come inside a brochure describing the Winter Sowing Method. This offer requires a SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope) with two first-class stamps. SASE offer is limited to residents of the USA. Non US residents may receive seeds by sending a check for $2.00 USD (US Dollars).”
“Your Choice Tomato SASE ~ You select the varieties you want from our list of tomato seed. This list is large, often near 150 varieties, but each has a description to help you choose. Your seeds come inside an instructional brochure for our easy tomato seed saving method.”

Frugal Friday: Magazine Deals

Magazine subscriptions are considered an unnecessary luxury in our household. We have two libraries within two miles of our home and they have subscriptions to many periodicals. The magazine I’m going to tell you about is free. The name is “Living the Country Life”  and it promises ideas for lawns and gardens, backyard barbecues and more. When I subscribed, I was offered quite a bonus…a year subscription to “Better Homes and Gardens” for $5. Two magazines filled with home and garden information for $5 is the frugal tip for this week.

Swagbucks! WOW!

Search & Win

I’d seen references to Swagbucks on Internet forums for sometime but never checked the program out. About the middle of November, I decided to give it a try and was surprised at how fast the points added up. By adding their search bar, doing a few surveys and participating in one special offer I’ve earned a $5 Amazon credit and enough points to cash in for either 3 more $5 Amazon credits or $10 in PayPal cash. There is also merchandise that can be purchased with Swag dollars, like Kindle books, and gift cards.
I’ve only scraped the surface of the many ways to earn Swagbucks. By taking advantage of one special offer, I garnered 400+ points and saved $300/year on a product that most people need (more about that in another post). There is a Trade-In program where old cellphones, mp3 players, books and video games can be sent in for points. Bucks can be earned by watching Swagbucks TV. A great way to save money and earn points at the same time is offered through their Coupon program.
One of my resolutions for 2011 is to take advantage of all that Swagbucks has to offer.
