RealSimple.com have a list of 23 ‘surprising’ items you can get for free. Many are conditional, of course, and have a catch like long-lines etc. However, it does spur the question of what can you get for free now-a-days?
Particularly useful, to me, in this list is the free online courses from MIT and Apple Stores. You can’t get the degree, but knowledge is knowledge. Plus free icecream!
There’s a lot of great ways to get hold of useful items at no cost, so let’s throw some ideas around. This list is good, but I know there’s more. Maybe next week Lifehack will put together our own list.
Top of my list is Freecycle.org – worldwide freebies.
