No Strings Attached!
"Woman's Day" always has something budget-worthy in their issues (and, yes, I realize that admitting I read this magazine may tend to date me...oh well!)
In the June 1, 2008 issue, Mary Hunt identified some great websites for some great free stuff! Check these out:
This site offers silver jewelry (rings, earrings, pendants and bracelets) that are high quality and FREE! You pay only a shipping charge of
$5.99. This is their way of introducing you to their products.
Check out this site to create a free time-management organizer that allows you to produce an up-to-the-minute "to-do" list and get reminders via instant message or e-mail. Upload this to your cellphone and you'll get updates on the go!
Most of the features are free, though if you opt for a $25/year subscription, you can also access additional premium features (and no, I don't really know what those are!)
Free spam filtering for your e-mail...check it out!
Go here to get a free online family calendar, complete with address book and message board. As with the "rememberthemilk.com" site, it's fre, but you can upgrade to their "Plus" version for an additional $10/month (I would be the only one in the family ever checking it - not sure that is worth $120/year! :)
Get free classical music downloads of sheet music. Over 1,000 piecese are available and, while higher quality copies are sold here, there is no pressure to buy!
This is a very cool site! Create your own personal radio service. You type in an artist and the service plays songs by that artist and others with similar styles. There is no downloading allowed, but you can always listen to and change your own "stations". This one I've actually seen in "action" as my daughter has used it a lot.
