Saving Money on Monthly Expenses: Freebies!

I hope all of you enjoyed your weekend. Now, I wanted to write about how you can cut your monthly expenses by receiving freebies. Manufacturers need to get the word out on their new products. For this reason, they offer you product samples and coupons for your first purchase. This is great when you are trying to save money on your grocery bill and monthly expenses (hair products, toothpastes, personal hygiene products etc.). Since I am trying to get out of debt as quickly as possible, I decided to reduce the amount of money I spend in this category. Reducing the amount of money I spend on these things increases the amount of money I can use on paying down the debt.

How and Where Can I Find These Offers?
Almost every product you buy has a website address. This address can be found on the back or side of the product, near the customer service information. These websites are a great source of freebies, coupons and promotional offers. Before I had a computer, I would call the 1-800 numbers and ask to be put on the mailing list. This was a sure way to receive coupons in the mail!

Now that you understand a little about why, how and where to find these offers...I have compiled a list to make it easier!

Here are the freebies for this week. Don't forget to check the previous post. Most of those offers are still valid! You might want to check back often. I will be adding freebies to this page throughout the week. If you subscribe, you will get an email from bloglet once I update the blog. You can find the the email subscription form on your upper right hand side.
