I'm a mom of 3 children ages 7, 5, and 4. We're on a one income budget, and I'm always looking for free creative things to do for fun. My 4 yr old is on the autistic spectrum and has medical probs., so we do get to participate in the Starlight Starbright Foundation (provide free tickets, free dinners, etc. for families to enjoy and relieve some of the stress of chronic medical/developmental/etc. probs). That's a great program for those of you who fit their criteria. My kids and I get a kick out of ordering free samples, getting them in the mail, and then trying them out. To get a sample, I don't like to complete surveys of participate in "offers" (where I have to make a purchase or committment), so I LOVE fast, hassle-free freebie sites. My favorite sites for freebies are www.shop4freebies.com www.afreebieempire.com http://id.chilleddreames.com/freebies/ www.yesall4free.com I also LOVE Winzy. I won a $5 gift certificate to Amazon.com for using their search engine. If you someone signs up under you, when they win a prize, you win the same prize! Very cool, painless way to win free stuff. If you're not already a Winzy person, feel free to check it out under my invitation link www.winzy.com/willnpatty What are your favorite free sources, ways to get fun stuff for free, etc??????

That is awesome. I will defintely check it out and sign up under you! Another website that I use is http://teenfreeway.com In all fairness, a lot of the things on there are geared toward teenaged girls, but there are some things on there that are for those same girls that babysit. I used a lot of these things, not only for myself but also got quite a few of them for help homeschooling my girls. It is really awesome and is usually updated like twice a week with really cool things. You have to kind of dig around for some of them but it is still worth it, especially when you find a little something for yourself at the same time!
