7 Things You're Paying For That You Can Get For Free

With the holiday season right around the corner, saving money is on many people’s minds. The easiest way for you to save money is to find ways to things for free that you’re currently paying for. 

 

Here are a few things that you might be paying for that you can find for free.

 

Furniture

 

Use your local Facebook Marketplace page to find household items that people are giving away for free. Even though Craigslist has a free-stuff section, I prefer Facebook because you can deal with people in your local area.

 

Depending on your financial situation, you may be able to get free appliances as well. There are government programs and charitable organizations that help with appliances.

 

Shoes

 

Many shoe companies will give you free shoes in exchange for your feedback after you test the product.

 Here's how it works.

 A lot of companies have a testing department that sends out products to a group of consumers to get information that can help them improve their product.

 

Food

 

It’s no secret that eating out takes a big bite out of your wallet. Fortunately, many places offer free food for signing up for their mailing list or downloading an app.

 

In return for your signup, restaurants reward you with free food. In addition to the free stuff you get for signing up, you can also land some free food on your birthday.

 

Music

 

All you need is an internet connection to listen to any music you want on Spotify for free. Yes, the free version makes you listen to ads, but the platform gives you a wide range of music to pick from.

 

Also, YouTube Music boasts a big list of tunes that are available for free listening.

 

Pet Care

 

Many organizations and rescue groups offer free or affordable vet care, such as vaccines, spaying, and neutering.

 

To find local animal groups in your area, check out Petfinder.com's list or Google ”affordable vet near me.” The ASPCA also has a list of low-cost programs that can help.

 

Entertainment 

 

Check out your local library to find free entertainment resources besides books. A library card gives you access to things like movies, music, games, audiobooks, and more. Visit your library to learn more.

 

TV

 

You can still get free TV, even though the channels are digital, and the reception is outstanding.

 

A $10 antenna can give you at least a handful of channels to watch for free.
