Freebie Friday: August 15, 2008

This was an exciting week for us since we opened up our Notebook Experiments to our readers. To encourage families to work on projects together, I am going to be offering a giveaway on Thursday to anyone who completes their own Notebook Experiment on their blog next week. We will also have another giveaway running for others who don’t blog too so be watching for that!

I am also looking for some guest posts and would like to have a guest poster each Saturday. If you are interested in submitting a post on frugal living, creative/crafty parenting, or organizing, you can email your entries to me at [email protected] Please include a bio with a link to your site and (if you would like) a picture of yourself to include.

Thank you to Heather, from Freebies 4 Mom, for helping us with our list this week. Be sure to check Heather’s current list of Walmart freebies to make sure you didn’t miss anything this month! Thanks, Heather!

Freebie Tips from Our Readers:

**One of our loyal readers, Nancy, shared with us that Angie, from Baby Cheapskate, is offering free membership to her amazing Freepeats Program. Thanks for letting us know, Nancy!

“Get absolutely FREE lifetime membership in any of our 25 local Freepeats groups today (8/14) through next Wednesday (8/20). Now is the perfect time to sign up and pass on some of the gently-used toys, books, baby gear, maternity stuff, baby clothes, formula samples, baby coupons, etc. that are taking up space in your house. Posting them on Freepeats is an ever-so-green way to clear the clutter! You can pick up some great FREE baby, kid and maternity items locally through listings you find on Freepeats, too.
Freepeats groups are open in 25 major cities across the country. You’ll find a list of those cities here. If your city has a group, just click here and register. This isn’t a free trial, either. Once you join Freepeats, you’re in for as long as you like.”

**We also got another reader tip, from Monica at The Homepsun Heart, on a free scoop night at Coldstone Creamery. Thank you, Monica!!

I was just reading my newest issue of Country Living and noticed the following:

September 25 The World’s Largest Ice Cream Social – Nationwide From 5-8 p.m., visit your local Cold Stone Creamery for a free scoop. In exchange, the ice cream chain’s hoping you’ll donate to its Make-a-Wish Foundation Fundraiser;”
