Morning Money Matters: 12 Fantastic Freebies, Part 2

November 25, 2008; News 12 This Morning

Who says you can't get anything for free these days?

News 12's Meredith Anderson finishes her list of 12 Fantastic Freebies.

7. Free Furniture.
Just browse craigslist.com. I found a free couch there, and some other stuff too, like toys and clothes. They're all used, and you have to pick them up yourself, but hey, it's worth a look, right?

8. Free Kids Meals.
It's expensive to take the whole family out to dinner, but here's something to help. Some places, like Denny's for example, let kids eat free with a paying adult. To find more places that offer these deals, just head to: kidseatfree.com.

9. Free Internet Service.
Even if you have broadband, it's still a good idea to have a back-up: dial-up. Netzero, for example, offers 10 hours of Internet free every month.

10. Library
Have you been to your local branch lately? It's not just books. My dad checks out books on tape there all the time. Plus, you can check out tons of movies.

11. Free Phone Calls.
You can cut your long-distance bill and chat via computer with software called Skype.

12. Free Papers.
Papers like the Metro Spirit, Skirt, and Verge are available all over town.
