Tutorial Tuesday: Maximizing your Bzzagent Potential

More than one of you have come to me telling me that you don't really understand how to get started as a bzzagent. Today I am here to help you!

The first step is to go to bzzagent.com and join! This part is the most simple, although time consuming. Bzzagent has plenty of questionnaires to keep you busy while all the while tailoring campaigns just for you! Once you are set up, the fun can begin.

Every month, a bzzagent is required to do 3 frogs and 10 bzzcapes to increase his or her honeycomb status. Did I just speak Greek? Let me break it down for you...

While at bzzagent.com click on the frogpond link. You will be directed to a series on interesting websites some are marked with a little bug and the words "agent submitted". While the agent submitted frogs are interesting and should be checked out, they will NOT increase your honeycomb status. I unfortunately learned this one the hard way. The first couple frogs are the non-agent submitted frogs and are the ones you must visit to earn honeycombs. Not only do you have to visit them, but most importantly TAKE THE POLL!! The visit does not count unless you take the poll!

Once you complete three frogs in a calendar month, its time to move onto Bzzcapes. I LOVE bzzcapes. They are reviews made by other agents on virtually everything. I have come to consult bzzcapes before any major purchase. Completing your own bzzcapes is super easy and fun! Did you try a new product that you loved? Hated? This is content for bzzcapes! Did you go somewhere new? Try a new restaurant? All of this is perfect for bzzcape content! Do ten of these per month and increase your honeycomb status!

Why do you want to increase your honeycomb status? Because it gets you more and earlier campaign invites and also earns you something wonderful called a golden key! Golden Keys are used when you really want a campaign but it is already closed! YOU WANT GOLDEN KEYS!

Bzzagent also requires the completion of surveys. Check back at your bzzagent at least once a week and you will be prompted if new surveys are ready for you to take. These surveys are very short and are used to see if you have an established interest in a product before a campaign is announced. You are rewarded with mypoints for taking the surveys!

Speaking of mypoints! You MUST MUST MUST have a mypoints account if you do bzzagent! If you have questions on setting up a mypoints account, I will offer a tutorial tuesday post at your request!

OK, so you are signed up and up to date, now come the campaign invites over e-mail. When you get one, respond quickly, they fill up fast! Complete the step by step instructions to get your bzzkit sent to you. Then start bzzing!

Remember these are word of mouth campaigns, so the more you talk the better. I actually got a golden key once for talking too much! :) More importantly, every single time you mention the product, submit a bzzreport, they are worth 30-17 mypoints each and you can submit AS MANY AS YOU WANT! This can be very lucrative towards earning free stuff!

Don't forget to take your post campaign survey (also worth mypoints) and get involved as much as possible!

I hope this helps, please feel free to ask me any questions!

Be blessed! :)

OK, the title for this blog may be a bit misleading, but not REALLY!

I have been conducting an experiment for ways to seriously increase the mileage I get on my mommy-mobile (that's right, folks, my minivan). For those of you that know me, you know that I commute from Sperry to Bartlesville every single workday! I really thought I had tried about everything but about two weeks ago, I stumbled onto something that WORKS and is FREE!

As all of you know, you have an RPM reader thingy on your dash (Yes, I know NOTHING about cars, leave me alone, LOL!). By NEVER allowing my RPM to go above 2 I have saved an insane amount of gas. I will get to the actual amount later.

What does this change for you?

1. Slower acceleration, period. Whether you are starting up from a red light or a stop sign or getting onto the highway, you have to accelerate slowwwwwwly. Watch your RPM! Yes, you will annoy people. You will get honked out. You will get "the finger" (my personal favorite, always makes me giggle!), but you are going to save money!

2. Slower highway driving and cruise control (if you have it). I max out at about 65 mph and still have my RPM under 2 when I use my cruise. Its not that bad, and if you don't have a few extra minutes to get somewhere, just plan it better!

OK, are you ready for the numbers???

Prior to my 2 RPM rule, I was getting 19.2 miles per gallon with my mommy ride. After I am getting 24.1!!

Let's do dome math...
That's 4.9 miles per gallon of gas. It usually costs me $42 to fill up my tank twice a week. At about 2.60 per gallon, my car holds about 16 gallons of gas. I am getting 78.4 extra miles per tank!

How much money am I saving?? I am not a math person, so please help me with the math if you are!! :)

Be blessed as always! The Freebie Junkie :)

Why it pays to shop off season...

Perhaps you are already like me--scanning the end-of-summer clearance for next summer and Christmas gifts? If you aren't, here is why you need to get out and shop RIGHT NOW!

This past weekend, I shopped at Sears & JC Penney only...

I bought 4 pairs of jeans for Aaron, my husband, keep in mind he is Big and Tall which always costs more, and 2 pairs of Dockers, $1.99 each!!!

I bought myself two sundresses for next summer (those of you who know me, kno w that I HATE jeans and live in little dresses). $4.99 each!

I did a bunch of Christmas shopping (sorry, cannot list items or prices here, some of you actually bother to read this! LOL!) Let's just say very very CHEAP!

I decided to total up my purchases and subtract them from the original prices, and I saved a grand total of....


It pays to shop off season people! Not to mention I am now done Christmas shopping!

SIDEBAR--This year Aaron and I have told everyone we are buying for children only. We are saving a fortune! We don't need anything, so we don't want gifts either, just time with our friends and family! :) Could this work for your family??

Be blessed!

No Dining Out Challenge Week 1

How's everyone doing?? Please post a comment here or on Facebook and let me know what you have put into your account this week!

I am proud to say that after returning from Kansas City (AWESOME trip by the way!), we haven't eaten out once! Yay! I am determined to keep it going! Something I am doing to ease the transition...

Inviting friends over for dinner and games. For me, going out to dinner isn't because I hate to cook or even for convenience. For me, its all about socialization. Has anyone else noticed that's what people ALWAYS do when they get together? I am working on new things to do with friends so that my need is met. I don't do well with deprivation.

So $30 into my Disney account for not going out this week! How did you do??

Ebaying to Disney Week 3

This week was a slow week, my fault for being out of town on Saturday morning so I couldn't garage sale and replenish my inventory!

Total saved for Disney-175.02

I am REALLY going out Saturday morning to get some inventory, so hopefully will be getting that number back up!

Be blessed!

No Dining Out Challenge!

AS my loyal followers know, I use my Discover Card for everything, pay the balance every month and get FREEBIES! Another neat feature of Discover is the spend analyzer. As I was analyzing my spending, I saw some definite room for improvement. Last year alone, I spent $1687 ($85 so far in August alone) eating out!

So, like my friends at Couponing to Disney (www.couponingtodisney.com), I am compelled to begin my own dining out challenge, starting this Monday (one mroe freebie weekend for those of you that care to join me, these are the rules....

1. Special Occasions are allowed (birthdays, mothers day, etc.). Quite frankly because I am not cooking on my birthday! :)

2. Awesome deals are also permissable! Let's say you just scored a BOGO coupon for your favorite restaurant. Being the money saving junkie that I am, I would never deprive you of getting a sweet deal.

3. We calculate what we save and put it into our Disney (or Paris, or new car, or remodeling) fund!

Who's in with me?
Be blessed and have a wonderful weekend!

Ebaying to Disney-Week 2

Just an update!

I invested $6 this week on shipping supplies.

My total sales are $166, for a profit $160!!!!

How exciting!

My best seller this week is a Purple People Eater toy, still in bidding but up to $41!!

I am planning on going out for more inventory tomorrow!

Some tips for those of you hitting the sales this weekend!

1. Dishes don't sell worth poop!
2. Ask yourself, is this going to be a total pain to ship?
3. Silver pieces sell extremely well!
4. Look for the unique!

Be blessed! The Freebie Junkie :)

Ebaying to Disney-1 week update

First let me start off by saying that this went WAY BETTER than I anticipated.

Every item I listed was listed free, so it was a seven day listing, at the end of seven days, after everything shipped and completed, I made a profit of....


At this rate, I can save for Disney and then also my Adventures by Disney trip to Europe!

The best sellers by far are the silver pieces. So, if you will be hitting the garage sales with me this weekend, that should be your primo target, also anything unusual that looks old!

Sound too easy? IT IS!

Please let me know if you are trying it so we can share our success!

Be blessed! :)

Ebaying to Disney-What sells, so far....

Hello readers!

I have begun my campaign to Disney via re-selling items on Ebay. So far, I have an investment of zero (Everything I have listed so far was given to me!) and already ahve a few items being bid on! To see a list of my items, visit here....


I am discovering that silver pieces get interest, as well as anything unique or signed.

This is week one, and I have listed 23 items! I will let you know how much I make this week, and also what sells at the best prices!

Is anyone else going to try to do this, please link up your blog! :)

Disney for free!

Hello, loyal readers!

Ok, so you all read as I earned myself a free dishwasher, are you ready for my next expedition? Its time for a FREE TRIP TO DISNEY WORLD! You may ask how I am hoping to accomplish this, and I have decided to try something I have not tried before, garage sale-ing and the re-selling for a profit, my plan is put all this profit into a free trip to Disney World for my family.

Essentially, any time I see something that looks old (and NOT made in China), I am going to scoop it up and then re-sell it with the antique dealer I have be-friended (very easy to do, guys, go to your local antique dealer and ask them how they do it and if they will help you!). For those of you who have not garage saled with me, I am a nefarious bargainer, I NEVER pay the asking price, and neither should you! Remember this fact--PEOPLE HAVE GARAGE SALES TO GET RID OF STUFF NOT TAKE IT BACK INSIDE!

I will be sharing my progress with you, showing you the items I have found, what I have paid and what the re-sale value is! I am very excited about this latest venture!

Be blessed as always!

I would love to say that I am a frequent DIY-er, but truth be told I am the mother of an almost 3 year old, and 99% of the time DIY is not an option. That being said, I have stumbled upon an amazing blog that I just have to share...


I suddenly feel the overwhelming urge to redecorate! Not just redecorate, but redecorate with thriftiness! I HATE my game/dining room table. I have one of those tables that converts from bumper pool-to card table-to dinette, and I hate it because I bought it with my ex (anyone want it?? I will entertain any reasonable offer!).

How neat would it be to have furniture pieces that are one of a kind! I may just try my hand at this! Anyone want to help???

I will share pictures!
Be blessed!

A sidenote. Please pray for a good friend of mine. She is currently dealing with the unimaginable. Most of you are aware that I am a Christian and will always pray for my readers! All my love!

A free blu ray DVD player or something even better....

I am sure most of you are familiar with Nielsen. I got started with doing the traditional television ratings (they pay cash and nothing you watch will get canceled!), but have since learned about Homescan.


By joining Nielsen Homescan, you enjoy limitless benefits (you can be a member for life!) by simply scanning the items you purchase with a scanner provided to you. Every time you upload your purchases online, you are rewarded with points redeemable for almost anything...

Designer Bags

We are currently working towards the Samsung Blu Ray player, absolutely free! After that, who knows?!?

Be blessed and keep scoring those freebies!

Too awesome not too share!

Hey, guys! I just found out that I am getting two months of free diapers plus cash to tell them what I think of each brand! SO AWESOME! I am thinking that Carina will be potty trained by then and that I have just bought my last diaper!!

Interested in free diapers for your child? Let me know and I will get referral information to you!

Be blessed!
The Freebie Junkie :)

Home Furnishings for less or free!

On my continued quest for the best websites, let's talk furniture! You guys already know I am a huge fan of freecycle! But what else...

Craigslist! Craigslist rocks! Although play it safe guys! Don't go anywhere alone and never wire money or do anything that seems shady! Craigslist also advertises garage sales of which you know I am also a fan.

SIDENOTE: Kicked off my garage sale Christmas shopping last weekend and finished my niece and my daughter for $10!! A bunch of stuff I got was brand new (Chutes and Ladders and Guess Who? still wrapped in cellophane!)

nobetterdeal.com is another awesome one, where literally you can find anything for the best possible price. For example, lets say I am looking for a pink rocking chair. I type "pink rocking chair" into the query and it will tell me who has what at the best possible deals!

estatesale.net Ok, I am personally not an estate sale fan, I read that and interpret "overprices garage sale". However, I know a lot of avid cheapskates who LIVE for them. Estatesale.net provides the listings in your area. Perfect if you are into the antiques and extraordinary finds!

Finally and certainly not least, THRIFT STORES! I found my gaming/pool table (you know those three in ones) insanely cheap at Salvation Army and it is as good as new, even has all the balls! You can always find those one of a kind pieces and, if you have an eye for it, make your home look amazing!

Awesome Websites

Hi, all!

So I decided that I am going to devote this weeks to some awesome websites! Today's website recommendations are all about coupons and discounts!

My number one all-time favorite discount source is

NEVER shop online without it! It gives you coupon and promo codes and even allows you to piggy back them (use more than one at a time). Completely awesome resource!

Some other cool sites include:

couponmom.com-this is a neat site that offers printable coupons for virtually anything, as well as coupon codes and sales information.

ebates.com-this site tells you about ongoing promotions and even offers rewards for clicking through them, you even get a $10 gift card just for registering! I got one for Home Depot!

flit.com-this website will tell you which store has the current lowest prices for anything!

groupon.com-this website emails you one amazing discount per day! Some of these have just blown me away. My fave so far was a weekend at a local bed and breakfast for $20! You just can't beat that!

livingsocial.com-this website is very similar to groupon, but not available in Tulsa yet! However, I have been personally promised that it is COMING SOON!

redplum.com & smartsource.com-printable grocery coupons galore! Remember to pair these up with your weekly ads and double coupon events and voila! You are saving a fortune on groceries!

restaurant.com--unbelievable discounts on local restaurants in your area! If you live in Tulsa, some yummy places include The White Owl and Kilkenney's!

Christmas Secrets You NEED to know today!

I will never forget the first evening I ever drove to Carol's house. She lived in one of the most expensive areas in Tulsa (for those of you that live here, near 61st and Yale, that neighborhood around the pond, yeah, you know which one!), and I thought, great, she is NEVER coming to my house! I followed the directions and parked in front a mansion, yes a mansion, not just a big house. I rang the bell and was greeted warmly, as I have always been by Carol. She is a wonderful woman and I just adore her.

She offered me a tour, and I was mesmerized by the decor! Her house was INCREDIBLE! After raving for a little while, she winked at me and said, "Can you keep a secret?" I said, "Yes." And she confided...

Everything in this house was bought at GARAGE SALES!!

Essentially, the old wives' tale is true, rich people get rich by BEING CHEAP!

I was all ears to hear her secrets!! She then proceeded to share with me her family's Christmas tradition. These are the rules!

1. You cannot buy anything new!! Everything else is fair game--garage sales, handmade items, ebay, antique shops, swap meets, flea markets, even making a memory for a person, as long as the item is not new!

2. Start looking early and you WILL find the perfect gift. Right now is peak garage sale season, so start your list and get out there!

3. Tell everyone you shop for your plan and invite them to join the fun. Otherwise you will come off as the cheapskate friend or family member! Besides its just more fun when everyone does it! You will never believe what people come up with!

I was really skeptical, but thought what the heck? I can try it for one year. I started calling friends and family members. I will tell you this, I had people think it was ridiculous and wouldn't participate, so I just told them we wouldn't exchange gifts that year (more money saved!) I had other people who thought it sounded like fun, and even more people who were just up for saving money!

I started my hunt this time last year. And you wouldn't believe my finds!

1. For my sister-in-law obsessed with Disney, an antique wind up Mickey Watch in mint condition-$1

2. For my niece, who truly wishes she was a princess-a trunk of dress up clothes and the learn to skate roller skates that she had been wanting-FREE!! The lady at the garage sale gave them to me because they were too hot and wanted to stop for the day!

3. For my mother-in-law, one of those beautiful fabric photo albums filled with pictures of her grandaughters-10 cents

4. Coach Bag for my mom (looked authentic to me!!)-$10

My daughter had so many presents under the tree that we had to open them in phases because she got bored!

I maybe spent $50 tops on Christmas last year!

So tomorrow marks my kick off for Christmas shopping season! If you care to join me, please share the deals you score! Also, if you are a personal friend, want to join me??

Be blessed!

The Art of Couponing

Did you know that oftentimes clipping coupons can make groceries super cheap and frequently free?!?

I am personally a big fan of coupon clipping! Trust me on this the satisfaction is worth the time!

A few tips for the new coupon-er!

1. Organization is essential!! Invest in a coupon file! It will save you so much stress. I find it easiest to sort alphabetically by brand, but I think everyone finds a system that works best for them.

2. DOUBLE COUPONS ROCK! Homeland and Price Chopper always double coupons up to $1. I can't tell you how often I have scored free or nearly free by taking advantage of this. Harps and K-Mart also offer double coupon events. The K-Mart one is awesome because it doubles up to $2 coupons!

3. MATCH-MATCH-MATCH. Compare your coupons with the weekly ads to find the best deals. Don't have the patience for this. The Coupon Queen will do it for you! You can friend her on facebook or follow her on twitter! She also offers Couponing 101 classes for a small, but very worthwhile fee!

4. Online coupons are also awesome! Write down all the brand names you buy and search. Can't find any then e-mail the company! Seriously, they will give you awesome coupons! Mass printable coupons are also available at www.mypoints.com (yes, you get mypoints when you redeem them!) and www.coupons.com. I am sure other coupon sites exist but these are my favorites!

5. Don't stop there! Coupons are available for nearly everything these days! Search online before you go out to eat, to the movies, to the park, or just about anywhere!

I am always here to help you get started! Drop me a message and we will work out a time to get together. I am also thinking about teaching a class this fall at The Refuge. If I did, it would be free. Would you be interested in attending?

As always, be blessed! :)

Calling all Pop Drinkers!

Its time to switch allegiance to Coke products, my friends! Why? Because of My Coke Rewards!! All you have to do is register at www.mycokerewards.com and then enter the codes from any Coke products you buy (including Sprite, Fanta, Dasani, Minute Maid, Powerade, Vault, Barq's, Fresca, Mr Pibb, and Mello Yello) and then redeem the points for awesome stuff.

Case in Point, this year alone, Aaron and I went and saw movies for free and most recently scored two free tickets to Six Flags (although since its so hot, we are going to wait until September to go).

Points are good for eating out, rental cars, amusemant parks (namely Six Flags and Silver Dollar City), merchandise and gift cards galore! :)

The Art of Freecycle

Freecycle. Are you familiar? It is absolutely awesome. It is essentially a forum where people can trade items they no longer need for items they do need. So far on Freecycle I have scored...

1. An absolutely brand new microwave (The people were remodeling their house and ordered the wrong size! SCORE!)

2. A functioning garage door opener to replace mine that unexpectedly croaked on me.

3. A HUGE box of VHS tapes for Beanie's playroom (every single Disney movie and many many more, I filled an entire bookcase!)

I am fairly certain most towns and cities have a freecycle. To find yours go to Yahoo Groups and search for freecycle in your city! Please share your amazing finds, because things like that put a huge smile on my face!

Be blessed!

OK, guys, we are here the last day of our free dishwasher. And it is the art of swagging, so let's get our swag on!

1. We need a coupon for our dishwasher, so let's swag for one! I was able to find 10% off by searching through swagbucks.

2. Swagbucks are redeemable for Lowe's gift cards!!

Does it seem like it takes forever for those swagbucks to accumulate? Here are some tips for some better swagging!

1. NETWORK, NETWORK, NETWORK. Refer your friends! Everyone online googles! Did you know that Swagbucks actually uses Google, so you are getting the same results and earning free stuff! Why WOULDN'T you swag?? Every time a friend signs up, you get SB! Simple!

2. Shop online as much as you can! I will tell you this... You can find almost anything cheaper online, especially when you visit retailmenot.com and start stacking those coupon codes. The internet is still a wild frontier, take advantage of it. Not too mention that you get to stick it to THE MAN and not pay sales tax a lot of the time!

3. Friday is Mega Swagbucks Day, SEARCH SEARCH SEARCH! I know I will be! :)

Be blessed, The Freebie Junkie :)

Free Dishwasher Day 2

OK, I KNOW this is going to be the most controversial day of the free dishwasher plan, so let's get it out of the way...

Discover Card Cashback Program.

Its amazing! Every quarter they offer 5% in a particular genre (right now its restuarants) and for everything else you get 1% cash back. I put all my bills on mine and most importantly


I do NOT advocate credit card debt in any way shape or form! But if you can charge responsibly, this is just a fabulous program! I use these rewards to Christmas and birthday present shop, and it keeps me from going over budget every time a special occasion arises.

A tip for responsible credit card use. Write down every thing you charge. It helps me tremendously to stay on budget and not be surprised (or horrified) when I get my credit card statement each month.

I redeemed $45 in rewards for a $50 Lowes gift card. More money towards my absolutely free dishwasher!

Be blessed! The Freebie Junkie :)

Maximizing your Bzzagent potential (Day 1, continued)

Since I received a lot of questions on using Bzzagent and it is IMPERATIVE to racking up your MyPoints, I decided to dedicate today's blog to getting the most out of Bzzagent.

1. Complete your surveys! You will not get picked for campaigns unless you are up-to-date on your surveys. CHECK DAILY! Go to bzzagent.com and click on my bzzagent. It will tell you if you have any surveys to take! SIMPLE.

2. You are required three frogs per month. These are simple. Go to the frogpond. Click on any frog THAT IS NOT AGENT SUBMITTED. Check out the website, give your opinion and take the poll. I may also add here that these websites are often AWESOME! I have found some neat present ideas, freebies and coupons from the Bzzagent Frogpond.

3. You are required to do 10 Bzzcapes per month. These are also simple. They can be product reviews, special offers to share, or even launch a new product on your own Bzzcape! The even have Bzzcapes for music, movies and shows if you want to give your opinion! Bzzcapes are awesome because they give you a chance to look up what other people are saying about a product before you try it!

Keeping on these three things will not only get you campaigns, but it also earns you honeycombs and golden keys. Why do you want these? Honeycombs increases your status and gives you earlier invites to campaigns! Golden keys are even better! They can get you into a full campaign that you weren't chosen for!

After you are selected for a campaign, bzz, bzz, bzz. Every time you talk about the product, hand out a coupon or sample, report it to bzzagent. At 50 mypoints a pop, this adds up quickly. On my latest campaign I already earned 750 mypoints!

Good luck, bzzagents! If you need help or you want a referral, please let me know!

Be blessed, the Freebie Junkie :)

Working your MyPoints! (Dishwasher Day 1)

OK, guys, today is day one towards your brand new dishwasher...

This is my dishwasher...


Now we are going to pay for it? The first $50 came as a gift card from my mypoints. You may be asking yourself how I accrued so much, so today's lesson is working your mypoints!

1. WORK THE NETWORK Essentially, work together. Let me refer you, and then refer your friends, even if those friends will only ever accrue points by shopping online. You will not believe how quickly the points tally when you simply work together! :)

2. Read the e-mails and visit the sites! It takes two seconds and those points add up quickly! Do the surveys as well. They are worth 50 points a pop and only take a few minutes out of your day.

3. Daily Spin and Win Once again, it only takes a minute to spin the wheel everyday and instantly win up to 10,000 points!

4. Become a bzzagent. Bzzagent is awesome by itself, but paired up with Mypoints it is better than peanut butter and chocolate (which says a lot coming from me!)

I will provide an illustration. I am currently bzz-ing about Cover Girl Cosmetics. I love my new SmokyBlast shadow and Colorblast lipgloss. Anytime I talk about it, blog about it, twitter about it, etc. I get 50 free mypoints! How easy peasy is that?!?! Guess what? I just got 50 more! :)

5. Shop online when you can! Hate to pay shipping and handling? Visit retailmenot.com for an amazing assortment of coupon codes. I really don't know the last time I paid shipping. Retailmenot.com also offers combination coupons, so you can also get discounts.

Another illustration! I REALLY wanted Skecher tone-ups (they are like shape ups only flip flop variety). I went to Kohls.com


They were 54.99 on sale for 44.99. After visiting retailmenot.com, I got them for 21.00! :) By the way, I love them! They are comfy, and the other night I was getting a massage from my hot husband and he commented that my thighs were getting really hard! WOOHOO!

So, mypoints rewards you for online purchases. I got them uber cheap and earned 42 mypoints!

Mypoints are redeemable for Lowes gift cards so I have now obtained the first $50 for my brand new dishwasher. $169 to go!

Be blessed! The Freebie Junkie :)

Who is the freebie junkie??

Per your request...

Howdy! My name is Chrissy. I am married to Aaron, and Carina (Beanie) is our precocious daughter! I was born and raised in Pennsylvania and now live just outside of Tulsa, OK.

Becoming a married mommy made me realize that changes needed to be made to my lifestyle. I am a confirmed, diagnosed shopaholic. Once I made the pilgrimage to the Mall of America 3 times in just one year. I am talking that I drove all night (its a ten hour drive from Tulsa, the Hawaii of the Midwest), so that I could be there when the mall opened, get all my shopping in and not miss work. I think this may be considered a problem, but honestly, it was my version of fun!

Upon becoming a mother, being unable to shop and travel the way I used to depressed me, quite literally... I missed my "mall tours" in which I would drive to a new city just to see the malls.

I cannot say honestly when I transitioned to just not paying for anything, but it has not only saved my sanity and my pocketbook, its also fun and a challenge! :) Not to mention, equally addicting. Lately, a lot of interest has surfaced for coupon-ing and matching up ads. I am truly a fan, but I am a much bigger fan of ABSOLUTELY FREE.

I hope you enjoy this blog and also share with me things that you discover! As always be blessed. The Freebie Junkie. :)

PS... Tomorrow, per an OVERWHELMING request, we will begin earning our free dishwasher. I already did it, but I will show you how its done! :)

Today's Lesson-The Internet

For those of you that haven't already discovered this... The internet is a wealth of freebies! From samples (www.startsampling.com) to test marketing (www.bzzagent.com), you can get so much for free that I wonder why ANYONE pays!

Some of my favorites include...


I am currently test-marketing the Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner and Cover Girl Cosmetics. Yes, I got these things for free! BTW, I LOVE the automatic shower cleaner! I have had it now for a month, and haven't had to scrub ONCE! Heaven for a mommy of a toddler! As for the Cover Girl, I have been a fan for as long as I can remember, no surprises there! :)


This one is cool! A new product is coming out... These people send you a huge box of not only samples of the product, but also additional freebies like t-shirts, back packs, movies, aprons, games, toys, just to name a few. Sometimes we even get to preview tv shows that aren't even on tv yet! :) Super fun!


First of all, if you are a bzzagent, you NEED mypoints, its how they "pay" you! If you shop online you need this, plain and simple. You accrue mypoints for shopping online and reading e-mails. Mypoints are redeemable for gift cards, making your freebies almost anything yo can imagine. :)


Do you google? Well, stop it! Swag instead! Every time you research ANYTHING you have a chance to win swagbucks. Swagbucks are redeemable for cards, once again making your freebies virtually ANYTHING! :)

Enjoy todays ideas and always be blessed! The freebie Junkie

My name is Chrissy...

... and I am a freebie-holic! I am obsessed with not paying for things! :)

Lately I have been getting asked how I do it....

Case in point... My garage door opener broke about a month ago. My mom said to buy a new one and I told her to give me time. Yes, I got a free one.

My dishwasher met a similar demise, and I am proud to say that I am headed to Lowe's this weekend to get a new one ABSOLUTELY FREE including delivery and removal of the broken one!

I pledge to you, my loyal followers that are yet to exist, I will share my secrets. Many you will already know, but hopefully, I will enlighten you! :)

In the meantime be blessed! As always, the freebie junkie! :)
