I have tapped into the world of free-ness. Not buy-one-get-one-free, or deeply discountedly cheap, but really free stuff and on rare occasions, after rebates, have ended up with more money than before I started buying the stuff.
I shall warn you; to do it successfully, it requires:
- a bit of time
- organization / attention to detail
- Internet access
- convenient proximity to national chain stores
I'll blog tomorrow on just how I accomplish this.
In addition to free products, In the last 24 hours, I rented two just-released DVDs for an average of 54 cents each. Reader warning, a rabbit trail follows:
Yes, in my ADHD-saddled manner, I am actually half-way through "Quantum of Solace" as I write this. My MacBook Pro has only a 15" screen, but there is enough room to blog via the Firefox browser and still view the film in another corner of my screen. At this moment, James Bond is knocking on the door of a villa in stunning Talamone, Italy.
So, clinging to the excuse of my need to heal a severe sore throat and laryngitis, I sponsored a personal two-day Nurse Myself To Health Movie Festival and watched "Paris, Je T'Aime" last night, followed by James Bond tonight.
Yes, anyone, anywhere can rent a movie from Redbox, free every Monday; just sign up and get the passcode. I rented the movie for tonight at the regular fee of $1.00 plus 8 cents tax.
Living large on pennies over here, folks! (Just got to remember to return that bad boy tomorrow.)
