I LOVE FREE!!! Did you know there are TONS of things you can get for free? I don’t mean very discounted, I mean free! And I don’t mean crap, good stuff. Don’t believe me? Everything – EVERYTHING in the picture below I got for FREE in one week! I am serious. I also got a lot of things (not pictured) seriously discounted, we are only talking about free here!
