My cheap confession

I order freebies throughout the year.  Near Christmas I'll go through them to make goody bag gifts for family members, so I don't have to buy for anyone.  I buy my children gifts, and my SO.  Sometimes I will buy my siblings if I can't put together an adequate goody bag..

I look through freebie sites daily, and always have something coming in.  Some people know I do this, and some people don't.  I still take a fair amount of time to look through things that I think family members will like, I just don't spend any money.

I also ask anyone who may buy a present for me to get household items as gifts.  Big things of toilet paper, garbage bags, toiletries, anything along those lines.  Not because we have issues affording them, but because it's less money I have to spend that month.

What are these Freebies you're going on about?

There's free stuff on the internet?

Quite a bit.  You just have to have the patience to fill out a bunch of surveys, and wade though the bullshit ones.  A lot of the time there sample size things (which I use for myself), and sometimes you'll get lucky and find full-sized, which I save for the goody bags.

If this was a sarcastic question, I am sorry.  I have had about half a pot of coffee and can't comprehend much rigtht now.
