The Art of Getting Free Stuff

laptop

There is a world out there I never knew existed; a place where free products are given away by the minute.   I was unaware of this magical land until I became a blogger and a follower of other blogs myself.  Now that I know the secret, I had to share it with you.

The best part about these giveaways is that you don’t have to work very hard for them.  And the items that are given away are well worth the little effort you do put in.  Recently I have seen giveaways for jewellery, salon grade flat irons and children’s toys to name just a few. 

There are women that make careers out of contest entries.  And can you blame them?  We all know the best things in life are free!  Women are saving money left, right and centre.  From grocery vouchers to cleaning products, it’s all there for the taking and who doesn’t love free stuff?

Keep in mind; you don’t have to be a mom or a blogger to enter any of these contests.  Browse the list below and you’ll see what I mean.

HOW TO GET STARTED

First, the two basic things you’ll need to have are a Facebook account and a Twitter account.  Both are super easy to create and don’t take a lot of work to maintain. 

I suggest these two because most contests require you to ‘Like’ a page on Facebook and/or follow a vendor on Twitter.  Extra entries often include tweeting a phrase about the contest on your own profile.

Next I recommend creating a Google account. This will come in handy for a couple of reasons.

  1.  Extra entries often include following on Google Friend Connect which is as easy as a couple of clicks, and
  2. With iGoogle and Google Reader, you can easily keep track of the blogs that you choose to follow.

Now you’re ready to start following some blogs.  I have put together a quick list of some of the blogs I like for giveaways.  This is only a short list; like I said, there’s an entire world out there of sites like this.
