Just a few bits and pieces this Frugal Friday...things I actually did in the last week that were free or nearly free.
First, this past weekend I assembled a three-drawer dresser I got for free. Yes, free! I earned Amazon gift cards using Swagbucks and Crowdtap (see the Moneymaker tab) and paid for the dresser without a penny of my own money!
Excuse the crooked picture...I never claimed to be a photographer!! While I got this dresser for free, remember that furniture you assemble yourself is at least 40% cheaper than already assembled.
Another household project I completed this weekend was installing new aerators on my faucets. Again, completely free! How? My local gas company sent them out as free water conservation items. Five minutes and a pair of vise grips and I was done. Check with your local utility company.These are regularly offered along with low-flow showerheads. I skipped the showerhead offer as I already have one I installed that again was free, having won it on Facebook!
Now to find a free photography class....
