FW: The Best Things in Life are Free

  • All right, since I've gotten this email twice in the last half hour, I thought I might as well post it for everyone else to enjoy. Apparently, 1-800-Free411 has made 4/11 (get it?) The Best Things In Life Are Free Day. Here's the list of fun free things from the email that people keep sending me:

    1. Directory assistance from 1-800-FREE411

    2. Blood pressure screenings at supermarkets and pharmacies

    3. Home maintenance tips and advice for do-it-yourself projects at
    free in-store clinics provided by your local Home Depot
    (www.homedepot.com)

    4. Old couches and other home furnishings found at The Freecycle
    Network (www.freecycle.org )

    5. A copy of your credit report to make sure everything is as it
    should be (www.freecreditreport.com )

    6. Books and media from your local public library
    (www.librarysites.info)

    7. A day at the museum on free admission days

    8. Online courses offered by MIT (www.ocw.mit.edu) or lessons on how to run a small business
    (www.sba.gov)
