Five Free Frugal Resources

When you’re trying to be frugal getting something for free is a big help. Here are some great free resources that won’t cost you a dime.

  1. The Public Library- You can get books free here and also music and movies. My local library charges a dollar for movies but the books are still a good deal.
  2. 1-800-Free-411- I just recently found about this.  I just avoided using directory assistance before but now take advantage of this free deal. You just have to listen to a short advertisement before you get your information.
  3. Mint,GnuCash,PearBudget,etc.- There is lots of free money management software out there. I use PearBudget right now since my finances are pretty simple. I’m thinking of upgrading to more detailed software though.
  4.,,,etc.- These are sites where you can legally watch TV shows and movies at your own convenience online. With these sites you really don’t need cable.
  5. At this site you can take language lessons online for free. There are many other free language learning sites out there.  I haven’t tried these yet but learning a foreign language is on my list of things to do someday.

Those are just a few of the free frugal resources available. There are lots of things you can do for free.

  1. Number 1 is my favorite. Getting absolutely taken away by an amazing book is an awesome way to enjoy yourself for free. The library I use doesn’t have many movies at all, but there’s always RedBox for $1.

    I’d add to the list. Free online streaming radio based on your interests. You’ll find a lot of new music as well. It’s neat.

    I’ve got to be careful of Hulu; it’s easy to let a couple of hours slip by while watching Family Guy. 😀

  2. I agree, #1 is my favorite!!

    I would add 800-411-SAVE to number two. I found out about it a few weeks ago and like you, I now use directory assitance. I like this free service the best becuase there are no machines to talk to, just people.

    I never knew about the free TV options but I don’t have much use for online TV since I don’t watch it much to keep up with a series anyways.

    Number 5 sounds awesome, I’ve always wanted to learn another language!
