Freebies Delivered To Your Door

How To Get Free Stuff Delivered Direct To Your Door

Free is really my favourite price, and it's only better when it's delivered direct to my door. Even in these days of austerity you can still get an extra piece of post or two each week.



Long Term Freebies

These are made up of two basic categories: 'try before you buy' samples and ongoing campaigns. The backbone of that first category are DIY products - wallpaper, flooring, fabric swatches. The industry expectation is that you'll be able to request free samples to make a decision on, and most companies will send out swatches free of charge.

The best way to find them, in my experience, is just to google something like 'free wallpaper sample UK'. Not only have these kind of samples helped me decide on colour schemes and fittings, they've also provided excellent scrapbooking paper, tile coasters, and the means to upholster entire sets of doll house furniture. Some ideas of what to search for include:

(Click on the links for pre-curated lists!)

★ Carpet + Artificial Grass 
★ Fabric
★ Material (plastic, glass, rubberwood, metal - it'll bring up all sorts)
★ Paper, Printed Items, and Stationery
★ Tiles
★ Wallpaper

The second category can be harder to find as they're aimed at fairly narrow audiences. Examples might include children's club magazines, new baby packs (Bounty), promo pens and stickers, etc.

Short Term Freebies

These are limited offer samples, typically designed to raise awareness or promote a new product. Examples I've had recently include tea bags, perfume samples, dog food, canvas tote bags, and more.

The best way to keep up to date with new offers is to follow freebie sites like Magic FreebiesWow Free Stuff, and the Money Saving Expert freebie forum. My personal favourite is Latest Deals; not only does it have a steady stream of offers and freebies, you can also build up points through engagement for a free Amazon voucher.



Free Trials and Subscription Boxes

The best way to find free trials is, like with the short term freebies, to check out the freebie sites as the offers tend to be fairly short lived. Just remember to cancel your subscription as soon as your freebie arrives, or you could end up with a hefty charge for a monthly service.

Another option is to look for companies with good refer and earn offers. Just referring one or two people is often enough for you to be able to claim a freebie. Just this week I had a free Japan Candy Box thanks to people using my referral link to get money off their orders; win-win, huh. :)

Competitions

Not a guaranteed way of bagging yourself some post, true, but if you have some spare time you can get a good return on it. Check out my guide to comping for more info.

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
