I love getting stuff for free, I mean who doesn’t? I decided years ago that if I could get if for free or almost free that I would, I was tired of paying tons of money for things that I wanted or needed. I work hard for my money and I don’t like to feel like it is being wasted.
I have three dogs, two very large dogs who eat all the time and one very small dog who is very picky about what he will eat. I found that I was spending way too much money on dog food each and every week. I decided to switch to the cheapest dog food I could find and almost immediately saw a huge change in my dogs. I saw that their coats were not as shiny, they were thinner, and they were eating much more than normal. It seemed as if they were never full.
While one of my friends was over at my house I was telling him how the dogs had changed. He said he had noticed the change to then asked me if I wanted him to bring me all the dog food I needed for free. You see, he said he worked at a dog food plant, this was no ordinary dog food plant this is the best. This is the plant that makes the most expensive dog foods. Of course I said yes. He began bringing me dog food and once again I saw a change in my dogs. They are much happier now and eat less but are fatter and healthier dogs.
How does this help you? When you want to save as much money as you can, you need to open your eyes to the possibilities around you. Do you know someone who works at a makeup factory? Did you know that you can get free products that they cannot sell because of a mistake in the packaging? You can do this with food also. If there is just one mistake in the packaging, companies throw the entire product out. They do not repackage it! You can get these products for free or deeply discounted if you know someone who works in that factory.
Opening your mind to the different ways that you can save money will open doors to you. I had never thought of asking my friend to bring me dog food. I also get all of my children’s books for free, because I have a friend who works in a local book factory. After I got the deal with the dog food, I asked my friend that works at the book factory about free books. They told me that they extra copies of books just in case there is something wrong with one of the copies. If they have any left, they are allowed to take them home. Each week my children get tons of new books to read. I don’t have to order them from their book orders at school because we get them for free.
So next time you are talking to your friends about what they do for a living, ask them if they can get products for free or at a discount. Most people are more than willing to get the free products for anyone who asks for them and you really have nothing to lose by asking.
