Cornell University must be the place to study birds because this is the second year in a row they’ve released a free backyard bird poster. No word yet if they have a special edition poster for NYC residents. It could have a pigeon in one corner and a different color pigeon in the other!
Jenny Craig and Purina have teamed up to give away “Power of Two” packs, which include a free dog leash and pedometer. The only problem I see with this is that I now have to start exercising. Think it’ll work if I put the pedometer on my dog and let him run around the house for a bit?
Think there’s any chance I can nurture these four free growable Earth Day card/seed hybrids for at least a year? Nope, you’re right. I, kid you not, couldn’t even keep a cactus alive. Turns out they do actually need water every now and then.
The signup link is at the very bottom of the page.
A few years ago I made a post with links to physical free state maps that was well received. I decided to revisit the post recently and transfer it to it’s own page, kind of like how I did with the birthday freebies section. I’ll keep it updated regularly since I find these maps go great in glove boxes and even bug out bags for those who have them.
I was able to find free physical maps for all 50 states, though many come in yearly tourism guides. You can of course rip those out for easier storage, but I also checked with each state’s department of transportation and found free foldable maps for a decent chunk of the country. And finally I rewrote the “jokes” for most of the states, so at the very least you have something to read if you get bored at work today!
The selling point of this free ECOgrade photodegradable trash bag, other than being free, is supposed to be that it’s biodegradable. I foresee two major problems here. First, what happens to the garbage after the bag degrades? Does it start blowing out of landfills? Call me crazy, but we need our trash to morph into flowers over time as well.
Also what if I want to throw away a pile dirt right now? Will it speed up the degrading process and cause the dirt to get all over my kitchen? No, stop asking why I have mounds of dirt in my house. You’re focusing on the wrong aspect of this scenario.
If you’re planning to travel between Jan. 9 and Feb. 28, 2013 and you live near a large city on the east coast, you might want to pick up one of 200,000 free Megabus tickets. Plug in your travel details and use code TRYMEGABUS to see if there are any free seats left on the bus. Now who wants to join me in going to Boston?!
Congratulations! You've just discovered HIF - the coolest site on the Internet if you ignore lots of other sites. I'm Goob and I spend way too much time looking for 100% legit freebies. I also make horrible jokes.
