Free IKEA Secure Hardware Kit

Free IKEA Secure Hardware Kit

If you've got a small child at home or the prospect of a drunk-Goob ever visiting, you might want to pick up a free IKEA secure hardware kit. They're clearly designed for IKEA chests and drawers, but they should be simple L brackets that should work with most generic furniture as well.

They have two kits to pick from, depending on the size of your furniture, however you can pick both of them if you have a ton of potential weapons furniture.


Free ASPCA Pet Safety Pack

Free Pet Safety Window Decals

This free ASPCA pet safety pack is a classic offer that's still active. I posted this free pet window decal first in 2008 and yet here it is, active as ever. If you don't have a pet rescue window decal up on your house yet, or an Animal Poison Control Center magnet, then I'd definitely sign up for this freebie. It's such an easy, free way to make your dog, cat, or pet safe in the middle of a fire or emergency.

I've put these up in every home I've lived in. My brothers and I even once put the correct information on them instead of creative insult names for each other! Although, now that I think about it, my old pet window cling isn't by the front door anymore. That can only mean it peeled off, fell on the floor, and was most likely eaten by one of my dogs.

Looks like I need to request a new pet rescue sticker. Next to it, I'll put a HIF sticker and little drawing of me slumped over my computer and drooling. Because let's be real, if there's an emergency, I'm probably going to need to be rescued as well!

You'll need to confirm your email after requesting these. Once that's out of the way, you can expect your freebie in 8-10 weeks.


Free Charmin Toilet Paper Roll Extender

Free Charmin Toilet Paper Roll Extender

The ever classic free Charmin toilet paper roll extender freebie is still active and has a new link for US residents. No more precariously balancing larger rolls of toilet paper on broken towel racks!

You can order up to 3 free roll extenders per household and freebies should arrive in 2-4 weeks.

I feel like this freebie is a Top 10 for Longest Active Freebie, no? Trust me, young freebiers, this is an ancient offer. Gotta love the classics!


Free FTC You Are Here Bookmark

100 Free FTC Bookmarks

The FTC offers many different variations of free physical bookmarks in bulk. The smallest quantity you can order are 100 of them, so these might be great for any teachers or book clubs out there in HIF land.

I didn't personally order these because I didn't want to waste a hundred bookmarks. If you're only looking for a single free bookmark, then use this list of free bookmarks that I keep updated. I still use my tick identification bookmark, which is a sentence I never thought I'd utter!


Free Hard Water Test Strip

Free Hard Water Test Strip

Morton Salt is giving away free hard water test strips. I used to joke about the silly concept of “hard” water, but not anymore. Last week I turned on my shower and was greeted with an iron anvil to the chest.

I still have no clue how it got through my pipes.

These freebies should arrive within the next two weeks.

Free Drug Disposal Pouch

Free Deterra Drug Disposal Pouch

The national nonprofit SAFE Project has teamed up with Athletico Physical Therapy and the creators of the Deterraยฎ Drug Deactivation and Disposal System to host a third annual Gone for Good. This environmentally safe, at-home medication disposal campaign helps to prevent addiction and properly dispose of excess medications. That's why from April 1-30 they've giving away free Deterra Pouches to households nationwide, excluding Alaska and Hawaii.

Here's how the pouches work:

  1. Tear open pouch โ€“ do not remove inner pod(s). Place unused medications inside.
  2. Fill pouch halfway with warm water and wait 30 seconds for air to release. Some foaming may occur.
  3. Seal pouch tightly, gently shake and dispose of normal household trash.

There are approximately 1.8 million unwanted medications in U.S. households right now. If your house is one of them, then request a free pouch today.

I don't have any pills to dispose of in my home, so I didn't request this freebie. If the signup form isn't working for you or they run out of samples, please let me know!


Free Jazz Appreciation Month Poster

Free Jazz Appreciation Month Poster

The 2021 free Jazz Appreciation Month poster is available! You can download a high resolution PDF of this poster or request a physical freebie by clicking the blue “Request a poster” button.

Featured on this yearโ€™s official 2021 poster is pianist, singer, songwriter, storyteller and civil rights activist Nina Simone. Born February 21, 1933, in Tryon, North Carolina, Simone became enamored with music at the early age of three when she learned to play the piano by ear.

Whoa, I can't even play piano by fingers. Imagine hitting all the keys with just your ear – impressive!


Free National Poetry Month Poster

Free 2021 National Poetry Month Poster

Note: this freebie is aimed at teachers, librarians, and students

I don't quite “get” the free National Poetry Month poster you see above. Then again I don't get much poetry beyond the roses are red variety and even those are known to throw me for a loop. Sometimes they're pink or white!

That said, I'm excited for this free poetry poster mainly for the alliteration as opposed to being a poetry fan. I'm not even sure I could name a single poet. Robbie Freeze? Amelia Ricketson? I know Edward Ellen Pope is a famous one. Oh yeah, Salt Shizman!

This is an annual freebie offer that ships out in May each year. The 2021 poster was designed by twelfth grader Bao Lu from Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn, New York, who was the winner of the 2021 National Poetry Month Poster Contest.


Free Benjamin Moore Paint Sample

Free Benjamin Moore Paint Sample on March 20

Swing my your local Ace on Saturday, March 20 and pick up a free Benjamin Moore paint sample of your color choice.

You'll need to first make a free Ace Rewards account, but that's both super fast AND triggers your future birthday freebies! You'll also get a free $5 off any $5+ purchase coupon sent to your inbox.

In years past, these have been 2oz or 5oz samples. It got me wondering what I can do with that amount of paint. My short list includes giving my cat tiger and/or racing stripes, outlining my body on the sidewalk to mess with my neighbors, and creating a bullseye on the wall to practice my dart skills.
