If you're anything like me, you hate touching anything cold. In fact, almost every woman in my life thinks it's hilarious to wait until their hands are ice cold and then grab my arm or face with them. What is up with that, ladies?! Come on! Us men are not fans of that! So with that said, you can understand why I'd be signing up for one of these free koozies to keep my beverages chilled but my hands nice and toasty (you can see examples of the different options here). Unfortunately, it's freezing where I live right now and I'm bundled in about 19 blankets, so I doubt I'll be able to use this thing anytime soon!
Home & Office
Freebies, samples, and all sorts of cool stuff for your home or office. Calendars, office supplies, and common household free stuff are often given away.
Free World Heritage Map Poster
Woo hoo, a new map! This free World Heritage map poster will be sent to anybody who becomes a free member over at their site. They even have a .pdf copy of the map on their site that you can stare at in awe until your own copy arrives in the mail. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some staring to do.
They've since added a small shipping fee, so I've marked this as expired. However, they're still offering a free map if you're interested!
If your walls are looking a little bare, sign up for one of the free posters and publications listed below! They're the perfect icebreaker for anybody who comes into your place:
Friend: Hey, where'd you get that poster?
You: Uh, from Goob and HIF.
Friend: *weird look creeps upon their face*
You: This site called HIF links to free stuff…and the guy who runs it is named Goob.
Friend: *slowly begins to back away*
You: You know, it's a lot cooler than I'm explaining it.
Friend: Oh hey, look at the time *drops car keys as they fumble with your front door* I think I'm supposed to be somewhere else right about now.
I'm optimistic you're better at explaining HIF than I am.
A lot of these post are for displaying information about wildlife, animals, etc. for your kids or their school. Many of them are gorgeous print posters and I know some of the schools around here could use some extra stuff on the walls to spice up the classrooms, so I just ordered some!
Active Free Poster Offers
Free NASCAR Poster
This is actually a contest to win a car as well as a trip to Miami to see a race, but just for entering they'll send you a free NASCAR poster which features Matt Kenseth, Mark Martin, Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards. I never did get into NASCAR. I always felt if I was gonna watch something that was a borderline sport, I might as well watch some celebrity poker and laugh every now and then.

How many of you know all the Bill of Rights? Anybody? Bueller? SHAME ON YOU ALL! You know, I think each and every one of you should get a free Bill of Rights bookmark so that you can finally learn what Amendment XII guarantees you!
