Freebie Friday

This post is about celebrating the many wonderful things in life that don't require going out and spending money. 

Five Fun things to do for Free

  1. Play music.
  2. Make a rag rug. Maybe not everybody finds that super fun but I sure do! :-)
  3. Take a walk and take pictures of beautiful things that you see. Be observant and creative in your picture taking. Beauty can be found pretty much everywhere.
  4. Invite a friend over for tea or coffee and a chat.
  5. Go watch a robotics tournament. Or have your child get involved with robotics. It is pretty interesting and generally sponsored by businesses so that makes it pretty much free for the kids. Also it doesn't cost to go watch. The picture below is an old one of Jonathan's team but they are busy working on their robot again and we will be heading to the state competition in a couple of weeks.

 Learn for Free

  • How to make ribbon roses. Megan and I were working on some decorations for a friends wedding and so I watched this video as a reminder of how to make ribbon roses. I love Youtube videos for learning things like that!

  • Veritasium is a Youtube channel that the kids and I have enjoyed watching quite a few science videos on. He does a lot of neat experiments and checks out interesting things. I don't say that I agree with everything (I don't really know his world view) and we haven't watched nearly all the videos but much of what we have watched has been good.
Read for Free (on your Kindle or possibly other devices)

Listen for Free

This song by Joey and Rory reminds me that I still have a giveaway of their DVD going on for another 24 hours. You can enter it here.

Free Gifts to Give

Things to Print for Free


"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23

Disclaimer: When I say free it doesn't mean that it didn't cost somebody something. Also I may list various activities that are free to me because I already own the equipment needed but if you don't than it wouldn't be free to you - just skip those. Some things that might be listed might not be truly free (like inviting your neighbor to join you for supper) but really aren't going to cost much more than you would already be paying.

What a neat post. Thanks for sharing. I love walking and taking nature pictures. That is one of the best freenthings to do. Besides the library.

Hi, Abbi!
Thank you for stopping by and visiting me! Your post here is upbeat. I like to chat over coffee, listen to music, take photos and I remember how much fun it was to make a rag rug!

May your week be blessed,

Abbi, thank you for posting. What prompted me to comment was that my younger son participated in robotics competition that same year that you show pictured. Unfortunately, he only chose to participate for 2 years and then has not continued. I always had fun watching them. Hope you are having a blessed 2017!

Mary, Thanks for sharing those fun free ideas!

Texas Gidget, that is funny that I happened to share a picture from the year that your son was in it too.
