Free Stuff Online

Kelly Ann Butterbaugh

Internet bills have become an almost essential cost today, and great service plans can be found. While your plan might be at the lowest price available, you can still get more for your money. Try to make the most out of internet service by finding all the free stuff offered online.


Kids' Stuff

There is a plethora of free kids' stuff online and the only cost is an internet connection and a printer. Games, coloring pages, activities, songs, and even anti-drug activities can be found at various free sites such as these:

While some of these sights ask you to register for free, the activities are free without registration. However, should you choose to register, these are reputable sites that shouldn't bog down your computer with spyware.


Maps are too expensive and often outdated. Get instant driving directions as well as city maps by using web sites such as or People have found some minor errors in the directions on sites such as these, so it's always a good idea to check two websites for directions before leaving for your trip. (Keep in mind that maps have minor errors as well.) Don't forget to print reverse directions to get home; what seems like a simple reversal might not be so simple. Some roads are one way, and exchanges vary depending on the direction traveled.

Discounts and Coupons

Caution should be used when visiting online coupon sites. These sites list grocery and other coupons which can be printed. While most of these coupons can be found in your local paper or at the stores themselves, these sites download more than the coupon to your computer. Heavily loaded with spyware that is quick to jump onto your computer, these sites should be entered with caution.


Instead, look at the direct source for your coupons. Companies that specialize in baby products are especially willing to offer many free products. By simply registering at, you can receive free baby keepsakes, coupons, samples, and more. Older toddler products are also offered such as potty training products and tips.

If you're planning to visit a location such as museum or special event, check the web site first. Often admission coupons are posted online offering a few dollars off entrance fees.

Surf around and find great stuff for free. By taking advantage of what the internet has to offer, the monthly fees won't seem so steep.
