6 Things You Should Never Spend Money On

I mostly consider my freebie and free sample addiction as a fun hobby, but throughout the years I have learned that are a few dependable freebies that make it possible to not spend any money at all in certain areas of my life.

I save hundreds of dollars a year getting some items in my life for free, every single time. This doesn't mean that I deprive myself either, it simply means that these freebies are so readily available that they're there for the taking most of the days of the year.

Keep reading to find out what are the items I never spend money on, and how you can do the same.

I get dozens of free magazine subscriptions to all the magazines I could possibly ever want or have the time to read.
 

These are not business journals that you've never heard of, these are popular magazines that include women, parenting, family, business, and hobby magazines that you are most likely paying money for right now.

In the past I've gotten free magazine subscriptions from Woman's Day, Family Circle, O Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Parents, Shape, Better Homes & Gardens, Family Fun, All You, Cosmo, US Weekly, OK!, Field & Stream, Allure, Women's Health, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Popular Photography, Good Housekeeping, Ladies' Home Journal, Redbook, Glamour, Popular Science, and many more.

Thanks to all the free samples I get, I'm never without travel-sized toothpaste, free sample bottles of shampoo and conditioner, packets of body wash or tiny soaps, and a large stash of perfume vial samples.

I get these free samples from my daily list as well as free samples programs like PINCHme and Proctor & Gamble BrandSampler.

Makeup and Other Beauty Products

I love trying out new makeup and other beauty products and I get to do this without spending a dime.

I make sure to request any new makeup free samples and beauty free samples whenever they're available as well as pick up free samples from Sephora whenever I'm at the mall.

The best source for free beauty products and makeup is through the Allure Free Stuff program. I've gotten tons of freebies from them over the years.
