Who doesn’t love a freebie. I’m pretty sure it’s ingrained in our DNA. Lucky for us, there are lots of generous folks and companies giving you access to quality goods and services at zero cost. Hooray for the Internet!
Font Squirrel is a graphic designers best friend. The site features hundreds of high quality fonts, all free for commercial use. I’ve downloaded dozens of freebies for my design projects. Some of my favorites are: Pacifico (the font for my logo) and Quicksand.
It’s no secret I’m in love with this site (I included it in my recent roundup of free graphic design resources). I now use it as my primary tool for creating web ready graphics for my blog and social media accounts. If you’re struggling to create professional looking graphics for your site, definitely give this tool a try.
Cards Against Humanity
Not for the faint of heart, Cards Against Humanity is an adult version of Apples to Apples. It’s great fun and often times downright hysterical. However it’s best not to play it with mixed company, i.e. Grandma, your boss, etc. Bless the creators for making this fun game free. Simply download the file and print.
Two of my favorite magazines are available online: Matchbook Magazine and London’s Stylist Magazine. If you’re not already reading these two publications, then add them to your must read list. You’ll also find some additional great online reads in my sidebar. Save a few trees and read online.
I’m actually not sure what people did before Evernote. I use it to take notes for work, plan blog posts, clip interesting articles from the web and create to do lists. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. This online tool is really powerful and is used by millions of professionals to stay organized. If you’re struggling with keeping your digital life all in one place, this tool is for you.
Why pay big bucks to attend an exercise class when you can watch professionally taught exercise videos online. Who doesn’t love getting fit for free in the comfort of your own home? Sites like YouTube or FitSugar have tons of great, fat-blasting routines to watch.
This free file transfer tool is incredibly useful for both business and personal use. I’ve used it to share vacation photos with family members and to send large design files to my developer. Whatever your file sharing needs, the free 2GB allotment is just right for most transfers.
