We all know that millions of apps are free. But did you know that you can find almost anything you want for free? In this newsletter, I'll give you 10 of my favorite links to find the best stuff FREE.
Note: each paragraph heading is the link - just click and go!

Click the heading above for a list of 50 places to find all kinds of free eBooks. If you have a Kindle, you're set. If you have an iPad or another tablet, just download the free Kindle app and go.

Credit Score & Report Card
Lots of free credit score sources have popped up recently. One that I like is Credit Karma. It gives you up-to-date information - and you don't have to buy anything.

Want to skip the cost of a gym membership or getting your own equipment? Then is the place for you. It offers every type of exercise support (yes, free!) you could want - all types and levels, in short or long segments - with illustrated instructions and videos. It also provides many diet plans on video and with daily recipes and support aids/tools.

Your Own Blog
Do you want to start a blog for your business without the cost of a designer or server? Google offers at absolutely no cost. It's easy! In just a few minutes, you can pick your design and type style and get started.

Once your tax return is submitted to the IRS, track it on the "Where's my refund? section of their website. It gives you the status of your return . . . and the information is updated every 24 hours.

Beauty bloggers who contribute to magazines like Vogue, Allure, Lucky and even GQ post their free finds - with photos - on this Pinterest section. You can try new products before making a purchase.
