There’s tons of useful, quality stuff on the web. Tamas Revoczi did the legwork for us and gives us the best:

1. OpenSource free software: open office (same stuff as Microsoft, excel,word etc., almost always compatible, free), Mozilla for great applications like firefox browser, calendars (lightning), e-mail (thunderbird), and GIMP for photo management (resizing, touch-ups etc).

2. Google also provides e-mail, online calendars and address books etc. This is great if you travel. In addition, they provide fun toys like google earth and sketchup (a 3-d sketch drawing app) .

3. Free antivirus for windows courtesy of grisoft.

4. Craigslist – job postings, stuff for sale that’s very inexpensive, free stuff

5. Free dating site: plentyoffish

6. Communities (find an online home!): Facebook, MySpace, Virb, LinkedIn, YouTube

7. Freeware/Shareware (free is usually by donation; shareware usually lets you try something for a while, then pay a reasonable price)

8. VistaPrint – free business cards, stamps, stickies

Nancy started her own journey with money over 15 years ago, and formed her company “Your Money by Design” in 2004 to help others along the same path.

Freebie Wednesday: best of free stuff on the web Comment

  1. Free Software – the TTCS OSSWIN CD (Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society Open Source Software collection for Windows) is an outstanding compilation…


    My own blog (http://newsandtips.carputers.net) has many links to freebies, free software, and computer tips and tricks.

    As an aside, though I am an “Ugly ‘Murrican”, my wife’s mother’s family are Ontarians. Does “Canadian by Marriage” count?
