Frugal Living: Grab Five Fantastic High Tech Freebies

You can put away your credit card, because these items are 100% free.  What a wonderful four letter word – free.  You will find absolutely no hidden fees.  Have fun with these deals.

Wi-Fi Internet
Surf the web using a free Wi-Fi spot and you can reduce the data fees on your smart phone and reduce your utility bill at the same time.  Use wififreespot.com or download a free application like Free Wi-Fi Finder onto your smartphone to help locate free Wi-Fi spots in your area.  You can generally find free Wi-Fi at bookstores, restaurants, libraries, and coffee shops.

Calls on a smartphone
Have you heard of Skype?  It’s a wonderful application that costs absolutely nothing to download to your smartphone or computer.  With Skype, you can call any family or friend who is also signed up on the Skype network for no cost.  Use it on your smartphone to call people without using your cell phone minutes.  Be sure to call them while using free Wi-Fi access at one of the locations you found. 

Unlimited texts using your PC
So you want to be able to text, but cannot afford an expensive text-messaging cell phone plan?  You can text for free using any personal computer.  You will need to sign up for a free Google or AOL e-mail account, and as long as you have access to a computer, you can text any mobile number and receive texts as well, all for free.  Go to http://www.google.com/googlevoice/ to learn more about Google Voice and http://www.aol.com/ to learn more about AOL’s service.

Computer advice from an expert
Skip the big box stores and expensive technical geeks.  You can find expert help for solving your computer problems online for no charge.  Check out forums and advice from the professionals at http://www.geekstogo.com – an online community of thousands of volunteers who are eager and available to help you with your computer woes.

Photography editing software
Are you a shutterbug?  Do not pay big bucks for pricey editing software.  Instead surf on over to http://www.picnik.com to edit those priceless pics.  You can alter photos from Picasa, Facebook, Flickr or your computer hard drive using their tools.  You can resize, crop, rotate, and add cool fonts and special effects for free.
