Free Stuff Online
One of the best things about the internet is the amount of free stuff available, you can spend lots of time searching around finding free competitions, prize draws - sometimes simply for signing up for a newsletter or filling in a questionaire. Sometimes it's just a matter of giving your name and address to get a free sample. Quizzes are another way of spending a bit of time chilling out - better still if you can win a prize.
As parents and carers we all need a bit of time not thinking about day to day worries, but just switching off and browsing through some fun (and freebie) sites.
SPOTLIGHT on FREECYCLE.ORG -
this is a great site for finding free stuff in your local area. Great if you no longer need something, but are loath to throw it away and even better if you need something but are short of cash - fabulous idea.
