Fabulous Freebies

Put your wallet away. Here are 26 valuable goods and services that don't cost a thing.

Cheapskate, skinflint, tightwad -- whatever you want to call us, we hate spending money and love finding a good deal. If we can save a few bucks, we're happy. And if we can get something for nothing, we're in heaven.

Even in these days of $400 haircuts and million-dollar starter homes, you can find plenty of things for free. We've pulled together a list of 26 of our favorite things you can get in life that are free. And it ain't junk, either. These are valuable goods and services that you actually want, from free music and movies to legal advice and financial services. We've laid out our list in text format below, or you can check them out in our slide show.
