Frugal Tip Monday-10 Free Online Services to Check Out

I found this post written by Amanda On MyDollarPlan. I think this is a great resource for online services that are FREE. This article was written and credited to My Dollar Plan.

10 Free Web Services

Hulu: Check out this website for your favorite free cable television shows, such as Flash Forward, Lost, and Family Guy. For a bonus, purchase an HDMI cable for approximately $2 to hook up your laptop to your television screen in order to air these shows on your tube. Who needs to pay for cable anymore?

Wikipedia: Sign onto the largest encyclopedia in existence, and find information for projects, papers, general know-how, and the latest in pop culture. No need to purchase encyclopedia sets.

Sharpmail: Send that annoying coworker, or beautiful woman you have been admiring an anonymous email or text message using this service. Think about the pranks you could pull-off next April Fool’s Day!

Skype: Stay in touch with relatives, friends, and significant others for free with this fantastic online chatting system. Use its video call function to help ease your distance restraints.

Tech Support Guy: Ever try to use a function on your computer, or find a glitch in your Vista operating system and leave feeling frustrated? Now you can email the Tech Support Guy and receive free tech support!

Fax Zero: You can have your own fax number, and be able to send faxes to others for free using this service! The free faxes will have an ad page, and you are allowed 2 per day (3 pages each).

Free College Courses: Check out this website for a listing of free online courses from some of the top colleges nationwide, including MIT, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, and more.

Project Gutenberg: Download over 30,000 free e-books.

Where’s George: Literally track where your dollar goes to by inserting its serial number into this website. Will that money you spent on a sandwich yesterday end up in Spain, or down the street at a local convenience store? Use this free online tool to manage your personal finances.

What are your favorite free resources?
