Whoever said nothing in this life comes for free was completely wrong.
The internet can sometimes seem like a cruel and complicated world, but it has also given us some of the most amazing stuff… and for free!
Redditors from all around the world have proven this to us. This thread is full of users who share the best things they’ve found online, for free! From tools to help you at work, to educational platforms, and even sites to keep you entertained; the Internet’s got your back.
Of course, because knowledge is meant to be shared, we’ve assembled a list of the best free stuff the internet has just for you. Take advantage of this information and get ready to make your life ten times easier.
1. A site where people give away stuff they don’t want anymore
“https://www.freecycle.org it’s literally people giving away stuff they don’t need/want any more that they can’t/don’t care enough to sell.”
Thank you u/TheAwkwardDyslexic
2. A car part supplier that also shows you exactly what your car needs
“www.1aauto.com is a car parts supplier, but their videos show exactly what tools you need, what parts you need, and how to do a repair yourself. Great money saver if you don’t know much about mechanics.”
Thank you u/Creepysideboob
3. Free packaging boxes and supplies
“USPS and UPS both will deliver free packaging boxes, envelopes, bubble wrap, etc. to your house. Literally doesn’t cost a thing and you can get like 50 boxes at a time.”
Thank you u/mackzs
4. A place to get free photos of anything
“https://unsplash.com/ Unsplash is where you can get free photos of just about anything, provided by the photographers themselves, to do with what you like.”
Thank you u/Elin-Calliel
We here at Trending Sloth also love to use Pixabay for amazing quality free-images.
5. A helpful tool to sort your citations
“Maybe not everyone, but for students Zotero.org is a lifesaver. It will store your sources, import them to a bibliography in whatever citation style you need, and even create in-text citations in your paper. It saves hours of work.”
Thank you u/secondhandbanshee
6. A free virtual library
“Openlibrary.org and archive.org are sites where you can find a lot of free useful books and articles”
Thank you u/sdsanth
7. A site that will track online prices so you can get the best deals
“Camelcamelcamel.com is really nice to track online prices to help you get the best deal. Also, Black Friday is a myth and the sales aren’t good at all.”
Thank you u/Magikarp_King
8. A free 3D animation tool
“Blender.org is a free, open source, nonprofit 3d animation tool that is powerful enough to rival Autodesk Maya in terms of capability, and lightweight enough to make rendering fast yet easy on your computer’s processing power. I hear it can also do 2d animation, though I have yet to try it.”
Thank you u/epsilon388
