Everyone loves free things. Something you found for free adds so much happiness to our mundane lives. It doesn’t matter what we are finding things free for. We all appreciate things that we find for free. They add that extra bit of cheer to the day.

And we can find so many things online. But we often hate paying for things online, more than paying for things in real life. So, we are now tapping into the territory of free things and resources that are already available for you. Why buy something when you can get it online for free?

So without further ado, here are free things online that you are missing out on:

Between work and school, it is often difficult for us to learn something new. And when we try to learn something new we face the paywall of different sites. It can be really frustrating to be willing to learn and not find resources that fit our budget.

However, you can kick that worry aside now. There are so many free online courses and certifications that are available now. Open Learn is a prime example of free courses that provide certifications. You can learn anything from languages, and about health, psychology, IT, business, law, and many more. You can also check this article out for free online courses.

Have you ever wanted to buy something but are short on budget? Well, we have found a solution just for you. Hop on to freecycle and search for the stuff you want. People on freecycle are usually looking to get rid of something they own. Whether it be a piece of unused furniture or some books, you can find something free around you.

And what more? You can also list your own items that you are trying to get rid of. Be it that you are moving and can’t take your stuff or are decluttering. You can help someone else who might be looking just for that item.

Copyright-free photos and icons

The pain of having to pay for stock images is too real. Whether it be website owners or students, we always are looking for alternatives to buying stock images. Now your prayers have been heard!

There are so many sites that offer royalty-free images now. Pexels, Unsplash, and Pixabay are some to name a few. You can use the copyright-free images provided by the photographers on these sites. Just remember to credit them or thank them for their help. You can also use The Noun Project and Flat Icons for free icons.

USPS shipping supplies

package boxes and wrap

This one is going to help small businesses and people who are constantly moving. Have you ever had to buy cardboard boxes or bubble wrap while trying to move? Well, you can get shipping supplies from the United States Postal Service for absolutely free.

But the catch is that you can only use them to transport the products and not for freight services. However, if you just need some boxes and bubble wrap, then you are in luck.
