Happy Friday! Has it been a long week for you, too? Well, the weekend is upon us and I thought I’d round up just a couple of quick Frugal Friday goodies. Enjoy 🙂
Free First Aid Guide (UK post & worldwide online resources)
The amazing guys over at St John Ambulance are giving away a pocket-sized first aid guide for UK residents. I think first aid is often something you think you probably won’t need, yet knowing some basics could come in incredibly handy, maybe even be life-saving. You can request a copy by post (1 per request). If you’re outside of the UK, they also have lots of online resources and a mobile app too for you to check out. You can find out more & order the guide here.
Spent money I don’t have again, oops! I replaced another loved-to-death pair with these gorgeous Converse booties (cost me £22.49) in their sale 😍Good time to buy & keep them in if you’re like me & refuse to pay full price for anything these days. There’s an extra 25% off sale items applied at checkout for a limited time & free delivery over £25!
Google Digital Garage – Free Courses
Free courses are being offered by Google as part of their Digital Garage scheme. There are various topics to explore, including within data & tech, digital marketing, and career development. Each course lists the estimated time of study required, how many modules there are, and what’s involved (such as video tutorials & recognised certification). These are a great way to learn something new, brush up on your skills, perk up your CV or just keep your mind engaged. You can find them here.
Free Toilet Hunting
I came across this recently and thought it was a pretty cool, and incredibly useful, idea. The Great British Public Toilet Map. It is exactly what it says it is. A map of public toilets within the UK. Obviously it won’t capture everything, but it’s a great pointer if you’re planning a trip or worrying about what facilities are available nearby. You can check it out here.
Free Optical Express Eye Test
Another freebie for the UK lot, so if you’re in need of an eye test but don’t want to fork out for it or aren’t entitled to a free test, you might want to check this out at Optical Express. I’m not affiliate with this in any way & can’t say how good or not Optical Express are because I’m not sure if I’ve ever been, but I’d certainly consider them if they have this freebie going in March when I’m due. Fill in the form and book your test, and you’ll also get 10% off glasses (over £100) and a free second pair if you need them. You can find out more here.
I hope everyone has a restful weekend, whatever you’re up to!
