Happy Friday! The week has gone again in the blink of an eye, as has the sunshine; it’s back to grey skies, rain & cold here in the UK. Keep warm & dry & check out a few Frugal Friday picks for this weekend 🙂
Free Cat Behaviour Guide
Want to figure out what cats are trying to tell you? Their crafty little minds work in mysterious ways, but Cats Protection have made a book to help you decipher cat behaviour. It’s an 18 page guide that covers the normal behaviours of a cat, understanding cat body language, dos & don’ts for caring for your cat, and tips to ensure your kittykat has the best life possible. This is UK only & can be requested here.
Free Ladybird Books Activity Pack For Little Ones
One for those with kids – Sign up to the Ladybird books email newsletter & they’ll send out a free activity pack for the little ones. Each month they’ll also email you a selection of activities, stories & ideas to ‘grow little readers’. Seems suitable for worldwide sign-ups as the activities are printable.
Free Glow In The Dark Poster From The BHF
This is a great freebie (sadly UK only) for educational purposes, perhaps for children, yourself, schools or the local area. It’s a glow in the dark poster from the British Heart Foundation to show the connection between heart diseases, stroke and vascular dementia through the circulatory system. One poster per person. *Expired*
Check out The Book Depository for their Most Wished book list to get some inspiration for your next read. There’s lots of variety & they have great prices, but I particularly like they’re free worldwide delivery with no minimum spend! Check it out here.
Converse Sale & Discount Code
I’ve posted before about Converse sales as I think they’re great, and I rarely ever buy anything full price these days – they have another big sale on at the moment, woohooo. Free delivery over £50 and free returns. There’s also an extra 10% discount (enter this where where asks for a promo code in the shopping basket) when you use the code ‘Extra10’ – take a mooch at the sale here.
Audible : Free 30 Day Trial & Audiobook
These trials are a great way to try out audiobooks & see if you like them, discovering a range of listening material that can be a great alternative for when you need help relaxing but can’t concentrate on reading a book or your hands hurt to hold one. The trials are free for 30 days to new customers of the service and you can cancel any time, no strings attached.

After that it’s £7.99 per month to get access to a range of audiobooks, free exchanges, free audio shows and one audiobook included each month. What’s more Prime customers will get a 90 day free trial but this offer ends soon. Sign up here & cancel any time.
US : This Amazon US 30 day free Audible membership here comes with 2 audiobooks & 2 Audible Originals for free. After the trial you get to choose 3 titles each month as part of the $14.95 subscription.
Free Kindle Thriller
Shadows Of Regret by Ross Greenwood sounds like a gritty, emotive, thrilling read and it gets a 4.5 star rating from readers – this is currently free for Kindle download on Amazon. Woohoo! Worth a try when it doesn’t cost a penny & you may just discover a great new author. Get yours here for UK. Get it here for US.
Whatever the weekend has in store for you, I hope it’s as relaxing & low-pain as possible.
