The Best Things In Life Are Free

Posted: Updated:

Let's face it. Usually when you see something advertised as being free, there's almost always a catch. And that "catch" will almost always end up costing you money, often more than if you had paid for the so-called "free" item to begin with. But every now and then someone tells you something is free and turns out, it really is. A great case in point is the Apple apps store. To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the store, Apple is offering popular apps for your iPhone and iPad, some of which would normally cost up to $20. Now that's a deal! The steepest discount appears to be Traktor DJ, a cache of tools for mixing and recording music. That one typically sells for $19.99. MapMyRide+, the photo-text app Over and the recipe app How to Cook Everything, were among other top apps being given away by the tech titan.

And one great way to beat the heat these days is a 7-Eleven slurpee. But it tastes even better when it's free! You can get one from 7-Eleven stores Thursday, July 11th. And perhaps the best news of all is that this one will be even bigger than the ones given away last year--12 ounces.

And there's one more freebie to tell you about, but this one does have a catch. On Friday, July 12th, Chick-Fil-A will celebrate its cow appreciation day. If you happen to be a fan of the fast food chain, you can get a free breakfast, lunch or dinner combo meal. But here's the hitch: you have to show up at the restaurant dressed as a cow. I'm not a huge fast food fan to begin with and I'm not willing to dress up like a cow for a free meal.

But if you are, bon appetit!

    How about a little lesson on conservation from Willie the Cat. Willie starts unrolling all of the paper until it is all on the floor. But you have to watch what happens next in this viral video.

    In 2013 the HTC One (M7) was one of my favs, so I was excited to see what the next gen model would be have in store. One word, "impressive!" Beautifully crafted, possibly the best on the market. Behold: HTC's One (M8)
