I hit up McDonald’s the other day and got something completely free from them. It was pretty incredible, actually. I couldn’t believe they were offering them, but it was 100% legit. And you wanna know the best part? YOU can get one too the next time you’re there!
This free item? A smile.
Yup. McDonald’s gives them away a billion times a day along with their hamburgers ;) At least according to the sign I just read there: “Smiles are free” Haha… And you better believe I asked for one too when the drive-thru lady wasn’t having it!
Okay, super cheesy, but still super true. And a much longer than necessary way for me to lead into today’s topic which is this: There’s a lot of FREE stuff in this world, so don’t always rush to go out and buy everything. Take up some of these free activities I’m about to list off, and then put that worn out pocketbook of yours to rest for a bit (does anyone call them “pocketbooks” any more?). Sit back, grab a coffee, and get ready to have your mind blown.
10 Free Things to Be Appreciative of In Life:

- Music (thanks, radio/Spotify)
- People watching (thanks, weirdos)
- Speech (thanks, 1st Amendment!)

Ta-da! See, lots of free stuff out there. Now you can never say you didn’t learn anything from this wonderful little blog here ;) Feel free to alert the press and send this out to all your thousands of “friends” on Facebook and Twitter (also, free). I’ll be back tomorrow to amaze you all over again.
* Can also be paid for, but don’t recommend it. Stop being lazy!
