I’m Wendy (aka Gimmie). I started Gimmie on March 7, 2010. I’ve met so many wonderful freebie hunters, some of whom who help me find great deals for you. They are amazing people who also have full lives, families, and happen to be bloggers who love freebies and great deals. I’ve come to call many of them friends.
I’m a work-at-home mom with two stepsons in their late 20s, and one 8-year old. Last summer I moved back home to Wisconsin with my husband and little girl. After living in SoCal for years, we were eager to slow down the pace and enjoy our family’s cabin.
A few years ago my hubby became very sick. Without his income, I found myself in a scary place and the burden seemed unbearable. I founded Gimmie on a whim and a shoestring, hoping to figure out how to reach freebie fans who shared my interest in saving money. And then you found me. Now I get to interact with fellow freebie lovers every day, and I’m reminded why I do all this – it’s all you, honey. I have met so many incredible people by doing this; I didn’t realize how great the fringe benefits would be! Helping others save money and get free stuff is so personally satisfying, it feels like I was born to do this.
I started this blog because I was so tired of misleading freebies that so many of the “Top” freebie sites post. They’re the kind you have to complete offers to get a free tic tac (lol), and you still don’t get anything free after signing your life away. And inevitably you’ll forget to cancel the trial memberships you just got to get your free tic tac, so you actually wind up spending money. Who wants to do that?!
