About Us

wendy1x1I’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.

kidsI’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?!

 

Meet the Gimmie Girls

heather1x1 I’m Heather, a stay at home mommy of a beautiful little lady named Heaven. I’ve had passion for freebies, and deals since I was young, and I learned at an early age the importance of making the most of what you have. I’m a total fan girl when it comes to the Walking Dead, and all things zombies! In my free time you can catch me kicking butt in COD on PS3, trying my hand at a yummy creation in the kitchen, taking pictures with my new Nikon, or doing crafts with my little girl. I’m a diet Mountain Dew addict, and have a weakness for cake …and Charlie Hunnam! I have been with Gimmie for awhile now, and I’m so proud of how it’s grown! I look forward being a part of it for many years to come!

Trish1x1I’m Trish, a stay at home mom to two wonderful but crazy boys who keep me on my toes constantly, a beautiful baby girl and another baby girl on the way! I’m also married to my wonderful husband and partner in crime! My life can get pretty hectic and of course I’m always on the lookout for the best deals and freebies I can find! With a family as large as mine is, there’s nothing better than catching a great deal! I enjoy baking whenever I can or cooking tasty meals at home for my family. I’m also big on DIY crafts and making bows and tutus! I love nature and being outside, I think I belong in a MUCH warmer climate. I’m a big family girl and love every moment I get with each and every one of them! I’m fairly new to Gimmie and I’ve really enjoyed being a part of it, I’m excited to see what the future holds for Gimmie!

Neletha1x1Hi, I’m Neletha. I live in Flint, Michigan as the young, college-educated, and freebie-finding girl next door. I started my freebie-finding, deal-hunting journey in April of 2013 while attending college. My eyes were suddenly open to the numerous, non-stop opportunities of scoring a bunch of free stuff and grabbing money-saving deals – I couldn’t look away! Ever since then, I have been on the lookout to get my hands on what I can, for free or low-priced, and live a fairly frugal, yet enjoyable life. That eventually landed me here at GimmieFreebies – dream come true, right? Other than post good finds for you all, I like to read books, go to the movies, do cardio workouts, spend time with my family/friends, travel, listen to music, play with my cat, and learn about ancient cultures – History Channel nut! As a Gimmie Girl, I am very glad you decided to stop by and benefit from this growing freebie site. Please stick around and enjoy many more things to come!

Reylin1x1My name is Reylin and I love to save money. Finding freebies has always been something I’ve done here and there, so when I discovered GimmieFreebies, I was super happy; especially when I became a gimmie girl. I attend college on and off, so saving money by finding deals and freebies helps a lot. I grew up with 6 siblings, and have always been considered ” the cheap one.” I like to look at it as being the smart one though My hobbies/interests include baking, listening to and sharing music with my best friend, eating, playing Minecraft, and dreaming of being a classical musician who owns a cafe and writes food reviews for a living (it could happen). Since I’ve become a Gimmie girl, I’ve learned A LOT about coupons, deals, and freebies and hope to learn much more.

Laurie1x1Hi, my name is Laurie. I live in the St. Paul, MN area, and have been married to a really wonderful guy for 31 years. We have three great kids…well, they are young adults now (that takes some getting used to). I’ve been in to finding bargains, thrifting, freebies, re-purposing, garage sailing, etc. for as long as I can remember. I just love cool old stuff, in part because it reminds me of my grandparents, all of whom I miss very much. At our church, I’m known as the person who can find anything for a bargain (or free!), because I have the “gift of scavenging”. I enjoy reading and cooking (and feeding people). My husband’s new hobby is restoring old Glastron boats, so we’ve been spending a lot of time boating, camping and having fun. I’ve known Wendy, (you know her as Gimmie) for quite a long time. We actually met at the hospital (‘cause she’s my sister). I’ve been one of the Gimmie-folk for a while now and really enjoy reviewing new products

If you love free stuff and can’t get enough, you’ve come to the right place!! We scour the web for freebies, offers and great deals, and then report back with our findings.  We usually post a few dozen offers EVERY DAY!  We don’t bother with the stuff that makes you jump through a million hoops to get it, or the ones that make you complete offers you’ll need to cancel, and cannot really be attained.  Just real, cool free stuff!
