I have to admit, I was so hesitant to get a facebook account. I figured it was just like Myspace: tweens pretending to be teens, people who are way to old to have an account saying “wuddup” to us youngsters, etc. I was dead wrong.
Now the reason I see facebook as magic is that when it come to us frugal-nistas, it’s the place to be! Besides companies offering freebies to their “fans”(like free starbucks ice cream and free pizza hut appetizers), I can see awesome updates from my frugal friends. Or better yet, my non-frugal friends.
Just yesterday afternoon, I found out that a friend of mine is moving in less than a month and needs to get rid of most of her furniture. Uh, jackpot! Within minutes she had 6 people offering to take things left and right. One of those friends was me. We scored a less than 6 month old sectional couch(it’s huge!) for 150 bucks. Plus, because she’s my girl and could care less about the amount of money she gets, I get to “rummage” her items she offering for free and take whatever I want.
Like I said, I love facebook….
How about you all? Do you have facebook accounts? What do you use them for?
