Now seriously, who doesn’t want free things, right? For me, it’s always exciting to discover free things and tinker around to see whether they work or not – I can go hours and hours trying to test and learn a free website/game/feature and eventually make up my mind whether it’s for keeps. You’ve probably seen most of the good games I’ve played (and had the time to write about) on this blog, but I wanted to do some justice to a few others that have changed my world over the past few years.
If you do end up using anything on this list, then awesome! Sound off in the comments below 😉
Note: This list would probably see a few changes now and then since I’m always trying out stuff!

I am a total sucker for their free downloadable wallpapers – they are GORGEOUS! They give out new wallpapers almost every month so you can change it up as often as you like.
I’ve been using Canva for free for YEARS, and I love how straightforward and easy it is for non-designers to create something artistic and colorful. I admit I’ve used their template designs time and time again for quick posters and blog materials! I’ve also tried their premium version, but if you just need something for personal use, the free version is also excellent.
Probably not surprisingly new for some people but Freepik has been a life saver for more than one occasion, and I owe it my life.
I haven’t used and searched the site extensively as the others on this list, but they do have lovely stock photos with Creative Commons Zero (CC0) License, so they’re completely free to use!
I have a love-hate relationship with PaintsChainer, but it’s always fun to see how this website will add color to your line art! I also love the fact how most artworks turn out painted like a washed out watercolor, a style that I like. Read more and view samples from this article.
I swear that Grammarly is one of the best writing companions I’ve ever seen! I love it so much that I gave in and got the premium version, but the free one is also just as good. You can also try out their add-ons and extensions, which I’ve found are very helpful in writing emails and comments on websites.
If you need to have something cited in MLA, APA or Chicago, this free tool can help you out – minus the annoying ads!
Toby is the BEST Chrome extension I’ve ever used in my whole life. You need to look into this if you’re the kind of person who opens many tabs and gets a little lost along the way.
I’m an absolute advocate of going to your local library, but if you want an adventure and try out a few independent authors, getting free e-books from Instafreebie is your best bet.
I owe vgperson my heartfelt gratitude for introducing me to the world of RPG Maker horror games! You can visit their site for some well-known classics such as Ib, The Witch’s House, Mad Father, and Misao.
If you love the RPG Maker platform or just starting out to see its’ wonders, then it would be worth your time to scroll down to see upcoming or finished projects from aspiring game makers and enthusiasts worldwide. I discovered Dreaming Mary through this site, during its early stages of development!
I love how you can watch anything on the web with anyone using rabbit! Recently, I’ve also been using this to share my current browser to friends! The only thing to be wary of using this site is that you have to have good internet connection on both sides for it to work.
I’ve mentioned that I love tinkering, and being on Ubuntu just satisfies that side of me. I used to have it as my primary OS, and trying to customize it to your needs is amazing! They also have an amazing community and FAQ section so that you won’t get too lost either.
