Find Time and Money with the Best Free Software of 2008

ComputerThis is the last of The Time Finder’s Cyber Monday’s for 2008. You can’t beat finding time AND saving money with time-saving, FREE software, so I thought it would be a perfect time to feature some of the best free software of 2008, according to PC Magazine.

Their offerings are divided into very helpful categories, and many items listed were also previously reviewed in the magazine.  I’ll highlight just a few of the items that I have either used or find to be interesting – and I’d love to hear your experiences and recommendations!

Audacity is listed in the Hall of Fame and, based on my experience, is an excellent pick for that honor!  As a tool for recording and editing sounds, I have found it to be very flexible and use-friendly, as well as doing a wonderful job.

iTunes continues to be a powerful tool for downloading and organizing your music and other audio material.  I use it for keeping my voice files and teleseminars – anything I can download in MP3 format – organized and easily accessible.

Skype is a free phone and video phone application that just keeps improving! For those who are signed up, Skype provides very easy, FREE, calls and video-conferencing (even internationally).

For those who work with graphics, there are lots of possibilities for organizing and editing your digital images – all good and all FREE!  I have found Picasa to be an excellent tool – and it looks like there are quite a few others worth exploring here, too.

You can’t start a new year without a new calendar – and you’ll find some of the best  (FREE) on-line calendars here!

The time-saving and money-saving possibilities are nearly endless. The great thing about this freeware is that you can experiment and learn what works best for you, without spending an arm and a leg to find out!

I encourage you to explore the options. What works for you? I’d love to hear!

What if you could find another hour every day? You can! For more Time Finding resources, you are invited to sign up and download The New Finding Time Boundary Template. It’s FREE, and when you sign up you will also receive (if you don’t already) my FREE, twice-weekly Finding Time Tips and my FREE, monthly Award-Winning Finding Time E-zine!

Let’s explore time together …


  1. Thanks! And if I find comparable programs specifically for Mac, I’ll pass them along…

  2. Thank you, Alison – I would love to hear about Mac-specific free-ware. We’ll look forward to any tips and info you can share here!
