Hello and welcome to PrettyThrifty.com!

My name is Lizzie. 🙂 I created this site to give women everywhere a trustworthy, go-to frugal beauty resource. I believe that every girl can look and feel her very best without having to spend a fortune. My goal is to show each of you how.

I’ve specialized in finding makeup, beauty, health and fashion freebies since 2005 (wow, has it really been that long?!) and now I share them with you here on Pretty Thrifty. Our site also features helpful tutorials, DIY beauty recipes, natural beauty tips, shopping guides and more on our blog.

Learn how to determine when to save and when to splurge. Discover which products are worth the price and which ones can be replaced with a just-as-effective affordable version. Learn how to find that fine balance between being “put together”, but allowing your natural beauty to shine through and take the lead. Every resource we provide is created solely to help you look and feel your best for less.

We are always looking for ways to improve our site. We want this site to be as helpful and useful to each of you as possible. If you have feedback or an idea you’d like us to consider, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We love hearing from you!

I hope you enjoy the site!


What Sets Us Apart

Our site is different from other daily deal type sites. We like to go above and beyond. Here’s a little bit about what separates us from the rest:

  • We only post legitimate, trustworthy freebies and deals.
  • We will not bombard you with advertising. Unlike most deal and discount sites, you will not find pages crammed full of ads. We like to keep our site clean, uncluttered and easy to use.
  • We focus primarily on beauty, fashion and health. Most deal sites spam their followers with a never ending stream of random junk. We keep it simple, catering to those of you who want to try new health and beauty products.

Getting Started

If you’re new to PrettyThrifty.com, our Guide to Getting Freebies will help show you the ropes. It gives an overview of how, where and why companies give out free samples. It also has helpful guidelines of what to expect and what to avoid (ie: never give out your credit card info!). We always want to protect you and keep you safe!

If you want to dive in and get some freebies, you can see our complete list here. You can also search by product type or brand via our main navigation bar above.
