never miss a flash freebie again! for girls on the go!

So, I get kinda panicky if I see that, while reading blogs from my feedler app, someone is having some sort of flash freebie. Like when Graphics from the Pond has a one day facebook freebie and I am not home to download it. Then when I get home I have forgotten about it!
Panic stricken I tell ya! I love free!
So, when I was playing around with my phone on my TpT app last week, I just tried downloading a freebie (Amanda's to be exact)
and wa-la!
SO here is how to never miss a freebie while on the go!

find that freebie you want. Mine was Amanda's What Writers Write posters. (this will also work on facebook)

click download and you will have these to choose from. You need DROPBOX. If you do not have a dropbox account I am ashamed! Ok, not really, just sign up right here! right now! It's free and super convenient! 
(and I'll earn free space, too!)

You could also mail it to yourself, which is what I do it Melonheadz or someone has a very quick freebie! That will only email the link, though. I use dropbox for any files since they are usually too large!
and here we go!
the file will open right up and then you can save it in your dropbox folder. 
Hope that saves you from losing something for free! I hate when that happens! 


  1. You=Life Saver! I hate that feeling...when I miss out on a freebie because I'm not by a computer! Thank you!

  2. Um, how did I not know there was a TpT app??? Thanks for the heads up!

  3. Ok- I just tried it and I don't get that drop down menu like you show... I have an android... do you have an iphone?

  4. Ahhh! Sorry to hijack your comments! ;) I figured out how to do it with Adobe Cloud instead!

  5. You gave me an idea of how to save items on my Kindle. I used to get so frustrated when I would be reading my blogs on my Kindle and couldn't save something. Duh, never thought about Dropbox. THANKS!

  6. You just made my day!! Thanks so much for sharing this!!

  9. Oh yay! I didn't know how to do that until I read your post! And you're right... everyone should have "Dropbox!" :)


  10. What about things that are on "Google Drive"? I can't figure that out! Love the article tho...very informative! :) Thanks!


  11. I just did this, this morning but I didn't check to see if it worked and I kinda can't remember what I saved, lol.

  12. Thanks so much. I can't tell you how heartbroken I've been when I'm away from home and miss a really good flash freebie. You ROCK!
