*Updated September 2016*

Starting two years ago, in my quest to avoid spiraling into a quarter-life-crisis, I scoured the Interwebz to discover all the things that people/places/corporations are willing to give me for free just for having been born.

On now the second anniversary of my 25th birthday, I’ve compiled a list of Milwaukee-area freebies that I actually signed up for this year and received just this month. For whatever reason it seems a fair amount of places that previously offered freebies did not send me anything again this year. Your mileage may vary.
