Free Stuff!

As many of you know, I am all about free samples. I mean, why should you have to buy something first to see if it's good. Well, I read a few blogs that tell me all of these great deals and I think you should read them too. Here are a few tips before you get started on requesting free samples.
  • Set up a "junk" e-mail account. A ton of these free sample sites require you to enter in an e-mail address. This "junk" e-mail account is just for that, so you don't end up with a ton of "junk" in your normal e-mail account.
  • Because of the massive amounts of people who are signing up for these free samples, the sites sometimes don't work or are a little slow. If that's the case, try back later, sometimes the next day works best.
  • When filling out the form for the free samples pay close attention to the required fields. These usually have a little * by them. If they don't require it, don't put in the info. Especially if it's your phone number because we all know how annoying it is to get sales calls on the phone.
  • Finally, check you "junk" e-mail account often. Sometimes after you have filled out the necessary info in a form, the free sample company will require you to respond to an e-mail back to them to actually receive the free sample.

Here's a pic of a few, and I mean a few, things I have gotten in the mail. This pic doesn't include the other 2 tins of formula, diapers, toothpastes, soaps, dishwasher detergent, tons of coupons, and much more!

Collecting these things is such a great idea. They could make great gifts for people getting married or in a 72 hour survival kit, or for your own home... in case you run out of stuff or you like to try new products. Below are a few of the sites I read to get these free samples. Have fun!!!
