Debi's Daily Dollar idea: Free Samples

Today's money saving idea is brought to you by hundreds of businesses who give away their products for free, in the hopes to make you a lifelong customer.  Over the past couple of years I have stockpiled free samples of diapers, pull-ups, paper towels, garbage bags, make-up, shampoo and conditioner, lotion, pens, granola bars, candy, drink mixes, laundry detergent, dishwasher tabs, cereal, rice mixes, infant formula, dog food and more.  The internet makes it a cinch to find, and send for free samples.  My favorite freebies website is:  http://forums.startsampling.com/index.php

When you get to that website lick on "Real Quality Samples," and "Coupons/Deals" and "Other Free Stuff."  You should be able to find several samples to get started.  Visit daily, or a couple times a week or once a month, depending on how much time you have, and how much free stuff you want!

 I have used many of the individual samples of shampoo and conditioner when I go on trips.  I've given the diapers away to new moms, and we've enjoyed countless treats without spending a penny.  Sometimes you can request free samples when you visit individual company's websites.

Why pay for something when you can get the product for free?  Once you get started you may want to keep a "Got it for Free" journal to keep track of those freebies.  Feel free to leave feedback when a freebie shows up in your mailbox!
