Who doesn’t like FREEBIES?  Getting free samples is a great way to try out new products before you buy them!  I love free samples so I am updating a list of the best freebies, free samples and giveaways each week.

I recently attended a humanitarian night where we used free samples and travel size products to make bags for our local police to give to homeless individuals.  It was wonderful to have a great way to use my free samples and help someone in need.

Free samples

Here are my favorite ways to use Freebies like the ones on my weekly list:

  • Use them to make hygiene kits for shelters or humanitarian groups.  These are very much appreciated and easy to put together.  Items to put in these are: shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, soap or body wash, razors, lotion, tooth paste and toothbrushes.  You can add other items too.  I like to add wet wipes.  Think about what you would want to have if you had to leave your home in an emergency.  It’s good to get kids involved in creating and delivering these kits.  It’s a simple and easy thing that really helps people in need.
  • Use them when you travel.  No one wants to have to take a whole bottle of shampoo with them on a trip but it’s no fun having to hope the hotel has what you need.  Sample sizes are perfect to fit into your bag and you always have the shampoo, conditioner, and lotion you prefer.  I also love to take samples of deodorant, hair styling products, tooth paste.  They fit nicely into my hygiene case and I don’t have to worry about anything spilling!
  • Use them for back packing or camping!  Ok this is so great!  If you backpack, you know that every ounce of weight counts.  That usually means that my family thinks things like soap, toothpaste, shampoo, and deodorant are optional. YUCK!  That is just not a fun ride home!  The samples are so small the are perfect for back packing and the ride home is so nice we sometimes stop for ice cream!
  • Make fun guest baskets for your guests to use when they visit.  It’s just such a nice extra touch to place an extra tooth brush and toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and other things depending on your guests in a cute basket in the bathroom or guest room for your guests to use.

No matter how you use them, hurry and get your Free Samples today!

    1. We did this a a big group with my church last month and gave them to our local police. The police keep them in their cars and give them to homeless people who are in need. It felt really good to have a lot of samples to donate.

  4. I do like to have them in the bathroom, along with hotel shampoos and things like that. They are especially great when my kids have gym at school and need to shower there.
