I've got a pretty good collection of samples and freebies going and Sara at Learning the Frugal Life inspired me to dig mine out for use.
This is a picture of some of the health and beauty samples I have. My stash is made mainly of HBA items but I have laundry and food items, also. Using some of the goodies should save us a little money here and a little money there and what's not to like about that?
Some of the items we simply won't use and those are going to be listed on Freecycle. Surely someone can utilize them, huh? If they aren't picked up they'll go to the local shelter.
Do you have samples and freebies lying around? If so, this might be a good time to gather them up and use them or give them to someone who will. You might save a little money, free up a little space, or give a little help and those are all good reasons to get the freebies and samples together.
