Freebies in the Mail

Do you like to go to your mailbox? I know it isn't so fun with those bills laying in there but one way to make mail delivery more enjoyable is to order up some free samples. I try to send for a free sample everyday. Anything from shampoo, to dog food and everything in between. Makes going to the mail worth it just to see what goodies you forgot you even sent away for.

I have received some really great coupons by doing this as well. Every once in a while a nice surprise will come with your sample like this coupon for a free package of Always.

 I have set up an e-mail address for ordering these as they always want you to enter one but I don't want my personal box to be bombarded with junk mail so I have one just for these and just go in and delete it every once in a while.

There are a few good sites for finding them. lists a lot of them but you can go straight to Walmart and Target and order free samples. Walmart especially has good ones all the time. is a great sample site that I go to every few days to find samples I want to order. Some sites request more info than others and if I don't want to be bothered I just skip that one.

One thing I do with all my free bath product samples is to put them in a little basket in our trailer bathroom. That way when the girls and I shower we have some fun things to choose from and the girls love trying all the new shampoos and body wash samples out and you can just toss when you are done. Makes a fun little surprise every time they go through it when we take the trailer out. Order some freebies and make going to the mailbox fun again.

  7. What a great idea! I usually use the bathroom products from hotels when I travel since they are so small. But I love your idea of putting them in the trailer. I have a friend who puts all of her hotel size products in a cute basket in her guest bathroom for her friends who come to visit her.
