Day 391 - September 9, 2010

I'm a little obsessed when it comes to freebies. I follow a lot of frugal bloggers that link up each and every free sample for shampoo, conditioner, face cream, body wash, and the list goes on. I have a hard time passing up the opportunity to receive new products in the mail. So as you an imagine, my bathroom cabinet is filled with samples. I recently decided it was time to start putting these samples to use in any way that I could.

Aside from making great body wash and shaving cream, I've learned that shampoo samples are perfect for cleaning sinks, bathtubs, and make-up brushes. My make-up brushes haven't been this soft or clean since I first bought them! Bring on the samples!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm following you back. Glad you like freebies! I love your idea for using them to clean makeup brushes. Definitely going to try that. I try to keep those shampoo samples on hand for guests or unexpected trips. I hope you'll come back for my weekly freebie friday posts.

Take Care =)

Not that we would want to give stuff away, but I know alot of people who take quart size bags of freebies and make little care packages for homeless. The often add a granola bar and toothbrush. Then just hand it to them. I love the idea.

Followed you from Friday Follow! Beautiful photography. Love the one of your little guys chubby legs in the swing. Might have to do that one myself!

What a great idea, Melanie! Now that's a much better use for those products. Thanks for sharing!
