Where to Find Free Samples

I love to find and receive free samples. It’s a great new way of trying new products that are coming out. I also save them to make little gift bags up at christmas for my sisters.

                      Lots of free samples I have collected - Rachel Bustin
Over the past few months I have recieved many free samples and small wins through the post, so today I thought I would take a piccy of the ones I have left that haven’t been eaten, drank, given away, planted or used in some other way!
The Coco Pops porridge sample only arrived a few days ago so I am looking forward to that one, as I’m a major chocoholic! I found this sample giveaway on Facebook. I normally find it very hard to win anything on there, I believe it’s because the volume of traffic on there entering competitions nowadays has grown tenfold. A few years back the chances of winning a competiton was relatively good! It just gives me more determination to try harder! My only other win from Facebook this year was back in January when I was a runner up in a Roots crisps competition, they were yummy!
Finding Free Samples
  •  Visiting your local department stores for health, beauty and makeup samples. If like me you don’t always wear makeup they are practically throwing them at you!
  • There are lots of freebie websites out there, so if you sign up, they send you emails each day with links to sample giveaways.
  • Some magazines giveaway new trial size products so keep an eye out when you go shopping!
  • With the increase of social media users nowadays lots of companies are giving away 100’s of samples to advertise their products. Facebook and Twitter are the best ones for this!

Most of the other samples are plant seeds, which for a huge gardening enthusiast like me are the best post arrivals ever! All the little white packets are herb seeds so I thought I would grow a little herb garden in some pots on my patio.

I would love to hear your thoughts on which are the best freebies you have ever recieved?

    I like getting perfume samples. I fine them great for trips away without having to lug a massive bottle around.
    I did recently go into body shop and ask for a sample of their drops of youth primer. I would have not done this before reading blogs like this. It's absolutely ok to ask for a sample if your just not sure about a product or if you are looking to discover new things.

    I love finding free samples/freebies. I keep a collection of them and have tons! Perfect for trips away (no carrying bottles full) My best? ooo tough choice, I think I'd say my little tote bag free from H&M I use it all the time!
