Works for Me Wednesday

You know what works for me? Free Samples!

I love getting free samples in the mail.
WalMart runs free samples all the time! I enjoy getting the free diapers/pullups for my diaper bag, or the sample wipies work well too. I like trying new products - most of the samples are for lotion, shampoo, body wash - very fun to see what's new on the market, and what might possibly pop up later for free at Wags.

Best part about free samples is that they come with fairly high dollar coupons! Love it.

In a couple instances, free samples have come in very handy. I signed up for Parent's Formula sample from Wal-Mart back when Annie was still on formula. Totally had forgotten that I signed up for it (I sign up for anything! - Love FREE stuff) and one day I was just swamped - exhausted from work and had a busy evening with the girls lined up and it was the Wednesday before payday - which translates into - NO MONEY. Annie had formula at the sitters, but we ran out at home and to my surprise and relief - I checked the mail - big formula sample in the box. I was praisin' the Lord! He provides in weird ways. Right down to free samples from Wal-Mart!

Moral of the story - sign up for free stuff, free newsletters, free coupons -get on the company mailing list- you never know when it'll come in handy! I set up a separate g-mail account just for my coupon and freebie sign-ups, that way I can keep it organized from my home account.

Works for me!

My Inbox Surprises this week...

A 5.00 Huggies Coupon! For 1 package of Pull-ups! Wow - never seen them that high before!

A new shower caddy from Scrubbing Bubbles. Guess what? Our old one broke a couple of weeks ago! (actually, it didn't break - it was broken by our 3 year old!)

  1. I like getting the Walmart free samples, too. Awesome the way the formula showed up just when you needed it. That's just the way God works!

  2. I really like walmart's freebie offerings too. They are among the best.
