Lesson #1: There is such a thing as a free lunch  
The ambiguous "they" say you can't get something for nothing.  I'd beg to differ.  About a month ago, I was browsing on the Sam's Club website and saw an offer for a free sample of shampoo and conditioner.  I decided to fill out the form to request a sample and was pretty skeptical that it would actually come.  I was pretty bored that day and Googled "free samples" on a whim, and lo and behold, a whole treasure trove of free stuff came up.  Since then, I've been doing a daily search for freebies and now every couple of days there's a surprise waiting in my mailbox.

I'm going to use this entry to log all the samples I sign up for, where I signed up for them (so you can sign up too), and when/if I received the sample.  I'll post pictures/reviews of the samples in separate entries.

Most of these are from http://www.shop4freebies.com/

It doesn't seem like they've shared my email address with anyone, but if you are hesitant to give yours, I'll post all the freebies I sign up for here.

re; freebies
I think signing up for free stuff is cool! At least so long as its something you'll end up using. I always love when I go to Sam's club and they have the free sample food carts there. Have you looked at Walmart.com's page? They have free stuff there too. I'll have to look through the links you provided and see if there any that are good for me, thanks!

Re: re; freebies
Free stuff is the best! Even if it isn't something I can use, samples make great accents to gifts, stocking stuffers, etc.

I love the Sam's carts too :) I do check out the Walmart samples. The Sam's Club website has samples on it too. You need your membership card to get them.
