Swimming in freebies

A few months back I posted some ideas on what to do with all the freebies, samples and giveaways that come in the mail or are given to you in stores and malls.  Here's a little photoshoot of my last eight month's haul of freebies.  Mind you, these are only some of them; I've used a bunch, donated and given away others, and many just didn't fit on the table. 

This is a large part of the reason my makeup and toiletries budget for the year is about $20, if that.

So I'm out of ideas on what to do with some of these.  Most of the time they sit in my overflowing guest room basket.  I'm at the point where I stopped sending for stuff that I know we won't use right away.

Any new ideas, fellow Cheapskates?  What do you do when you're swimming in freebies?


  1. Wow! I'm so impressed. I'm trying to collect freebies to include in welcome bags for my wedding guests... but I won't come up with a stash like this in time.

  2. Great idea Caroline! But there are so many other things you can put in the bags as well. Have you hit the dollar stores yet?

  3. Terrific idea! Once we get invitations out, I'll be able to focus on the next step. :)

  4. Congratulations! (Going to check out your blogs in a little bit.)
