The real trick to taking advantage of free offers is to only select those that your family will actually use. There was a time when I would have signed up for every single free & sample offer I found, just for the thrill of getting something for nothing. Then, I had to figure out where to store all those tiny bottles and packets of products. If I remembered to use them up, I had to contend with the tiny packages in a shower with no shelves... not a lot of fun. Today, I bypass plenty of free sample offers because they aren't products I would normally purchase.
I know that some people collect the samples and donate them. Please consider where you're donating these and whether the recepients will actually want the items. A homeless shelter might be happy to have these... a nursing home, not so much. I speak from experience~ trust me, most frail elderly people do not want to deal with hard-for-them-to-open samples of unfamiliar products!
