I love to receive free samples in the mail. It’s a great way for me to try products before I commit to purchasing them. As you begin to request free samples and coupons, I recommend opening an alternate e-mail address so your personal e-mail isn’t inundated with ongoing promotions and offers. Read more suggestions in my tips to requesting freebies post here.

1. Breakfast Freebie
Complete the information for a Cream of Wheat sample. You can print a $1 coupon to use on your purchase too.

2. Free hand-washing timer
Request a timer for washing hands. This could help create a game for the kids to make sure they are washing their hands thoroughly.

3. UnderJams sample
Request a free UnderJams sample. If you don’t have a need for these for yourself, shelters always appreciate the samples and coupons!

4. P&G samples and coupons
Every month, P&G releases new samples to request. Sign up at P&G Everyday Solutions and request the newest samples and coupons!

5. Ziploc Gift Pack and coupons
Try for this Ziploc Fresh Start Gift Pack (limited to the first 3,000 people who register). There are also great SC Johnson coupons to print, including a $4 Glade Starter Kit coupon!

6. Recipe books and kitchen guides
Do you want free help in the kitchen? These recipe books or guides will help with that need! The free downloads include: The Happy Housewife's Guide to Dealing with Picky Eaters, After School Snack Recipes, California Olive’s Low-Cost Dishes Recipe Book, and No Yolk’s Fast and Healthy recipes.
