There are sites online which will inform you of free giveaways. These can be a great opportunity to get things without paying for them and to try things that you may not normally.
You will find that if you search, there is a selection of sites that will inform you of free giveaways that are available. Often companies will give away free samples as part of their marketing, perhaps if they are developing new products or just want to encourage new customers. This means that you may have the opportunity to get things for free.
It is worth remembering that the free things will just be sample sizes in most cases. This means that you will only get enough to have one try at something. This could be one teabag, a small amount of moisturiser or a sniff of perfume. However, sometimes there are competitions to win full sizes of things and some companies will be more generous with their samples than others.
You have to decide whether you think that it is worthwhile to search through all of the samples available, to apply and see whether you get any. Usually you will not have to pay anything, but it does take time. Also, once the company has your contact details, they may use them to advertise their products. You may not mind this, but you may rather not have letter, emails or phone calls from the company in the future.
Samples tend to be pet food, toiletries and perfume although there are sometimes food items and other things as well. It can be worth taking a look at several different sites that list free giveaways so that you get an idea of what sorts of things are available. This will enable you to decide whether you think that it is something that will be of interest to you or not. It can be great just knowing that you are getting something for free and you can always save some things up to give as small gifts or pop in with birthday cards to gibe to people if they are the sort of thing that you think they may enjoy. A perfume sample is great to go in a draw to make it smell nice or a handbag, a teabag is great for keeping in your bag in case somewhere you go does not have a flavour of tea that you like and toiletries can be great for taking on weekends away. You also may just want to try a small sample of something so that you can find out whether you like it and would like to buy it.
