Also, I get MANY free samples in the mail. There are several sites that list freebies daily and I am a frequent visitor. I may never need to buy hand lotion or toothpaste again in my life. I have also gotten some food and beverages this way. If they are nasty, I will toss them. It is not worth it to me to make myself sick to be frugal. OK, the nasty tea did go in my compost pile.

Sometimes the freebie isn't what i expected and I am unable to use it. AT THE MOMENT. Some of that stuff get s put aside into the "for craft purposes" box.

sometimes I re-use the boxes for something. I have even been known to cut up free catalogs for craft purposes.

I guess the point to my long ramble is: you are right, just because it was free doesn't mean it is worthless.
Hi April, I have to agree with you, there are times when it is impossible to use up or eat freebies that are just gross. Recently, I received sample of some sugar-free cookies and no matter what, they tasted like and had the texture of cardboard....off they went into garbage. I tried but yuck.

I see that you live in WS. I used to live in Kernersville for a year before we moved here. We live right outside of Charlotte now due to my DH's job. We just recently met some friends of our in Greensboro and spent the day there with them. We love Mario's pizza from Greensboro & WS!! Are you familiar with it?

Just wanted to welcome you to FC!!
