2. Try before you buy.
Get free samples from Walmart as another option. I like to test out an item before purchasing. I have so many bottles and containers of purchases gone wrong. I get headaches from overly fragrant shampoos and styling products. So it helps to try before I buy. I will gladly buy the item if it is a match. Target has their own section as well.
3. Keep a calendar of freebies.
This way you don’t forget the ones that happen at the same time each year. You can also anticipate the savings to come. I recently adapted Peter Walsh’s filing system from How to Organize Just About Everything. Having a hanging file with folders for each month of the year helps me to ensure that free is in the near future. Don’t miss out on an upcoming freebie. Put it on your calendar. The reminder is waiting for me in a folder.
