Help! I’m Drowning!

You know you’re guilty of it, those free samples you just can’t live without. Everywhere you turn today whether it’s at your favorite fragrance counter or beauty store someone is anxious to give you a free sample of their product. Not to mention if you travel a lot you probably already have a huge selection of hotel brand shampoos, conditioners and body washes. Who can resist, right? Until one day you discover just how much you have been hoarding.

It’s true nobody likes investing in a full-size product and being disappointed so a free sample to try beforehand seems like the perfect answer. Is it really though? Today most beauty stores allow you to buy with assurance. If you try the product and don’t like it simply return it.

So what do you do with all those samples? Actually try to use them! Organization is the key to knowing exactly what you have. But even with organization you might still be so overwhelmed with the sheer volume that they don’t get used in a timely manner. One solution is to simply throw them away, if you can bring yourself to do so.

Better still donate your unused samples to shelters that can always use shampoos, conditioners and body washes. You’ll feel good in the process knowing someone will use and appreciate them.

Another fun concept is to host a get together with your friends, who you know suffer from the same dilemma and swamp samples that you might actually use.

With a little thought beforehand you can be creative and wise in your quest of finding the perfect new product and stop drowning in the process!
