While doing some research for a paper, I stumbled upon the "free sample" link on walmart.com. There I was able to request some freebies from various manufacturers. A few weeks later, the special little packages started to flow into our mailbox. So far I've enjoyed a free packet of cranberry pomegranate crystal lite, a 2 week supply of liqui-gel multivitamins, and some vaseline man lotion--smells goooood. More is on the way. You know, since growing up all I really receive in the mail is bills and junk adverts; it's sure nice to have little treats waiting for you. (Stride has a pretty funny free sample promo going right now.)
On a totally unrelated note, I've found something so corny, so cheesey, so goofy that I must recommend it to everybody. Even if you're not a fan of Joss Whedon and spontaeous singing, you must watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog now (3 acts about 15 minutes each--mild language warning).
