Free Stuff

As I have not found a job yet, I have tried to mitigate my jobless state by searching for free samples and applying daily for silly drawings. I am quite proud of some of the things I have found on my freebie hunt. For instance, most recently in the mail I have received a sample of contact solution, 2 samples of Wisk laundry detergent, a full sized Nutrigrain bar type thing, a cute box of Kleenex, a coupon for a free full sized bottle of Advil, a coupon for a free full sized container of Cottonelle Wipes, and some other things that I can't quite remember.... (FYI: Crest gives out lame samples, barely enough for one time brushing your teeth, and it leaked. I threw it away)

Just today I signed up for lots more free things! Axe deodorant, Dove deodorant, Toms of Maine Toothpaste, Vaseline hand creme, some probiotics (I'm not entirely sure what these things do but I have found that the more I keep at this free stuff kick the less discerning I get about what I apply for, ironically, that same principle applies for my job search as well), I even signed up to get a Neti Pot and two packets of solution (apparently it flushes out your sinuses. I looked it up on WebMD and they say its ok, so I'm totally gonna try it...maybe. I have this thing about my nose and not liking liquids up there... you know how it is.) And to top it all off I got a free condom combo pack, yes, that's right, a Condom Combo Pack. I must admit I'm slightly wary of free condoms, but what can you do?

Sean laughs at me for my goofiness in this freebie kick that I'm on, but it totally keeps me sane.

I have discovered some other things to do with my free time, like trying to design the new fragrance for a Body Shop bath gel, I call it Clementine Sublime. And decorating the next candle holder for Glade, I call it Spring fields (Interestingly enough Glade changed my design around a tiny bit and told me I'm from South Dakota, go figure). I have also found out the great cleaning power of vinegar and baking soda. (I hate the smell of vinegar so I put some peppermint oil in to make it more bearable, next time I will try lavender) I love the way they foam up and how well they clean the bath tub.

I'd also like to send a big shout out to Netflix, Books, PS3, and HTC for keeping me sane in these last few months of my lonely life, when cleaning and the internet just doesn't cut it.

For any of you guys interested here are some links to where I find out about all these free things:

You may think I have no life.... may be right.

At least I have my free samples.
