How to Coupon:
A great way to save money is to sign up for free samples. Usually along with those free samples you get coupons, which help you save big when a deal comes around. You can take those free samples and put them in gift sets or just use a nice little basket to put them on your bathroom counter for guests when they come over. They are also great for donating. Free samples are available all of the time from different companies, especially for new products or a new scent that they put out. For example, about once a month, Bath and Body Works will put out a coupon on their Facebook page for a free small bottle of lotion. You can go to www.P&GEverdaySaver.com and request samples and coupons. You are allowed to request different samples and coupons four times a year, plus they will randomly send you a P&G coupon booklet with higher value coupons for P&G products than what you find in the regular inserts.
