Bored Surfing the Web? Stock up on Free Stuff Instead

by Erich

free-stuffTaking a tip from The Survival Mom, I decided to see about getting some free supplies for my various bug-out bags. There are many resources online where you can get free samples of food, otc medicine, health and hygiene products, and even clothing if you know where to look and have the patience to sign up.

As a test, I took 30 min of my time today to see how much free stuff I could order online. Here’s the list:

  • Slim-Fast® 100 Calorie Snack Bar – Peanut Butter Crunchtime
  • Nature Valley Trail Mix Bar & Nut Clusters
  • Kashi TLC Chewy Granola Bar
  • Raw Organic Bee Pollen
  • Organic & Raw Honey Sample
  • Special K Cereal Sample
  • Free Beyond Seven Latex Condom – beyond the standard use, condoms make great ‘survival’ water containers.
  • Prilosec heart-burn medicine
  • Enfamil – we’ve got a new baby coming 🙂
  • Diapers
  • Nivea for Men Active shower, shampoo, shave gel
  • Snuggie – The Blanket with Sleeves – not sure if this one will come, it seemed too good to be true.

There are many sites that keep an eye out for you as to what free samples are available. Here are some:

Most sites require that you sign up for the promotion by giving them your email. Instead of using your own email and getting all the accompanying junk that goes along with submitting it, simply set up a free account used specifically for this purpose. I’ve got one called junkmail75@hotmail.com (feel free to spam me if you like :)).

If you’ve got the time or are just sitting in front of the TV with a laptop, why not work on getting some free stuff to add to your stash. Happy hunting!

Erich, you gotta let me know if you actually get the snuggie… they are quite silly.

Hey D,

I’ll definitely let you know (I’m not holding my breath on this one).

Hopefully you won’t need the formula because your wife will breastfeed–I’m still nursing my 2 yr. old, and it’s one of my best parenting tips!

Hey Jo,

I agree and she will be. This is just for preparedness reasons. After all, formula is better than nothing at all.

The snugee is a neat concept, but they’re shoddily constructed and too thin to do much of anything. It’ll barely keep you warm in a cool house, let alone any practical situation. (A roommate of mine got one – quite a disappointment.)

Just wanted to say thanx for the great downloads including the Air Force Survival Guide and the “where there is no doctor/dentist” books. I double downloaded to two seperate flash drives and will be adding them to my bug out kits for use on my mini laptop.
Thanx!

I like to try this. I never knew this was here. Someone told me to try this.
