Some great new samples became available this week, so be sure to request yours before they run out! Yesterday I got my Folgers Black Silk coffee sample in the mail, I get so excited when I see those blue & white Walmart boxes in my mailbox. And I save those boxes because I’ll use them for packaging gifts – here’s the “Walmart box hack” in case you missed it. I won’t even be putting wrapping paper on those boxes, I’ll be stamping them or using paper cutouts to decorate.

They will help you match up those coupons you have with great prices! Just remember that each Walmart store carries a slightly different selection of products and that the prices also vary slightly by region. Be sure you understand and print a copy of Walmart’s Coupon Policy. If you have any problems using coupons at your Walmart, please follow-up with corporate by calling 1-800-WAL-MART.

Walmart is the best source of free samples for a wide variety of products. Their free sampling program is managed by StartSampling and they say that you should get your samples within 2 to 4 weeks of requesting them.
