Check it Out! Having spent around 6 months in a hotel, I have amassed quite a little collection of mini soaps, lotions, shampoos, etc... I decided I didn't just want to throw them in the closet as they can be very useful! So I picked up this great glass container at Ross for about $6 and just dumped in the samples and put it on the kids bathroom counter.
So whether the kids run out of something or we have company that needs something, there is plenty in that jar to get us through!
You could do the same thing with food samples as well. Got alot of coffee samples, stick them in a pretty urn and display them on the counter. Put your stock of snack bars in a bowl on the table. This would also be great for your spare room, have company coming? Stick a basket with all kinds of samples in it in the room for your guests to enjoy.
