Are free samples worth it?

I used to disregard free samples, often wondering what I would do with such a small quantity. However, I found such samples really handy when I travel or if a family member became sick and we'd try one of the over-the-counter medication samples to hold me over until I could buy the full size.

As funny as it sounds, today I submit every free sample offer that comes my way, tucking it away for future needs.

Free samples are a way for companies to entice you to buy their product. This gives you a chance to try a product you wouldn't normally purchase. They conveniently fit in your purse or car, and are great for emergencies or travel. I even saw a post online where some frugal soul put together great little teacher gift baskets using free samples, which apparently turned out amazing.
