    That’s a great idea! Mostly I use them as basket fillers for Birthday and Christmas gifts, but I love your idea.

    I have tons and tons of samples.. I love grabbing all the shampoos, sewing kits, shoe polishing kits, nail files, soaps, ect lol at the hotels.. I have tubs overflowing.. I think my husband gets a little embarrassed lol I guess I should probably use them LOL thanks for the tip.

    Great idea! I have a tendency to put them up. I’m going to start using this idea. I also like the idea of putting up the regular size items so the samples will be sure to be used!

    Did you put drain holes in the bottoms of the containers? Do you have a problem with water filling up in the containers?

    I never thought of doing this. Such a clever idea! I have a lot of free samples that have been tucked into a container in one of my cabinets. I want to use them but I always forget about them. With this idea, there would be no more forgetting.

    Can’t wait to try this!

    Great ideas. I totally agree with putting where they will be used. I use a similar philosophy for organizing my kitchen cabinets! :)

    That is such a smart idea. I know I have samples all put away. I am going to do this! Thanks for the idea!

    I use mine in a “ready to go” shaving kit or cosmetic bag for travel. I have a bag ready for me with evertyhing I need for a trip ready to throw in to the suitcase or duffle bag. Sample size shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, toothpaste, even sanitary products. It sure beats running around to try and find everything at the last minute. I also use the sample sizes in my gym bag. No reason to carry those big bottles around.
