For my birthday in May 2016 I went out and got a freebies haul! Unfortunately I couldn't pick up any of the foodie freebies, but I got quite a lot of other free stuff.

I managed to pick up:

  • A Benefit brow wax from Debenhams worth £12.50.
  • A pack of thank you cards from Paperchase - I only paid 90p after student discount and the £5 voucher.
  • Three bottles of £2.50 hand sanitizer from The Body Shop and they were on 3 for 2.
  • Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or deluxe sample free from Space NK (worth £3.90).

In total that's £28.90 worth of stuff this year - and I could have also got cookies, doughnuts, milkshakes and more too!
