free stuff

Fact: Everybody loves free shit. Testers are god’s gift to broke beauty girls, free samples are a diet staple and as soon as we see a sign saying ‘Buy one get one free’, we load up.

But there’s one day a year when stores around the country will go out of their way to give you free fodda, goodies and crazy discounts: Your birthday.
