About Me_Closet of Free Samples

My name is Ashley and I am the writer and owner of Closet of Free Samples. I am a stay at home wife to a wonderful husband named Eric and the proud mother of Sophia and Jace. I was born & raised in New Orleans, LA and as the saying goes Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler (or Let the good times roll)!

I’m a huge animal lover and particularly have a special place in my heart for cats. I enjoy volunteering with a local animal rescue, called Spaymart, in my spare time and also help run their Facebook page on a regular basis.

As far as my website goes, I have always had a love for freebies, scoring awesome deals, giving my opinion about products, and the computer – which is how I got to this point of having a website. Because I enjoy what I do I am very dedicated to bringing you the best free samples, bargains and my honest opinions on products I try. I am very open to trying all sorts of new products so don’t be afraid to contact me and ask! I even started making a “products I would like to review” list on Amazon so if you have anything similar to these then I’m most definitely interested! You can see my list here: https://amzn.to/2lhIYxN Of course, those are just a few of the things I discovered on Amazon and very open, as I said!

I am the shy type in person, but I still love making connections and new friends so please don’t hesitate to stop by and say hi!

I do not get paid for my site, but I do have to pay to maintain it – web hosting, domain name, etc. For this reason, I do participate in affiliate programs which you may come across often including some guest posting from paid advertisers. Please participate if you are able to with those to help me keep this site going. MOST are free offers anyway that just involve an email sign up or printing a coupon. Either way, it’s an excellent way for you to help support us while still getting something out of it! Even commenting and spreading the word just to show your support is great!


 

How did I get started with this blog?

Back in high school, I was always fascinated with getting free stuff and didn’t think it was really possible. Of course, I soon discovered companies online (back in the day of dial-up and slow internet connections – Windows 95) was offering free samples. I was excited to get a free sticker at the very least! This inspired me to begin my own blog to share the freebies I have found… kind of just something to do since I was bored. I wanted a way to keep up with the freebie offers I was signing up for simply as a hobby – so I made a blog posting each thing I signed up for. I started to keep up regularly and found myself fixing up my blog (now a website) and going from there slowly gaining more readers – something I wasn’t even trying to do when I started. I would spend hours trying to make it look “just right” and much more dedication than necessary if it was indeed a site just for me. Then I discovered other sites were doing product reviews. I began looking into that and began getting reviews & giveaways to add to the mix. I have been posting and sharing them ever since!


How do you manage to balance running a household and maintain Closet Samples?

Part of me wants to say it’s easy, but the other part also knows I put in a lot of hours on the website. Originally, I was working full time and blogging. Now, I blog full time between caring for my children. When I first started homeschooling I tried the whole scheduling thing – turns out things don’t go as planned. So I sort of “messily” plan things:

For homeschooling, we sort of homeschool at our own pace with no time limits. I pick out the worksheets/workbook/etc that will be completed for the next school day each night and we take it from there.

For household chores (laundry, litter boxes, etc), I actually have a planner and make a note on the day it needs to get done. I spread these tasks out rather than doing them all at one time so it’s a lot less work. Having a list in front of me is what drives me to complete it because I hate to leave things unfinished.

All the blogging is done in between homeschooling, chores, and everyday life. If I feel too tired or just not in the mood – I’ve learned to just let it go and take some rest. I love what I do, but like all things, sometimes you just need to take a break.


My Hobbies & Interests

I enjoy scrapbooking, photography, traveling, ANYTHING Twilight & shopping, but the #1 thing I enjoy are doing these giveaways & product reviews along with the freebies in my blog! You could say it’s become a hobby of mine! I’ve been addicted to the computer & internet since I was in grade school so I guess I found the perfect thing for my free time! I also enjoy jewelry making and the Hunger Games series. Did I mention since being a stay at home mom I’ve also fallen in love with couponing as well?!


PR Friendly

I am always interested in trying out new products. I’m willing to try just about anything. So please don’t hesitate to send me an email and ask me about working with you! It can be big and fancy or as simple as handmade! There’s just no limit!
