Don’t you just love free samples? Our local food store offers free samples of a huge variety of cheeses, especially on the weekend. It gives us a opportunity to try before we buy. We can also get a sample of lunch meat at the deli counter before we buy it, and they also offer the kids a free slice of cheese. Then on to the bakery for a free cookie! When my kids were little they always knew where the bakery was, and they got a cookie at the end of our trip. Nowadays, my youngest is 12, and no one offers her a cookie anymore, but she loves sampling the cheeses (although I am sure they would give her a cookie if she asked!).
