In this HD video, I show you how to get free food samples at any Safeway Grocery Store simply by asking.  First stop; The Bakery.  I scored a chocolate chip cookie, and a rich brownie with fudge frosting by using little effort.  Getting this freebie was child’s play, but the complementary grub isn’t available only for the kids, as you may have thought.  I use this method on most of my visits to large retailers.  The bakers told me they give out 10-15 trays of 45 count cookies daily.  So claim your grub, and don’t let free calories go uneaten.  Also of note, The Bakery is on my way from the back of the grocery store, where I check the half off sale items anyways. 

Free samples and bargains can be had, even at the most expensive Safeway in America, located in my hometown of Seaside, Oregon.  I do this wild stuff to offset the cost of my calorie intake, and for my own sick amusement.  I want to get the maximum out of any given situation, like I did in this social experiment.  The employees are typically really generous, and don’t mind my request.  
Free Cookie Samples Safeway
A friend and I once got three types of no cost cookies for each person asking.  So we enjoyed a variety of desserts for free to enjoy while filling my cart.  Share your comments below on urban scavenging.Beef Sample at Safeway DeliIn this photo I show off my huge haul of three roast beef pieces after politely requesting to try some red meat at the deli counter.   This was enough flesh for a hearty sandwich, but I ate it in store, and even shared some with another shopper!  Push the limit, and ask to sample each and every appetizing food type behind the glass.  It’s the education you need to become a smarter shopper.

I need coffee, and I need it now.  I’m addicted to Joe, so when the portable GSI Outdoors Commuter Java Press walked into my life, I didn’t let go.  This lightwight, modern french press must have taken years to develop, because it’s awesome.  Survival Bros loves everything about it, plus it makes loose leaf.  Some of the product feature highlights include it being BPA-free, grippy, insulated, and having a non-slip foot.  All this combines for an easy to use, practical, and tactical coffee maker.  The GSI Java Press costs only $22.95.  So at that price why not steal one from them?  There’s nothing negative to say about this product.  It’s been Survival Bros tested, and came out on top.  Visit http://www.gsioutdoors.com for all the information on this piece of gear.  Please comment if you want.

Yesterday I checked out the Collector’s West Gun & Knife show in PDX.  It was a big event, with tons of vendors, and people trading gear too.  I took home a few things, and learned a lot.

The show ends today, but visit www.collectorswest.com to see when it will be in your area.  It’s worth the $12 for admission, and $8 for parking.  I was able to price out stuff I’m interested in, and get my hands on it too.  There were deals galore on new and used guns.  Booths had closeouts on every style and brand of knive imaginable.  Coast Products was there.  My friend got a powerful LED keychain light from them. 

I also ran into my buddy Shawn Gregory.  He makes quality “Predator Paracord” bracelets, gun slings, lanyards, and more.  I got a few samples to test, including the badass band below.  It’s comfortable, and stands out.  You can never have too much cordage just in case.  More on Predator Paracord later, but go to www.predatorparacord.com to see all of his bold designs. 

The Girl Scouts were also in the house.  I walked quickly by them, because I was saving room for Voodoo doughnuts, but it was great to see kids at a gun show.  It was a safe enviroment, and fun for everyone.  It’s important to teach kids about preparedness early.   

I found another company with a product called 4EverLights, (www.uvpaqlite.com) with epic reusable glow-in-the-dark lights.   They have a huge variety of sizes, and styles that really do work.  I had to get some to test and review for Survival Bros.  Sunlight isn’t required, so you can quickly charge them with a flashlight, or whatever.  I like that they don’t affect my night vision either like brighter light sources would.  Ya best believe one is going on my bug out bag, and with me camping.

It was a great show.  If you missed it, there will be another soon.  Just get to one, and get prepared.  You never know when you’ll be faced with a crisis. Plus, a gun show is an excellent place to network with other serious preppers.
