Beware the giveaway

They’re available at outdoor fairs and festivals, conferences, workshops, parades, your bank, your insurance agent’s office, hotel rooms. I’m talking about freebies: Those tempting giveaways emblazoned with a company’s logo that beckon innocent passersby to pick them up and take them home.

You know what I’m talking about: pens, key chains, stress balls, coffee cups, magnets, plastic cups, frisbees, buttons…you name it.

So, naturally, you pick up a stress ball and you take it home. And then what happens? It sits on your desk or in a drawer, taking up space. You just willingly picked up free, useless clutter and brought it into your home.

Do you really want to bring useless clutter into your home?

Please consider the consequences the next time you’re tempted to pick up a free key chain/flashlight combo. Your home will thank you for it.
