Do you take advantage of hotel freebies? The first thing we check upon entering the hotel room are the freebies like the welcome drinks and fruits, toiletries (soap, shampoo, toothbrush), grooming kit (comb, shoe polish), slippers, stationary and pen. I am not ashamed to say that I have a lot of hotel slippers in my collection which we use for our bedroom. Those freebies can also be a homecoming gifts that I usually give to our housemaids. They loved the soap, shampoo and sometimes there's cologne from the 5-star hotel. One time there was a 5-star hotel that has a can of expensive tea as freebie. It served as a Christmas gift for my husband's boss who appreciated that Genting tea. .
