When your family runs a business, sometimes you are expected to go to trade shows, expos and/or conventions with them. While regular college students may protest having to tag along with the family to random places like Anaheim or Brooklyn, Poor College Students relish the opportunity because they know that there will be plenty of free giveaways from all the booths and exhibitors.
This is a sampling of some of the things I've picked up in the past two months:
A Time Inc branded alarm clock
From left to right, AT&T branded: lip balm, hand sanitizer, two regular pens, one broken light up pen and one functioning light up pen
Three non AT&T branded lip balms
A whole bunch of pens from random companies
My personal favorite being the United Dairymen of Arizona one
A UPS branded "Pinky tree". A mini plant in a plastic container that you can wear, water or plant
