Sometimes, the free stuff you get with beauty purchases is just a burden, but some freebies are too good to pass up. Thanks to eBeautyDaily for pointing me to the Summer beauty deal going on at Nordstrom from now through the first week of June.

With any online beauty or fragrance purchase of $95 or more, you get a very cute straw tote filled with an exorbitant number of great samples from brands like Clarins, Bare Escentuals, and Origins. I am a freak about samples, and these look especially good. Plus, it provides an excuse to spend $95 at Nordstrom. If you need to replenish your fragrance supply, this would be a good time.
