What do you / did you do with your "free" formula?

I received so many sample formulas in the mail and from the hospital. I couldn't bear to throw it out, but I don't need it. I donated some to my local food bank, and I just got more, so I think I will be taking that to my local battered women's shelter, along with my maternity clothes and infant clothes (my son is almost grown out ):)

What did you do with yours?

I saved it for about 2 months and then happily realized that I was never going to need it, so I gave it to someone who will use it.

gave it to friends and donated some - could never understand why some people opt for the bottle without trying the breast I mean I could list a million reasons why breast is best but one big one comes to mind .. its free! lol

With my first, I used it.  :/

I was not going to make that mistake with my second, so I never got any free formula samples (they don't do free samples here).  If I would have, I would have immediately given it away.  Formula was not allowed in my house!  DD is 11 months now, and still going strong!  :)
