I love a great deal and I have found a few lately! Yesterday was a goldmine! Coupons for $7 off any Allegra...that equaled 11 free boxes! Also, one of our local grocery stores seems to always have the 9 oz. Dawn dish soap on sale for $0.99. This is also the store that doubles coupons up to $0.50. I had coupons for $0.25 off regular Dawn and $0.50 off the Olay ones...which equaled FREE for the Olay! Here's to better looking dish pan hands at no cost! LOL
I have yet to find one of those great overages or totally cheap trip total, but I will forge on and enjoy the savings I am finding while still trying to make the big score. I have gotten behind again on clipping my coupons, and the pile was starting to get out of control. In fact, some of the coupons had expired by the time I finally got to them. I would like to come up with a new way to organize them...maybe where I do not have to clip them. This is where a tablet would come in handy. I can just sort them all and enter the info into a program on a tablet. It could save me tons of time! I could have expiration dates and such all organized and then it would make it a lot easier than flipping through like I do now. What I need to make that happen is a few good weeks of deals to save up some money! lol That's what my husband would say anyway, lol.
I continue to stock up on items that I find great deals on, and I try to avoid things I would not normally purchase. I also try to avoid junk food, candy and such...unless it is such a deal that I can't pass it up! Oh! We did get 2 other GREAT bargains! We got toothpaste for $0.10 and tooth brushes for $0.30! They were all on clearance at Walmart and I had COUPONS! It was one of those weeks where I wish I had more papers! But I was still happy...got 6 tubes of tooth paste and 12 toothbrushes. Those are the bargains I love to find! I have also been lucky on laundry soap a few times. One of the grocery stores around here has a little clearance rack with all kinds of items. Usually the times are about 50% off the regular price. I have been lucky to have coupons when they had laundry soap. And it usually when the bottle gets dented or something, lol. I can still use it!
That is about all of the savings I can ramble on about right now. I will let you know about the next big deal as soon as it happens! Until then, keep clipping and saving!
