It sure is helping my "Toiletries" expenses because I did need toothpaste and shampoo/conditioner this month and I saved on those with coupons!
Here is what I got yesterday shopping some of the local deals:
* Toothpaste (NEED)
I paid $4.02 for 5 tubes of (brand name) toothpaste. That is roughly 80 cents each. However here is what I paid for each one:
- Aquafresh 6.4oz - 24 cents (sale coupon for 99 cents and then I had a 75 cents off coupon)
- Colgate (large size) 8.2oz - $1.50 & Colgate Total 4.2oz - 50 cents (sale coupon 2/$3 and then I had a $1.00 off coupon)
- Crest 6.4oz x 2 - 89 cents each (I had manufactured coupons that took off $3.00)
* Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave-In Conditioner (NEED)
I will NOT use any other shampoo/conditioner for my hair than Garnier Fructis. It used to be Finesse but they stopped carrying the kind I used. So I had to research and try a new product back in March and my hair has improved dramatically since using Garnier Fructis and I love it.
I normally pay $2.96 per each bottle, but I had 3 - $1.00 off coupons so I got a total of $3.00 off. Normally I would have paid $8.88 for these 3 items, but this month I only paid $5.88! So definitely coupons are helping my "Toiletries" budget! (I also am going to buy a family size bottle of the shampoo at Walgreen's for 6.99 and then I will get a rebate back in about 8 weeks for 6.99, so essentially it's free besides tax, I just have to wait for the rebate money.)
* Cereal (Not a Need and wouldn't normally buy)I don't buy cereal normally unless it's under $1 a box. Well Safeway has a good deal going this week and I got 3 General Mills cereals for $2. That is roughly 67 cents each.
* Brownie Mix (Definetely wouldn't normally buy NOT A NEED)I don't buy premade mixes, I make my own but this was such a good deal, didn't make sense to pass up! 2 boxes for $1.00, so 50 cents each at Safeway this week.
