I went to CVS last Monday this week hoping to grab a pack of Tena since I had a $2 manufacturer coupon and a $2 off $8 tampons or liners store coupons. I don’t really need pantiliners or pads right now as I still got a decent stock of them but since CVS was on the way to my other stop, might as well stop and see what I can find there.
Good enough I brought with me a few other coupons which aren’t expired and dug in my zipped wallet, I actually found 3 ($1 any tena product) other Tena coupons from a blinking machine long time ago and don’t expire until next month. So now, I got $8 of total store and manufacturer coupons with no extrabucks.
Promise, it was just an accidental haul of Tena pads, in the shelf, yellow tag says $2.99 and when I scanned the 14 pads packaging turned out to be just 99 cents. I couldn’t believe nobody bought them yet so I took all that’s left in there and one regular priced liner which I end up paying $6 plus tax for all 9 packs of pads/liners. One not pictured.
I always love it when I find deals I don’t expect, really. I could grin ear to ear for this knowing that I added my stockpile of pads/liners with this awesome brand. The reason this pads are on clearance is that the store is trying to get rid of the old packaging, there’s a new one out but, really, who can tell the difference? The quality of pads would just be the same as this one.
One of my favorite shops to buy my clothing is Hollister. The material they used are soft and feels good on the skin plus, they have a wide array of selection when it comes to coats, jeans, flip flops, swim, sweaters, long sleeves and summer outfit. Aside from that, when they say “sale” it means deep discounts on their merchandise.
For instance, I scored these long sleeves stripes perfect for Fall for just $5.49 a piece and a $10 Hollister bra. You don’t normally spend a little over $20 for these clothing when you buy them in full price. The promo buy one get one free on clearance should still ongoing, so if you have a chance, head on to the closest Hollister store near you and shop for Summer/Fall outfits while supplies last.
Shopping tip: when you go out shopping and you have coupons at home, don’t forget to bring them for you will never know what you can find in stores you’re going to. For instance, I went to Albertson’s one day and found these Covergirl lipsticks on clearance for $1.99 each and a CG outlast nail polish for 99 cents. Gladly enough, I had my $4 off any CG product manufacturer coupon so I used it to buy two lippies and the nail polish. So, the $4 mq covers the lippies cost, I only had to pay 97 cents for the polish!
When you shop with an open mind, most likely you’ll bump into deals you don’t expect. That’s wise shopping for me. Can I afford to pay full price of Covergirl lippies and nail polishes? Sure, but I refuse to do it since I know heaps of ways to save on those items. Why pay more for items when you know you can get them for less, right?
When one is in a tight budget, he or she would do anything to make ends meet. With that said, you don’t need to sacrifice buying some clothing for yourself for there are plenty of ways to save at the same time buying the things you need.
Another great find I found at a thrift store are these light long sleeves for under $5. These aren’t just mall clothing, these are GAP, Aeropostale and Mossimo. Two of which only priced $3.33 and the GAP is $4.94. Mind you, these were new with original tags still on when I found them. Luckily, two of which are my size, they are perfect for Fall.
Another awesome find is this GUESS lunch box. Who would have thought that I could only buy it for only $1.99? I may not need it right now but I know someday, I will. This can be used to ball game events where transparent bags are needed or for putting lunch boxes in it to work.
So this is my recent haul I made. What’s yours? Do you shop at Goodwill or thrift store too? I do! I should not be embarrassed admitting it for these stores aren’t the “wet market” type. Their clothes are neatly hanged in a clean environment. People I’ve seen who shop at these stores are office workers, elderly, myself and many others that you wouldn’t think you’ll find them digging in thrift stores.
It is just a sense of practicality why a lot of people would rather go there instead of spending so much money on things that they know they can buy for a lot less than in the mall or elsewhere.
It pays to be petite and skinny for if you find a deal on small children’s clothing, you’d be able to snag a pair or two yoga pants for only $4.97 each pair. I found this deal at Costco two weeks ago. I did not expect to score these deals, really plus the fact that it’s Adidas which normally sold for over $30, nothing is sweeter than that.
I bought three pairs, one for me size medium which fits me perfectly. One for my little sister, a large size and a black color, small size for my firstborn. I don’t see yoga pants sold at this price so often and wished I bought the purple color so I can have two pairs.
I always love it when I find low prices on clothing or everyday household items. Because it enable us to save some money. Why would spend full price on something when you know you could pay less for it, right? Practicality is what I am up to for I was born from a poor penis!
Look what I found at Goodwill today? A pair of unused and new pair of sandals. I even look at the soles, there isn’t a scratch, smudge or any sign they have been worn. You know Naturalizer brand is known for their durability and comfort, I shall say. This pair is obviously new and to think it’s only $2.99. Great deal, yeah? These sandals are size 6.5, I like them but I am not keeping them. My mother would appreciate these because they really are very soft to the feet.
There was another pair of closed wedge shoes that fit me very good, I was gonna buy them but I didn’t have enough cash with me, the store had some trouble with their register and could only accept cash. I won’t be going back there until the end of the month so I don’t think the shoes are going to be there when I come back. Anyways, I always love it when I find good quality stuff for affordable price.
I left in the house early this morning for I was concerned that it will be too crowded at one store which happens to have a day sale for flip flops. As early as 9 a.m we were headed to our first stop, CVS to grab some things which is on the way to the mall. Second stop is at Old Navy, they are having an in-store special today only for solid flip flops cost $1/pair, normally sold for $3.50. I bought ten pairs, you might think it is too crazy to buy that many pairs. Mind you, most of these pairs will go to the Philippines for my family.
As expected, the crowd was massive, the checkout was a bit slow albeit there were four people working at the register. The line was too long that it almost wrapped around the store inside. Anyhow, I chose to go there so I was willing and patient enough to stand in line.
After Old Navy, we went back to the mall and shopped some more. Last destination was Rue21. There I hauled pretty nice prints clothing and paid 50% with the use of a store coupon sent to me by a friend. Total was $44 plus tax and was able to make it down to only $25.95. It was a Chevron print kind of day for me. Look at my haul below. First photo was the two flounce top maxi dresses I tried on, I was torn between those two prints, I was gonna buy both but realized I love Chevron more.
…. Another thing I bought for me are these cute Chevron print top and a white cropped bottom. Yes, I know I still got a few new clothing hanging in my closet with tags in them but I know these make me happy. Eventually I’ll be able to wear them, so no worries. I had a good time shopping today and saved at the same time.
Going out to breathe a fresh air without my little one is what I needed. I spent most of my days at home now that it’s getting very hot outside so I think I deserve the shopping spree I did today.
I was lucky when I went to Kroger today and found out that they still have ample stocks on Hefty freezer slider bags or I’ll be very upset. I have not done couponing for a while now until today. I want to finish off my manufacturer coupons before they expire at the end of this month so I forced my achy self to go out and shop along with my two silly girls.
I went to three different stores to grab some items that are a good deal or on sale. First stop was Kroger which I bought the Hefty slider bags for just 49 CENTS each. Mega sale event 99 cents/each if you buy 6 and I had (3) $1/2 manufacturer coupons to use for all six that left me with 49 cents final price.
Second stop was Walmart, I bought a couple of items with the use of coupons but only pictured two products shown below. Final Touch fabric softener is 48 cents each after manufacturer coupons I printed from coupons.com, two $2. Walmart price for it is $2.48. Next is the Rimmel London nail polishes for 50 cents each, I used 3 $1 any Rimmel product manufacturer coupons, Walmart price is $1.50.
I know I already have enough nail polishes but stocking up on them won’t harm me, besides, I am sending some to the Philippines.
I am slowing down in my couponing. I would be glad for the day to come that I get rid of all my coupons completely. But for now, while I still have high value manufacturer coupons, might as well take advantage of the deals it give me. It is getting very hot here in our state so going out frequently would be too much for me and my children.
Anyway, here’s my deals of the week. CVS coupon red machine spits out a $2 off store coupon for select colgate products until Saturday, it is on sale until Saturday so you might want take advantage of that. You must scan your red card and print a $1 manufacturer coupon from coupons.com and pair it with the store coupon. That is how you make your toothpaste free, trust me, it will not cost you anything, not even a penny. See the receipts below. I did it twice because I have two CVS red cards.
Another deal I hunted is from Kroger. There are tons of items that are on sale in Kroger stores right now but this one is so cheap that I want to share it with you my dear readers. Herbal Essences shampoos are part of the “buy 5 instantly save $5” promo, leaves you $1.99 each if you buy 5. But if you the manufacturer coupons from P&G from 5/11 $3 off two HE shampoo or conditioner, you can score each bottle for only 56 cents.
I came up with that price because I bought one bottle of body wash for $1.76 and used 2 $3 HE shamp/conditioner coupons and one $1 for body wash. I know my husband complains about the amount of shampoos we have in stock but it is hard to pass up a deal like this, besides, I love the new HE Moroccan shampoo so I got them.
