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?
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!
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 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.
It pays to be a rewards member of Sears. I get to earn points and use points everytime I shop online or in-store. There are offers also that lets you put in 10000 points or $10 into your Shop Your Way members account which I used to buy these two cute little dresses some weeks ago. For a little over $8, I got to buy two dresses shown below and a pair of black wedge sandals. Aside from the points, as a member, all three items were two dollars less than what were listed on their site.
Great deals like these are hard to pass so I took advantage of them. The light colored dress on the left is a little loose though but I can definitely alter it a little bit to fit me. The black one I have already worn once and I loved how comfortable the dress is. The material is so soft ideal for warm days!
… me and my baby at DSW last Friday. I accentuated the dress with a blue skinny belt to highlight my waist.
I am quite pleased of Kroger lately. They have been having sales for stuff that would be great to stock up. Since I do have coupons to pair with their sales, might as well use them all. Good thing though, these stuff aren’t as “in demands” for other couponers so they pretty much well stocked up on their shelves.
Since their 10/10 sale started last week, I stocked up on Colgate 4.6 oz. I used all ten of my manufacturer coupons (4 for 75 cents off and 6 for 50 cents off). Kroger limits 3 same like coupons in same shopping trip so I had to do multiple shopping trips there. Cost me .50 and .25 each tube. They expire in 11/15 and I know, you’re thinking how are we gonna use them all? Not a problem, my family and relatives in the Philippines will be happy to receive them.
Arm and Hammer spin brushes cost me $2.50 plus tax each after store sale, $8.99 at Kroger buy one get one free. I used four $2 manufacturer coupons for all of them. I have not seen such a price for battery-operated brushes like these. I am happy. I looked at the price of the same brush at Walgreens yesterday it is same at Kroger only not BOGO free.
My haul this morning are these 3.5 pounds bags dry dog food. Gladly, I did not throw away dog food coupons (buy one 3.5 lb beneful dog food get one free) for our dog Chicha was out of natural dog food. I’ve had these coupons for two weeks now but didn’t bother using them as I had no instruction from the husband to buy unnatural dog foods. Since we are out of dog food, he asked me last night if I could buy some and he even added, it would be nice if we could have some stocks of dog food so it won’t happen again.
Oh by the way, I bought six bags at Kroger at $6.29 each 2 paid bags and the other four at Walmart. Kroger is 81 cents more paid per bag but I earned fuel points for buying at their store while I don’t receive anything from Walmart in return.
A lot of avid Victoria’s Secret shoppers out there probably possess several secret reward cards and are wondering how are they gonna redeem them all before they expire. Are you one of them? Here is a deal idea for you that won’t let you spend big amount “out of pocket” since VS don’t allow using two or more secret reward cards in one transaction.
For first transaction, I’d suggest you go to their physical store and buy a PINK mist for $8 and a pair of PINK flip flops for only $5 (originally $14.50) with any PINK purchase for a limited time. Use $10 secret reward card, pay out of pocket $4+ tax. Each cost you $2, final price.
For second transaction, if you have that $10 off a bra and free cotton panty coupons, now is the best time to redeem them. Buy a pair of flip flops, PINK bra $29.99 or 2/$42 and pair it with a $10 secret reward card. Pay $15 or $27 plus tax.
However, if you don’t have a bra coupon, you should be fine doing with just transaction #1. Hurry though for the pink flip flops have only limited quantities, once they are gone… they’re gone in-store. You will be lucky if you shop online and you get your size but the only con though is that you have to pay for shipping fee.
