Walmart: Cheap Pantene, Garnier Fructis and Pillsbury

Found a fantastic deal on Pantene – thanks to a heads up on the smartcanucks.ca forum. I saw someone saying they found some $2 Pantene products at Walmart so I headed to mine to check it out. I didn’t find the ones they found but I was lucky enough to find 3 different ones priced at $2 – the deal was even sweeter because they had $1.50 stickers on them – better yet, they were the larger bottles at 675ml! Score! Regular price on the bottles was $7.96!

I am now very well stocked in face cleaners and creams! When I bought the Dial lotion I totally thought it was body wash… my bad. Hope it is as nice as the St. Ives.

Wish everything was priced like this:
$1 Shoppers Drug Mart Clearance

This Shoppers Drug Mart location has been pretty awesome with clearance deals in the last couple weeks. Think I might have to stick my head in there a little more often.

I am really excited about the Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Tone Correcting Concentrated Serum Night – I was Googling it while I was shopping and the reviews are great. I have been looking for a product like this for a little while now and they very pricey. This one is normally $28ish, so for $1 (or $4 because I bought 4) – I figured I couldn’t go wrong. I already tried it last night and it felt nice, too early to tell if its working yet though. I also tried the Garnier Pure Daily Purifying Pads last night too, really liked them. They seem like they will work really well for removing make up and cleansing. Plus they were cheaper then the make up removing cloths I have been buying from Dollarama and you get more. They felt great too – made my face feel so nice and clean. With all these deals I feel like I am turning into such a face cleaning/moisturizing snob… okay, I admit it – I probably am.

$0.50 Superstore Finds

Did pretty good at Superstore tonight – kinda sorta starting to see the appeal of Superstore to so many people. I might have to go a few more times this week and see if they add anything else! They had two bins with some stuff for 50 cents, I found a few things that appealed to me.

$0.50 Superstore Finds
$2.80 after tax!

2 x L’OrĂ©al Ombrelle Sport SPF 30 Clear Gel = $0.50 each
1 x Garnier Pure SOS Anti-Blemish Spot Pen = $0.50
1 x Revlon Expert Nail Groomer = $0.50
1 x Goody SoFinished Pillow Soft Rollers 20 pack = $0.50

Subtotal: $2.50
Tax: $0.30
Total: $2.80

I am not totally sure how much I saved, but after Googling and doing some rough math it looks like I saved approximately $50-$60. Looks like some of the stuff isn`t made anymore but the sunscreen alone used to go for around $18 a bottle.

Part of me thinks I should of got another bottle of two of sunscreen but the sane part of me says I won`t use more than two bottles before they expire anyway – they have a good date, but we really don`t use much sunscreen.

I also scored a two pack of king size pillows at HomeSense for $13 before tax – they look pretty nice and you can`t beat the price. It`s hard enough to find a single decent king size pillow for $13 – looking forward to trying them out tonight! Was super excited when I found them as I have been looking for pillows without spending a lot.

I also found this cute Scotch PINK high heel tape dispenser! Thought it might come in handy as I had to tape mine together while wrapping Christmas presents this past Christmas.

I need to play a little bit of catch up, I have a few posts to write that I just haven’t had time for in the past few days. I will be posting dates for these shops since I am a few days behind, because some of the coupons have since expired and deals may no longer be available – I don’t want there to be any confusion if someone wants the same deal.

I made this purchase on December 28, 2011 at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Boxing Day Shopping: Hallmark 2011 Keepsake Christmas Tree Ornaments 50% Off

This post is a few days late…

I braved the malls on boxing day mostly for one thing, Hallmark. I was there first thing to get dibs on all the half price keepsake ornaments. Even at 50% off they are still on the pricier side, but you have to indulged sometimes.

While I was out I did get a couple other things but I just wanted to share the decorations I picked up because I love them so much.

As you can see I seriously have a problem with the Hallmark decorations. I may have went a bit overboard… may. I also bought Gizmo earlier in the year, happy I did because they were sold out on boxing day. Have also spent some time on eBay buying up a few of the Star Wars ships for my fiance. We really do have a pretty kick ass Christmas tree!

There is a couple more I have my eye on, but only if I can get them 75% off.

Other than Hallmark I picked up a few candles 75% off at Bath and Body Works – I love Bath and Body Works!

FREE Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Soothing Wrap Body Lotion For Buying Cheap O.B. Tampons

Can I just say I REALLY REALLY love London Drugs. The staff there is so amazing and friendly and helpful and the deals – WOW. Wish I had of started shopping there years ago… also wish I had of started couponing sooner – but don’t we all. Super excited for today’s sore – the toilet paper was whatever, I only have two rolls left and don’t want to run out. Gonna try and get some at Shoppers Drug Mart on their Sunday/Monday deals. Anyway on to today.

I couldn’t find the right free gift with purchase. The coupon for the FREE Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Soothing Wrap Body Lotion was in front of the wrong-but-almost the same product so I made the mistake at first of trying to buy it. Everyone was really nice in helping me find the right product – turns out it was at the customer service desk because it is not something they keep in stock! phew, I thought maybe they had run out already. Anyway they found it for me. What a deal on it’s own, buy $2.99 tampons and get a free $10 body lotion? To top it off I had a $2.00 off coupon for the O.B. making them $0.99! The lotions are perfect for my Mom and Grandma’s stocking!

Seriously super excited about today’s shop. It’s not my highest savings or anything so I dunno why but it was awesome. :)

Happy weekend everyone!

Free Dove, Cheap OB Tampons, Oasis Juice & Duracell Rechargeable Batteries

Got some pretty good shopping trips in this weekend. Went into Shoppers Drug Mart to get a couple things and use some coupons. Both things I went in for had the sale tags on the wrong items. Whoever did the pricing must of been half asleep! Not that I am complaining, I got even better deals!

SDM had Duracell Mini Recharges on sale for $6.88 and I had a $5 coupon from P&G – but when we I went to get them they had put the sale on tag on the regular charger that recharges 4 batteries at a time! SCORE, I no longer need to use two outlets to charge my keyboard batteries – even better, they came with 4 batteries for $1.88 plus tax! The ones in the charger are the black tops – the white tops are better, but I don’t care for the price. So excited, I was even able to get two! I also went to pick up some of the OB tampons for $1.99 and they had marked the 40 boxes for $1.99 – it was supposed to be the 18’s. I bought two but couldn’t use my coupon because they were on sale (coupon says regular price). Price was still awesome. Maybe I should of got more then 2 boxes…

I was really impressed with Shoppers Drug Mart for honouring their errors. They did have to confirm the stickers on the products and they did admit their error – because they tagged the wrong items I could not SCOP (scanning code of practice), but I could have it for the price listed. They also removed the tags from the shelves after me. I don’t know if they had to honour the price errors but they did and it make it super happy – even if I had to wait a bit. :)
