Today was a pretty good day – ended up using some free product coupons that I hadn’t planned on.
First off, the Lean Cuisine Canada Facebook page currently has a coupon for a free Lean Cuisine meal! I went down to Shoppers Drug Mart during my lunch break to pick mine up – while I was there I saw the Smartwater so I used my two free product coupons on those as well. Free lunch. :)
Paid $0.16 (deposit) - Saved $6.47 - 98% Savings
2 x Smartwater Bottled Water – 2 x Free Product Coupon from Websaver (no long available) = FREE
1 x Lean Cuisine Meat Lasagna = Free Product Coupon = FREE
After work I headed to Thrifty foods and took advantage of their buy on get one free offer on Sunlight laundry detergent. Of course I used my two free product coupons and got four bottles FREE!
2 x Sunlight HE Laundry Soap 32 Loads Morning Fresh – 2 x free product coupons from pins (no long available) = FREE
2 x Sunlight HE Laundry Soap 32 Loads Morning Fresh – buy one get one free in store offer = FREE
So all in all today I spent $1.84 and saved $34.43 that is 95% savings. I think I am really starting to get the hang of this. :) I did also go to Bath and Body Works and pick up some more 75% candles! I love their candles so much.
Was back at Walmart looking for a deal I never did find. But I did decide to stalk up on some more Scrubbing Bubbles and Ziplock bags while I was there. I think I am well stocked in bathroom cleaner for at least two years now, seriously. So much bathroom cleaner. I did really need Ziplock bags but I use them lots and I had my coupon so I figure two boxes wouldn’t kill me.
A week or two ago Canadian Tire had 40 count Ziplock bags on for $1.00 – perfect to be paired up with my $2.00 WUB2 coupon. But when I went to get them they were taking rain cheques because the order never came in. I put my name down but haven’t heard anything since. I do still have one coupon, so here is to hoping.
Did this shop December 31, 2011.
2 x Ziplock Sandwich Bags 100 count $2.47 – $2.00 WUB2 magazine coupon = $1.47 each
2 x Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner Fresh Scent $3.00 – B1G1 free insert coupon = $1.50 each
2 x Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner Citrus Action $3.00 – B1G1 free insert coupon = $1.50 each
Happened to be at Wal-Mart today and they had more L’Oreal Man Expert samples in stock so I got 5 more. I used my 6th coupon on a full size bottle and used my overage to pay for the difference and something else I needed. OOP I paid 3.55 and saved $18.
I also went back to London Drugs and got another Scrubbing Bubbles Soap Scum cleaner for $1.99 and a free bottle of fantastic. Same thing I did yesterday. I should’ve just got it when I was there but I didn’t think I needed it then decided I might as well and my coupons expire in two days. I paid $2.79 and saved $4.69.
Starting to see how this easily gets out of hand and how people ends up with so much stuff. Starting to think maybe I am going over board. But another way to look at it is I spent the cost of one bottle of the Scrubbing Bubbles Soap Scum Cleaner and got two and two bottles of fantastic. I would of bought that one bottle anyway – I use it often.
The Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean is a bit of a different story – I may not have bought that, haven’t seen it before – but I got 8 bottles (4 and 4 refills) for the less than the price of one.
Anyway, I am very well stocked in cleaning supplies now. I did try out the Extend-A-Clean yesterday and it seems to use a lot in one go. Might be for the best I have 10 bottles haha.
I didn’t bother posting a photo and breakdowns today since I have posted about both of these in the past few days.
I seriously LOVE Peek Freans Fruit Cream cookies. They are by far my favourtie boxed cookie – I always look forward to having them after I donate blood. It’s going to be a hard choice between getting 2 Fruit Cream boxes or trying something else…
