Cheap Olay Total Effects – Moisturizer, Dark Circle Minimizing Brush, Wet Cleansing Cloths

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.

Super Cheap Oral B ProfessionalCare 5500

Found these on clearance at Shoppers Drug Mart – they had a few different ones, some higher end ones for $10 more but I just wanted them for the heads. I already have the toothbrushes and it worked out cheaper to buy heads this way because of the $10 off coupon.

I had a few different coupons, some were from inserts and one came with a PG Sampler pack I think. My Mom used one of my other coupons and got herself a toothbrush too :)

Between the two I got 6 toothbrush heads for $30.40 after tax. The cheapest these are normally is $37.99 for 7 at Costco before tax. Or $19.99 (before tax) for 3 at Walmart. Shopper Drugs Mart sells 3 heads for $30! OUCH!

Anyway, really happy with this deal – was in need of the toothbrush heads badly!

Got bacon using the free coupon from WebSaver (no longer available) and used saved $5 when you buy 2 O.B. products (found it while cleaning out coupons). I am well stocked in feminine products now, it is so hard to resist when they are so cheap but I should have enough to last me almost two years now. Thankfully they come in such small boxes they are easy to store.

I love FREE stuff. Have had a really good free week: pomegranates, O.B., aveeno and bacon! Really starting to get the hang of getting stuff free. :D haha

Free Neutrogena & Listerine – Cheap O.B., Multibionta & L’Oréal

Went back to London Drugs to get more cheap O.B. tampons and free Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Soothing Wrap Body Lotion – unfortunately you weren’t supposed to be able to stack coupons according to the wording on the in store London Drugs coupons for the Neutrogena. Oops. The cashier pointed it out today – guess I need to read the coupons a little closer. So I did one and one, found a 20 pack of tampons in there today for the $2.99 price.

Free Olay Body Wash – Cheap Tylenol and Scrubbing Bubbles

Was in Save on Foods tonight and got super excited when I saw some Olay Body Wash priced at $2.99 – I figured it was perfect to use my $2.00 coupon from P&G. I grabbed two of them – great stocking stuffers, but when I got to the till they rang is as $3.99. After checking the price they let me SCOP (scanning code of practice = FREE) one and buy the second at $2.99. But they wouldn’t let me use the coupon – the wording on the coupon says “Save $2.00 when you buy any Olay hand and body product” so they told me I had to buy two products a body product and a hand product – wouldn’t the coupon say productS or when you buy 2 then? So confused on this still, I think I should of been able to use it for ONE body wash. Does anyone have any idea on this?

The lady was great – she even was the one to suggest SCOP – and it was tagged wrong so I can’t go back and try my coupon again. But I did get one FREE and another cheap Scrubbing Bubbles 1 Step Toilet Kit. Actually got one of these hooked up a couple weeks ago and I like it! So far my toilet seems nice and clean. I have never had a cashier suggest SCOP to me before, I always have to ask for it and in this case of might of *gasp* forgot!

FREE Advil Cold and Sinus, Listerine Whitening and L’Oreal Man Expert

What a day! Checking Wal-Mart for the past few days paid off – they had more L’Oreal Man Expert Shaving Cream trial sizes in stock so thought I would use my last 4 coupons since I already had them printed. They also had the 10 packs of Advil Cold and Sinus in stock too. Picked up a couple things at Shoppers Drug Mart too. I think this is starting to become a bit of a problem… I can’t stay out of the stores and stop looking for good prices! I think I should be good for a while though. I would love to see another Dove sale but otherwise I have used most of the coupons I wanted to. I say that now though… haha.

It really is hard to say no to something when you are only paying tax. Today I got Listerine Whitening plus Restoring, Advil Cold and Sinus and L’Oreal Man Expert Shaving Cream all for pretty much FREE – I only had to pay the tax, but the overage even helped cover some of the taxes.

My Wal-Mart trip ALMOST felt like extreme couponing but in Canada!

Deodorant, Soap and Free Samples

A catch up from the weekend.

On Friday I got my brandSAMPLER (none available right now) package in the mail. I love free samples! It had a free razor so I consider it pretty awesome but it wasn’t the best one I have ever received.

On Saturday I happened to be in Zellers and noticed the Degree Deodorant was on for $1.49 and I had a coupon for 50 cents off so I picked up two. I probably would of known this in advance if I had of been paying closer attention to the other websites coupon match ups (like here and here) but I never shop at Zellers so I don’t take much notice to what they have on sale. I probably should pay more attention. I picked out my Degree Deodorant in two fancy scents, Orange Flower Cranberry and Honeysuckle – they both smell really good.

On Sunday I was in Shoppers and picked up some Lever 2000 bar soap – pack of 4. It smells pretty good – I got the Citrus Fresh Scent. Hope it isn’t too drying. Guess I will find out.

All in all I didn’t spend much this weekend – so that is a good thing!

Coupons and Freebies

My first day with a blog and I already have some cool things to post. Well they are cool for me.

Today during our lunch break my friend/coworker and I walked down to the local Shoppers Drug Mart to browse. While down there we manged to find a couple decent deals to try out our newb couponing skills.

I have only tried my hand in couponing two or three other times – so this really is new to me. I am not really interested in building a stock pile and taking up half my house with stuff I will never use all of. If there is a good deal and it is something we use I might buy a few (guess it depends how long said item lasts) – but I don’t want to store and move this stuff around for the rest of my life. Stuff will always go on sale and there will always be coupons – I really don’t need to fill my house with enough supplies to open a store.

On to today’s find:

1 x U by Kotex Tampons (18’s) @ $2.99 – $1.50 coupon = $1.49
1 x U by Kotex Liners (18’s – trial size) @ 1.99 – $1.50 coupon = $0.49
1 x L’Oréal Studio Hair Paste @ 2.99 – $2.00 coupon from tear pads = $0.99

Subtotal: $2.97
Tax: $0.61
Total: $3.57
Saved: $7.00

I never in all my life would of though I would one day upload a photo of feminine hygiene products on the internet. Kinda weird.

When I came home from work today I had TWO freebies waiting for me. Two incredibly AWESOME freebies might I add. This doesn’t happy often or ever, especially like this. Perfect timing for the new blog. Super excited to try these out.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra 40ml
Tassimo Gevalia Dark House Blend T DISCs (12)

Both of these products came from Facebook offers. The La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra came from their Facebook page – you had to tell them about your sensitive skin and they picked 1000 people to receive the product.

As for the Tassimo Gevalia Dark House Blend T DISCs – you simply had to be the first of so many people to like their Facebook page (and fill out the form) to receive the T DISCs. Pretty sweet – I was expecting one to try not a full package of 12! Super awesome and packaged so nicely.

Looking forward to trying both of these products out!
