First of all, when I checked my mailbox on Monday, I was delighted! I sign up for various freebies and on that particular day, my mailbox was overflowing with them!!! Here is what I got - just in the mail - on Monday!
Secret deodorant sample
2 pads, 2 liners, 3 tampons
Special K protein bar
Coupon for a FREE 18 pack of Always pads
$2 off coupon for a box of tampons
Coupon for FREE Tropicana orange juice
High value coupons for Special K cereal or protein bars
I took advantage of the Medco deal that Money Saving Mom posted about last week ($10 off a $10 purchase with $.99 shipping). So, when the UPS man came on Monday, I added the following to my stash:
For around $2.50, I purchased:
2 Men's Old Spice Body wash
2 Men's Gillette deodorant
1 ELF blush
1 ELF mascara
It doesn't stop there either! On Tuesday evening, my friend Alysia and I got together and figured out our CVS scenarios. We didn't end up going shopping until later in the week, but we did all of the planning to get these products:
9 rolls of Charmin toilet paper
Cascade dishwasher soap
4 bottles of Windex multi-purpose spray
1 Dawn soap
1 Aussie shampoo
2 Pantene Pro-V shampoos
2 packs of Always pads
3 Skinny Cow ice cream cups
1 Gillette Fusion razor
6 Dove deodorants
2 Colgate toothpastes
I got all of it for right around $14 out-of-pocket - PLUS I have $7 left toward my CVS purchases next week and a $5 cash rebate coming in the mail. If you even that all out, I will have spent around $1 for all of that stuff - things that I will put to great to use!!
I have a few more Medco orders still coming, but I won't bore you with all of those details. It has definitely taken some time to do this, but I feel like it is SO worth it because of the money we are saving - big time.
So, do you get into doing coupons and deals? Do you sign up for freebies? Why or why not? I'd love to hear!
