I don’t pay for razors or toothpaste anymore…

I get them for free! No, not the infamous 5-finger discount, but just watching sales and using coupons wisely.

I’m not an extreme couponer. I actually saw a special on that recently, and I was shocked. People spend 40 or more hours couponing each week. They have stockpiles of things that will last them years, all because they got them for a good price or free. There was even someone with cases and cases of diapers and kitty litter. Only she didn’t have kids or a cat. Hmmm…

Anyway, I have a CVS nearby, although this strategy works for Walgreens and Rite Aid, too (here is a good resource to start with finding these and many, many more great deals at CVS, Walgreens, or Rite Aid). I simply watch for these items to go on sale for free or for what I have a coupon for, and then I only buy them then. I actually have enough toothpaste for quite a while, so I’ve stopped bringing them home and started donating. Sometimes I even make a little money on these purchases!

Razors and toothpaste are the easiest to break into IMHO. You can’t be too brand specific, but you can get the expensive brands for free. Easily and regularly! I also don’t pay more than $1 for most brands of shampoo, and get makeup at drastically reduced prices (sale plus store coupon plus manufacturer’s coupon). And more. This is a kind of like a game to me, and it’s fun to see how much I can save–without becoming an extreme couponer.

Because no one should have to pay for razors or toothpaste! 😉
