Some of you may have heard that my new found love and challenge in my life is couponing. Some of you have been asking questions about where I get the info on good deals, where I shop, etc. I cannot take credit for my knowledge in this area. In November, I took a class through a lady in town. You can find her info on www.retirewithcoupons.com. It is well worth the money to learn all the tricks, store policies, etc. I also use several websites that do all the coupon match ups for me...so I really don't do much of the work on my own. For me personally, I want the deals that are the best deals - which to me are free or cost next to nothing. If buying something with a coupon is not cheaper than Aldi, I won't buy it (unless Aldi doesn't carry it or I don't like Aldi's version). Some items I got last week are: 4 FREE cans of Oust air freshner, .25 cent toothpaste (Colgate), .69 cent Juicy Juice, $1.49 hair color, and the best one is Walgreens paid me a $1 by purchasing Neosporin lip balm. So, it is really worth it. Some sites I review daily are www.hip2save.com and www.agentcoupon.com. I also like www.attentiontargetshoppers.com. There are many many sites out there. The sites I use are the ones I feel have prices and stores that closely match ours. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, but I didn't want to recreate the wheel that some "pros" out there have already created. Many people out there have created some great sources/sites for this info.
One deal I did find this week that I haven't seen on any sites is on hair color at CVS. This is something I use to never do on my own until I saw how easy and cheaper it is to do at home! Of course I didn't start coloring my hair until about 6 months ago when I discovered many gray hairs!! YIKES! Okay...so hair color at CVS. They have Natural Instincts hair color on sale for 5.99...by purchasing it, you get $2.00 off your next purchase (which can be done same day - just separate transactions)...so we're down to 3.99. Then the Sunday paper has a $2.00 off coupon for the same brand bringing it down to $1.99!!!
