As grocery shoppers, we’ve been taught that if I buy bigger, we’re getting more for our money. This is not always true when you shop with coupons.
Here are a few ideas when buying smaller sized items to get them cheap or free:
Here are a few examples where watching for a sale and/or buying the smaller size item saves you more money:
Bargain BuysI got some great deals at Walgreens again this week! Today I bought Scott paper towels, a bag of Chip’ins (had a coupon and we’ve never tried these), 2 bags of Brach’s candy corn , 2 marshmallow Halloween candies, and three boxes of Capri Suns for a grand total of $5.82, and I got $2.50 in Register Rewards to use next time!! I used my coupons and some Register Rewards from last week to get this awesome deal! I could have also gotten more Halloween candy for as low as $1.49 a bag, but I think I am set for Halloween candy this year!
If you still have some Vics coupons that expire on 10-31, go to Walgreens and use them to get your free Vapodrops. You may also find “free” Colgate toothpaste (after in store coupon and RR), 50 cent boxes of Kleenex (10-2 SS and RR). These Walgreens deals are good through Saturday.
