[QUOTE=VioletVol;875639]I have really been using coupons! I know a lot of people don't like dealing with them, but with the wedding I really need to. If you pay attention to a coupon site it will tell you the upcoming deals. Obviously I need more than one, so I order coupons on ebay then stock up. I have been able to get free (just pay tax) shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body wash, deoderant, razors, tylenol, first aid kits, and much more. Walgreens is my favorite place, but sometimes Walmart is a good deal. The trick with coupons is to avoid buying in bulk. Instead buy the trial size. For example a trial size body wash was $1 and I had a $1 coupon (printable online). Make sure the coupon does not exclude trial sizes, but other than that you're good to go. Walgreens has register rewards which are like an instant rebate. i.e. buy toothpaste 1.99 & get $2 back in register rewards. You can't use that RR on another tube of toothpaste because it will not give you another one. But you can keep buying the toothpaste (one at a time). I got free chapstick this way. Yes I paid full price out of pocket, but I had lots of $2 rewards then. I used those rewards on other things I needed and were going to buy anyway. I could go on and on, but I know a lot of people really just think its too complicated. It feels it at first, but really I just read a coupon site, find the deals I need, find the coupons, then go, and go, and go. I feel like I'm going to be able to give some wonderful bags for not much money. I think I am getting some cheap sunblock in a couple weeks at Walgreens and I am pretty sure I saw free aloe sometime in August. Walgreens also has t-shirts 5 for $10. I am trying to use my register rewards to buy the t-shirts and then I will iron on my logo.[/QUOT
Can you PM me the coupon site you are using??
