HELLO again! Back to the DEALS!

I have been MIA for a few months, but all for good reasons! Just a quick life update… I got engaged in early June to my boyfriend of almost five years! We went on vacation, sold our last house, packed up our belongings (including my stockpile) and we moved. We are currently living in a one-bedroom “apartment” while we build a new home together!

In between all of this chaos, I’ve managed to maintain a 3.90 GPA in my online master’s program. I’ve also started an internship with my company’s Communications team, and I’m still fulfilling my current job roles. It’s been a crazy last few months, and with the limited space, I haven’t been able to coupon much.

I’ve got most of my stockpile crammed into a huge Rubbermaid tote, but some is currently in storage. It’s so nice being able to save money and to live off of the stockpile while our new home is being built. I mean, that’s why I started couponing anyway!

I kept reading about the deal I’m about to share with you, and I couldn’t pass it up! There was still room in the stockpile tote, so I absolutely feel like I made up for all of the lost time! In one week, I managed to score 20 bottles of shampoo and conditioner for FREE! Here’s how I did it:

14572162_10208152302458004_7897793590918255651_n.jpgBuy 4 Tresemme at $4.99 (or $3.99) = $19.96
Earn a $5 GC for buying 4 Tresemme items
Use $5 GC coupon WYS $15 in personal care
Use 2 $5/2 Tresemme coupons = -$10.00
Pay: $9.96
Get back 2 $5 GCs
Net: FREE + 4¢ MM
***I also submitted for $3 WYB 2 Tresemme SavingStar offer

Buy 4 Gillette shave gels @ $1.97 = $7.88
Buy 2 Purrell Naturals @ $3.99 = $7.98
Use $5/$15 in-ad Target GC coupon
Use 4 $2/1 Gillette coupon = -$7.88
Use 2 75¢/1 Purrell IP = -$1.50
Pay: $6.48
Get back $5 GC
Net: $1.48 or 74¢ for each Purrell

I did the Tresemme deal five times and the Purrell/Gillette deal twice. I couldn’t use the $5/$15 in-ad GC coupon more than once per transaction, and the store limited it to two per day. Needless to say, I went to Target multiple times this week!


When all was said and done, I got 20 bottles of shampoo and conditioner for free. I got 10 cans of Gillette shave gel for free. And I scored four bottles of Purrell hand sanitizer for 74¢ each! (Note: Not all items are pictured. I put all of my items away one night before taking a photo.)

FREE Drinks – Mini CVS Haul

Last week my mom gave me her unused SS 4/17 insert, which included a BOGO free coupon for the 12.5 oz. bottles of Garnier’s new Whole Blend shampoo & conditioner. I also got an email from CVS with a $2 off coupon for any Garnier Whole Blends shampoo, conditioner, or treatment. I have been so anxious to try it, so I went to CVS last night. And although my trip didn’t go as planned, I still scored some great deals!
