I love a good bargain! It seems logical that I would be a big coupon-user, but surprisingly, I NEVER use coupons! They just seem like such a hassle. I've watched the TV show "Extreme Couponing" and been amazed by the savings the participants got. Those cases are extreme, though, and those people spend all their time thinking of coupons. I can imagine a million things I'd rather do than clip and organize coupons. It just seems pointless to do all that work just to save a few cents. I have never had the patience for it.
But when I visited my dentist for my check-up last week, she gave me a few sets of coupons for Colgate products. They were for 50 cents off of Colgate toothbrushes and toothpaste, and $1.00 off of Colgate Total toothpaste. I immediately thought of the fact that they carry Colgate at the Dollar Tree, which is a store where all items are only one dollar.
I headed over there to rack up on some 50 cent oral hygiene products. The best part was, they actually had a small size of Colgate Total, which is not something they normally carry. Since I had three $1 dollar off coupons for Total I snagged three tubes for free!!! AWESOME.
This whole haul of items cost me only $1.50.
So, will I become an extreme couponer? I doubt it... but it was pretty cool getting such a good deal!
So, do you love or hate coupons? Have you gotten any good coupon deals lately?
