If you came over to visit you might think I have a small cleaning supply addiction.  We have so many paper towels that some live in the dining room, the laundry detergent has filled the cabinet and taken over the top of the washing machine, that’s probably just the tip of the iceberg.  I can’t seem to pass up a great deal on these items.  I know we will use them…

This week was pretty much cleaning supplies, yogurt and coffee.  I did run to three stores though to get the best of the best deal wise.


I made a blend of the great Pantene & Paper Goods deals.  Here’s what we bought:

(3) Pantene Hair Care, 3 for $12
(1) Charmin Bath Tissue, 12 dbl rolls, $9.99
(3) Dawn Dish Soap, 99¢
-$5/3 Pantene products, PG 02/26
-$2/3 Pantene (CVS coupon) printing at CVS coupon printer
-$1 off Charmin Ultra Soft or Strong, 16 dbl roll, printable
(3) -.25/1 Dawn product, excl trial size, PG 02/26
-$10 ECB (from previous weeks)
Total Due: $6.21
Got Back: $7 ECB


Coming with a plan for the $15 off $50 household coupon is a like a math game for me and I just couldn’t resist.  I used mostly coupons from last weeks P&G insert and stocked up on Febreze items and Tide. I shared our breakdown and the coupons along with three other deal ideas last night.

Total Purchase Value: $51.47
Total Spent: $15.71
Total Saved: $35.76 or 70%


This was our bigger trip for the week.  I grabbed more laundry detergent, because I couldn’t possibly pass up Tide for $1.11 a bottle, and also got a number of the BOGOs for the week.  Oh, and don’t forget k-cups at $3.09 per pack!  See my official shopping list.

Total Purchase Value: $171.53
Total Spent: $45.81
Total Saved: $125.72 or 73%

I also left with 43¢ in fuelperks thanks to the Tide and Swiffer deals mostly.  That’s equal to $8.60 off our next gas fill up.
