I am now not allowed to buy laundry fabric softener unless it is totally FREE for the next year. Because just look at what came home with me from Target yesterday. It's a bit ridiculous. But I'd be even crazier to have not taken advantage of these deals.
So the Gain wasn't amazing. In the end I paid $1.19/bottle. But I love Gain and my $3/1 coupons were expiring today. That's still a good deal though. The fancy pants Purex...all FREE!! Let me say it again....F R E E!!!!! My store shelf was still marked at the normal price (I think $4.49?) but I used the fabulous red scanner thingy (clearly the very technical term) and verified that they were in fact on sale for $2.99. I used the $1/1 Target coupon and the $2/1 manufacturer coupon from several Sunday's ago to get them for FREE! Once again, I had an amazing cashier who graciously let me do all of this in a single transaction, instead of the six that might normally be required. And would you believe that for the first time ever, not a single thing beeped!! The coupon gods must know I'm sick and didn't have the energy to fight a coupon battle today.
Here's what I bought and their non-sale prices....
(4) Gain Fabric Softener - $4.19
(6) Purex Crystals Fabric Softener - $4.49
(6) Sobe Life Water - $1.34
(1) Excedrin - $3.34
(3) Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner - $2 (I think?)
- (4) $3/1 Gain coupons
- (6) $1/1 Target print Purex Crystals coupons
- (6) $2/1 manufacturer Purex Crystals coupons
- (6) $0.50/1 Target print Sobe Life Water coupons
- (1) $3/1 Target print Excedrin coupon
- (1) $1/1 manufacturer Excedrin coupon
- (3) $1/1 Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner coupons
After store sales, store coupons and manufacturer coupons, I paid $12.05!! That's a savings of over 80%!! Hot damn, that felt good! It is such a happy feeling to realize that I don't need to spend another dime on laundry supplies for the next year too. Love that! I think that I have a full year of (or more) of fabric softener and at least 9 months of detergent and color booster (Oxi/Tide) and probably paid around $30 for all of it.
