Second Stop: Walgreens

So after my quick run to Rite-Aid, I ran up the road to Wags.  There really isn't much I need or want from the sales at any of my stores this week, honestly.  I think my house is very well stocked on most health and beauty items.  I have more body wash than I could possibly use in the next year.  I have a few months worth of shampoo and lotion (Though if I find a deal on lotion I would be happy as the older I get, the more I use lotion.  Like a lot!).  I've got a few months of all of my paper products, dish soap products and cleaning products.  And I have oral products to last until Kingdom come.  Ditto on deodorant.  I am giving excess away like candy still.  There really are only a few things I need to build up a better stock on right now. 

I have so many razors right now.  But I also realized after the last time I purchased this Gillette kit that I had a rare $5/1 coupon from that P&G mailed booklet.  After the RR, it was a tiny bit of a money maker (well that doesn't factor in tax so really it was not a money maker but it was still a rock bottom deal).  As these kits come with a razor, extra blade, shave cream, scrub and aftershave (the last two items I toss in my donate box), it's such a steal of a deal.  I have no qualms about using a men's razor and shave cream on my legs.  Who the heck cares?!

I picked up the razors those past two weeks along with the Dove deodorant too. I have tons of body wash too! I tend to stay away from body wash unless it's a money maker due to how many I have and I don't use it "that" fast!
