K and I had to go to the big box today to pick up some photos. We also had a big need for razors (despite it being winter and all) and Hubs needed lotion. I always dread the razor aisle. Truly, I hate to spend what they want, but unless I want to go around with my legs looking like they came off of Chewbacca, something needs to happen.
K and I went to peruse the razors and like a ray of light, there was an unexpired coupon for $3. off of a pack of razors. Angels sang. Lights brightened. We found what we needed and happily tucked that $3. coupon into the basket, but underneath the razors so that it wouldn't blow away. We went on to the lotion that Hubs needed and there was a $2. coupon off of one of the giant bottles of lotion he wanted. Hooray!
I was able to save $5. on things I needed and didn't even expect to get that savings. I went on and picked up an eyeliner for the amount that I saved. Since it is the eyeliner that twists out of the plastic pencil that holds it and they don't give a warning stripe, so when you are out, you are left to scrape your eye with stubbbins until you get to the store again. I see that happening soon, so I'm glad to have an extra on hand.
The $3. coupon was as if someone was standing there and just handed me three dollars. I was stunned, appreciative and taught K that sometimes the shelf coupons are definitely something to look at. The $2 coupon was rubberbanded to the lotion bottle, so I taught K that it doesn't hurt to look at the stock that hangs out behind.
Keep it up random coupon depositors! Thanks for the Christmastime tip!
