Fabric Softener, Target , Wal-Mart and a web cam - this is such an informative post!

Okay, so thanks to all of you (on my blog and myspace) for helping me out here. I have tried the dryer sheets and I'm just not getting the effect I want. So, I went ahead and bought the Downy Ball. It was on sale for $1.00 today, so that was easy! I'll let you know how good I smell in a few days!

This is quite possibly the BEST smelling fabric softener. EVER. (and no, unfortunately, I'm not getting paid to tell you this)
Secondly, check this out.
4 boxes of Smart Start Cereal - $4.00
10 ALL Small and Mighty Travel Size laundry detergents - $0.00
10 Boudreaux's Butt Paste Travel Size - -$0.10 (yes, that's a negative 10 cents)
10 Huggies Clean Team Wipes - $1.40
14 Johnson's Buddies Soap Bars - -$0.84 (negative 84 cents)

Total out of pocket - $4.46!

So, I'm going to make this easy for you. Print out the coupons below and get them all cut out and ready to go before your trip. Then, only buy the items below, so you can really see the impact the coupons make.

I took Lorelai with me and the two stops only took a total of 30 minutes; mainly because I forgot where I was going in the stores! whoops!

TWO MORE TIPS:

* Most manufacturer's don't limit your coupon usage per customer. However, if you go to the lane of the youngest person in the store, they usually won't give a second thought to your coupons. A lot of older people will stop and read every. single. coupon. to make sure you're not breaking any rules. Which, you aren't, but they still take FOREVER to look through them.

* Go ahead and print multiple coupons and clear out the shelves! That's what couponing is all about! You want to get your stock up. Our Smart Start doesn't expire until February of 2009!! Otherwise, I bought everything each store had. :-)

If you have any questions, leave me a comment, I'd be happy to help!!!

Lastly, I haven't done this yet, but you might want to check it out, if you want a webcam at a great price!!!

Thanks for putting the deals and coupon links in one place!

How did you print more than one of each coupon?

It would only let me print one of each product.

Love that softener - and I think that I am going to do the coupon shopping trip tomorrow! It just seems too amazing to pass up!

Hmmm... I think the only thing I could use is the butt paste.

Sorry, couldn't pass that up.

Mrs. L said...

I love Downy too! :)

Way to go on the coupons and the deals you found. I not so good at finding deals and your completely right about the finding the younger person compared the older person... the older person does take forever!

We have used downy balls in our washing machine to dispense softener for 4-5 years.

they work great & you should try one!
