Announcing: Extreme Couponing eSeries


If you’ve been to my Extreme Couponing Class, you know that I cover a lot of material in a short amount of time. You might benefit from reading my Extreme Couponing 101 tutorial as it streamlines the material taught in the class.

 

Additionally, I am launching an ongoing Extreme Couponing eSeries here at Simply Frugal Living to allow me to pass on small bits of couponing information in bite-size chunks. I’ll use my mini-Walgreens shopping trip as a classroom opportunity today.

 

I came to the end of my baby wipe “stockpile”, so I’ve been looking for rock-bottom prices both in stores and on Amazon Mom (See all Diaper Wipes & Refills).

 

Here is the best deal I’ve seen so far: through Saturday, September 17, Walgreens has Huggies wipes on sale for $4.99 ($.02/ wipe if you buy the Natural Care package with 216 wipes). My goal is always to pay no more than $.01/ wipe. Still, $4.99 isn’t too bad, so I thought of a way to sweeten the deal. Here’s my scenario:

Transaction #1:

Buy Crest Toothpaste, $1.99

Use Crest Toothpaste or Liquid Gel $1/1 8/28/2011 P&G Insert (exp 9/30/2011)

$1 RR (limit 1)

Final price: $.99 OOP

 

I don’t currently need toothpaste (I will eventually), but since I could get $1 RR to use on my Huggies wipes for it, I decided to make the purchase.

 

Transaction #2:

Huggies Wipes, $4.99

$1 RR from transaction #1

Huggies Diapers Big Pack or Wipes $2/1 2/1/2011 Walgreens Infant Care Booklet (exp 12/31/2011) (I didn’t have access to this)

Final price: as low as $1.99 (I paid $3.99 OOP)

 

So, for a total of $4.98 OOP, I scored both the toothpaste and baby wipes. If I had the Walgreens Infanct Care Booklet I would have paid just $2.98 OOP.

I mentioned that I didn’t currently need the toothpaste, but purchasing it allowed me to get two items for the amount I would have paid for the Huggies wipes alone. The scenario required two transactions, but it was super easy!
