Extreme Couponing!

Last week there was a documentary on TLC about people who do Extreme Couponing. These people built up major stock piles of items in their homes and also purchased in large quantities - one guy bought over 1000 boxes of cereal and with his coupons got them all for free! (He donated the cereal to a food bank).

I have been continuing my couponing (although I hardly would consider it extreme). I have had some great deals on diapers and wipes (large box of diapers and large container of wipes for $10). In honor of the Extreme Couponing show I wanted to share my latest great deal (no pictures as the "stock" has been given out already lol)

Recently Walmart had a deal on Old Spice and Gillette deodorant @ $2 each. My brother uses the Old Spice brand and hubby uses Gillette so I took this as the perfect time to stock up for them. I had Old Spice coupons for buy two Old Spice products get $3 off AND I had coupons for buy one Old Spice Deo and get a body wash for free. So for $1 I got two deodorant and two body wash. A great deal!

The Gillette deal was just as good. Coupons for buy three gilette products and get $5 off plus the buy one deo get one body wash for free so for $1 three gillette deo and three body wash!

I was able to buy enough to stock up my hubby, brother and cousin for the year. Also had some body washes to wrap up for stocking stuffers for the men in my life. I donated some more to Siloam Mission and am giving some to the Dubois family ( a local family that recently suffered a terrible accident).

Not going to lie, I did get a bit of a thrill at getting such a good deal but rest assured I am miles away from becoming an Extreme couponer!


  1. Welcome back! You have had a very busy week! Tons of posts. I was thinking you hadn't been crafting...but here you were saving up all these wonderful posts. Wow! Here's to 2011!

  2. I have been pretty busy! Trying to maximize the last of my maternity leave I guess :-) I hired someone to clean my house before Christmas and it was the best money I've spent all year. I felt no guilt in spending all of my free time crafting instead of cleaning! I highly recommend it!
