Right Guard Deoderant B1G1F deal. $2.99-$2 mc= 2/.99 or .45 ea!

Colgate Toothbrushes $10.97-$5 ECB- $1.50 mf= 3/$4.47 or $1.49 each. (deal was not as good as expected because I thought there would be $1.99 toothbrushes and there weren’t.) 🙁

  1. Good Job. I have found if they don’t have the deal item I just wait and come back or just skip it completely like the tooth brushes. Its only a deal when you get that sale item. It takes practice and the right mind set. Like you can’t get excited and just buy whatever. I have done it and have to practice it wkly when I go shopping. I always ask if they have more and if they know when more are coming in. I missed out on shaving gel this wkend and was disappointed which is so funny. I already have 3 at home. But it is something I go thru in the summer.

  2. Good Job.I did a publix trip this morning and the bill was 153.00 after coupons it was 48.00!!!!!!I love coupons
