Paying for Toothpaste?

Then you're doing it wrong.

It's a right of passage for every couponer to get FREE toothpaste.  And today marks the fourth month of my couponing journey. 

So far we've paid off the TV, bought a zine printer, saved a little, paid some debt, and bought a computer.  But Tim says he still doesn't have enough toilet paper in his bathroom.

And check it out, last week I landed 4 razors, 16 blades and 4 shaving gels for a total price of $5.20 (includes tax).  Actually $5.14 because the store owed me 6 cents in overage for the 2 free dental flosses I purchased as well.

How great is that?

Until next post, have a groovy day and oogie boogie night.

Single Toothpaste Breakdown:
$2.69 Regular Price (6.4oz/181g)

The entire lot cost $5.14 and includes, 4 razors,
16 blades, and 4 shaving creams.








I just made this Tim's new screensaver.

  3. You're right, I don't trust people that pay for toothpaste. I get mine by visiting nursing homes and pretending to be everyone's nephew. When they konk out from the over-excitement I take their toothpaste from the cabinet. Also the laxatives that look like chocolate. But then I have to steal generic loperamide tablets from Rite-Aid to counteract the effects. Keeps me busy.

  9. Elsie: I posted a comment on your blog with the Krazy Lady Coupon site, to get you started on the hunt for razor coupons.

    Happy Shopping :-)

    Alex: I am hoping not to pay for either, anymore. But we'll see.

    Haven't seen the Huntsman's yet, or is it Huntsmen? I dunno, can't remember. But I did enjoy the hunter in Avengers. Thought he did a great job.

    Saw Thor over the weekend as well. Liked him in that, didn't care for the script. Kind of bland.

    Ray: That would be very cool.

    Stacy: At least for the next year.

    Dan: Friends give me coupons from Sunday papers. I get a few papers. Then I also go online to print them, as well as sign up for newsletters and promos.

    Just this week I got my first ever free item sent to me. It was a toothpaste.

    But a different brand.

    Do you coupon? Or are you considering it? It is so MUCH fun.

    Cheers and boogie boogie.

    I see you waving your hand in front of the cahier's eyes like Obi-Wan Kenobi:

    "This is not the price you are asking for...I can have this product for free..."

    Hope you're cooking up a storm and enjoying your grill.

    Bard: I cannot believe I'm getting free stuff. It still blows my mind.

    Hope you and Mrs Bard are well.
