Head over to CVS and pick up the new Schick Hydro razor. Submit the Schick Hydro rebate form to get up to $10.99 back in the form of a rebate check by mail. There was a $5/1 coupon in last Sunday's newspaper and CVS has an Extra Buck reward, making this a super sweet deal! Here's what it looks like:
Buy Schick Hydro Razor for $8.97
Use $5/1 coupon from the 6/13 Smart Source insert
Get $4 EB back
Spend $3.97 out of pocket, get $4 to spend on next purchase, and submit for rebate to get $8.97 back
That means this one is a $9 MONEYMAKER!!!
Using coupons is a great way to get food, household supplies, and personal care items for free or nearly free. I'll show you the most effective (and still ethical) way to use coupons. They're incentives by the manufacturer and the stores to get you to buy certain products, and when you combine offers by manufacturers and stores you can get great deals! It's my favorite way to stretch my grocery and household budgets!
There is a great tea freebie at Teasta. Put two of their sample size packages in your cart and use code TRYME when you check out. They're originally priced at $3.15 each but will come up free with the code. You can also get free shipping by choosing the free shipping option when you check out. You do need to register to get the freebies shipped to you, but you do NOT have to enter any credit card info. The website says each sample pack has 2-3 servings, so this is a high-value freebie!
I am so excited to begin blogging about living frugally in the high-cost world of California. Too often we are caught in up "keeping up with the Joneses," needing to have the latest and greatest of everything. I'm going to be blogging about how I live abundantly within my means and all the tips and tricks I use to maintain a frugal, debt-free lifestyle. So come on board, there's a lot more to come!
I will be posting various tips and tricks for frugal living. Topics to come include:
- Cooking healthy, nutritious meals on a budget
- Keeping a clean, chemical-free home for cheap
- Frugal lifestyle choices
- Growing your own frugal garden
- And much, much more!
