Sometimes I amaze myself. Hehe, I never thought it would be possible to be so giddy about saving SO much on something, the majority of which you will never use. Yes, I had made the vow that I would only use my couponing powers toward USEFUL things that I actually NEED. But sometimes I can’t help myself! The deal is too good!! And sometimes I can make money off the ridiculously good deals on Ebay, so that’s enough justification for me :)

Behold my January purchases from Walgreens:

My Jan. 07 Walgreens freebies: (4) 24 ct Aleve, (4) Mentadent toothpastes, (2) Glade Plugin Scented Oil Warmers, (3) Joint Juice, (6) packages Stayfree, (1) BreathRx Sugar-Free Mints, (6) L’Oreal HiP Foundations, & various SAMY and Garnier Fructis hair care products.

I got all of the above for FREE or better.  For example, I got paid $17 to buy the Stayfree, Joint Juice, and BreathRX after rebates and coupons.

This would be a rather ho-hum typical Walgreens month, if it weren’t for the crazy good deal I came across on Thursday. I made my weekly stop at my favorite Walgreens, and noticed that there was a huge clearance table out with a ton of marked down goodies. Upon closer inspection, I found that there was a ton of SAMY and Garnier Fructis products marked down to $2 or less. There just so happened to be coupons in the Walgreens EasySaver (the in-store coupon booklet) for $2 on SAMY products and $1 on Garnier Fructis products. So that made all the SAMY products free right off the bat! I also had a ton of $1 Garnier Fructis coupons at home, so I ran home, gathered all of my coupons and went back. The L’Oreal HiP foundation, normally $12.99, was also marked down for clearance to $3.29 and Buy One Get One Free, and there was also a coupon in the Walgreens EasySaver for $2 off L’oreal Hip — which could be used limitless times. So for every two HiP foundations you bought, you were paid $0.70 right off the bat. Plus I had a coupon at home for $2 off L’Oreal HiP, so I made $2.70 on one of them.

Anyhow, after I went home and gathered my coupons, I pretty much wiped them all out of those items. Luckily I was buying some other things, so I used the negative amounts to my full advantage, and even after tax, I only ended up paying $2-3 for the whole lot!! I received $47.92 of SAMY Salon Systems Products, $23.94 of Garnier Fructis products, and $77.94 of L’Oreal HiP Foundations — that’s $149.80 worth of products for FREE!!! AMAZING!!

And since I don’t use hair products and I’m particular about my conditioner, and I definitely don’t use foundation, I put it all on Ebay in one big lot, and it got bid on almost immediately. So I have already made $10 (at least) off the stuff. Which isn’t nearly as satisfying as the crazy high I got from seeing all that savings at the bottom of my receipt.

The Best Deal of All: $150 of products for FREE

    What did the spyware you had on your machine, listening on port 1025 and apparently editing web pages as they come in, end up being?

    I haven’t a clue? Apparently you know more about this than I do?
