Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”- Mark Twain

Stocking Up When the Price is Right Keeps Me From Going Over the Edge! :)

I don't know about anyone else, but there are a few select household items that I just HATE buying at full price. Toilet paper being my number one, paper towel, cleaners and laundry detergent. I know that these items go on sale cheap, and usually have coupons floating around. However, there are times when I run out before the next sale begins or coupons are available. I almost cringe when I go through the check out and pay $7.99 for a bottle of laundry detergent.

To my surprise and pleasure, this week my local Sobeys grocery store is selling Sunlight Liquid Laundry Detergent for $3.99. Being the couponer that I am, I have in my possession five $2.00 off Sunlight Green Clean Laundry Detergent coupons. This means, I can purchase five bottles of 32 use Sunlight Laundry Detergent at $1.99 each (total $9.95). For less than $10.00 I will get 160 loads of laundry (roughly $0.06 per load). This will be an entire years worth of washing, since I usually do a few loads per week. My laundry cupboard will be stuffed to capacity, and there will be a smile on my face.

Couponing can be so exciting sometimes!
