VarietyHo hum. Here I go to the stockpile to use the same brand for months at a time. Can’t waste anything, so I have to use all this cleaner before I can try a fun new brand.

Knock it off, Miss Boring! Variety is the spice life!

Try new coupons. Try new flavors. Try new scents, varieties, colors and styles.

It is far, far better to switch between pesto, marinara and bolognese than always have plain old tomato sauce! The same holds true for shampoo, chewing gum, pot scrubbers and dryer sheets.

Remember, build a stockpile slowly. Add a handful of extra items a week. Most products, including personal care items, have expiration dates. Stock up only what you will use before the expiration date!

Well its comes to beauty and personal items I never stick to same brand or smell. To keep it from getting boring plus stop build ups and resistance(like shampoo and skin care) So its never a good thing to stick to the same brand. I love organic products but so expensive. So when it goes on sale I treat myself.


Agreed! Couponing is your opportunity to try new things without paying full price! Then if you don’t like it, you don’t feel so guilty about wasting some of it.


I agree 100%. Sometimes though I get carried away and get too much of one product when a new one comes along that I want to try. It gives me the opportunity though to donate products to charity to make room for other stuff.
