Extreme Couponing Tip: Be Wary of Non-Food Items at the Grocery Store

To save the most on toiletries, personal care items, and medicine, skip the grocery store and head to your nearby drugstore!

Before becoming a Krazy Couponer, you probably steered clear of drugstores. But with coupons and rewards, drugstores are the best place to buy personal care items at huge discounts, including free items and moneymakers!

Every store has items they specialize in and, therefore, great prices/promos on those items. For grocery stores, it’s food. For drugstores, it’s personal care items and medicine.  For example, your local grocery store may have toothpaste on sale for $2.50. If you have a $0.75 manufacturer coupon, you’ll pay $1.75. But if you wait until a drugstore promo, you can pair that $0.75 coupon with a Buy One, Get $2.00 in Rewards promotion and make money buying it!

There will be a few exceptions from time to time, but in general, you’re better off buying these items at the drugstore by pairing coupons with sales and reward promotions:

  • Toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss
  • Shampoo, conditioner, hair color, stylers
  • Beauty tools, make up
  • Vitamins, medicine, first aid needs
  • Feminine care products
  • Shaving gel and razors
  • Deodorant, soap, body wash
