I am so excited about all the cheap sunscreen I’ll be getting this week– my husband will definitely be shopping with me so I can get extras at Target!  I always stock up this time of year for all of our summer activities.  Free tampons at Walgreens, free Ocean Spray juice, and free Veets at Rite Aid also have me excited!

I had a friend say to me today, “I’m not doing much couponing these days because there just aren’t as many coupon deals anymore!”  I even have read similar comments from readers on this blog.  Sure, some of the things I used to get for free like toothpaste and bodywash cost a little now, but I am still getting a great deal and saving my family a lot of money.  I still replenish my stockpile for at least 75% retail price, and I am finding more varied items that I can get with coupons now instead of just a lot of toothpaste and bodywash.

I took a friend to Target this week to see what we could do on a quick trip.  We spent about $7.00 for $35.00 worth of items she will use including 2 bags of M&M’s, a nail file, two standup tubes of  Aquafresh toothpaste, 4 bottles of Dial handsoap, petroleum jelly, a four-pack of Welch’s Fizz, Up and Up pain reliever, 2 Quaker Medley oatmeal, and weed and grass killer.  I still think that is a great deal!  It’s like paying for the candy and getting everything else free!

Couponing is still worth it in my book!  What are your thoughts?
