Carter’s clothes for babies and kids can regularly cost you upwards of $45 per bodysuit or outfit. But stack coupon codes on top of sale and clearance prices during Carter’s “Buy One Get Two” sales, and get bodysuits for as low as $1.44 each!
TIP: When prices are less than $5 per outfit, stock up on bigger sizes so you’re prepared for at least a season ahead.
2. The Children’s Place
The key to scoring $5 kids’ denim and $3 shirts from The Children’s Place is Place Cash. During The Children’s Place Cash events, you’ll typically get a $10 Place Cash coupon for every $20 you spend. But it gets even better!
Occasionally, The Children’s Place will have Double Place Cash events where you can get two $10 coupons for every $20 spent. Those coupons can then be used like cash on future purchases of at least $20.
Shop during these events to cut major bucks off your bottom line!

Tide laundry detergent is freakin’ expensive without coupons — like $12-for-100-oz. expensive.
Recently, KCL used a “$1 off $5 Tide detergent purchase” store coupon from CVS with 2 manufacturer coupons and a sale price. The total? $2.44 each for 2 bottles of Tide.
TIP: Download your local store’s smartphone app. In it you’ll find digital manufacturer coupons, which means you don’t need a printer or newspaper subscription to coupon.
A 12-pack of Cottonelle toilet paper is about $7. But use manufacturer coupons on top of sale prices and store promotions, and you’ll see prices as low as $1.50 per pack!
For example, Walgreens recently had a deal where shoppers could get a $3 Register Reward (a voucher for in-store credit that prints at the register) when they bought 2 paper products. So KCL used 2 manufacturer coupons — one for a roll of paper towels, and one for the toilet paper — to save on both items and get a $3 credit at the register.
TIP: When buying toilet paper, always calculate price per square foot.
Charmin will cost you about $7 for a 6-pack without coupons. Luckily, Coupons.com usually releases a high-value coupon at the beginning of every month. When you see it, print it right away (you can print 2 per phone number), and look out for deals on KCL.
With coupons, you have the potential to score a 16-pack for just $3.

Normally, Viva paper towels are about $10 per 8 rolls. Ibotta sometimes has high-value rebate offers for Viva that’ll save you $1.50 – $2 per pack. Pair that discount with a manufacturer coupon and sales price, and you could spend as low as $0.37 per roll.
TIP: When the cost of paper towels is $0.60 or less per roll, stock up to last you at least 3 months, about the time it takes for the next stock-up price to come along.
Pampers run about $0.45 per diaper (based on a size 3 diaper price). I’ll let you do the math and figure out how much money that is over the course of the 3 years babies tend to wear diapers. (Hint: it’s not good!) Which is why stocking up on diapers when you see a high-value Pampers coupon and a sale is key.
In fact, CVS has been known to offer their own high-value store coupons you can stack with a manufacturer coupon and a sale and Extrabucks! This can bring the price of a jumbo back of Pampers down to $0.15 per diaper.
TIP: Some stores will accept CVS store coupons as manufacturer-sponsored store coupons and allow you to stack them with manufacturer coupons. Even though it’s not a guarantee that your store will accept it, it never hurts to ask!
One of the best ways to save on Huggies is to take advantage of Target’s gift-card-with-a-purchase deals. Huggies diapers are about $0.21 each, full price.
To use a gift card promo, there’s usually a minimum threshold you need to meet with your purchase, for example: “Free $15 Target gift card with select baby department purchase of $75 or more.” Stack manufacturer coupons and Cartwheel offers to get Huggies for around $0.10 per diaper.
TIP: When stocking up on diapers, always calculate the per-diaper price.
Kohl’s can be magical when it comes to getting the lowest prices on items that are usually on the spendy side. I’m looking at you, $80.00 Sonicare toothbruth.

You can often find $1.00/1 manufacturer coupons for Energizer. But even better is when you can use a mail-in rebate on top of a coupon to get an even lower price on batteries. For example, a 4-pack of AA batteries usually costs $6.44 at Walmart. But when you have a $1.00/1 coupon, plus you get a $5 e-gift card when you spend $15, the same package of Energizer batteries will be $3.52.
TIP: Always use your coupon on the lowest quantity that qualifies to save more money. If you want higher quantities, print more coupons.
