1. Bottled water
When my +Ups are getting ready to expire and there’s nothing really grabbing me on sale that I need, I simply buy cases of store brand water. Typically $2.99 or less, this is a great way to use those bucks before they expire by buying something you really will use!
2. Paper items
This is a great idea because we all need toilet paper and paper towels. These items are frequently on sale anyway and coupons are usually readily available. Paper products are a necessity so are great to buy with expiring ECBs.
3. Clearance items
I’m a clearance end-cap stalker! I look at these items every time I go in a store to see if I have a coupon or to check for an additional discounted price. Use those register rewards to buy clearance items which are priced to sell!
Store rewards are like cash in my pocket! I don’t want to have to throw them away, so buying items I know I’ll use is a great way to ensure I don’t!
