Dollar Shave Club-- Best Price on Razors

Razor blade cartridges are expensive!  My husband has been using Mach3 Cartridges forever. He is good at making them last even though he shaves every single day, but it is still expensive every time we have to buy new ones.

We are thrilled with our recent solution: Dollar Shave Club!

Dollar Shave Club is a monthly subscription where they send you 4-5 blade cartridges a month.  You get the handle free the first month.  The best part is that you can pause your subscription at any time.  Since my husband can make a cartridge last for about a month, after 2 months of Dollar Shave Club subscription, we are set for 8 months!

There are 3 different levels of cartirdges.  You can see them and their features here.  The prices are $3, $6 and $8 per month and that includes shipping.  They always send samples of their other products too!

My husband hasn't noticed a difference from the Mach 3 cartridges that he has used for years.  Give it a try!

  • How do you save on razors and shaving?

$1 off Kellogg's Cereal coupons x 28!

I know this blog has really fallen by the wayside.  I'll save you the laundry list of excuses and just say "pregnant" and "toddler."  I had to make everyone aware of these great coupons, though.

There are 7 different Kellogg's cereal coupons for $1 off.  You can print them twice here (or on my sidebar), and then go to the Kellogg's site and print each one twice more!  That's 28 coupons total!  Time to stock up on cereal!

For the locals here, County Market has Kellogg's cereals 2 for $4, so with your coupons you can get it for $1 a box!  For everyone else, print the coupons now and hold on to them for when Kellogg's goes on sale!

Huggies Diaper Deals at Walgreens

This is the week to use your Huggies diaper coupons! If you haven't printed any yet, hurry and do it now. If you printed them when they first came out, you may be able to print a second set since they were reset. The two big coupons are:: $5 off one Huggies Gentle Care product and $3 off one Huggies Natural Fit product. Follow the links or use the sidebar. You can print each coupon twice!

If you're new to getting deals at Walgreens, check out my Walgreens Basics or this might not make much sense. You will earn $10 RR when you spend $25 (before coupons) on any combination of the following items:

Huggies Jumbo Pack Diapers or Training Pants: $10

Huggies Wipes (182 or 232 ct): $6

Kotex Products: 2/$6

Scott of Cottonelle TP 12-pack: $7

Kleenex: 3/$4

Poise/ Depends: $12

What we need most in that list is diapers, so here are a few diaper scenarios:

(3) Huggies Gentle Care Diapers @ $10 each = $30
-(3) $5 off coupons= $15
$15 OOP, receive $10 RR

(2) Huggies Gentle Care Diapers @$10 each=$20
(1) Huggies Natural Fit Diapers @ $10 each=$10
-(2) $5 off coupons
-(1) $3 off coupon
$17 OOP, receive $10 RR,

REMEMBER that you can't roll our $10 RR into this deal (you can use it for another RR deal, just not the same one). At Walgreens, you can use your RRs on pretty much anything, but if you use it in the same deal that you got it, the new RRs will not print. So you could use your $10 in a 2nd diaper deal, but your 2nd $10 RR won't print, making it not as good of a deal.

If you're worried about using your $10 RRs before they expire (in 2 weeks) you can always use them to purchase free-after-rebate items, then you can get the money back on a gift card, which doesn't expire, and get some free products as well!

$5 off and $3 off Huggies Coupons-- Print now, Save for deal later

There are some high dollar value Huggies coupons now available: $5 off one Huggies Gentle Care product and $3 off one Huggies Natural Fit product. You can print each coupon twice!

Print them now before they're gone! You can print them from my sidebar (I usually click on "See all coupons" at the top of the coupon printer, then select the coupons I want) or follow this link. You can print each coupon twice from your computer. (If you are printing from the sidebar, just refresh the page, then you will see the same coupons again.)

I would recommend saving these coupons to use at Walgreens March 8-14. Word is that Huggies jumbo packs will be on sale for $10 and there will be a deal where if you spend $25 in Huggies products (before coupons, of course), you will get $10 in Register Rewards (basicallyin other words, $10 off your next transaction). That will make for a very good diaper deal!

So, print the coupons now, and when the sale comes up, I'll give you the scoop! If you don't have little ones in diapers, this would make for a very useful and inexpensive shower gift!

Diapers at Walgreens

You can get some cheap diapers this week at Walgreens! In the ad, there is a coupon for $3 off Walgreens brand diapers (jumbo pack). The coupon also goes for Walgreens brand wipes and formula. Also, this month you automatically get $2 off at the register when you buy 2 jumbo packs of diapers of any brand (see EasySaver catalog for details).

So here's the deal:

1st pack Walgreens diapers $8.99
2nd pack Walgreens diapers $6.99 (the $2 is taken off in the price of the 2nd package)
[give cashier the in-ad coupon. takes of $6 ($3 per pack)]
Total= $9.98 for 2 jumbo packs
Never heard of Walgreens diapers?

I have heard great things about them, but I'm trying them for the first time myself (well, my baby is). There are 2 kinds: premium in the light green package (comparable to Huggies or other name brand diapers) and regular in the white with red accent package (comparable to store brand diapers). The jumbo size packs are $8.99 for each kind, but the regular diapers have a few more per package (for example, size 4 packages have 30 premium diapers or 34 regular diapers).

I always do the math when it comes to diapers. We aren't too picky about the diapers themselves, as they all have the same end anyway, if you know what I mean. In our experience, newborn liqui-poo leaks out of the expensive diapers just about as often as the cheap diapers. As long as my baby's bum isn't allergic to the diaper, we're good to go. So the math on these (for size 4) is 14.7 cents for regular and 16.6 cents for premium. That's even a little cheaper than Target diapers (which are by far the cheapest regular-priced diaper and the ones we always use) and just the regular Walgreens diapers seem higher quality. I'll let you know how they work!

Free Photo Books from Shutterfly and Picaboo

I got an email today with an offer from Shutterfly for a free 20-page 8x8 photo book (regular $29.99)! The promotion code is PHOTOBOOKS. You have until March 10th to create your book. If you're new to Shutterfly, you also get 25 free 4x6 prints added to your account. Shipping is $7.99. Additional pages (after 20) are $1 each.

Click on th 8x8 Story Book. Then press the orange get started button on the right. (Don't select from the "shop by occasion" list. Those are designer pages and your book will cost $34.99.)

You can get a hardcover instead, but you'll be charged $10 for it. Only the softcover book is free. Shipping is $7.99. Additional pages (after 20) are $.99.

CVS Basics

Getting Deals at CVS

Getting a CVS ExtraCare Card
You can sign up to get a CVS ExtraCare card when you make your first purchase in the store. The limit is one card per household. The card allows you to get all of the good deals, and at the end of each quarter, you get a small percentage of your total spending back (in the form of ExtraCare Bucks).

Earning ExtraCare Bucks
By purchasing certain items, you will receive ExtraCare Bucks (ECBs). Your ECBs will print out on the bottom of your receipt. Just cut off the ECB portion of your receipt and use it like cash on your next transaction. The weekly store ad (which is available at the front of the store) tells what items will generate ECBs. There is also a monthly ad available at the front of the store that has ECB deals and other deals that last the whole month. There always seems to be at least one “free-after-ECB” item.

Spending ExtraCare Bucks
ECBs can be used just like cash. They print out in the increments they were earned ($2 for this item, $3.98 for that item). You can combine as many as you want to pay for a transaction. You will not get change for your ECBs, so be sure your total is very near or a little bit over the total value of ECBs you are using to pay or you will lose the difference. Your ECBs can only be spent by you or someone who has your CVS card. Your ECBs will have an expiration date on them, usually a month after they were earned. If you don’t use them, you’ll lose them, so be sure to pay attention!

The most important thing to remember is that you should spend your ECBs as carefully as you would spend cash. In order to preserve the mindset of “free-or-very-cheap-after-ECB,” you must be judicious in how you use ECBs.

Sweetening the Deals
Doing multiple transactions is a great way to get the most for the least.

Say there are three items you want to get that each cost $3 and are all “free-after-ECBs.” Instead of buying all three at once for $9 out-of-pocket (OOP) and getting $9 of ECBs to use in the future, you could buy one of them for $3 OOP which will earn $3 of ECBs. Then you will use those ECBs to buy your second item which earns another $3 of ECBs. Those ECBs will pay for your third item. For a total of $3 cash you purchased all three items, and have $3 of ECBs for your next visit. Using your ECBs to generate more ECBs is called “rolling” your ECBs. (Note: For the sake of
simplicity, I didn’t include tax, but in the real world they’re not so nice.)

Many times, using a coupon will also make an item “free-after-ECBs.” You can even make money on purchases by using coupons.
Colgate Total is on sale for $3 and earns you $2 ECB. Normally I would have to pay $3 OOP, but I have a $2 off coupon, so I only pay $1 OOP and earn $2 ECB. That’s free toothpaste and a net profit of $1!

Occasionally, other coupons will print at the bottom of your receipt. Some of them are $/$$ coupons ($5 off a $15 purchase, etc). You should always present these coupons before other coupons and ECBs. Otherwise, your total may not be high enough to allow you to use the coupon.
