If you have ever considered using coupons now is the time!
I’m on a pretty tight beauty budget and saving and using coupons helps me buy so many more drugstore beauty and skin care products than I would be able to at full price!! That allows me to have a little more money for an occasional high end beauty product!
My shopping trip to Target yesterday is a perfect example.
Target is currently running a sale on Pond’s Make-up
I really like these and they were voted one of
Allure magazines Best of Beauty. They are, however, a bit pricey,
so this is the only way I purchase them.
They usually run about $4.60 a package. Target has them on sale for $3.79 and when you buy 3 you get a $5 Target gift card.
I bought 3 packages and used a $1 on 1 coupon (from this Sunday’s paper 5/18)for each package as well as $1 on 1 package Target coupon
That took my initial total of $11.37 down to $5.37 for all three together! Then, I got a $5 Target gift card back so my net spent was only $.37 for all three!!!
(some Targets will only allow 2 identical coupons per transaction but that would still be a great deal!!)
These were also on sale. I’ve never used these
before because they also run between $4 and $5.
Fortunately, I was able to work the same deal
for these as I did the facial towelettes!
Target had them on sale for $3.79 a piece and when you buy 3 you get a $5 Target gift card back. I bought 3 of them and used a coupon for $2 off 1 package for each package I purchased. This took my initial total, again, from $11.37 down to $5.37 after coupons AND I received another $5 Target gift card! Again, making my net amount spent for these only $.37 for all 3!!
Last, but definitely not least.
One of my very favorite drug store beauty products!
It’s a tiny little tub of moisture!
These sweet little tubs are only $1.77
I really really like this lip product.
I initially purchased some for a night time moisturizer for my lips. But, it has such a pleasant rose scent and sweet pink tint, that I wear it all. the. time. now!
Very sheer, but just enough color.
So, to recap…
Total out of pocket spent on skin care $14.28 Received $10 in Target gift cards = $4.28 for all of this
