It's a game I play each week "How much can I get for the least amount of money!".

$4 bag of name brand pads I pay $.50 or less and get enough for the next 6 months or more depending on how many coupons I can get my hands on. I know the sale will come around again for that price in about 6 months.

I don't pay for toothpaste or brushes by shopping at the drug store combining sale, coupon with cash back offers.

I buy a lot of canned goods at Dollar Tree as they take coupons and have the bigger sizes for $1. They had 3 serving size of Ranch Beans last fall $1 while I was paying $1.69 for a 2 serving size at the grocery. They don't always have the same selection so I stock up when I see them. There are stores in each of the neighboring towns so I stop in to see what that store has when I'm in that town since they are shipped different items each week.
