Happy Monday, everyone!
I have been in HELL all day. It started at 8 and has not let up most of the day. So I thought I would take a few minutes to breathe and write a blog post. So there!
You might remember how I was bemoaning the fact that my stockpile was worthless as it was all still packed up a while back. Well, it is not any more. It is all unpacked, on shelves and in use. Yeah, stockpile!! I would show you pics, but since there are still many unpacked boxes in that room, I decided not to.
While everything was still packed up, Hubby had gone to the store and picked up a couple of items he needed even though we knew we had them in boxes somewhere. My silly hubby. He thinks he needs to use things like deodorant Every. Single. Day. It took a while to find all the bathroom HBA. I was set, but I did not need to shave as often as he does. So, he ran to the store to get a few “needed” items. He came back with Dove bar soap, as well as the other stuff he got. I have not bought Dove soap in years. I love it thought and that is all my mom has ever bought, so I grew up using it.
I figured we would use what he bought, then go back to my soap bargains. We are bar soap users, so I bargain shop for it. Lately, we have been using a lot of Dial as I got it at the best price. Dial is a great soap and we like it. But my skin was starting to look like “old lady skin”….in the summer…when skin is never dry. Since using the Dove, it hasn’t gotten back to “young chick” skin, but it is looking better. And Hubby likes Dove. Go figure.
So, CVS had Dove soap on sale last week and I decided to buy some. Price was $8.49 for 6 bars, B1 G1 ½ off. So, $8.49 + $4.24 = $12.73 for 12 bars. WHAT?!!! That is crazy! But I did have a $1 coupon. (Yes, I only had one.) And CVS had some items that generate a $10 GC when you spend $30. As I was already buying hair color and mascara, the Dove soap got the amount up to right over $30. If I had not bought the soap, I would not have earned the $10, so I consider that $10 offset the soap and I only paid $1.73 for 12 bars.
Could I have bought other items to get that $10? Yes. But Hubby and I decided we like Dove soap and our skin is worth it. And I did not even get any free soap to write this post about Dove soap. LOL!
In other news, we are still unpacking and neither one of us are stressing out about it. We have stocked up our freezer and pantry, so have cut back on the eating out.
And we bought a new rocker recliner this weekend. I will post picks in a couple of days. Yeah for new furniture!
