A few weeks ago a coupon for $3.00 off 1 Nivea Body Wash (men's and women's) came out in the Sunday paper. I love Nivea products so I made sure to order extra coupons. It's taken me a few weeks to gather all of these, but I finally used my last 3 coupons this week making a total of 17 very inexpensive body washes. Some of these cost me .79 cents each while others were completely free depending on which store I purchased them at.
The stock supply on these was very low in my area due to people buying several of these at a time. While I'm obviously all for stockpiling I also want to encourage those of you that read this blog to consider others while you're out shopping. There are a lot of us "couponing" now days and although it's nice to stockpile a large quantity of an item it's also very frustrating to show up at the store and the shelves be empty. I'm running into this "problem" more and more so I just thought I'd put a friendly reminder on the blog about this.
Also, while I'm addressing this...I went to a yard sale this week of a person that obviously coupon shops and saw case after case of products for sale that I know for certain she got for free or cheap with coupons. I did a rough figure in my head and determined that she was making at LEAST a 100%-200% profit on her items.
I was curious as to how my readers feel about this somewhat controversial topic. Please feel free to leave a comment below and remember you can comment anonymously if you wish!
By the way, just in case you're wondering what I'll be doing with all this body wash...we'll use some, donate some and make gift baskets with some.
