In addition to the dental floss savings I mentioned earlier in the week, anti-perspirant is something you no longer have to pay for. If you normally buy four sticks a month at $2 each you can easily pay $104 per year! Unlike floss, this isn’t something you want to buy massive quantities of because it can dry out and go bad. I aim to keep 2-3 months supply on hand when possible.
Here’s a coupon for $1 off Arrid. This is $.99 at Walgreen’s this week with in ad coupon- be sure to hand them the manufacturer coupon first and then the Walgreen’s coupon. It is often on sale for $1 Safeway and Kroger stores too.
When you see coupons that do not have a size limit you can typically get travel sized products free, especially at Target and Walmart. If you are a Walmart shopper you may want to save those “any size” coupons to buy you travel sized products there because they are around $.97 and the coupon policy allows you to get the $.03 overage (every little bit helps!). I keep a dozen of those around so that if I do run out of full sized ones I don’t feel pressured to buy it at a higher price while I am waiting for a good sale.

If you are brand loyal it desn’t hurt to email the manufacturer and ask for samples and coupons. The less expensive products can usually be found for free easily but the higher priced ones usually require a few steps, like waiting for a drugstore sale and using rewards or rebates to get it free.
