With the Christmas Season upon us I have been trying to teach my girls that it is better to give then to receive and that there are people who have nothing and we have so much. One of my goals was to be able to use my couponing to give back and today, for the first time, I was able to and it felt AMAZING! I made a little trip to my Dentist, Dr Do, and asked for some coupons. Well I was blown away when she had a HUGE stack for me. So I headed over to my parents house so my Mom could help me sort all the coupons, no small task, there were about 1000! Some were actually expired but we still had tons and the one that I wanted to my deal today ... I had 275! I had to go to two different Walmarts but was able to get a huge amount have a look .....
Crazy Right! So here are the details:
126 - 85ML Toothpaste = Regular Price $2.69 Price Match Loblaws $0.99 and $1.50 coupon from my Dentist for each one.
43 - Travel Size Toothpaste = $1.00 then $1.50 coupon from my Dentist for each one
Retail Cost: $431.59 (including HST)
and my total ... drum roll please ...
I MADE $65.08
That's right Walmart PAID me $65.08 in gift cards to "BUY" 169 tubes of toothpaste. So we are ready to make a large toothpaste donation to charity (and share among our family and friends who need it) then use the money we made to buy some gift for children in need. I LOVE that I was able to do this and will help so many people out!
