When you are purchasing an item, try to look for these phrases:
25% more: I usually find this on shampoo and conditioner, but some medicines and other products will have it too
Coupons inside: Look for any packages that say coupons inside or that have a peelie coupon on the outside
Bonus item/Free item: sometimes shave cream comes with a bonus razor, or as pictured on the side; hair color that comes with a little shampoo
Keep your eyes open for these phrases, especially at the drugstores, and it will help you stretch your dollars even farther!
