Doesn’t it always seem that you run out of everything all at once? And, it’s always at the most inconvenient time too, right? Murphy’s Law.
My husband is out of town for work and it seems like I have run out of everything this week. Why this week? The one week I don’t have any extra time to run to the store. Of course.
I typically love to order items online….when I actually plan ahead (seems to be more rare these days). I have not had that luxury this week. So, to add insult to injury, I thought I would see how much extra money I spent by getting everything at the store instead of online.
If you have some time this week, this list might come in handy.
Laundry Detergent – I make my own (post on that soon), but I did have to buy one ingredient, a bar of soap. Everything else I had on hand. Here’s a great deal online if you have the luxury of not needing it right now!
Dr Bronner’s Bar Soap $4.29 ($4.69) plus 4% cash back
Hairspray – I love the Giovanni organic hair-line. If you are local to Columbus you can get the line at Giant Eagle or Lucky’s Market. Vitacost is about $2.00 cheaper than either store.
Giovanni Hair Spritz $5.09 ($7.95) plus 4% cash back
Diapers – I love the Babyganics line at Target. The diapers do not have all the harsh chemicals and they are such a reasonable price. Also, make sure you subscribe to the target mobile coupons and Cartwheel for even more savings!
BabyGanics size 3 diapers $27.99 plus .05% cash back. You can get an extra $5 off with the Red Card and free shipping. If you don’t have the Red Card they have free shipping for an order of $25 or more.
Tampons – I try to use only organic tampons. Since these suckers are going in my body, I thought I really should go organic on these! Yes, a little more expensive but a lot less chemicals involved. I usually get these at the community market by my house, but this is actually a pretty good deal. Noted for next month!
Natracare Organic Tampons $4.99 ($5.99-$7.79) plus 4% cash back
Gifts – Ok, so I did not have to go out and buy this today. I actually saw that they are having a sale on Melissa and Doug toys at Target. I love their toys and have been looking for a magnetic doll for my son who is 4. I am loving this for him and all the birthday parties he has to go to.
Melissa & Doug Joey Magnetic Dress – Up Doll $11.04 ($12.99) plus .05% cash back. An additional 5% off and free shipping with the Red Card.
I also ran out of a handful of food items and gas. But, overall, I did not do too bad. I could have saved $3 plus earned cash back, along with the comfort of shopping in my own home (PRICELESS). Hopefully you won’t run out of everything at the same time and can save some $$$.
Hopefully, no more last-minute trips to the store, but it’s only Wednesday…..
