As I was going through my coupons I noticed that there were so many expiring on the 31st. I really hope that means that we will be getting a bunch this Sunday. Anyways, I just wanted to share on a few things of what to do with your expiring coupons.
First of all, Target will usually accept expired coupons a week or so after they have expired, so you don’t have to be so quick in getting rid of them. They are the only store that I have been able to do this. My Target did not have much Christmas candy left over though, since I have so many of those left.
Also, last months Proctor and Gamble inserts do not expire until the 31st, and we already have the new one, so there are lots of opportunitites to use those coupons together-especially at the drugstores this week.
The other thing is GIFT SETS. I have heard that the Gillette Razor gift packs were marked down in stores, and with the $4 off coupon you can get a really good deal. When the Gift Packs get marked down, you can use one coupon for the gift pack as well. I got some really good deals in the summer using the Venus razor coupons on summer sets that had lotion, razor, and shaving gel, so be on the lookout in the cleaerance areas! I usually take the items out of the gift sets and add them to my stockpile as single items.
Also if you have the Safeway Thanksgiving coupon books left, those expire on the 31st too. A Walmart employee let me know that the Glade candles are marked down to $1.17 so with the $1 off they are $.17! Plus if there is anything you want to stock up on with those, Winco has some of the best prices for the cake mixes and brownies ($.38 each after coupons!)
If anyone knows of any ‘must do’ deals before the year is up, leave a comment!!!
