People were talking everywhere about penny deals at Michaels. Deals that were clearanced so low they were a penny! I ran over to my store and guess what. Nothing. I went through the WHOLE store looking for things that might be a penny. After having a cashier ring me up 20 different baskets (I warned her before hand .. ha) I found ONE that was a penny. Totally worth it, but again, some people were getting 10 baskets and plates, $70 mirrors and more for just a penny. I found a single basket.
The next deal were my Hot Wheels at Dollar General. People were saying they were finding them for $.14 … um. I went to 2 different stores. Mine were $.41… regular priced. No glitch.
Then I went to Family Dollar as today was the last day for the TRESemme deal. They were almost out of the shampoo, and all out of the clearanced items. BUT I have been wanting to try dry shampoo for a while, so I scored 2 bottles for $3.65. More than the $.50 price I could have got with better coupons but I got something I wanted.
The other deal was the Walgreens Revlon lipstick deal. I was hoping to find some that was on clearance or less than $5 so they’d be under $1, but 2 Walgreens later and guess what. Neither had ANY lip stuff less than $7.99… so I paid $12.32 for 3 lip sticks instead of $4.
Over all, I saved more than 65% on all these shopping trips which is AWESOME, but it is frustrating when some people get them for so much less. I just wanted to let you know how my trips went and to encourage you not to give up if you can’t find some deals that are out there!
