Yeppers….I really did it! Today I went Dumpster Diving for Coupons! Now, I’m sure some of you just cannot imagine the thought, but let me tell you, I had a blast and the excitement of what I was able to snag today will bring me HUGE scores at the stores tomorrow, so go ahead…call me crazy!
It wasn’t a typical “Dumpster Dive” per say….but I did map out a plan the minute I got my own mail today. I received the $10 off $10 Coupon for JCPenney and also a “SmartMarket” Coupon Insert that featured a $1.00 off any 1 Purex Laundry Detergent and a $1.00 off any 1 Soft Scrub Product.
The $10 off $10 at JCPenney Coupons are a no brainer-all you pay is sales tax for an item $10 or less.
The $1.00 off Purex Laundry Detergent is a rare coupon and this detergent goes on sale often. This week at Rite Aid it is on BOGO FREE Sale for $5.99. 2 of the Coupons in this mailer will make that 2 Purex Laundry Detergents for just $3.99 ($1.99 each). Combine those with any Transaction Coupons such as the $3 off $15 Survey or the Video Values $1 off Transaction Coupons and I’m at my rock bottom stockpile price when split into separate transactions.
So, I knew needed more! And knowing how most people throw out what they consider “junk mail”, I knew that the trash cans at the post office would be overflowing with free money for me *SMILES*
There is also nothing but “junk mail” in these trash cans, but I gloved up anyways.
So here’s my score….
Total of (11) eleven of the $10 off $10 Coupons for JCPenney = that’s $110 FREE Items for me, I’ll just pay sales tax.
Total of (45) Forty Five Coupon Inserts with the $1 off Purex and $1 off Soft Scrub Coupons.
Yippeeee!!! I can’t wait to hit the stores tomorrow!
So, have you or would you ever consider “Dumpster Diving” for High Value or Rare Coupons ?
