New Series! Beautiful On A Budget: Money Saving Sundays – February 10-16, 2013


start_saving_now

I am not afraid to admit I am a couponer-not an “extreme” couponer, but a “common sense” couponer.  I love clipping coupons and going through store ads to find the best deals on products used in our household.  I do not coupon out of necessity, but do so because paying retail is NOT necessary.  We work hard for our money and we all know how good it feels when we purchase items we love at lower prices!

I review many products from high-end or luxury brands.  I also realize not everyone chooses to spend their money on prestigious brands, for whatever reason.  It is important for me to provide you with enough information so you can choose the best products for you, no matter what your beauty budget is.

I will be starting a weekly feature (posted early Sunday mornings!), focusing specifically on drugstore cosmetics, that will inform you on what is on sale and what coupons can be found in your Sunday newspaper inserts.  Coupons may or may not coincide with a current sale, but hang on to them because there will likely be a deal to use the coupon with before it expires.  

Eventually, I will get into more detail about specific deals and how to make your dollar stretch using “Up Rewards,” “Extra Bucks,” and other store rewards.  For now, I want to simply provide you with the basic sales and coupon info.

Keep in mind that the number of coupons and sales will vary from week to week.  This week, there are only a few cosmetic coupons, but there are ample sales.

Now, let’s get on to this week’s coupons and sales!

More About Beautiful On A Budget:

Many, if not all of us, strive to save money, and shopping for beauty items should not be an exception.  As I try more and more products from drugstore brands (and get a little older and wiser), I realize it is not always necessary to spend oodles of money for high quality cosmetics.  You can find an abundance of impressive products, at affordable prices, in your local pharmacy.

EVERY WEEK stores such as Rite Aid, CVS, and Walgreens, etc. offer discounted prices and rewards for beauty products.  With a few exceptions, you should never have to pay the manufacturer suggested retail price for drugstore cosmetics.  With a little bit of research, patience, and some delayed gratification, you will be surprised at how much money you can pocket.

The consumer advocate within me is itching to come out!  By reviewing products found at your local drugstore, and providing weekly information on store sales and coupons found in your local newspaper, I am going to help you save money so you can use it towards other parts of your life  you deem necessary (maybe even use your savings towards that luxury product you’ve been lusting after!).
