Over the past few months we as a family have been so busy with soccer practice, games, field days, award ceremonies, PTC events, etc. So I felt that cutting out the extra shopping at the local drugstores for a little while would help save some extra time each week not having to chase the deals!
At first it was easy and actually I did feel as if I was shopping less. But the this week came along and I realized I was very low and even out of some stockpile items that are normally FREE or really cheap at the drugstore and they weren’t on sale this week.
Meaning I may have to pay full price for items I would normally get for FREE. Meaning money from our grocery budget that could be spent on other items is now going to be spent on basics I would normally have in my stockpile. I know that the drugstore game is not for everyone but for our family getting shampoo, soap, razors, medicine, etc for FREE each week really helps us stretch our grocery budget tremendously.
