Capitalizing on the grocery deals
$6.99 x 4 =$27.96 or $1.16/bar
$6.49 x 4=$25.96 $1.08/bar
minus $3 promo =$22.96 or 95 cents/bar
minus $4 worth of manufacturer's coupons=$18.96 or $4.74/6 count pkg or 79 cents/bar
I saved over $9 on this deal but it gets better: I get DS's associate discount of $2.35
so $16.61 total or $4.15/6 count pkg or 69 cents/bar.
I saved 41% on a daily need, and paid 72 cents less in tax as a result. Nice. Including what I already had on hand, this represents approx 7 1/2 months worth of bar soap for me. I won't need to buy any for quite some time. Additionally, I use homemade versions of liquid soap at the kitchen sink, and guest bathroom sink off of the den down on the lower level. All other sinks use bar soap. I also ask for consumables this time of year with my upcoming birthday and Christmas and may* receive nice soaps to add to this supply. Every soap scrap is saved, and once I've amassed enough, I make one of my "soap cakes" so I know that none is being wasted.
