I’m usually pretty good at keeping our beauty shelf filled, so that I never have to pay full price for anything. However, I must have underestimated how quickly a family of six go through things, because this past Friday I discovered that we were out of conditioner. My youngest son declared that he was out of mousse and our middle son looked like he needed a hair cut, because he had run out of gel and had forgotten to let me know.

Thankfully I discovered all of this before the Sunday newspaper came out. It has been more than a year, since I last bought a Sunday newspaper since they’ve increased the price. But I noticed that our local Dollar Tree sold the Sunday paper for $1 each, so on Sunday I picked up two copies.

With a little planning, I managed to pick up everything everyone had requested, and my husband even got his stock of expensive Head & Shoulders renewed. I’m perfectly fine with the comparable Up & Up brand, but he swears to the name brand, yet I refuse to buy it a t full price. Each of the conditioners and shampoos even had their own samples attached, which made it an even better deal.

I cannot understand how big families manage without using coupons, because our budget would explode without them.
