Thanks to Courtney D. for posting her huge collection of freebies and some items from her recent shopping trips on our Facebook page!

We’re told this is only a small collection of the freebies she’s received as she’s already used a lot of them and given a bunch away, but it still seems like a lot! Courtney only paid $4 and taxes for the items she purchased from in-store!

Huge thanks to Emily N. for sharing her shopping trip with us! She did amazingly well and got all these items for only $9.26 including tax, an Extreme Couponer in the making!

Here’s her breakdown:

15 x Gillette Shaving Foam: $1.47 each and P&G’s ‘Buy 3 Gillette product, save $5′ gave me $25 to makin’ it a freebie and covering taxes! So when I went to purchase 12 cans (after buying 3, and wanting to make the best out of this deal), my total was $-0.28!
+ I used the $3 Nexus coupons and got the 4 trial sizes for free.
+ I had a $1.50 off Satin Care Shaving Gel and I bought a trial size one priced around $1.46.
+ I used my B1G1 coupon for Fantastik cleaning spray, making in $2.50 for 2!

*Not pictured*

+ I used 2 FPC’s for skinny cow individual cups from Facebook
+ I got a covergirl eyebrow pencil for $2.36 after $2 coupon
+ I got schneiders weiners for $1.47 after $1 coupon

So, overall today… I paid $9.26 for alll thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis.

BTW, if anybody is in need of Gillette shaving foam, this is an awesome deal to take up… it’s on sale from $2.18 down to $1.47 at Walmart and considering that the trial sized Gillette are already $1.27, why not get bigger freebies while you can?! :D
