  1. In your write up you say you used 2 JOhn Frieda coupons $5WUB2. I only see 2 products. How can you use both of those coupons? Thanks

    • Tanya

      Hi Roxanne, I did not use 2 John Frieda coupons. I used 1, but wrote it out next to each item and noted “used in combination with the item above/below” since the coupon was applied to both items

  2. Where did you find the $2 off Loreal shampoo?

    • Tanya

      Hi Chantelle, I found the L’oreal coupons at my Shoppers Drug Mart! They are part of this month’s tearpad coupons and still in stores now

  3. Good shopping, Tanya! I really need to learn how & where to stack coupons. I’m not good at that, yet. Any tips? Also, every time I check Wal-Mart, I never find any clearance. Which one do you frequent, you seem to have better luck than I do at mine in the Lower Mainland. Thanks for your advice!

    • Tanya

      Hi Leslie, I think stacking coupons requires a lot of organization and good memory lol. It’s good to know your coupon stash well so stacking opportunities come to mind quickly. Also be sure to check restrictions on coupons and if there’s anything you’re unsure about, check with customer service first.

      Clearance is really a hit or miss at Walmart, sometimes you get lucky but there are often times when I don’t spot any clearance finds either. I usually shop at the one in Vancouver, but sometimes venture out to Burnaby or New West as well

  4. I to need to learn where to stack coupons. Also where you can use as many coupans that you have for that particular product. Like I how you have multiple products and wonder how that happens!? Any advice would be appreciated.

    • Tanya

      Hi Sarah, you can use multiple coupons if you have multiple products as long as the coupons don’t restrict it by saying one per customer or transaction and even in that case the cashier may allow it at their discretion instead of having you do multiple transactions.

      For example, my 6 L’oreal shampoos with 6 $2 coupons were fine because it was one coupon per product. Hope that helps!

  5. Where do you find the clearance stuff in walmart? I never see clearance items…do tell lol

    • Tanya

      Hi Candace,

      It really seems to depend. Some Walmarts put clearance items in a section, like in a temporary aisle or endcap where as others have clearance on regular shelves marked with yellow clearout tags.

      When you’re shopping have a look around, and maybe you’ll get lucky! I tend to find most clearance items in the health and beauty sections, like hair dye, shampoo, makeup. Hope that helps!

  6. I needed to thank you for this good read!! I definitely enjoyed every bit of it.
    I have got you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post…
