This was a multi store trip. Went to Shoppers Drug mart for the toothpaste BOGO deal then headed to Real Canadian Superstore to pick up the Dove gift basket on clearance and finished off at Save On Foods picking up the nestea green tea (they were out at RCSS). All of the coupons used today were free product coupons, which is rare for me to do all in one trip but some of them were close to expiry so I figured hey, why not!

Extreme Couponing Canada Breakdown:

98% savings on this trip since I used all FPC’s and only paid a bit on the bananas.

All in all I paid $3.34 for everything pictured.

Free product coupons are a great way to get products you regularly use or would like to try. Pay attention to promotions offered by companies, FPC’s on the packaging of other items, ask for coupons at your health professional’s office and don’t be hesitant to let a company know if you’re not satisfied with one of their products, or absolutely love their products!
