Remember this little deal? Those coupons are good through the end of the month, so if you’ve long since forgotten about it, print a new batch of coupons and get back to picking up some nearly-free toothpaste every time you go to the grocery store or Target.
Speaking of Target, I was there yesterday and they were putting out bathing suits. I know it’s been unseasonably warm in the northeast this year, but that made me twitch a little. I was there picking up a prescription, but the bathing suits reminded me that in retail parlance, it’s season-change time. What do you do when the seasons change? Why, stock up on next year, of course.
We happen to like the Circo cotton pajamas, and they were half off at my local store. I’ve got 2 pairs tucked away for each kid for next year, now, for about $4 apiece. (Yes, I’m too cheap to pay $8/pair. Stop looking at me like that.) You can wait for 75% off, but some sizes will sell out. I typically buy a couple of pairs at 50% off, then buy a few more at 75% if there are any left. Anyway, moral of the story: It’s the right time to shop ahead, if you’re so inclined.
