This made me happy.





So, I needed to buy more deodorant. And I hate buying deodorant because it's expensive! Well, expensive to me anyways. It's always hurts for some reason to pay $6.00 for it. It's kind of like buying decent razors. You don't want to buy these things but you have to or you will smell and be hairy. Why not buy a cheaper brand you say? Well, because it doesn't work as well. And there are very few things that I HAVE to have the certain brand of and the deodorant is one of them.

I had a coupon for a dollar off one item at CVS. So I went there and decided I would use it to buy the deodorant.  I get to the counter and hand the lady my $1.00 off coupon and this is what happened after...

Cashier: "That will be forty cents please."

Me: (in shock) "FORTY CENTS???!"

Cashier: "Yup, forty cents! It was on clearance and combined with your coupon...forty cents!."

Me: WOW, that's amazing!!!! (happily handing over my forty cents)

And then I walked out of CVS with a goofy smile on my face. I think that was the best deal I've ever gotten on anything! I know, I probably sound pathetic, but it just felt great to walk out of a store with something I usually hate spending money on and only paying forty cents for it! :)

Just had to share. You can go back to what you were doing :)

Haha love it! And you aren't alone. I always cringe at the price of deodorant...and yet I still always buy the same expensive brand. :) If I were you I would have gone back in and bought a few more at $1.40!! :)

I totally would have bought like 5 more at that price! Although, that's why Ben would say I am not a bargain shopper because I can't just take the great deal and run with it... I have to buy more!! LOL

oh gosh, I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets excited with stuff like that! Just last week I went and got Meatball his canned dog food, expecting to pay about $12 for the 7 cans, and it rang up as $4 because it was apparently the "manger's" weekly special and had a manufacturer's coupon! It's the little things in life! lol Good job girl!!

You are just like me- I tried to buy the generic deodorant before and it just left me sweaty, so I HAVE to get the expensive ones. Awesome that you got such a good deal on yours!
