One of the things that has been keeping me so busy over the past several weeks is attending a Couponing for the Kingdom Bible Study each week that is taught by my “in real life” blogging buddy from Thrifty Texas Penny.
In it we’ve been going over everything frugal living and couponing–something extremely useful for me on our college budget right now! While I’ve always been great at finding huge deals (hello Amazon and Groupon) and am a recently converted garage sale addict (my MIL and Pinterest did me in for that), I have never been able to get into couponing and the “Drug Store Games” left me with my eyes crossed. (Any CVS or Walgreens lovers out there???)
Over the past few weeks I’ve learned a bunch and started to work my new found knowledge to product “magic” at CVS. I now love to come home and brag to my MIL–LOOK! I got these 9 awesome products for under $1 a piece!
In the class we also talked about everyone needing to have their one “splurge” area. Maybe you love to have fast food but you can buy cheapo toliet paper, maybe you’re not brand loyal for makeup but you must have a certain kind of Kleenex. Everyone has their caveats! (Some of mine? My Macbooks and eating at fancier sit downs–Hello Outback and Red Lobster!)
One of my “splurge” areas has always been body & bath products. While I love me some affordable makeup there is something about body washes and lotions that leaves me always gravitating back to my high end specialty store brands.
While I was staying with my mom over Christmas she mentioned that they’d tried several body wash brands lately that they had picked up at Walmart but had that specialty body & bath feel. I was a little surprised and said I’d have to check them out.
When I was sent a bottle of Dial Coconut Water Body Wash I had high hopes that this might be just what my mom had been talking about! The androgynous look and smell would make this body wash be perfect for the entire family if you wanted it to be–but the subtle notes of floral make it just a touch girly with an overall really fresh, light, and clean smell to it. I was very happy with how much it lathered up–that’s usually my biggest complaint about big box store brands–they just don’t have that delicious foamy lather! As you can see in my picture, however, Coconut Water Body Wash provides a thick and creamy foam that’s just perfect for scrubbing up all over!
All this for a product I’ll be able to use some of that CVS and Wal*mart magic to get for next to nothing! Looks like I might be changing my must have splurge items after all!
