I had a dentist appointment this afternoon (that I almost missed because I forgot to write it down! Where is my brain lately?) and right next to the office is a Shoppers Drug Mart.
Since this is a part of town I don’t visit often, I thought I’d check out the clearance rack. They actually had 2 (I didn’t know this). The first one was AWFUL, so I figured I was out of luck and proceeded to the back of the store to just pick up the milk, eggs and cheese I’d planned on buying and that’s when I saw the other clearance rack.
It was at least twice as big and had many more goodies. I picked up some $0.99 Colgate and Reach Toothbrushes, baby bottles and I also picked up 2 Medela breast pumps. I may keep one and then the other I plan on selling. They go for $100-$125 on eBay so I know that I can make a pretty decent profit!
On my way to the checkout, I noticed yet another clearance spot. This time it was a basket filled with hair products – all marked at $1.99. I knew I had $2.00 coupons for many of them, so I plucked out a bunch. Yay for freebies!
I split this order up into 3 transactions, so I was able to get the $10 gift card/coupon for spending $50 each time.
What a great little shopping trip!
