Confession: We almost ran out of toothpaste two weeks ago. We kept mentioning to one another that "we really need[ed] to go pick up some toothpaste soon", but never would remember until it was too late (or early) to go out.
And lucky for us, our procrastinating paid off. Target ended up having lots of crest and colgate toothpastes on clearance. $2.98 for a package of 3, plus a $5 gift card for buying 3 packs. We also had a coupon for $0.75 off 1 and got $0.05 off for using our own bag.
Deal for Real:
We used the $5 gift card to get an HDMI cable, surge protector, and screen cleaner set that was also on clearance for $4.58.
Love to find a good deal.
