Paid .31 tax for 4 Nivea Lip Gloss

A few weeks ago Rite Aid had Nivea lip gloss on sale for $1. I found a coupon online for $2/2 nivea lip items. I printed two coupons and got for lip gloss free and only had to pay .31 tax! They are regularly priced at $2.99 each!

Where To Find Upcoming Sales and Printable Coupons

Hey Everyone

This post may be random but I'm going to share some couponing tips and websites to find coupons and upcoming sales.

All 3 of the local drugstores in our area have websites where you can go and view the upcoming sales ads. This is a great way to see if the items you're going to be needing are going on sale anytime soon and where the best place to buy them is. Also I enjoy looking at the ads to see what coupons I need to find for the upcoming sales.

Rite Aid:



The upcoming ads are listed on the right hand side of the page.

Angie asked the question in the recent Q&A contest, Where do I find high value coupons online. There are many coupon sites online where you can print coupons. The sites I recommend are,, and Keep in mind the smart source and redplum sites have a lot of the same coupons that are in their inserts in the paper. resets their coupons every month, some coupons don't last a whole month on there. You can only print most printable coupons twice per computer. I do know that if the same coupon is on the site again the next month you may print it two more times.
