Another of My Favorite Things...

Are you a Tide user?  I hadn't been...well, before this really great find. Usually I buy Purex or All when they are on sale AND I have a coupon...within a price range of $2.00 and under. My Mom never used Tide because it makes my Dad's skin itch. So when I was doing my weekly grocery shopping at Kroger and found a basket of Tide marked down, I stopped to look.  This is what I found...

Notice the "Plus Downy"? I did too! Downy is my favorite fabric softener and I've tried quite a few softeners before I settled on Downy. I even tried making my own detergent (which smelled fantastic, by the way) but my clothes didn't come out smelling like the detergent. They didn't have ANY smell. Being used to the April Fresh scent of Downy I was rather disappointed. The clothes didn't stink...but they didn't smell either (if you know what I mean).

Back at the store I bent over the cart filled with these bottles of Tide and gingerly picked one inspect the price.

Wait--did I read that right? Yup...$3.99. "Hmmm...," I thought. "If I remember right, I DID cut out a few $2.00/1 Tide coupons and put them in my binder. I wonder if they're expired?"

Oh yeah, baby! Chuh-Ching! The coupons were there...and suddenly three bottles of Tide detergent were in my cart.  I paid $1.99 for three bottles with a grand savings of $18!! My clothes have never smelled or felt so good!! This is DEFINITELY one of my favorite things!!
