There have been some recent changes in my job that have caused our household monthly budget to need adjusting. It’s been challenging finding ways to reduce certain expenses. You’ve noticed one change recently: I changed my blog emails from Mad Mimi to Feedburner to prevent a monthly fee. Every little bit counts, right? Another thing I’ve been working on recently is how to reduce the monthly costs of our grocery and household items. I’ve started using many more coupons than I used to, and I’ve also started purchasing larger quantities of items, such as bath tissue and paper towels! Have you realized that items are cheaper in bulk?! Scott Shared Values has really helped us stock up WHILE saving money! You can’t beat that, can you!? I can! Read on!
On a recent trip to Walmart to get some of our household items and groceries, two items on our list were bath tissue and paper towels. I typically dread buying these items because it adds a hefty amount to our checkout bill. I knew I needed to buy these items in bulk to save the most money and I was thrilled to find Scott Brand packages in bulk for BOTH of these items!
You see, we’ve used and loved Scott brand products in the past so that’s why I was so excited. The paper towels are strong and sturdy and perfect for our kitchen and our needs with two toddlers. We also have plans of using these on some art projects with the kids soon! The bath tissue is (extra) soft and comes in huge packages, perfect for stocking up and saving money by buying in bulk! Our little guy thinks the rolls are perfect for stacking and having fun! 😉 That works, too and I’m ok with him having that kind of fun! 🙂
After the excitement of finding both items in bulk at Walmart, I was thrilled even more to find the $4 Vudu credit on the Scott bath tissue packages! You see, hubby and I don’t often get time alone and this would give us the perfect (and cheap) opportunity to have a movie night! That’s right!!! We get a FREE night to enjoy quality time together after the kids are in bed!
In the end, we not only got a great value by buying Scott products in bulk (which made this mama really happy while trying to cut our budget), but we received movie credit to have free entertainment! You REALLY can’t beat that!!! Be sure to check out our shopping trip via our Google+ photo album.
After browsing the movies to see what was available, hubby and I decided via text (since we were both at work talking about this) that we would watch Bucket List for our movie night. This is a movie we’ve talked about often and I even wrote a bucket list recently, which really got us wanting to see this movie. I love that Vudu gives lots of information about the movie and gives various options for renting and owning!
It really was a treat to have this freebie from the Scott Shared Value consumer rewards program. The program offers unique deals, coupons and rewards to members. It is 100% FREE and only takes a minute to join on the Scott Shared Values Website. Right now they even have an offer to get a free roll of their new extra soft bath tissue! It helps us to spread our budget even farther, thank you Scott!! 🙂
