What can $4.13 buy you?

Well let me tell you what $4.13 can buy you these days......Alot!
It has been my goal this new year to save as much money on groceries as I can. I have become competitive with.....well, no one but myself, but I take it seriously. I search the web looking for the best deals and free samples.
This week I found coupons for Johnson's products that have been reset. I got 6 Buddie bars for free, yes free. I have used these coupons before, and I don't think I will have to buy my kids soap until they are out of the house.
I refuse to pay more than a dollar for toothpaste now. And I won't pay more than a dollar for shampoo or deodorant.
Those 4 bottles of coffee mate creamer, free!
Mac and cheese, .49 each, can't beat that.
Huggies had great $5 off coupons for baby wipes, got 186 pack of wipes for .99 cents, gotta love it.
Using coupons has changed my life. I used to spend $120 a week on groceries, and now I average $30-$40 a week, what a savings! I now, never shop at Wal-mart to get the best deals, I shop Safeway and Walgreens to get the best deal, and I am saving money on gas because they are so close.
I am a member of and they send me free products to try out and share with my friends. I got a new Scrubbing Bubbles shower cleaner in the mail, with refills. And their new toilet cleaner product and a bunch of coupons. Full bottles of Pledge cleaner, and all their items come with coupons to buy more if I like it.
I am addicted to websites that offer free samples, I get a new one in the mail every day. Free make up, lotions, garbage bags and food, gotta love it.
There are so many ways to save money these days. I know with this economy, everyone is tightening their belt, and retailers are desperate to have your money.
Let me know what opportunities you come across.
