  • CFO’s Stock Up Price List: Toiletries

    I’m routinely asked what’s a good price for a certain product, so I thought I would share my Price Book with you. I’m doing it by category to make it more manageable. If I don’t list something you’re interested in, please let me know.

    One thing to note: One person’s stock up price may not be the same as another person’s, because prices vary by region and by store (even within the same chain, even if they’re located within a few miles of each other).

    Coupons vary too, as do coupon policies. Because of this, I’ve listed the stores where I most frequently find my stock up price. Also, it’s safe to assume I use coupons to achieve my stock up price at brick-and-mortar stores.

    Here are my stock up prices on Toiletries:

    • Toothpaste: $0.50 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid)
    • Toothbrushes: $0.99 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target)
    • Dental Floss: $0.50 or less, except Glide at $1 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target)
    • Mouthwash: $1 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid)
    • Body Wash: $1 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid)
    • Shampoo and Conditioner: $0.99 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid)
    • Non-disposable Razors: $1.99 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid)
    • Disposable Razors: Free (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid)
    • Shave Gel/Cream: $1 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid)
    • Bandages: $1.50 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target)
    • Cough Drops: $1.25 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid)
    • Contact Lens Solution: $1.99 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid)
    • Lip balm: Free, except Blistex at $0.75 or less (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Vons/Pavilions)

    The price of some items, such as moisturizer, vary so much that I can’t list them all here as I don’t buy every brand available. But if there’s something in particular that you wish I’d included, please let me know.

    Looking back at this particular list makes me miss the “good ol’ days” of about five years ago, when my stock-up price for almost everything on this list was FREE!
