    Best Deals of the Week

    I’ve compiled best deals available at the drugstores, Target, Ralphs/Kroger, and other stores. I stick to deals that don’t require too many or any obscure coupons, and I try to pick practical items that most people buy at some point.

    Use this list to decide which stores to hit this week, based on what you need. You might even use it to decide you can skip shopping for a week, because you don’t need what’s on sale.

    1. Cheap Purex Detergent at Rite Aid

    I have to admit that I don’t really like Purex laundry detergent, but if you use it, you can get a great deal at Rite Aid this week:

    BUY: 6 Purex Laundry Detergent @ $5.49 + B1G2 Free {price may vary by store}
    USE: $1.50/2 Purex Laundry Detergent printable
    Pay: $9.48
    Net Price: $1.58 each

    Ends 10/12.

    2. Cheap Hand Soap at Walgreens

    It’s been a long time since I’ve seen free hand soap available, and Softsoap in particular is difficult to get for under $1 because of restrictions on their coupons. So this is a rare deal:

    BUY: 1 Softsoap Hand Soap, 7.5 oz @ $0.99 with in-ad coupon
    USE: $0.35/1 Softsoap Liquid Hand Soap from 9/22 Smart Source
    Pay: $0.64

    The in-ad coupon has a limit of 4, although in my experience, stores won’t enforce the limit unless they’re running low on stock.

    Ends 10/12.

    3. Free Copy Paper at Staples

    BUY: 1 Staples 8½” x 11″ Multipurpose Paper Ream @ $6.99
    USE: Staples coupon {will deduct $3.99}

    4. Free or Cheap Pantene at Target

    This may be a regional deal, but is worth looking for at your store if you go this week:
