The Clearance Rack

I love Shoppers! What Canadian girl doesn’t? I remember when I was younger and working as a waitress in Scarborough. Every week after my Friday night shift, I would stop at the SDM located at Kennedy and Eglinton and buy myself a little treat. There is something inside me that gets giddy when I walk up and down the aisles. I could spend hours just looking, touching and smelling.   I am sure that many of you can understand the soothing, relaxing, meditative affects that a leisurely walk down the drug store aisles has.

One of the best things in SDM is the clearance shelf. It’s usually located at the back of the store (sometimes there are two) that is where you find some great things on sale, and that is a place where you can MAXIMIZE your coupon savings!  Great example of a STEAL this weekend, I went out to my local shoppers yesterday and headed to the clearance rack, and I saw Garnier Ultra Lift anti-wrinkle firming serum for $6.00! This stuff is usually closer to $20.00. I grabbed 2 bottles and my coupon B2G$10 off, and once all was said and down the total cost to me - $1 each! 

So the moral of the story is simple, always have your coupons ready and always look at the clearance rack, you never know what you can get for almost FREE! Now if only I could remember to use my optimum card!

Happy Savings!

  1. I go straight to the clearance when I go out. Ive had so many peaople say your so cheap, or why do you want the reject things.

    I went shopping withn a friend the other day. I liked this shirt dent - $40.00, I walked over the clearance and the exact same shirt dent = $10.00. Clearly I bought the $10.00 shirt. I sat down and showed her how much I saved that day and she was shocked that I saved $150. Now this extrqa money went into more clothes, groceries, and savings.

    I guess many dont see it or care. I know many who I work with say I dont have the time. Yet, I work 2 jobs - days and nights then normally sleep the afternoons. I still have time to order freebies, coupons,and enter contests. Plus, still have a life and go out with friends on some of my nights off.

    You just need to have the right mind and see how much money you are throwing away.
