Through couponing we've had the opportunity to try out several products for free or nearly free. Before marriage I was very set in my ways of what products I used and my husband didn't really care one way or the other. While I remain loyal to certain products (Colgate toothpaste, Charmin or Cottonelle toilet paper, Secret deodorant, Venus razors, etc....) I have been able to try new products and find that quite comparable to my old favorites. This comes in handy when coupons are abundant for the new products. For example, I've always been a Cascade fan when it comes to my dishwasher--but I recently got Finish dishwasher tabs for less than a $1 a box and we are really enjoying them! Tide (and the Costco equivalent) is usually what fills our washing machine, but Purex has been winning here when we're able to get bottles so cheap after coupons.
On Sunday my husband and I made our way around to three stores to stock up on some necessities & use up some coupons for free/nearly free items.
