Big Lots & Bed, Bath & Beyond Hauls = Great prices on beauty, hair products and more!
Inspired by the recent Drugstore.com 30% off make-up sale, I was on the hunt for new cosmetics this week and am always looking for great hair products to tame my curls.
If you are lucky enough to have a Bed, Bath & Beyond with a HBC (Health & Beauty Care Department), you can get ridiculous deals. The best BBB coupons are the $5 off $15+ purchase (33% off) but nothing wrong with a 20% off one item coupon. You can stack those AND use manufactures coupons, which count as cash. Plus, they usually have a clearance section, as you can see from my recent haul below. After checking out the same products at CVS, Walgreens & Drugstore.com, BBB had the lowest everyday price by a good $2-$3. I guess the drugstores mark up their products a bit more because they are always running the BOGO 50% off deals. BBB has a fantastic return policy and if you do return something, they will give you the coupon you used back!
Another great spot for deals is Big Lots. I prefer organic/natural products when I can get them and was surprised to see how many items BL has that meet my sensitive needs. I am new to E.L.F. products, which are not natural, but read about them at Nouveau Cheap; worth a try! Big Lots does not take manufacturer coupons but they do have a reward program.
