Our Deal of the Weekend

The chatter on Facebook this weekend was that Walmart was selling the Charmin Essentials 12 roll packages of toilet paper for $1.00 each. 

So, we headed out to Walmart and sure enough it was selling for $1.00 a package, so we purchased 15 packages. My daughter also had four $1.00 off coupons, so four of the packages were free. 

I'm not sure if it was a glitch or what, but this would normally sell for closer to $5 in my opinion. My daughter thinks it would have been over $7 based on other packages she saw. 

Our deal would have been at least $45 normally, but we bought it for $12 plus tax with the coupons. 

You may or may not still be able to find some today. People are still talking about finding it while others are having trouble with finding any. I've heard that it was a computer error and Walmart fixed the price at midnight last night. 

It really pays to read the frugal, couponing, money saving groups on Facebook because you don't know when something like this will pop up and you can save yourself some money. 

As always, your mileage may vary (YMMV).

  1. Terrific. Wish I had been pushing a shopping cart beside you.

  2. Excellent, amazing deal. Things like that do happen from time to time. A friend of mine recently bought a laptop for a great price. It was advertised wrong and quickly corrected, but she managed to get one before the error was discovered. I'm not on FB enough, maybe I should start looking into some of these groups.

    1. There are some great groups n FB, Mary Lou. Just type whatever you are looking for in the search box and groups will come up. Great deal on the laptop for your friend. :)

  3. what frugal Facebook pages do you follow if you do not mind me asking?

    1. Right now I am following "The Working Pantry", "It's Raining Pennies!", "Frugal Family Food", and "Unmarked Walmart Clearance". The raining pennies one is where we learned about the Walmart deal on tp. :) Hope that helps. :)
