Travel Tip Tuesday…

Another way I’m able to travel inexpensively is to combine travel sized products with coupons… This way… when it comes time to pack for a trip not only am I able to save space in my carry on luggage… but I don’t have to lug a bunch of full sized toiletry products back home with me either… By leaving the full size goods at home… I have more room for clothing…  Plus… I’ll typically use up my travel sized products while on vacation… in turn freeing up valuable space  for souvenirs 🙂

Here’s a few  items I found for free or ultra cheap on my last trip to Target…

*Please note the purchase price will be adjusted down at the register as per the Target Coupon Policy*

Degree Deodorant for only .97 cents…  The deodorant is FREE  when paired with the $1.00 ANY Degree Product coupon from the 3/27 RP

Head & Shoulders Shampoo… Only $1.07  FREE after coupon.

(This coupon came in the P&G booklet sent out by Albertsons)

Secret Clinical $2.49… FREE with the recent P&G  coupon booklet Albertson’s mailed out.  I have no idea if this was a random mailer or if it has something to do with the Albertson’s card.

Vaseline Lotion… only .29 cents after you use the $1.00 off 3/27 RP coupon

And here’s my favorite travel sized coupon …

$1.00 off  ANY Tide Product…

I like getting these travel sink 3 packs just in case I need to rinse something small like a swimsuit in the sink while I’m on vacation.  This particular Tide coupon came from the P&G savings booklet  However… It seems like every other P&G insert usually has a $1.00 off coupon for ANY Tide product in it… the current P&G insert only has a .35 cents of ANY Tide product coupon… so be on the lookout for the $1.00 coupon next time around so you can score some travel sink packs too.USA (Eyewitness Travel Guides)

    You can get small containers for shampoo, lotion, etc, anywhere, and they’re very inexpensive. Just fill them with product from home, cheap and easy. Also, hotels provide that stuff. Unless you’re really brand loyal, the hotel-supplied stuff is just fine. And since the brands available in travel-size items are really limited, so if you’re going to just use whatever brand you can find, you may as well use the hotel stuff.

    In my experience (I travel several times a year) the lower-cost hotel chains provide the most in free toiletries — toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. — in case you forget something. The more expensive hotels will charge you more. Last summer I paid $7.50 — that’s right $7.50 — for a travel-size tube of toothpaste at a high-end resort in an expensive city that I stayed in on a business trip. Of course I didn’t know about that charge until I was checking out and had already consumed it, and my chin just about hit the counter. For vacations, I stick to lower cost chain hotels, and I’ve never been charged for a travel-sized tube of toothpaste.

    This is not to say that I always plan on the hotel providing toothpaste. I plan on a hotel to provide shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion with the room. Other stuff is just if I forget or run out.

    For stains, I take along a Tide to-go stick. Works great and doesn’t take up much space at all. I’ve never used detergent to rinse out a swim in a hotel — I just use water.

    It seems like a waste to me to use a coupon on a travel-size item, given that I can only print 2 printable coupons and only get 2 (usually) of newspaper inserts. I’d rather wait for a good deal and use my coupons to get full-size product cheaply. But that’s just me.
