wow, i totally forgot about being able to use 2 coupons for B1G1 items!! I'm definitely going to try this tomorrow.

Anyways, I got the Air Wick on Saturday... it does not smell good... there are two versions of this at CVS stores, one that comes in a regular box and the other that comes in a plastic wrap thing. (check out what they look like here http://www.frugalshoppingideas.com/newbie-guide/my-cvs-trip-7-12-7-18/)

The box ones have an area on the top right where you can scratch and sniff.. DO IT IF YOU'RE GOING TO BUY IT. it smells awful. i didn't believe it so I took it home and tried it out. even MORE awful!!!

you can't even turn it off without taking the batteries out.

i suggest giving it away or something. =(

Frugalshoppingideas, thanks for the heads-up on the stinky air freshener. I almost bought one on Sunday, but then I decided against it. I can't use them (asthma doesn't alow it), but I usually give them to my friend at work. I can imagine what she would've thought about that!

the link to the $1/off the colgate toothbrushes is working but the coupon seems to be gone???

Looks like the Colgate promos have changed. There are now coupons for Palmolive Pure & Clear ($.75), Colgate Sensitive Toothpaste ($1), Softsoap SPA Radiant body wash ($.75), and Colgate Wisp mini-brushes ($.50). You'll find them here: http://www.colgate.com/app/Colgate/US/Corp/Consumers/SpecialOffers.cvsp
Hope that helps with another deal!
