I Really Love Clearance Stuff

EDIT - Almost forgot! The Gillette shampoos are a P&G product so they'll count for the P&G coupon rebate. :)

I noticed that a lot of the hair colors are on clearance at WAGs. I just cut out all of the Nice & Easy coupons - if I can get these for free then I plan on donating them to the local assistance agency. I bet they hardly every get stuff like that!

My CVS did this "will be available in the afternoon" crap last year 3 or 4 times. I dont understand their marketing reason for it at all. But then again, my cvs took the monthly books away for the last three months and now they are back. They like to keep us rolling with changes. ;)

That clearnace could almost get me to color my hair again! :-)

Sarah,
I was thinking the same thing! I was really hoping I could find some hair color close to my color now, but it was all really, really blond colors so I'm just going to donate them.

Lisa,
Its actually in the circular if you look close. I didn't see the razors when I was shopping yesterday, but just thought "that's odd". Then I saw on the boards (emhalf I think?) that someone posted it won't be available until 1/30.

Precious,
It really was a great deal! And some of the hair colors were in the wrong spot, but the manager price adjusted them down to $3.19 anyway. Gotta love that!
