Stocking up on cleaning supplies and paper products when prices are low, is one of the ways we keep our weekly shops simple and often under $100.
For a family of 6, that's not common, but it's definitely doable.
I have a stock up price for pretty much everything I buy. If you don't know what a good price is, it's hard to know when to buy just one or if you should stock up.
Laundry soap is something we go through a lot of! My stock up price for laundry soap is 10 cents a load.
Today and tomorrow, you can purchase Purex laundry soap for $2.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart. These are 32 load bottles. That's .9 cents a load, plus if you have a Shoppers Optimum Card, you will get points for buying it.
Shoppers Sunday/Monday deals are an excellent time to stock up on items like laundry soap, toilet paper, paper towels, toiletries and other shelf stable products.
I have used Purex with my HE machine and find it cleans just as well as any other soap. I also like that it's not strongly scented.
Another tip when your stocking up on these items is to do a quick check on smartsource.ca or any of the phone apps like Checkout 51 or CartSmart and see if you can combine deals.
It's not hard to get bottles of laundry soap for $1-2 by using this method.
The Purex laundry tabs are also on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart for $2.99 for 25 tabs - or 12 cents a load.
Laundry tabs are perfect for teenage kids doing their own laundry. They're not going to use too much soap because it's pre- measured and also less messy!
