Shampoo was actually FREE!!!

March 29th, 2011 at 11:56 am

I got my two rebate checks for the Renpure organic shampoo today. I bought them BOGO at Walgreens for $6.99. So I got four for $13.98. I just got two rebate checks to cover the total in the mail today.

I was skeptical that they would really be free, as rebates are usually hit and miss, and I didn't know if the company would honor them, considering the BOGO deal. But they did. It actually worked!

Can you tell I am a coupon newbie?

In other news...

We close on the new house on Thursday. Bye Bye money. It was nice knowing you!

And a house two blocks away went on the market today-- for $139,000. My heart sank when I saw the listing. Same price we are going for, but 900 square feet more. But, I double checked property records and the reality is, it's the same size house as ours-- they just fudged the sq feet in the listing to include the basement. a Big no no, but what am I supposed to do? If I include the basement, I'll be at 2850, as opposed to 1450. Will people even come see my house--which is actually bigger than that one-- if I am honest about the sq feet?

I wish this weren't so complicated.

    Gotta love free shampoo! I have just gotten back into the coupon thing. I got two toothbrushes for free, one a reach and one an oral b. I love finding the deals.

    There are two homes in my neighborhood that went up for sale on the same day. I sold my house right next door to another house for sale (it went up before us I think)and we sold first. We only had it on the market for 5 days...back in the boom of 2006 Our just showed better and had more improvements. They were not exactly equal in size or layout either.

    That is a tough one on square footage. Why not play it by the book, but mention the size of the basement and if finished or not in the body of the listing? Make sure the pictures posting in the listing are pristine!! I've seen people vitamin bottle in listing pictures. Yuck!

    They will still come to see your house. People who are really interested don't rule out properties without seeing them, and I think everyone knows that square footage can be deceiving.
