To be fair, the excitement was because of free toilet paper. Or nearly free, anyway.
In my travels at BlogHer, I ended up with a $20 credit at Soap.com, the new sister site of Diapers.com. The problem was, I couldn’t find anything to buy. I recently stocked up on sunscreen. Thanks to our recent Philosophy stock-up we have more lotions and cleansers than we know what to do with. In fact, I’m pretty well stocked on most drugstore-type items, which is mostly what Soap.com carries. (Though I should point out that no physical drugstore I know of has such an admirably/alarmingly thorough sexual wellness department.)
Then I remembered that we’re running low on toilet paper. In fact, we’re almost always running low on toilet paper because, despite my best efforts, I never remember to hit the sales. Instead, we wait until it’s threatening to be a very embarrassing emergency and then just try to find the best deal available.
Not this time, though!
I loaded up my cart with some big ole packs of two-ply tissue (yes, I know it’s more wasteful and expensive, but I do have a few standards, dammit) and checked out. After the $20 credit, I paid a whopping $2.34 for the equivalent of 72 rolls. According to a note I got, they’re all ready to ship, so tomorrow those rolls will begin their journey to our house, where we will greet them with open arms. (If you watch commercials, you know that it’s the thing to hug or squeeze your toilet paper.)
It’s a proud moment when you realize your mood just lifted because you bought toilet paper.
But I don’t say this just to brag. I was given a code at checkout that offers 15% off new customer purchases at Soap.com/Diapers.com. At checkout, just type in “SEAT2340” and the discount will be applied. (You do have to be new to both Soap.com and Diapers.com.)
Other discounts/savings of note:
I have a 15% off Timex discount code. It’s valid through December 31st. “TICKIN10” Based on its vagueness, I’m guessing it’s good for multiple users. Try it and find out.
If you like social buying clubs, Jasmere is sort of a high-end version, but your price can be less than advertised. Each day’s deal is at least 50% off retail. But, if enough people sign on, the price drops. The more people, the bigger the price drop. No one is charged until the end of the deal, when the final price has been determined. I think it’s pretty cool.
I shipped nearly 20 lbs of freebies to my mom. She plans to parcel them out on her blog each week, so be sure to stay tuned to her posts. In fact, you have until 9 p.m. (PDT) to enter this week’s contest for a Total Energy pack from The Body Shop.
