Not much longer and we will have a steady stream of warm weather. Not this funky bipolar stuff that Mother Nature has been giving us. It’s April and we have snow in the forecast. How crazy is that?
Scott and I work from home and lousy weather usually keeps us stuck inside with the exception of errands for the kids. A trip to the store may be drab for some people, but the store is a much needed relief for cabin fever. Once the warmer weather hits, our schedules change dramatically. We get outside, work in the garden or yard, clean the garage, detail the cars or go for a run. The store is not a priority. It’s inside and after too much shut-in time, I want to be outside doing… anything.
Translation: Time to stock up on household goods, personal hygiene products and cleaning supplies. When I’m able to match up a sale with coupons or even shop directly from home, I’m going to do it! As luck would have it, the April Stock up and Save Event is happening at Walmart! It features quality name brand products that are regulars in my arsenal so stocking up will be easy and I’ll even save some money!
Not only was I able to stock up on some of my favorite household brands including Tide, Bounty, Dawn and Crest, now I won’t have to take valuable time to go when the weather gets nicer. These are the items included in the promotion and when I paired it with the coupons, I saved even more!
- Bounty Select-A-Size 12-Pack Mega Roll (Print Bounty coupons)
- Tide 100 oz. Original HE Liquid Laundry Detergent (Print Tide coupons)
- Pampers Swaddlers Huge Box (Print Pampers coupons)
- Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Shampoo, 23.7 oz.
- Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Conditioner, 23.7 oz.
- Febreze Air Effects Linen & Sky (Print Febreze coupons)
- Dawn Original 75 oz.
- Gillette MACH3 Sensitive Disposable 3-Pack

- Gain 100 oz. Original Liquid Laundry Detergent (Print Gain coupons)
- Charmin Ultra Strong 36 Double-Roll Pack (Print Charmin coupons)

As I’ve said before, sometimes the brand does make a difference and sometimes mom knows best. That’s how I fell in love with Cascade in the first place. But other products I’ve discovered on my own and have incorporated into our everyday lives when traveling or making something like Mason Jar Milkshakes.
With the April Stock Up and Save Event, I was able to take advantage of great prices and as I mentioned before, even matched several coupons. I wasn’t the perfect thrifter though because I missed out on one promotion! Had I realized Ibotta would be running a promotion starting today, I would have saved even more! Not familiar with Ibotta? It’s an app that offers cash back bonuses for specific purchases. It’s easy to use and doesn’t cost anything except the time to scan the barcode to make sure you have the correct product in your shopping cart. I’ve been using it for a few years and have been able to earn a few extra dollars here and there. It was harder in the beginning when only certain stores were available but they’ve since expanded their network and it’s even better!
If you prefer to be doing anything else but don’t want to miss out on details about the promotion, visit the April Stock Up & Save Event on Facebook to learn more about how to receive reminders throughout the month. Of course, you can visit the Stock Up and Save website, follow the #StockUpSave hashtag or visit Walmart on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for more details!
What will you be doing with the time you save by stocking up?
