Extreme Coupon Shopping Trip

I know that quite a few people had some questions about that awesome Everyday Essentials coupon that we received in last weekend’s Red Plum.  I figured that the best way to answer all of your questions, was to make a quick trip to Acme myself! The Everyday Essentials coupon is for Buy One Everyday Essential Item, Get One Free, I was really curious to test this out on items that were part of the Buy 6, Save $3 Instantly deal and also on items that were already on sale Buy One, Get One Free! Oh, and the holiday napkins, well I might be a little early, but I just can’t resist getting in the spirit, and $0.50 for a package of napkins sounds good to me!

Just a note about the cotton squares, in the weekly add, it says that Everyday Essentials Cotton Squares are on sale buy one, get one free, however, it does show a picture of the Equaline, I would assume that this is their brand of cotton products, and I did not have any trouble using the coupon on the cotton squares!

So here’s what I did:


Don’t forget to check out the Acme Coupon Matchups before you shop!

Note from Cindy:  As most of you know, Melinda is out on maternity leave and Denise has joined the LRWC team in Melinda’s absence.  She is doing an awesome job and has been a HUGE help.  We are very happy to have her!

    Silly question is the everyday essential products
    Only sold at Acme? Was at shoprite today but forgot
    to check if they carry these products = / .
    Thanks Cindy for all you do ! I loved couponing
    however you helped me take it to another level .

    • I believe that this is a brand that is sold only through Acme and it’s affiliate stores. I know it’s not at ShopRite.

      We just moved from suburban PA. Two grocery stores there carried Everyday Essential but one is a small chain (Landis – I think about 5 stores) & the other is a solo grocery store called Hennings. Actually both were higher end grocery stores but with some killer sales. Hennings often had deals that were instant savings of maybe $10 maybe $5 off of a $15 or $20 purchase of products often including Everyday Essential & Stonefield Ice Cream (I assumed there was some connection between the two companies). The EE coupon kind of makes me want to take a trip out to Hennings although it’s a 4+ hour trip there & back for me now. In fact, I see on their website they are having that same deal on EE…. $10 off a $20 purchase…. see

        Yes, I’m going to an employee only event at my husband’s work. They don’t charge admission, but request that we bring a food donation for a shelter. My husband is counting on me to do a great job here.
