    So I had to take a one hour break from moving to go shopping and coupon hunting quickly - Just to maintain my sanity!

    On the way to Pricesmart Foods to pm Walmarts Palmolive and stack for 6 free bottles I was at a red light and a speeding truck went to turn left toooo fast and a 12 pk case of Ginger Ale went flying out of his box.

    The box broke open and cans of pop went flying everywhere - Of course people started getting out of there cars scurring around to take the cans of pop. I on the other hand notice the cardboard box had landed within three metres of my van
    and I could clearly see the markings on the box indicating there was a coupon inside - So instead of running like a mad women after rolling cans of pop in an intersection I quietly hopped out of my Van and picked up the box.

    Since the 12 pk is on sale this week for $2.97 I am quite happy!!

    I then went on my way to look for coupons and score some deals and now It's back to moving...

    Thanks for reading my little brag.

    Oh silly me I just grabbed some of the CZ's for pickles and relish - Found a couple other tearpads nothing that exciting though - and I went to Safeway to get my Salad Mix for 69 cents and $1.50 off 4L milk.

    Haha! I think you did the right thing. The pop will explode and would take a lot more time to chase after
    Apply every possible promo code to your cart, at every store that you visit (and get points for cash back on top of that?). It's sweet and easy with HONEY.

    My logic would be:
    Cans = lots of competition
    Cans = 10-15 cents value each

    Box = zero competition
    Box = 1 piece $1.50 value
    TRADING COUPONS: FOOD, DENTAL, SOAP / BODY WASH/DEODORANT, SPECIAL CREAMS, MAKEUP, HEALTH, AIR FRESHNERS, HAIRCOLOUR, CLEANING, HAIRCARE/ SHAMPOO, DIAPERS, SHAVING, PET, MEDICINE,LAUNDRY, STORES, LONDON BUSINESSES, FAST FOOD, BATTERYPRODUCTS, CHILDREN FOOD and TOY, SMOKING CESSATION and lots more ​!!

    I can't believe people would be getting out of their cars to chase cans of ginger ale.

    The No Frills in Innisfil is advertising 18 cans for $4.99 not as good a deal as out west. Check around though!
