    I was at SDM this morning to buy a stamp for a trade, and of course looked at the clearance section which had just been restocked. I noticed they had a few Gillette body washes on for $2 each. I got out my brandsaver coupons and had exactly 4x $1 off Gillette deodorants/bodywashes. Now my husband will (continue to) smell nice and clean!!

    Now I have a question for everyone regarding "shelf clearing." Would you consider it to be shelf clearing if there are only 4 of an item left? Also, does the unwritten 'no shelf clearing' rule apply to a clearance section? Just wondering. I wasn't sure if I should take all 4 bottles but I figured these get used in about 3 months or so, so this was a reasonable amount for my family. Let me know your thoughts! I just started couponing earlier this year so I definitely want to keep doing it in a good way.

    Great Deal. And totally OK to take all 4. I think The shelf-clearing complaints are usually aimed at people who buy an absurd amount of a sale item and leave none for others.

    4 is fine. I completely agree that clearance is something they want gone ASAP. Now that being said if its one of those WM clearances and there is a whole wall of H&S shampoo DON'T take more then you can use!!! Same goes with those Aveeno packs, don't take more then YOU can use. Its great that you want to donate them and all but a lot of us would love to actually get them and use them.

    You are correct about the coupons, but these were the regular sized bottles.

    You shouldn't even be asking that question IMO......if it's on the shelf it is there to be sold.....clearance section or not. It's nobody's business how many you buy.
