    Ok, I have a general question. I just recieved in the mail the $15 P&G Save-A-Lot coupon booklet. Now, can I use these coupons paired with OTHER manufacturers coupons that DON’T say “Save-A-Lot” on them?? Or since they are already manufacture coupons, I’m not able to stack them??? I would appreciate anyone that could answer. Thanks!

    Stefanie — you won’t be able to stack them, I am almost positive.

  • Stefanie says:

    Ok, that is what I thought, but it never hurts to ask LOL Thanks to both of you!

  • Nicole,

    I don’t know what Crystal does, but at my house, ALL haircuts are done at home (even mine). My husband cuts my hair for me, and sometimes he cuts the boys’ hair. Usually, I cut everyone’s but my own. It takes less time than driving to a salon, and it’s lots less money!

    I recomend buying a haircutting kit; Walmart has a nice one now that’s cordless (I HIGHLY recommend it); it is a lot less than the ones at Target. Walmart has a few different ones to choose from.

    Then, buy a separate pair of hair cutting scissors in the same aisle; the scissors that come with the kits are never very good. (The combs aren’t, either, but you probably already have a good comb; if not, get one there too).

    When you go to cut hair, you can use towels at home as capes if you want (kept closed with a clothespin). We did this for a while. Eventually, I was able to spend the money to buy two haircutting capes (one adult-sized and one child-sized) at beauty supply store. I really like these.

    We bought a hair cutting kit within the first 3 months of our marriage. It was a lot of money for us to spend at the time, but, as my husband pointed out, it was paid for with 4 of his $5 haircuts 🙂

    It took me a quite few years before I decided to have my husband cut my hair, but I am glad I have had him do it since then! It has saved us a lot of money, and I can have it cut as often as I like, instead of letting it grow a little longer to try to save money between cuts.
