Purchase the less expensive item if you are not tied to a certain name brand product.
Check out the papers, magazines, and online for sale items. Download and print out coupons. Don't just buy one or two sale items. Buy at least two or more of the items on sale. Double up on savings and use coupons on those name brand items.
Most stores place those expensive impulse buys around the checkout. So, while you are waiting in line the urge might hit you to buy over priced items that you really do not need at that time or perhaps any time.
Take advantage of these really easy solutions to avoid overspending on body care products or every day personal care items. Those who follow the ideas presented here should generally save hundreds per year on products.
