In 2014, my sister in law got me into couponing. I wasn't extreme by any means but could easily stock up on everyday essentials like toothpaste, mouthwash, detergent, deodorant, and hair products. In fact, I haven't couponed for almost a year now and I STILL have a stockpile of some of these items. I only did it a few months and then life got in the way. I got a new job and moved and couponing was no longer something I could swing.
Thankfully, places like Walmart have great everyday prices on brand name items, even better right now! During the whole month of April, Walmart is having a huge savings event on must have household items. While I no longer coupon I'm always on the lookout for the best deals and steals to save my family money especially in the spring.
For our family, the spring is not just about tidying the house it means it's baseball season and we are super busy. There's baseball practices, baseball games, and road trips practically every day. This leaves us a very limited amount of time to go to the store and it's essential for us to have the basics items we use every day at hand.
There are some household items that you can never have too much of. There's no such thing as having too much dish soap, laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, or toothpaste. Parents, you know you can never have too many diapers. And us pet owners can never have enough air freshener. It's just not possible!
Luckily, it's these kind of everyday essentials Walmart's April Stock Up and Save Event is all about. And it's not just your dollar store blow joe off brand items it's top brands like Tide, Bounty, Pampers, Venus, Gillette, and more. The brands you want!

I just had to get in on the savings so I stopped by my local Walmart and bought several items that I KNOW I'll need this baseball season. Detergent is a given. We normally have laundry out the wazoo anyway but then throw in muddy baseball pants and I could literally be doing laundry every moment of every day. Whoever thought of having white baseball pants was a good idea obviously doesn't do the laundry. It's a nightmare so having a stockpile of laundry detergent is a must.
I also got some dish soap and shampoo in attempts to clean up ourselves and the house in the midst of baseball. Some days there may be a game that lasts till 9pm at night and then we have to turn around for warmups at 8am the next morning. Having these essentials stocked up ensures we (and our house) don't look like total slobs.
I also bought some toothpaste and air freshener to keep our mouths and house smelling their best. No one wants to smell morning breath at an early baseball game! And I don't want to smell cat litter first thing when I walk in the door after being out all day. Febreeze is amazing. That's saying something considering I have three cats!
I know parents of infants are rejoicing that they included diapers in the April Stock Up & Save Event. I know I would be. I remember how I could never have enough diapers when my kids were babies. They went through them like they were nothing so I always bought a huge box and looked out for deals like this event. Today, I am just happy I am able to buy these name brand diapers for a baby shower gift. Pampers Swaddlers were always my favorite!
Right now you can make the April Stock Up & Save Event even sweeter with the Ibotta app. If you haven't heard of Ibotta you're missing out. Ibotta allows you to get a rebate from items you would buy anyway just by submitting your receipt and verifying your purchases. It's a great way to get some cash back. And right now some of these great products from P&G are on Ibotta giving you a double savings. Win, win!

These deals look great! I wish there was a Walmart near us.
I love stocking up on household essentials because it is a great way to save some money. Also, I never have to worry about running out of the products that we use daily.
We are big fans of the febreeze in this house! It always smells so good!
We definitely stock up on essentials. It almost always saves money and time.

I used to coupon a lot as well. I haven’t done it in YEARS and I am still using trash bags that I got a really great deal on. Now, we do a lot of shopping at Walmart. We save so much money.
I really have to try couponing at some stage. I’m always on the hunt for better bargains. Thanks for the heads up, will certainly try these.
Like you, I am also on the lookout for good deals especially when it comes the the essentials, like soaps, shampoos, detergents, etc. It’s so nice to be able to get everything you need without spending too much. I love this deal, Walmart is really awesome! Thanks for the heads-up!
I am always in awe of couponers. I don’t think it’s something I would be very good at, but there have been a few times where I’ve considered it!
I didn’t know anything about the stock up and save sale. This is wonderful. I will definitely have to take advantage of the sale.

We just love sale and discounts! It is the most practical way to save money since all of us are consumers. It can create a good adjustments with budgeting when you get discounts and sales.
My daughter is starting t-ball this year so I’m nervous about adding another activity into the mix! Not that I mind putting off cleaning while we do all of them… Lol. You are right, WalMart does have the best price for most things, but I just hate going there. I’d rather spend a little more at Target where everyone is friendly!
I’m sorry you have mean people at your Walmart. Maybe try a different one 🙂
I love stocking up! It makes me feel like the world is in order! When I run out of things, I feel disorganized. Boo.
Walmart always has great deals! Would love to go to check this out!
