Giveaway: Flip.Dose.Done! Purex Powershot #Review


Savin’ It Up was provided a sample pack to facilitate this review.

Since becoming a Purex Insider, I have fallen in love with the Purex brand. It keeps my clothes clean and with their different scents-smelling fresh. The newest member of the Purex product line is Purex Powershot.  Purex Powershot detergent does the measuring for you by taking the guesswork out of measuring.  The bottle automatically measures for you so that you just flip the top and pour; fairly simple right!!  I was provided a bottle of Purex Powershot to use.  I first thought it was a stain fighter and not actual detergent since the bottle is very large.  I wondered how heavy it would be when trying to pour into the laundry, but it has a handle for easy grip.  It does work as advertised without having to pour into a cup to get the correct measurement; 1 flip of the top and it already premeasured.



Information about Purex Powershot

  • Very simple to use: 1 flip for regular loads and 2 flips for large or extra dirty loads
  • Perfect for everyday laundry or heavily soiled loads
  • Available in 2 fragrances:  Mountain Breeze and Natural Elements
  • Visit for additional information
  • Purex UltraPacks contains a full loads worth of liquid detergent
  • Visit for more information

I love every product in the Purex line and am in love with the new Purex Powershot

Purex is also having a sweepstakes where you can enter to win. 

  • Three grand prize winners will receive a brand new Washer & Dryer set

Tipsy Tuesday: 8 Tips For Building Your Stockpile

Let me start of by saying that couponing is hard work and takes time and dedication on your part in order for you to see the results.  You will not see a stockpile over night, but if you keep at it, you will have one in no time.

When I started couponing many, many years ago…there were more deals, the coupon values were higher and there was plenty of stock on the shelves to buy in multiples.  Now you will see that this is not the case.  Each week, you may spot a couple of deals at a few stores..but that’s okay because that’s all we need to build our stockpile; a few deals here and there.  The coupon values are not what they used to be but I still have managed to maintain my stockpile.  Now you may run into a issue with stock on hand due to the popularity of using coupons, but this is a good thing.  Although it may be frustrating to have your deals handy only to find that nothing on your list is in stock, but I am happy to see that people are saving money. But don’t let that discourage you from couponing.  Deals rotate often.

Here are a few tips on getting started on building your stockpile:

1. In order to buy in multiples to get that stockpile, you must collect multiple sets of paper.  My rule of thumb is to collect enough papers for each person in your household.  If you live in the Los Angeles Area, the best paper to collect would be the LA Times as they contain the best coupons.  You can also ask friends and family to save those inserts.  Having multiple coupons available would allow you to purchase multiples at one time.  If toothpaste is priced $1 and you happen to have a $1 coupon, you can score each tube for FREE.  If you happen to have 5 coupons, you can add that to your stockpile.

2. Know when to shop.  Just because you have a coupon for an item does not necessarily mean you need to use it.  The goal of using coupons is to save money, but you want to save it at its lowest price point.  In June, you will see sales on BBQ items such as hot dogs, BBQ and salad dressing.  If you have a coupon for these, you could score them free or next to it.  So the goal would be to wait until its on sale to use your coupon.

3. Understand your store sales ad.  In my area, the store sales ad are available Tuesday through the mail for a Wednesday start date.  Scan the ads to see what items are on sale and check to see if you have a coupon for it.

4. Establish your lowest price point.  Because I have been using coupons so long, I know what goes on sale and how often.  For people just starting out, it will take some time.  I will never pay more that $1 for a box of cereal , but for someone starting out with coupons and have always paid $4 for a box of cereal, they may find that getting cereal for $2 a box with a coupon is a steal.  Both ways will save you money but the lowest price point would have to be determined by you.

5. Understand your stores Coupon Policy.  Some stores limit you to the amount of coupons you can use per day or per transaction.  This could hinder your ability to buy in multiples in one trip.  For instance, Dollar tree only accepts 2 printable coupons per day and Ralphs limits you to 4 “Like ” coupons per transaction (4 of the same kind).  By understanding your stores coupon policy will help you plan your trips better.

6. Make a list. Make a list of the things you use often.-nothing like starting a stockpile of things you know you are not going to use, it would defeat the purpose.  Make a list of all of your toiletries  and pantry items that you use most often.

7. You don’t have to buy it just because its FREE.  Have you heard the saying “If Its Free, it for Me”?  Just because its free doesn’t mean you need to run to the store and grab it.  What if you don’t use it or even know someone who will?  What if it can’t be donated?  You will then have items taking over your space and its stuff that you will never use.

8. Set aside a stockpile budget.  Each week I go shopping for those things that I need but I also have a small budget ($10) that I use weekly to buy those things that I can stockpile.  If I go over that $10, then I will hope that some of things go on sale the following week.  I stick to a strict budget.  My family needs to eat but its also nice to have those items available in the event you run out.

Building a stockpile takes work but it is worth it in my book.  If I spot deodorant on sale for $.50 each and can buy 5, It will last for a few months.  Imagine having to run to the store to buy deodorant at regular price (between $2-$4) each time.
