Saving Grace -- Introducing new Oblate program to help the monks

Look for this donation box at all future Oblate meetings
The Saving Grace
Oblate Gifts to the Monks of Personal Care Products

We Love Our Monks!  There is a new way to show our love and support for the monks of St. Leo Abbey.   The purpose is to help the monks keep their common supply room stocked with personal care products for the monks’ personal use.  If you wish to participate, please bring a donation of any personal care product to the Oblate meetings each month.   We will place a box in the Lake Room to collect your donations.  

Examples of items you may wish to donate are:  toothpaste, mouth wash, floss, toothbrushes, deodorant, body wash, shaving items, toilet paper, Qtips, shampoo, etc.   

The Saving Grace:
Helping the Monks for Less

There are good deals in the weekly advertising flyers that might help you purchase an item for the monks at a reduced cost.  If you have a coupon for these products you can reduce your out-of-pocket cost even more. 


Degree deodorant for .45 cents:  (Limit 1 per purchase).  Look for the green ”Score Big Savings” flyer on the Publix weekly advertisement display stand.  The green flyer has a photo of a football on the front.  Inside there is a coupon for $2.00-off Degree or Dove deodorant.  Publix sells some of the Degree deodorant for $2.45, making it just .45 with the coupon.  The coupon is valid through September 16.


Mitchum deodorant for .99 cents:  Pay $2.99, get back $2.00 in Register Rewards at check out to make the price .99 cents.  (Limit one per purchase).  


Notes for shopping at CVS:
You must have a CVS reward card to get these deals, free at the counter.
Extra Care Bucks are printed at the bottom of the receipt.
To save more money you can combine manufacturer coupons with your Extra Care Bucks.

Listerine Mouthwash for $1.99. (Limit of 2 per card):  Pay $2.99 with card, get back $1.00 in Extra Care Bucks at check out to make the price $1.99.  Need some ideas on how to use your $1 Extra Care Buck?   

Here are two ideas:  (1) use it to purchase the Colgate Optic White toothpaste (see below) and at checkout you will get another Extra Care Buck back (this toothpaste pays $1.50 Extra Care Bucks);  or, (2) use it to purchase either of the Suave sale products (see below).

Colgate Optic White toothpaste for $1.99. (Limit of 2 per card):   Pay $3.49, get back $1.50 in Extra Care Bucks at check out, making the price $1.99. 

Suave deodorant on sale for .99 cents.

Help in Getting Started.

I coupon every week and save a lot on all the products we use.  When giving to St. Leo Abbey we can make our money go farther by using some smart-shopper tips like the deals mentioned in this blog.  If you have questions, please post a comment.
