Michelle's Markdowns: Free or cheap lip gloss, Tylenol patches, yogurt and more

WILMINGTON, NC (WSFX) –  There are quite a few good deals this week as always.  You can find a few things for free or next to nothing, including yogurt, lip balm, toothpaste and Tylenol patches.

There are a few freebies this week.  Thanks to Delly's Deals, we found a Tylenol Precise product for free at Walgreens.  The Precise heating pads normally cost $7.99 but they're on sale for $5 right now.  If you use the $5 off coupon from last Sunday's paper, you'll get it for free.  This deal will last until the weekend.

Also, Cilla Saving in Wilmington let us know about a Yo Crunch yogurt at Lowes Foods.  If you use the .29-cent coupon from February 5th's newspaper, you'll get it for about .02-cents!  We bought it Harris Teeter for .12-cents, but we're not complaining.

The Krazy Coupon Lady is also showing some free Welch's Fizz juice at Target!

Here's what we bought from Harris Teeter.  We saved about 65-percent when you count the savings our raincheck will save us.  We couldn't find Nivea lipgloss but since we got a raincheck, we'll be able to get our own deal when the shelves are restocked!  We ended up spending about $29 for $115 worth of items.
