Here's a quick analysis I threw together assuming one person, with prices from Peapod (Stop & Shop / Giant's shop from home service).
|Shampoo||12 per year||$.89 - $9.99||$12 - $120|
|Conditioner||12 per year||$.89 - $15.99||$12 - $192|
|Toothpaste||4 per year||$1.99 - $4.99||$8 - $20|
|Body Wash||12 per year||$2.50 - $7.49||$30 - $90|
|Liquid Hand Soap||12 per year||$1.50 - $4.49||$6 - $54|
So for one person, depending on what products you start out using, you could save anywhere from $68 per year to $476 per year. I imagine that the people at the higher end of this spectrum aren't about to go out and start couponing, but they could save $400 a year by switching to the cheapest products.
And this is assuming only the simplest toiletries are taken into account. If you use shaving gel, hand soap, or other products I haven't listed here, think about how much more you might be able to save.
