My family was at Target without me because I had the cold crud that has been going around, that's why there was no post last week. According to them, they were approached at Target by a woman who said that she had seen us at various stores around town and thought we were doing a great job and loved to see how much we are able to save. Too funny.
Though that is better than the alternative which seems to be throwing us scathing looks at the register. So tired of that.
I have a ton of photos to share this time since half were from last week. Let's start with last week.
On target.com you can get coupons for all of the things seen here.
The Milk Bone was a great stack with a manufacturer's coupon that may still be available on coupons.com. Both coupons are $1 off and in most of the country these are around $3 making them under $1 a bag.
The pasta coupon is $1 off 3 and these (in most of the country) are on sale for $1 each making them 67 cents. The ketchup coupon is actually $2 off the 38oz or larger ketchup or three Ore-Ida potato products. At the time the coupon came out, the ketchup was $1.99 a bottle making them free. The price here went up a few days after the coupon came out, but it's still a pretty good deal for 69 cents. The antacid coupon is $1.50 off and these were $1.74 but are now $2.04. The Up n Up cotton coupon is 50 cents off and these small packs are 87 cents making them 37 after the coupon.
The M&Ms were a coupon stack of $1.50/2 mannyQ and $1.50/2 Target coupon making them $1.49 each. The Shick razors had a $5 gift card when you buy 2 so along with my $4 mannyQ they were under $2.50 each.
I only went in for free toothpaste.
In the circular, they advertised the Colgate having an ECB of $4 making them 99 cents each. I had snagged some blinkie coupons a couple months ago for $1 off one of these so I actually got paid a penny to buy them!
My daughter has started using the Sally Hansen polish strips that we picked up on clearance at Target. With our $3 coupon and a ECB of $5 when you spend $10, we picked these up for $1.99 each.
The Chex Mix and Combos were on a surprise sale for $1 each. I had coupons for 50 cents off 2 so grabbed most of these for 75 cents each.
Colgate was $3.49 with a $2.99 register reward that wound up being $3 plus I had a 50 cent coupon so again made a penny on Colgate.
Olay was on sale and I couldn't pass it up.
Jelly beans were 2 for 4. Had to.
I'm really beginning to love Fry's. Their "every coupon is $1" is pretty great and I've been able to save a bunch. The Hamburger Helper was 88 cents and I had 75 cents off 3 coupons so they wound up being 55 cents each. The French's onions are on sale for 2/$4 and I had a 50 cent coupon so paid $1.
They had a buy 8 save $4 sale. This made the tp $2.49 each and $1.99 with my 50 cent coupon. The Lay's were B1G1 at $4.30. With two $1/1 coupons I paid $1.15 each.
Last week I spent $265 on $509 worth of product for a 48% savings.
And now this week.
There is a breakfast sale at Target this week. Buy 5 of the selected items and get a $5 gift card. We did one transaction of 4 cereals and 1 juice. The juice is $3, $2 after the gift card and $1 after the $1 coupon from last Sunday's paper. The cereal was $2.49, $1.49 each after the gift card and 80 cents after my coupons.
I did the same transaction again with 2 juice and 3 cereals that wound up being $1.05 each after coupons. The Jimmy Deal was 99 cents each after the $1.50 coupon that is available. I also picked up another ketchup, more antacid and cotton rounds.
The Magic Coupon Machine is giving out coupons for $1 off 2 select Kellogg's cereals which are on sale for 2/$4. Along with my coupon I paid $1 each for the Corn Flakes. The Rice Krispies were $1.50.
Jelly beans are 99 cents with a 99 cent ECB making them free.
Hershey's Easter candies are 2/$5 and when you spend $15 you get a $5 ECB. I also had $2 off 3 coupons so when I bought 6 packages they were $6 or $1 each.
M&Ms are 4/$12 with a $ECB. I had $1.50/2 coupons so they came out to $1.25 each.
One of my favorite deals of the week, the tuna is on sale for 99 cents and in the Walgreen's monthly coupon book there is a coupon for 50 cents off of one making them 49 cents each. The Miracle Whip is on sale for $2.99 and I had a $1/1 coupon. The deodorant is on sale for 2/$6, the coupon book has a $1/2 coupon and there were $2/1 coupons in the paper making these 50 cents each. I think I am way overstocked on deodorant now. The Puffs were 99 cents each and I had 25cents/3 coupons.
There were 75 cents off one of the new Ten sodas in the paper. These were on sale for 88 cents each so only 7 cents each!!
The flower was on clearance for $1. Bologna 88 cents. The Pink Lemonade cookies were calling to me.
I hit Target again because yesterday after shopping I found out about the toothbrush deal. In the paper last Sunday were coupons for $1 off 1 or 2 Oral-B toothbrushes (depending on the style). They are all buy 4 and get a $5 gift card as well as being on sale for $2.25 each. So:
$2.25 - $1Q - $1.25 (giftcard) = Free when you buy 4.
Since they had a problem ringing them up, I paid 38 cents for the toothbrushes on my first transaction.
Second transaction was the razors and cotton rounds. The razors are $9.49, I had $4 off 1 mannyQs plus $5 off 2 Target Qs. I paid $2.99 each for them which is a little higher than I would have liked but my stash from last year is getting low.
This week I paid $68.34 on $237.60 in product for a 71% savings.
Til next time...
