So I went shopping at Target last night. I got out by myself for a change and took my time. I did two transactions. For the first transaction, I got three 170 ounce jugs of Purex laundry detergent. It was a special that worked out at first to 3 jugs for about $24.00 and you get a $5 gift card when you buy it. I already had a $5 gift card from my shopping there a few weeks ago, so that dropped it to $19.00. I had a coupon for $3/3 that was a Target coupon. that dropped it down to $16. I also had a manufacturer’s coupon that JUST came out in today’s Red Plum that came in our local free newspaper (so I’m assuming they will be the inserts in this Sunday’s paper). That coupon was $3/2, so that dropped it to $14. $14 for 3 170-ounce jugs of laundry detergent. I saved $10 AND got a $5 gift card which I used on the last transaction.
I’ll post pictures tomorrow of my haul (the pictures are still on my phone and I’m exhausted and will share tomorrow), but the total before coupons and the $5 gift card was at $99 and some change. WOW was I nervous! No way did I bring that much money with me and there wasn’t that much in my checking account either. I was sure thrilled to watch that number drop and drop and drop as she applied the coupons and the gift card. It dropped from $99 down to $32 🙂 I’m loving Target 🙂
My favorite thing I picked up? Snicker’s Ice Cream Bars. I’ve been on a Snicker’s Ice Cream bar kick all summer and turns out even though it’s high in fat and sugar, it’s also high in things that my body craves (and I have to take supplements for) being calcium in the ice cream, potassium in the peanut butter and magnesium in the peanuts.
One local grocery store has a box of these yummy things for $5.99 for a 6-count box. What??!! That’s CRAZY. So…what did I pay?
Well if you go to my coupons.com page, you’ll see there is a new printable coupon for $1.50 off a 6-count box of these. Target has them priced at $2.99, so the $1.50 drops that down to $1.49. But WAIT…that’s not all! 🙂 Target has a mobile coupon for $1.00 off a frozen food that is $1 or more…every one of the frozen items you buy. So that drops every box I bought down to just 49 cents! I had 6 coupons (three computers, printing 2 printables per computer), so I bought 6 boxes of these…36 frozen Snicker’s Ice Cream bars for just $2.94!! That’s half of what Buehler’s wanted for just ONE box. Wow 🙂
I also bought 3 Venus Razors for 99 cents each as I had a $5 off each one coupon that expired last night. Anyway…more to come on that 🙂
So that’s my haul for the day and pictures will be posted probably tomorrow. I’m pooped. Have a great day, everyone!!
