My Nampa Target trip

I don't have a whole lot of time, Larry is chomping at the bit to get the camper loaded and ready to go, but I wanted to quickly let everyone know about my Target deal this morning. My Albertson's doubles were AWESOME as well, but I don't have time to list every deal I get. :-) (Free Smore's stuff and 8 free Treetop juice boxes. all total 24 juice boxes... totally free)

Anyway back to my Target deal: 2 Kashi Go Lean Waffles, 3 bxs. 100 Cal. oreo cakesters, 3 bxs. Ritz Bits cheese crackers, 1 Lipton cold brew, 4 sugar free Kool-aid mixes, 1 Gillette Body Wash, 2 Travel size Coppertone sun block, 1 huggies baby wipes, 2 Travel size Wet Ones, 3 Travel size Right Guard Sport, 11 Hershey's Bliss bars. (for those of you hwho haven't tried these...let me just tell you. YUMMY)

I paid................................$12.88 (this includes tax)

At Walmart where I saved over $20.00 I gave this gentleman 2 coupons for the Kraft salad dressing. Price was $1.58 and I had 2 extra $1.50 coupons. All he had to pay was .08 + tax. He was very greatful and at Target I handed a lady .75 coupon for the huggies wipes. That feels awesome to do things like that. I am very blessed with my life and with my couponing. If I can help out a little bit with someone and help them save money that is priceless.

I hit 3 Albertson's yesterday

Well, the morning started out great. As soon as Austin woke up I was ready to go, I fed and clothed him and we were out the door. The first Albertson's he did great and so did Mommy.
Total OOP (Out of Pocket)
drum roll please.....
$.63 All I had to pay was tax. I never thought in my wildest dreams that when I went grocery shopping, I would need to grab change from my change jar. I was scrummaging through my purse for pennines.

WOW $.68
$.24 for the Bagelfuls, $.24 for the Pasta dinners, $.15 for the TP and FREE for the bread and cookies.
The double coupon days are over now so I won't list the details. I did this in 3 transactions and 2 stores. On 2 of them it printed out free catalina's for the cookies and the free bread. Yummy sour dough garlic.

This one wasn't as great, but still good. I find myself disappointed when I don't just pay tax now. huh?

I lost my receipts for the Easy Mac bowls, but the Triscuits and the Wheat Thins were free, just had to pay $.15 and the Kraft dressing and the A1 was $4.05 My total for all of this was
$4.20 + I think another $4.00 for 8 Easy Macs.

2 cookies and a little screaming for this or that later we were on our way home.

Quick trip to Target

I made a quick run to Target this morning. Having Austin I never know how much time I am going to get to shop before he starts turning into a monster. So before I hit the isles I got him an icee and a choc. chip cookie to keep him occupied. I made sure he had a motorcycle in one hand and his binki in the other.
Couponing is time consuming when you are trying to figure out the very best scenarios. I had heard of the following scenarios that I wanted to take advantage of. So many other items were gone that I wanted to get, so I will probably make a run in either tonight or tomorrow morning to see if they have the Chex mix, Pringles, and Fiber One yogurts. And maybe grab some more Chocolate bars. We all know Larry needs his chocolate!

My late night savings

I ran to Walmart tonight b/c now that I am so coupon focused I didn't realize that we were out of coffee and ketchup. Larry told me over dinner "If you don't have a coupon for ketchup, does that mean that your not going to buy it anymore" Oops. Well Austin needed diapers and I knew of a couple deals so I ran in.

My trips by myself always seem to last a little longer than normal. I enjoy going up and down the isles. Searching out the deals that I can get. They must have figured out that the $1.00 Isle had Nabisco Cheeze-Its and took them away or they were sold out. I was going to stock up from the $1.00 Nabisco Target coupon. Oh well I found some other good deals and they won't cost my waist line anything :-)

Their was a huge display of Mr. Clean in the center of an isle. included with each bottle was a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. They were marked down to $2.50/ea. I had BOGO coupon from 5/3 insert so I picked up 4 bottles.
I also got the Cascade Crystal Clear rinse agent for free from the Home Made Simple booklet which I received in the mail.
And I had 3 $1.00 coupons for any huggies baby product, so I picked up 3 travel size baby wipes for free.
With all that being said I spent $5.00 for everything that you see! That was my great find for the evening.

Cutter Mosquito Repellent

I got a tip from my sister in law about Walgreen's today. They have their mosquito repellent on clearance for $3.89. I purchased two w/ 2 coupons from smartsource printables here.

We go camping a lot in the summer time and she knew that we had better stock up.

It was $0.00 out of pocket b/c I had RR from earlier this week that I used. But even if you don't have RR, this a really good price. Only $1.89
