My Target Trip

My husband got home from a trip today, so during nap time I quick ran to Target and used a bunch of my coupons on a bunch of clearance items.  Just about everything had a coupon match up with it.

All those Vitamins! They were, in their clearanced state, a total of $14.36 before coupons
Used two $3/1 and two $1/1 coupons from All You, $5/3 and $1/1 Target coupons
Final price- $1.36 for 8 bottles of vitamins!!!  (Plus I'll enter all their codes on Nature Made Rewards and get a coupon for $7 on my next purchase of them!)

My final bill at Target was a whopping $9.30. 

The Tampax were free at Fred's on the way home.  They are on sale at Fred's for $3.99.  Don't we all have $2.00/1 coupons in our binders from either samples in the mail or the coupon exchanges?  So go load up the $2.00 e-coupon on the Fred Meyer site and maybe you'll make .01 like I did tonight.  Yep, the cashier gave me the penny.  Love it.

Have fun shopping and feel free to comment about the best deal you've found around town this week!

Wow is right! I must say though, I don't know how you get the Target deals. I've been in there 3 times now and they never have any good clearance deals (except the shampoo) and I can't ever find the cereal in stock. I'm glad it worked for you. This was a very impressive trip.

I know how you feel, Elisa. When I went to Target yesterday I looked everywhere for good food clearance and they had NONE (I kid you not) and the clearance toiletries were pretty sparce as well. It was sort of sad.

Beffy, you totally inspire me. How you can work these trips is amazing to me :). You really do make me raise the bar on how I use coupons to their fullest advantage. Thanks for sharing the trips.

I AM, however, so so so glad I didn't try to stack coupons like this when I went to Target yesterday. I mean REMEDIAL coupon stacking was throwing the cashier and manager...if I had tried anything like double stacking the coupons or something I think their heads would have collectively exploded. I kid you not.

Beffy which Target do you shop? Because Wasilla Targets clearance is always sad, really sad :o(
And sometimes Anchorage stores have PC's we do not have!
Funny the other day I asked the CSM, "Why don't you have the same TPC's as Anchorage?" She says "What's a TPC?" (sigh)

Hey Carolyn,
I always shop at the Muldoon store. It's my fav!
I routinely print all the new Target Coupons on their site for things I'd buy, because the good coupons run out of prints fast.
Have fun shopping!
