Target shopping trip 8/24
So, thankfully my hubby went to the store with me, and didn't complain the whole time(but I promised not to ask him to go shopping again for a little while!) Here's what we got, with links to coupons if possible. Target is great because you can use one manufacturer's coupon and one Target coupon for each item...I mostly use internet printable coupons, but there were a couple from Sunday papers...(MQ is manu., TQ is Target)...be sure when you print off coupons, to hit your browser's back button, then retry/refresh to print a 2nd coupon...most will only give you 2 coupons! I was able to get 4 for most, because I have 2 computers at home! All Target coupons were printed from this site http://www.organicgrocerydeals.com/forums/view.php?pg=coupon_generator I've never had a problem at Target(usually go to the younger cashiers because they aren't grumpy about coupons), but some friends have...if they give you grief, show them thishttp://www.dealseekingmom.com/target-corporate-coupon-policy/ Baby items: Aveeno baby products, 2/$7, use $2MQhttp://www.aveeno.com/save and $1 TQ for each item..final price $0.50 each Johnson's baby products, not on sale, but baby wash was 2.19, shampoo, 3.14, didn't check other prices, but not much higher, also included is Johnson's baby cotton swabs, but no MQ for this, use $1http://johnsonsbaby.com/special-offers-expanded.jsp and $1 TQ for each item, MQ also http://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=rkrpeos84985850&bt=wi&o=51049&c=JB&p=fJEldFXL, final price $0.19 for baby wash, $1.14 for shampoo, prices vary on other items ...just realized(going back!)
