My coupon-pal(hi, Michelle!) and I set forth into Target today to do a little damage...it was alot of fun. For the purposes of the Grocery Challenge, my oop was 0.00!! I used a gift card to pay, so I guess my oop was 0 anyhow, but since we were going in on the deals together, eh..it gets confusing! Here's what we got, some is mine, some is hers:
watermelon 1.50(great price!!!)
30 ears of corn 10/$1(great price!!!)
1 Scrubbing Bubbles toilet brush starter kit
4 Scrubbing Bubbles toilet brush refills
4 Scrubbing Bubbles toilet get
6 SB power sprayers
4 Vanish toilet discs
1 Tide Stain Release
2 Elmo books(clearance 1.98 each)
Iron Man2 MrPotato Head(clearance 9.08)
10 bx Kelloggs Fiber Plus cereal
10 bx Kelloggs Spec K cereal
7 Ziploc steamer bags
after a massive amount of coupons, the total was $9.02+tax, I pd $16.35 with a gift card. Since Target receipts are crazy and don't list every coupon, I did the math at home to double check everything. I have checked several times, and I am coming up at $5.02 before tax, not 9.02, so somehow I lost out on $4...oh, well...guess I'll chalk it up to a loss. I don't think I'll take my receipt with a $200 savings back up to Target and demand $4 back! I am happy to have gotten in on these deals, used up all my coupons I needed to get rid of before they expire...all is well!
The Target toy clearance is sitting at 30% on most items, and 50% on a few...I think I'll go take a look in another month and see if further markdowns have taken place.
