Target is Not my thing....

I have tried to have good coupon trips to Target but it seems every time I try it NEVER goes as planned. When I go to other stores I have it priced to the Penny and 99% of the time when I check out the price was right on. At Target it almost never is the same and I have a ton of trouble understanding their receipts to know where the mix up is.

PLEASE....if you are new to couponing don't get discouraged if your Target trips don't go well!! I've been doing this for over a year and I still have trouble at that store.

So here is what I got today.

Clearance find!!! They had three different kinds of these at my Target in Wichita Falls, TX!
They are priced at $2.48 each and I had a coupon for $1.50 off any Olay body wash that expires this weekend. So I got them for under $1!!

My Target had these on Price Drop to $2.17 each. I had two save $1 /1 coupons from the internet and a target coupon for $1/2 making them $.67 each!! Your Target may be cheaper I've heard of some being marked under $2 each. Different Regions prices may vary.

Glad Holiday Candles.....I tried to do this deal but it didn't work for me.
They are buy 5 @ $2.99 you get a $5 Target Gift Card, I had BOGO free coupons and two other coupons that were supposed to make them between $.34 and $.50 each when I bought 10 of them.....Something didn't work right and they ended up being $1 each.....oh well I tried.

Great find of the day.....A Dog costume for Madison for $12.75!! She Loves it as you can tell!! I really hope she doesn't want to wear it to school tomorrow.

Sorry ladies I don't think I will be couponing at Target again for a long long time.... :-)

Yes I broke down and went to Walmart today. I did get to go with no kids so that was a bonus!

My camera is still waiting for a new battery charger to arrive so I'm sorry I don't have any pictures. This would have been an awesome one to see!!

Here is what I got:

1 - 24 ct ~ Advil ~ $3.48 - ($3.48 c) = FREE
used a coupon I received in the mail for a free bottle that I had applied for a few weeks ago.

5 - 11oz ~ Gain Dish Soap $.97 each - (1.00 c) = ($.03) Money Maker!!!
used $1/1 coupon from the 10/10 PG

2 - boxes ~ Instant Quaker Oatmeal (individual packets) $2.66 - ($2.00 c) = $.66 each
used $2.00 coupon printed from Here
May be cheaper at the Commissary but I was already at Walmart and I didn't think $.66
was a bad price. One of those is it worth your Gas to go to the other store kind of buys.

4 - 24oz ~ Propel $1.00 - (BOGO) = $.50 each
used a Buy One Get One Free coupon I printed online about a week ago

2 - Tick Tac's - $.94 - ($1.00 c) = ($.06) Money Maker!!
used a $1/1 coupon I printed off the internet last month
(These are a good stocking stuffer!!)

Here is the Candy Finds I was able to score.

Skittles Fun Sizes 2/$4 - had $1 off 2 Coupon printed off internet so final Price $1.50 each bag

Starburst Fun Sizes 2/$4 - had $1 off 2 Coupon printed off internet so final Price $1.50 each bag

Funsize Twix, Snickers, M&M's, 2 Musketeers - 2/$5 - had $1.50 off 3 coupon from the paper....I'm sorry I can't remember which one they came in. Final Price $2.00 each bag!!

Mail Box Check

I Love getting FREE stuff in the mail!

I like to hang onto the Laundry soap samples for when we travel. Since I make my own laundry soap for at home it's easier to transport the travel sizes.

They are also nice for gift baskets and donations for those in need.

Or for when a friend posts "I ran out of Laundry Soap and it's three days to pay day" on their Facebook Status!!

You'd be surprised how much you can bless other with some of the item's you get for FREE!!

Commissary 10-6

Huge Savings trip at the Commissary today!! Had to take two pictures!

Cost $109.46
Coupon Savings $42.00
Paid $67.46
38% Savings

I purchased 53 items if you average it out I paid about $1.27 per item. Not bad! Because of the way the receipt is I'm not going to match up what each item cost. Usually I write it down as I put it into my cart but I forgot to do that this time and at the Commissary it doesn't say what coupon is what on the receipt.

The Frozen Fish was the most expensive items I purchased. I actually had coupons for all but a few of these items and the Cream Cheese was FREE!!!

Oh how I Love Coupons!!
