My Shopping Trip: Target

I had to return something at a store near Target this morning and decided to see what was a good deal this week. We don't have any Super Targets in my area so my Target is just a regular one. Before I went I checked out Collin's comprehensive Target match-ups post on Hip2Save. It took me about 15 minutes to go through it and get my coupons ready. Because I had shopped at Target 3 weeks ago, I already had purchased many of the freebie items on her list.

I only had 13 items on my list and completely stuck to it. I had one coupon per item and ended up spending just $4.77 on all 13 items. Since the time before last when I had trouble with the cashier at Target, I was very calm when I approached and just told her not to scan some of the coupons, that she would have to enter them manually since the coupon amount exceeded the purchase price. She knew how to do it and the transaction went smoothly. That made me happy! Here's what I got:

Hamburger Helper, On sale for $1.52 each
Bought 3
Used $1.00 when you buy 2 Target coupon
Used $.75 manufacturer's coupon
