Target Trip 2/19--72% Savings

I posted earlier about the Pedialyte coupon that I had found, and that was my main reason for going to Target today.  I didn't want to waste a trip to Target without grabbing some of the great deals I knew I could get there, since I hadn't been in a LONG time.  So I pulled together a few coupons I already had clipped and I took my older daughter along with me.

We went and picked up the Pedialyte and some more diapers first.  (I normally use cloth, but I've been opting for disposables until the GI issues subside.  I hate viruses.)  After that we made a pass through the clothing clearance racks.  I found this dress shirt for my husband 75% off:


We did not find anything else of note in the clothing departments, unless you want to count the pair of black lacy thong panties that my 4 year old snatched up and held in the air and loudly pronounced them 'so cute'.  Those were not purchased.  

I was making my way over to the grocery side of the store when this caught my eye:
My daughter's walls are pretty bare so I thought this would be perfect!  She loved it, and it's not often you find artwork this cheap.

I went and bought the few other items that I needed/had coupons for.  I had been sent a home mailer from Target filled with store coupons that stated "$xx off ANY BRAND of_____" I used those on the produce (I had $1 off each for fresh fruit and fresh vegetables) and bread and they made them free or nearly so.  I also used my $5/1 Maalox coupons from the 1/9 SS and my $1/1 Friskies cat treats from the 1/23 SS and the coupons for Oscar Meyer Carving Board meat that I told you about here.  I also used my FREE coupons for the Purina One Beyond pet food.  My friend sent me hers (Thanks, Tracy!) so I was able to try both the dog and cat formulas.  

Here is everything else that I actually went there for (not pictured is a large jug of cat litter that did not make it into the picture for some reason):

Before I left, I decided to swing by the Valentine's clearance, and boy am I glad I did!  The signs in the area read 75% off.  I was able to get all of this stuff to put away for later for just $9.06!

All of the above pictures should have cost me  $142.20, but with all coupons and discounts I spent only  $39.11 including tax!  That is a 72% Savings!  

I was still feeling a bit guilty about buying all of the extras until my husband texted me on the way to the checkout to say that our income tax refund had hit the bank. =)  A good morning all around.  Now if only this virus would go away...=/

Great trip and love the tax refund attitude - you're a girl after my own heart :)

well, you know sometimes its hard to buy extra of things ahead of time if it makes you go over your budget. But if you can use extra money to stock up thats better.

Great job! I love to see deals on things besides grocery and drug store items. I will have to check my Target tomorrow for some of those bargains.

And I love your blog's name!

Thanks for linking up to Wednesday Weekly Shopping at Frugal Follies! See you next Wednesday!

I also stocked up on some Valentine's items for later on. What a great deal on the shirt too, I love Target clearance. I always browse the clearance sections, and sometimes you can get very lucky. This week I got free jeans.
