My 8/7 Target Shopping Round-Up (Saved 91%)

This was just a quick amount, the receipt was lost so I'm going by the coupon amount, and sale amount. I didn't make this round, my mom did. She and I both LOVE the house to smell good at all times. Unfortunately these Air Wick Compacts seem to only come in only 1 scent. Its good, but i like variety. Here is the trip:

Bought (5) Air Wick O-motion Compact Starter Kits - $22.45
Used (5) $4/1 Air Wick I-motion Compact Starter Kits from 8/8 SS.
Total: $2.45 (before tax, after coupons)
Saved: $20 - or - 91%

Freebie - IdeaPaint Sample

I just came across one of the most interesting things in a long time. IdeaPaint. Apparently its applied to a wall like a coat of paint, but the cool part is that it actually transforms your wall into a canvas for your imagination! You can write on it with dry-erase markers and wipe it off just like a regular white board. IdeaPaint comes in different colors. From their website:
"IdeaPaint is the most flexible, durable and cost-effective dry-erase solution on the market. It can be applied to any smooth surface, outperforms and outlasts the leading dry-erase options and works better with all brands of dry-erase markers. See how you can transform a simple office into something extraordinary:

Transform a child’s bedroom or playroom into a place to explore and express their creativity and imagination. Paint a toy box and make it more entertaining than everything inside of it. Use IdeaPaint to keep track of appointments, chores, shopping lists and all your important dates. IdeaPaint creates the perfect spot for the family to interact and keep up with each others busy lives."

Target 101

New to couponing at Target? Don't worry, here is the straight-forward 101 on couponing at Target. I have to say, Target is my favorite store to shop at. There are so many great money saving ways at Target.

Coupon Policy: First off, Target does have a coupon policy. It is posted on their website here. I will point out some important points from their coupon policy:
  • Target accepts one manufacturer coupon and one Target coupon for the same item (unless prohibited)
  • Target accepts valid internet coupons
  • Coupon amount may be reduced if it exceeds the value of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied.
Target Coupons; Online:  By visiting the Target website and clicking "coupons" you will see an array of Target coupons available to print. There are print limitations and some you will only be able to print a few times. There is no set time when new coupons will be added, or removed. The hotter the coupon, the faster it goes, it seems. So check the coupon page often and print what you will use in case they get taken off the next day!

You CAN use (1) Manufacturer coupon & (1) Target coupon per item, per the coupon policy.

Target Coupons in Sunday Coupon Inserts & Mailers: Although it seems that they are regional, Target does release Target coupons in Sunday Coupon Inserts. Many times, they release Gift Card Coupons; In order to get the Gift Card, you must present the coupon, as it is not a "store Gift Card Promo". Target also releases "Target Coupon Mailers" which are sent to your home via regular mail. There is no for sure way to get these, they seem to randomly be sent out.

Trial Size Items: Target has a very big travel section with many products. You should be allowed to use a manufacturer or target coupon as long as the coupon do not exclude trial size items. Although coupon may not exclude trial size items, a store and/or its managers might not let you use them for these items. So its a YMMV (your mileage may vary) type deal.
  • For example. Coupons used for Trial Size Items should be adjusted down if the price of the item exceeds the coupon. [$1/1 Coupon for Tide; Buy (1) Tide (Trial Size) $0.99 - Coupon should be adjusted down to $0.99 per the Target coupon policy].
Gift Card Promotions: Target has some great gift card promotions. In almost every Ad, you will have at least one. There are frequently GC Promos for diapers, an array of food items, vacuums, DVDs/Blu-Rays and video games. Many times you will find that when pairing the right coupons and GC Promos, you will have Money Makers. These are deals in which you are literally paid to shop. 

Temporary Price Cuts (TPC) & Clearance: I can't stress this enough. Always have your coupons with you. You NEVER know what you will find on clearance or TPC at the store. This is where many good deals are found as well.
Target Ad & Coupon Match-Ups: There are many blogs online that will provide the Target Ad with Coupon Match-ups to make it easier for you guys to find deals and prepare your shopping lists! Mine is one of them so make sure you stop by for an early preview. :) 

I hope this little "101" will help some of you get started or just be prepared. I suggest you print out the coupon policy and ALWAYS have it with you.  If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comment section below or email me (click Contact Me button on the upper right hand side). If you have problems at your store, a complaint or have questions, make sure you call Target's Corporate Office at: (612) 304-6073

My 8/1 Office Depot Shopping Round-Up + Deals

I didn't make this trip, but I'm very happy with it. lol. Apparently, this past Sunday, Office Depot had a 1-day Sale on some great items. I had told my mom i needed the Memorex CD-R 100pk. It was super cheap, only $10.99, but since i was unable to go, i asked her to go for me. She completely surprised me by getting me a chair. I was in desperate need of one, but always put it off because I find them so expensive.

I like the plushy type office chairs, but they are so costly. On Sunday they had a Mid-Back Chair for only $39.99 (Reg. $79.99). Its nice, plushy & leather bound. Talk about a great deal! Hope some of you guys managed to get these 1-Day deals too. With these price cuts, i can say $50 was saved, and they received 2 free backpacks as well.
*Note: Ignore the smoking hot Spock in the background. lol.

Office Depot Deals: 
Free Backpack With $10 Minimum Purchase - Limit 2

Deals Under $1
Office Depot 6" Protractor $0.05 
Office Depot 2-pocket Portfolio Folders $0.25

My 8/1 Target Shopping Round-Up (Saved 72%)

Another shopping trip that I left not just for my younger sister, but my parents as well because I knew I wouldn't be able to go. So, as usual, i gathered up coupons, paper clipped them according to different transactions and told them to use what they found. Unfortunately, they had problems at the cash register but called a manager over who explained to the cashier the proper coupon procedures :). However, even with both of them there, they still managed to miss a $4/1 coupon, what a shame. Total would've been much lower. Here goes the trip:

Bought (7) Clean & Clear Morning Burst Travel Size - $.97 each
-Used (7) $1/1 Manufacturer Qs from 8/1 SS
Bought (2) Air Wick Freshmatic I-motion Compacts - $4.49 each
-Used (1) $4/1 Manufacturer Qs*
Bought (3) Hunts Snack Packs $.95 each
-Used (1) $.30/1 Manufacturer Q + $1/3 Target Q
Bought (8) Herbal Essences Shampoos & Conditioners $2.50 each
-Used (4) BOGO Manufacturer Qs from 8/1 P&G
Bought (2) Bagel Bites $2.54
-Used (2) $1/1 Manufacturer Q & (2) $1/1 Target Q
Bought (1) Juicy Juice 8pk. - $3.19
Used (1) $1/1 Target Q
Bought (1) Chef Boyardee Ravioli Can $.99
-Used (1) $1/1 Target Q

Total: $17.30 after tax and coupons
Saved: $44.93 - or - 72%

*If the cashier wouldn't of missed the $4 Q my total would've been $13, therefore saving 83%.
