My 1/10 Target Shopping Round-Up (Saved 74%)

This has got to be the saddest trip made to Target! I wasn't there but sent my younger sister. She had a horrible experience with the cashier. I was on the phone with my sister so I heard all this mumbo jumbo crap the cashier had coming out of her mouth. I haven't had problems using the $2/1 Olay on the single Olay bar that costs $0.97 and there are no beeps when it scans. This woman apparently thinks that the coupon giving me overage is literally taking money out of HER pocket. My sister let me know she was rude, glared at her and was just a horrible experience. After about 10-15min of the cashier arguing that she will not use the Olay coupons I told my sister to cancel the second transaction and take the Olay bars and coupons off the first so she took it upon herself to scan the whole thing for about the 10th time it felt like. After all that nonsense she DROPPED a damn coupon on the floor and I could tell by the total it was off so my sister went to customer care and she insisted that she was only given 6 coupons, but I KNOW I gave her 7 and she went back and saw it on the floor and no apology was given, go figure. Now with the receipt at home I find one Lysol was charged at $3.39 and the other at $4.99. It was the SAME Lysol bottle. I called her manager and let her know how rude this person was. I WILL be calling corporate tomorrow as well. That cashier needs to be re-trained or put in the back stocking crap. 

I do apologize for my rant but this was ridiculous. Here is my super-sad useless and overpriced transaction:

Bought (2) Lysol Bottles - $3.39 & $3.99
-Used (2) $1/1 Manufacturer Qs & (2) $1/1 Target Qs
Bought (1) Harts Dog Biscuits - $2.49
-Used (1) $2/1 Manufacturer Q
Bought (1) Garnier Fructis Herbashine Hair Color- $6.49
-Used (1) FREE Herbashine Manufacturer Q
Bought (2) Vitaminwaters - $1 each.
-Used (1) BOGO Manufacturer Q

Total - before coupons: $18.36 | after coupons: $4.87 (before tax)
Saved: $13.49  -or-  74%

Great Weekend! Movie Time! :)

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I've been a little behind with things but am trying to catch up. I thought that being on vacation from classes I would have more time but I just seem to be as busy as ever! I did get some time to watch a couple movies this weekend. On of them was Flipped, which was Amazingly adorable movie! I love coming-of-age movies. I was a couple of days late announcing the winners but they have now been announced on the giveaway post (on the left sidebar). Congrats to you guys! :)

I'm a little disappointed I waited until the last minute to print a $1/3 Lean Cuisine coupon and now they are gone :( I was planning on buying 5 and playing only $3 after (hopefully) getting overage from the $2/1 Olay coupon. Hopefully I'll have time to drop by on Monday and some more coupons will pop up soon! :)

Another WIN!
On the other hand, the Green Bay PACKERS had a phenomenal game against the Eagles this Sunday! I was on the edge of my seat during the last 4 minutes of the 4th quarter! That interception by Tramon Williams in the End Zone with :33 seconds left in the game secured ALL hope for me! They face the Falcons next week and it might be tough but win or lose, the Packers are #1 in my book :) I really hope they pull through and make it to the Superbowl this year.

Survey Sites For Pocket Money! :)

As I've mentioned before, MindfieldOnline.com is a great site to make some quick cash online. I have bee a member since April 2010 and the first week I signed up I got offers in my inbox to take surveys that would pay me $7, $3, $5, etc. They vary in time, but mostly take me anywhere from 2-10 minutes. On two instances I have been lucky to be accepted into surveys in which the company has sent me physical items to test out and give them my opinion on.

I have been too busy lately to take a lot of surveys but have made some good pocket money from MindfieldOnline.com I have tried plenty of survey taking sites but they all have a high threshold (which is the minimum money you have to make to cash out). Mindfield's threshold is only $5. When you chose to cash out you receive your money in your PayPal account. 

Its a great site to make some quick bucks, so check out Mindfield and Sign Up! :)
