Another awesome day to shop in Bangor! The weather was a dream and got to go shopping and saving with my two best gals. With only a couple of exceptions, everything I needed was on sale. It’s like when you hit every light in town and they’re green…everything just seems to….flow.
We started the afternoon out at Walgreens, where I used 10 $1/1 Wet n’ Wild coupons on 10 99 cent make up items, making them all free.
In a house full of girls, these will be used.
After Mark came home from work, Mad & I went to (insert heavenly harp music here) Target..big Hal had had enough couponing for one day. Two transactions were played out here. Here’s what I bought..
1 Market Pantry (Target’s store brand) package of chocolate chip cookies $1.89
1 Market Pantry Lunch meat (turkey) $2.50. Used 1 $1/1 TQ and 5% Cartwheel making it $1.42.
1 Market Pantry Lunch meat (ham) $2.50. Used 1 $1/1 TQ and 5% Cartwheel making it $1.42.
1 Pillsbury cake mix $1.18
3 Stouffer’s frozen family size meals. On clearance for $5.94, I used 3 $1/1 MQ’s (sent from the manufacturer) making them $4.49 each..schwing!!
3 Vitaminwaters at .80 each.
2 International Delight coffee creamers at $1.89. Used 2 MQ’s (birthday rewards from the company) for $1/1 making them .89 each.
6 Market Pantry pasta at .78 each. Used 2 $1/3 TQ’s and .24 off with Cartwheel making the total $2.44 for all 6.
6 Market Pantry pasta sauces at $1.14. Used 2 $1.50/3 TQ’s and .32 off with Cartwheel making the total $3.52 for all 6.
4 Market Pantry apple juice at $2.24 each. Used 2 $1/2 TQ’s and .36 off with Cartwheel making the total $6.24 for all 6.
9 double packs (20 pouches) of Capri Sun juice pouches at $3.99 each. Received a $5 gift card for each set of 3. Total of $35.91 for all 9 double boxes, minus $15 in gift cards = $20.91, or about .11 each for 180 pouches!
One My Little Pony Fashum (This was the price for taking Mad with me) $3.99.
I also used Target’s $10/$50 grocery coupon (text “grocery” to 827438)
Total after tax, coupons, gift cards and Cartwheel was about $52. It seemed low to me, but Target’s receipts read like hieroglyphics when you use a lot of coupons and so I checked with Customer Service and she said it was correct. I’m not going to argue with them.
Mad and I ran that load out to the car and went back in for round 2! Oh yes, there was a round 2. Target had a deal that ended today that gave you a $5 gift card when you spent $20 on Easter candy and/or basket of $20 or more. With two kids, this was an easy one. I let Mad pick out her sister’s candy while I picked out hers. The total was $23.95. After $5 gift card, and two $1.50/2 coupons, my total was $15.95. Now I have to leave it all alone until Easter. Missing from the pic is a box of cookies Mad and I ate on the way home.
It’s for the kids, it’s for the kids, it’s
all for me for the kids….
