So like I said earlier, I ran a few errands on Saturday and made a few quick stops at a couple of stores while I was out. I’ve had people email me and ask me how I have time to run in to different stores and pick up just a few items here & there. My answer to that is, I plan in advance. I make lists of what I’d like to get at each store, I have my coupons ready for each store with the lists and I plan my trips around errands I’m running that week so I can try to get everything accomplished on the same day if possible. Sure, I may find more deals by going out more often, but by cutting the trip down to once a week, it saves not only my precious time, not to mention gas money, but it saves my sanity too! I wan’t able to find much that was on my list for Target this week, they were out of stock on most of the things I had been looking for. Since this is our only Target in Joplin, this is not an uncommon occurrence. If that had been my only stop yesterday, I would’ve been disappointed, but since it was a part of one combined trip, it was no biggie. Here’s what I was able to find:
- 1 Coffee-mate Sugar Free Hazelnut (32 oz.) – $3.29, Used free coupon from Facebook promotion (no longer available)
- 3 Revlon Nail Clippers – $1.97, Used 3 $2.00/1 Target store coupons HERE (no longer available) (auto-adjusted down)
- 1 Revlon Lash Curler – $2.89, Used $1.00/1 Target catalina manufacturer’s coupon & $2.00/1 Target store coupon (auto-adjusted)
- 1 ZonePerfect Bar – $1.49, Used Free coupon (don’t remember which promotion this one was from?)
- 1 Black & White Journal – $0.30 On Clearance, the Dollar Spot (located at the front of the store) was having a big 70% Off clearance sale on all Red Dot items. I picked up several things, did the “do I really need this?” speech in my head and put everything back except for an adorable little journal I picked up for my Grandmother who likes items decorated in black & white.
- Final Cost $0.32, also got 3 Target catalina manufacturer’s coupons, 2 for $1.00 off one Revlon Beauty Tools & 1 for $1.00 off any one Method item
