Not to brag but....

Would you believe me if I told you I paid for everything in these 3 bags with a dime and even got change back?

Yep, I sure did. So what's in the bags??

So I went back to Target for round II of the week and did great, paid only .08 OOP. First thing when I got there I brought an unopened box of Avent bottles to CS, got a GC for 11.88. (Eli is off the bottle now, he only uses his sippy) So then I started shopping. I used these q's

$2/2 electrasol (plus picked the ones with 5 bonus tabs)
$1/2 suave (got shampoo & conditioner for .97)
$1/1 advil x 5(got the 10 ct bottles for .38/ea)
$2/1 excedrin (.79 for the 24 ct bottle)
$1/1 All Small and Mighty (trial size FREE) I gotta buy a bunch of those q's!
$1/1 Johnson Buddies x 2 (got two J&J bars of soap FREE)
$1/1 any J&J (used to get baby q-tips for .29)
.50/1 Airwick Stick ups 2-pk (for the diaper genie)

total before q's = 22.05
after q's = 10.81 (used GC)
OOP $0 (plus i still have 1.07 on the GC I can buy breadsticks, popcorn & a
drink with next time LOL)

I did a separate transaction for the groceries.

$1/2 Eggo waffles (target q)
$1/1 Lipton (big box not in pic, I gave it away to my mom)
B1G1 Dove Chocolate (which were on sale $2/5 so I got $2/$2.50)
.55/1 Puffs
$1/10 Earth's Best (cleaned them out on the .44 clearance pears, apricots & apples)

total before q's = 16.86
after q's = 11.89
pd 11.81 w/ EBT
paid cash OOP .08

I <3 Target

All this for $8.83 OOP

I clipped a q this weekend for a prescription transfer $10 GC from target. Even though I just had my levothyroxine filled @ CVS, I wanted the $10. They told me it would be a 15 minute wait. So thanks to Carlie mentioning the free pizza hut breadsticks deal, lynndsie and i had a little snack while waiting for the prescription (and GC lol).

get your free breadsticks with target cafe purchase of $1 or more here:

Well Carlie had said she got her kids the coke & popcorn combo for $1 and the breadsticks. I didn't really think either of us wanted popcorn so I ordered the small drinks for $1, and then realized by ordering the combo we'd have each gotten a bigger drink and we could have thrown the popcorn out the window. no biggie, it's free refills anyway. 2 drinks @ .99 = 1.98 + tax = 2.14 which I paid with the free $5GC I got last week for buying 3 procter & gamble products.

Then we picked up the meds at the pharmacy, which surprisingly rang up as $4. I asked if she automatically deducted the transfer GC, she said no it was included in their $4 program. (plus i used a discount RX card) WOW! I have been paying $12 something @ CVS, $7 when i had insurance!

Then we browsed. I found the 3 long sleeve thermal shirts for anniston for next year @ 2.48/ea. I was going to buy Lynndsie at cute grey hoodie with pastel hearts, only $3.48 but Sammy came to pick her up before we made it to the register and wouldn't let me pay. (Since he was getting his wallet out he let her get a cute bathing suit too) I found Eli this cute silly monkey onesie, only 3.99. Then I saw the kids' shoes marked down 75% and found a really cute 3.24 pair for anniston, i bought them one size bigger since we just took her shoe shopping last month. I went over to the baby food and found eli some apples and apricots marked down to .44/ea, picked up 3 of those, and then in some clearance stuff on the endcap I found reese's big cups and dark choc M&M's for .36, got two of each. For myself I found some cute socks for a whole .74, and 2 @ .99 pocket folders for my new q binder.

Total: 21.69
pd w/remaining free $5 GC: 2.86
pd w/transfer free $10 GC: 10.00
Total OOP: 8.83

And I didn't even use any q's except for the breadsticks. But yeah, almost everything in my cart had an orange pricetag haha! I forgot to bring the All Small & Mighty $1/1 and the O'Cello $1/1 but that's okay I will hit them next time.

Check these out

Just wanted to share some of my new fave websites/blogs:

miss priss

Having Lynndsie everyday sure does "liven" things up around this house. She is always "pwetendin" "somepin" and ALWAYS eating "somepin" lol. She is quite the little drama queen...can you just imagine her sitting in the chair, brushing her hair, saying "you wanna take ma pitcha?"

pizza pizza!
