Good couponing day!

July 24th, 2006 at 06:03 pm

I spent the day working on getting all my coupons and rebates organized. Good news, I'm halfway done lol. Serious couponing is almost a fulltime job in and of itself, but its my favorite hobby, and saves us money instead of costing it. Over the years of doing this, I've basically adopted an attitude of "anything free is better than nothing free". This way I don't overstress myself if I have a rough day and don't make it out to get whatever is free or so cheap. Today is one of those days, my goal was to go to Target and Rite Aid to get free stuff. Never made it to Rite Aid, but when DBF got home from work he wanted to go to Target anyway so off we went. We got more cereal cups, 40 more sticks of string cheese (will last maybe a week in this house of cheeseheads lol), and more oreos. Total out of pocket, $1.74. Cost before coupons was $30.XX. Not bad! I am so thankful to have a fiancee who is so very supportive of this hobby, despite the mountains of coupons that randomly appear throughout the house. I also got my Refund Cents magazine today, which I love. It always inspires me to head on to the next deal. So tonight I'm cuddling up with my honey and working on coupons some more. Maybe tomorrow I'll hit Rite Aid!

    Does Target take coupons? Cause if they do, then I just learned something new. Do they double them? and up to what amount? Gosh, can't wait. I want to go to Target.

    Target DOES take coupons!!! The ones I used today are Target specific..found them at http://coupons.125mb.com/. That site will let you print off as many of each type as you want. Right now the great deals are.....The $1 off Oreos has no size requirement so I've been getting the little travel cups or .99 bags so those are free. The .50 off Market Pantry singles I've been using for the single string cheese, getting 2 cheeses for each coupon used. Also, the General Mills cereal cups (Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Cheerios, etc) are .97 and I have been using the .75 coupons on those. Also, the .75 Quaker Chewy granola bars works on the bags of of snack size bars which are .99. So .24 for 7 snack size bars, perfect for kids lunch sacks. Last week the Dr. Pepper was a great deal, but not this week. Anyways, I digress....target does take manufacturers coupons as well, but does not double. Still lots of great deals to be found!!!
