Target Trip 7/1

Merchandise Retail Value: $50.01
Out-of-Pocket: $20.51
Savings: $29.50 (59%)

We found some great deals, and our freezer is now FULL of waffles. Fortunately, we all like these waffles, and they're full of protein and fiber, not preservatives. I also snagged several freebies. My husband spotted the Gillette body wash near an endcap. He likes that kind, and I had walked right by it! Emma chose the Goldfish crackers for a travel treat, and we picked up the Uno game to add some variety (for Mommy & Daddy's sake!) to our game-playing. The Zoopals cups are WONDERFUL for traveling. If you have little ones and don't want to find sippy cups with leftover milk in the car a week after you get home, these are priceless!

Here's how I did it:
7 boxes Kashi frozen waffles - $17.78 ($2.54 each)
1 pack Zoopals cups - $1.99 (not on sale)
1 box cereal bars - $1.99
1 pack chocolate Goldfish crackers - $1.33
1 Garnier Fructis anti-frizz serum (for mama!) - $2.99
2 Degree body sprays - $6.58 ($3.29 each)
2 Dove deodorant (travel size) - $1.94 ($.97 each)
2 Joint Juice drinks - $1.98 ($.99 each)
1 Plastic Horse - $1.74
1 My First Uno game - $4.21
2 Gillette body wash for men - $3.40 ($1.70 each)
2 Fruit Chillers - $4.08 ($2.04 each)
Merchandise Total: $50.01

-$1.50 x 7 off Kashi waffles (HERE) & I had some from a home mailer.
-$1.00 x 2 Degree Body Spray coupon from the 5/17 RedPlum insert

Total Coupons Used: $29.50

Out-of-Pocket: $20.51
Savings: 59%

By the way, I had printed a copy of the Target Coupon Policy from Target's corporate office just in case I was questioned about any of my coupons. I am keeping a copy of each store's policy in my coupon binder from now on. I've only dealt with cashiers refusing my coupons twice, but I want to be prepared. It's not a short trip for us to go to Target, so I want to make sure that I don't run into any problems when we get there. You can view/print the email I got from Target's corporate office HERE.
