Target Trip: Saving on Snacks

We actually went to Target today to take advantage of the $7 price on the pants that fit Emma so well. Hers are starting to get a little bit small. She's SO hard to fit in jeans, but the ones that are $7 this week at Target fit her perfectly! While we were there, I grabbed a few snack items that were good deals.

Merchandise Value: $21.36
Out-of-Pocket Cost: $6.36
Gift Card Earned: $5.00

What I Bought:

4 Kellogg's Fiber Plus Bars - $9.32 ($2.33 each)
4 Chex Mix - $7.96 ($1.99 each)
2 Skippy Naturals Peanut Butter - $4.08 ($2.04 each)

Coupons Used:
Used 2 $1.00 off 2 coupons from previous packages

Thanks for the encouragement, ladies! There used to be a time when I might have laughed if you had told me I'd be photographing each shopping trip I made. But I know how much easier it is to find things in the store when you've seen them in a picture. So you're quite welcome! :)
