Target Trip

Did you miss me today?? I wasn't doing much blog posting because we were out shopping today. We headed to Target, Kohl's (see deal HERE), and JCPenney. Then we spent the afternoon and evening packing our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes with my parents and sharing dinner with them too.

Here's what we got at Target. (Click image to enlarge it.)

Great deals! Just wondering what section you found the Santa Mr. Potato Head in at your Target. I couldn't find him at our Target, but maybe I was looking in the wrong place! Thanks!

Stacy, I thought he would be in the toy department, but he wasn't. He was in the Christmas department. He was across the aisle from the novelty ornaments (Star Wars, etc.) and near some of the novelty candy items (M&M reindeers, etc.). I've now found him in two different Target stores in that same location. Hope that helps!

I found my Mr Potato Head kind of in the front of the store and right across from the greeting cards.
I also wanted to say I did not realize that both of the GE coupons were not to be used together. I put them with all of my coupons and the cashier never said a thing!I guess when I see the Target on a coupon I just think it is one of theirs. In fact now that I think about it I used them one time about 2 wks ago to and they went thru. I hate when I use them and I end up abusing them with out even knowing it.

I found the spuds potato head in the Christmas part on a end cap with food items. There were only 3 there. I was also able to get some more baby wipes for .57 each. That was great as my daughter just has a baby a week ago and also has a toodler still in diapers !!!
