I Love Target!!

Seriously I really do!! I think my love for Target could be considered an addiction. And sometimes I wonder if my frequent trips there cost me more money. Since I’m quite stingy with money(ask Mike) I’m going to say probably not. I like to go in, look around and keep a never ending wish list of things I’d like to have but probably will never buy. And sometimes all that browsing I do actually SAVES me money… Like realizing this week that One A Day men’s vitamins ($6.99 each) were buy 3 get a $5 gift card. That couldn’t be better because Target had $2.00 printable coupons on there website and I also had a $2 manufacturers  coupon and was able to print two more $2 manufacturers coupons. I also had a $1.00 coupon for a Aquafresh travel size toothpaste ($0.97 cents) which means I bought all of this…


Which totaled   $26.94 but only cost me $11.59 – A savings of $15.35!!

I look at it this way…

3 bottles of vitamins - $20.97 subtract $10.00 of coupons - $10.97 and if I take off the $5 gift card = $5.97 means I bought 3 bottles of vitamins for less that 1 normally costs!!

The Aquafresh was completely free… 


I just wish my trips to Target were always this productive!! :-)


  1. You can't count your gift card amount off that price unless you used it one the purchase.

  2. "on the purchase"

    Apparently I need "The Spelling Police"

  3. That's so cool! I love reading on blogs about how people saved so much money from couponing! It rather confuses me, using so many at one time, but I'd like to try it someday. Maybe Deanna should start doing that, so she can save her and Jonathan money when they get married in July!

  4. Yes James dear I know that. Which is why I said my total was $11.59. No matter how you look at it though I still got a free $5 gift card so you could just be nice brother and tell me "good job"! :-)
