First up? Electrasol (aka "Finish") dishwasher detergent. Right next to the school supply aisles I found this beauty. A 2-pack of the gel tabs I love....that's 50 some loads of dishes. It was normally priced at $6.99, marked down to $4.88. I bought two 2-packs and used two coupons for $2.25 off, plus I had a Target coupon for $1 off. This made it $1.63 a pack because one of the packs actually rang up a dollar cheaper than marked (crazy! That NEVER happens to me!). Pretty far cry from the $6.99 they WERE priced at, don't ya think? woo-hoo!
Next up? Pampers "Easy Ups" (we still use these for the overnight hours). They were originally marked $19.99 for 50-some of them. It was clearanced for $9.99 (no idea why - don't care)...I used $4 in Pampers coupons and voila! 50-some pull-ups for about $6. Yee-ha! If they would have had more boxes I would have scooped them up - even at the $9.99 that would have been a bargain, but I only saw one box.
Next? Dial foam hand soap. I needed a new hand soap for the kitchen. The soap was priced at $1.97. I used a $1.00 off Target coupon and a 60-cent off manufacturer's coupon and BAM! The soap is mine for 37 cents!
And finally? All Small & Mighty laundry detergent. This isn't my brand of choice...but it works. It was priced at $3.79. I used a Target coupon for $1.50 off and then a manufacturer's coupon for $1 off. Total cost of the detergent? $1.29!
Don't get me wrong....my total bill at Target was $76 and change (baby food, shaving stuff, face stuff, other diapers for Grant and an adorable pink tank w/guitars on it for Lauren)....but trust me...without bargains like this my total is ALWAYS $100 or more. The coupon-cutting, sorting, digging...all a pain in the butt....but on days like today - total payoff!!!
