Target Savings

My Target doesn't seem to be having the same sales as others.  Boo!  I'm thinking it's perhaps because it's under construction as they build the grocery part?  I did have a bunch of manufacturer coupons for the Nature Valley granola bars, as well as a bunch of Target coupons to stack with them.  My dad loves them and they keep for ages so I just went ahead and used up my coupons.  Don't worry, no shelves were cleared. 

And while I probably could have found a better deal on the Finish boxes, I was OK with paying just $0.76/each.  They are my favorite (as evidenced by the crazy stack in the back of my pantry- ha!).

Purchased ...
(2) Finish Quantam 10 ct.  reg. $2.75??, sale $2.51
(2) Crackerful  reg. $2.79
(1) Revlon Nail Clipper  $1.59
(1) Visine  reg. $1.99, sale $1.79
(12) Nature Valley granola bars 4 ct.  reg. $1

(2) $1.75/1 Finish Quantum print Q
(1) $1/1 Crackerful manu Q  **
(1) $2/1 Revlon beauty tool print Q
(1) $2/1 Visine print Q
(6) $1/2 Nature Valley Target print Q
(6) $1/2 Nature Valley manu Q

Total value purchased ... $26.66
Paid out of pocket ... $4.53
Percentage saved ... 83%

Earned ... $5/2 Revlon Beauty Tools Coupon! Which is fabulous!  Those nail clippers were only purchased because of the overage.  I don't need them- the went straight into my donate box.  I'll buy two more of them with this coupon and before taxes, have $1.82 overage!  Woo hoo!!

** I just realized that even though I haded over TWO of the $1/1 Crackerful coupons, only ONE shows on my receipt.  I thought I was paying close attention too.  Drats.  I still did well but it would have been $1 better if I had a keener eye!

I need to get me some of those Nature Valley coupons. Last time I had them I used them all wrong and purchased the regular sized boxes. DOH! Hey, do you use the Target check card that goes to your check account? It is an extra 5% off each usage and works the same as your debit card. That's like another .25 saves off this transaction. Adds up though.
