No Plan At Target

Other than wanting to pick up the FREE ibuprofen at Target today, I really had no plan in place.  But I managed to do a pretty great job, if I do say so myself.  I love LOVE how Target let's you (most of the time- I've had a manager ring me up and not let me) use overage.  See those nail files?  Yes well, they give me the creeps.  Seriously creep me out.  Don't know why.  They just do.  But they are the cheapest Revlon beauty product sold at my Target.  Leaving me oodles of overage to use for things less creepy.  They are a donation to people who don't have a bizarre and unnamed phobia.  And I know it seems like I buy granola bars every day.  I sort of do.  But I was able to get a ton of those Target coupons and they expire in a few days.  Plus, my dad loves them.  They last for a long time on a shelf.  And are FREE after coupons.  Hard to not take advantage of- so they keep coming home with me.

Sorry, this is something I have been meaning to ask though, do they ever hassle you about using multiple coupons for the same type of items. I hope that made sense. I think you know what I mean.

Hi Jayna Rae-
They don't seem to at Target. They used to only let me use one Target coupon/per item/per purchase. So for example, I would have had to do three separate transactions for the granola bars. But the last few months at my Target they seem fine with using multiple of the same coupons. I honestly think it makes it easier on the cashiers. But I tell the cashier right at the start that I will be using LOTS of coupons. And as soon as a customer gets behind me, I tell them too that I will be using lots of coupons in case they want to switch lanes. I think that up front disclosure takes some of the strangeness out of the situation. But in general, no I have no had problems using several of the same coupon. Lots of other issues but not that one. Ha.

I also have a phobia of nail files. Ewwww!! They make my skin crawl! :) Unfortunately, we don't have any revlon beauty tools at either of the Targets by me. I have given up on using those coupons.

Great job!

That is awesome!!!

One quick question: how do you print multiple Target coupons? It always tells me there is a limit. (Do you use different computers?)
