I popped into Target yesterday too for brown rice. This is honestly my very favorite brand of rice. So yummy. And at just $0.79/bag, it's crazy cheap. Cooked, a bag makes 10 cups. Each cup is just $0.08. Talk about frugal!!
I cook two bags at a time. I've mentioned it a few times but it's worth noting again. I think those who cook a few cups of rice at a time are just silly. What a waste of your valuable time. Cook two bags. Once cooled, divvy up into zip top baggies and freeze. Simply defrost in fridge or microwave for pre-cooked rice any night of the week. This has saved me so many times when I have a tummy ache (ditto on the dog).
I also tested out the Nivea deal. Buy 3 participating products, totaling $5 or more, and earn a $5 Target gift card.
(2) Nivea Creme tins reg. $0.97, sale $0.87
(1) Nivea 1.7 oz reg. $3.59
- (2)* $2/1 Nivea lotion 5/6
= OOP $1.33
Total value purchased ... $5.53
Paid out of pocket ... $1.33
Percentage saved ... 76%
Earned ... $5 Target Gift Card
Also, this is the first time I've purchased those creme tins and I am in LOVE. They are fantastic. I get such dry hands and that stuff is much thicker than regular lotion. Sort of in between a lotion and a body butter. So this turned out to be a total winner of a deal for me!
* OK I should not have been able to use two coupons. I pulled them out and realized as much so started to put the second coupon back in my wallet. The cashier saw me and said she thought I could use a second coupon. I let her try and it didn't beep. However, after I got home I double checked and the coupons do in fact read that they are to be used on 1.7 oz or larger. Even with only using one coupon, this is still a Money Maker and you will save 40%.
