Saved 76% At Target With Gift Card Deals

Spent $23 after gift cards for $93 worth.
I haven't saved this much at Target in awhile. I had quite a few freebies today : )  I was excited to find my store had the Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser Starter Kits in stock and I was able to take advantage of two different $5 gift card deals. Lets just say I am clearly not going to need tissues until next year's back to school sales.

The Glade Diffusers had "Try Me Free" rebate stickers on they are actually money makers! I will be able to submit one and get back $5.99! Keep an eye out for these in your stores too!

My store was out of the Glade Fragrance Mist Starter Kits (free with coupon) but I swung by Walmart which is across the street and was able to grab 7 of them for free (post on that tomorrow).

I forgot a stack of store coupons so I didn't get a few things I was planning on and I managed to stay away from the clothing and clearance sections too. I think the fact that it was past noon and I was hungry worked in my advantage because I wanted to get home and make lunch so I just stuck to my list and got in and got out. Which if you are anything like me, you know is almost impossible at Target.

Total retail value: $93.47
