Saved 62% at Target- Lots of Cheap Produce and Freebies!

Yesterday I got "stuck" in Target. Talk about testing my self control to the max. The skies were dark and cloudy when I went in and before I had even finished paying for my customary Target treat of a large fountain diet coke it was storming like a mini hurricane outside.

Due to the massive lightening and torrential rain, I ended up trapped in the store for about twenty minutes after I actually finished my shopping. This led to the typical browsing of the clearance end caps picking things up, putting them in my cart, and then forcing myself to return them to the shelf minutes later when I realized that no, I do not need more sprinkles, or the super cute $1.59 cocktail napkins. And, no, Justin definitely would not allow me to bring home any more patio furniture no matter how marked down it was.

All in all, I think that my will power held out and I managed to save quite a bit while not breaking the bank too much. I was so happy to get a patient cashier who wasn't fazed one bit by my use of printed target coupons, manufacturer coupons, the newish Target Cartwheel App, and three (yes three!) different screens/sets of Target mobile coupons. I am sure that everyone else in the checkout area thought I was a psycho coupon lady but oh well. Their expressions changed when they heard her say my final total : )

I was also really excited to earn Ibotta deposits for three items and to also earn an extra $3 deposit on top of that for completely the Target Freezin' bonus for redeeming three Target Store Extras in one trip.

Just a friendly reminder, most of the deals and sale prices are from the current Target sale ad  which means they will be good through next Sunday. Some of the other deals are price cut deals which can be regional an vary in how long they are offered through. Click though the links to print the coupons I refer to, due to the time sensitive nature of printable coupons some may not be available to print anymore. Feel free to comment which questions, suggestions or deals you have found!
