So, thanks to tips from my new favorite website, Thrifty and Thriving, a few weeks ago I did some amazing cheapskate shopping at Target.
I bought a t-shirt, a bottle of Sally Hansen nail polish and 2 Reese's Peanut Butter cups (for the hubs). Can you guess how much I spent?
And.... I used coupons.
For those of you who don't know-- Target has a place on their website where you can download and print Target store coupons. For the shirt, I used a $3 off women's apparel item coupon so the shirt only ended up costing me $.74.
Another fact-- Target will allow you to use a store coupon in conjunction with a manufacturer's coupon on an item.
So.... the Reese's Peanut Butter cups-- were $.74 each. I had a Buy One Get One Free printable Target coupon and a $.50 off Reese's Peanut Butter Cup manufacturer's coupon--after both coupons, total for both-- $.24.
As for the the Sally Hansen nail polish was $1.49 BUT I also had a $1.00 manufacturer's coupon-- so make that $.49.
$.74 shirt + $.24 for two Reese's Peanut Butter cups + $.49 nail polish = $1.57 (after tax).
I'm not THAT good at couponing yet, but Christy at Thrifty and Thriving lays it all out for you-- it's so easy! Check it out-- get one good deal like this and you'll be hooked. Getting a good deal is such a thrill.
Let me know if you get any good deals!
