Today I headed out to Target to try on a bathing suit that Nathan and I found the other day. I had a $5 off coupon that I printed off target.com...this didn't help too much but every little bit counts. As you will see, I spent a little less than the cost of the bathing suit but I was able to purchase more than just the bathing suit! Take a look:
I bought the bathing suit (it is green with white polka dots and black bottoms), 4 pks Q-tips, and 6 trial size deodorants (2 mens and 4 womens).
Total Spent: $41.51
Total Saved: $16.00
This was done in 2 transactions. The first one was the Q-tips and 5 trial size deodorants. I spent $8.29 on this one but received a $5 gift card for purchasing 4 Q-tips. I used that to help pay for the bathing suit which was $33.22. Not too bad.
I did break the computer with my check card but after 20 minutes we figured out my order.
We will be going out of town for vacation on Saturday for a week so I needed to have a new suit! The one I was wearing before I had little Miss Hailey does not fit quite as well anymore. Also, as of last week Sarah and I are taking Hailey swimming every Thursday! She loves the water.
After Target, Hailey and I headed over to CVS for diapers! I had 3 transactions written out but of course they did not have everything I wanted. I will be going back because I forgot to get rain checks.
I took a few minutes to get my thoughts together on how I was going to work my deals. Here is how I worked them out:
- 2 Colgate Totals - 5.58 - 2.00 = 3.58
- 1 Power Bar Bites - 2.49 - 1.00 = 1.49
Total OOP: $5.78
Received $6.49 ECB
- 2 CVS Baby Wipes (72 ct x 2 on each pack!!!!) = 5.00
- 1 Pamper Cruiser Box (76 ct) = 20 - 2.00 = 18.00
Used $6.49 ECB
Total OOP: $18.82
Received $10.00 ECB
- 5 packs diet coke = 13.00
Used $10.00 ECB
Total OOP: $3.23
Grand Total Spent: $27.83
I was happy with this because I got almost everything on my list and still kept my OOP low. I need to stock up on more diapers...praying for more great sales! I normally only like to pay $3 or so for a jumbo pack of diapers but we are leaving Saturday so diapers were needed!
How have you done this week? Any great deals?
