Coupon Deals

Whenever I go shopping, I make it into a little game for myself. I always loooove to see how much money I can save. Seriously, my hubby knows the sheer joy I express when we save tons of money by shopping the sales and combining many of them with coupons.

On our last shopping trip to Target I scored some great deals that I just had to share. By the way, this should be motivation for those of you who don't follow my advice with the sales and coupons.

First off, I didn't need to buy any dog food, but I noticed it was on sale and I had 2 coupons for it. Iams dry dog food 8 lb. bag was normally $9.99. It was on sale for $9.49 (not a big sale, but every penny counts!). I had a Target store coupon for $1.00 off and a manufacturer's coupon for an additional $3.00 off! So my $9.99 bag of dog food cost me only $5.49!

Next up... Deodorant for hubby. Now, we didn't need deodorant because we were all stocked up, but there's no way I'm passing up a sale and coupons! The Old Spice deodorant was priced at $2.24. I had a Target store coupon for $0.75 off and a manufacturer's coupon for $1.00 off. So the deodorant ended up costing a whopping $0.49!!!

And once again, another item that we didn't need just yet, but I had several coupons for, was Edge Advanced shaving cream. This was priced at $2.24. I had a Target store coupon for $1.00 off and a manufacturer's coupon for $0.75 off. So the shaving cream ended up costing $0.49 as well!

There were other sales and coupons but those were certainly my best deals that day. It's pretty easy to find deals like this yourself, just keep an eye out for the sales. Then if you can match up some of your coupons with the current sales, you will surely find the best deals.

Always remember that even if you don't need something right then, you will probably need it sooner or later. This is especially true with paper products, deodorant, shampoo, cleaners, shaving supplies and lotions. So it is better to take advantage of the sales and coupons now and stock up for later when you will need these items.

I have a Target charge card, so they send me coupons periodically through the mail. One more reason to love Target!

You can always donate the items to a shelter or other charity if you don't need them. I just got into coupons and have enjoyed it so far.
