Tackling Target

I decided to take #1 son with me on my shopping runs this past weekend. I quickly remembered why I usually leave him (and the others) at home when I go shopping. He was actually well behaved, as well as can be expected from a child like Seth, but every store turns into a new place for a "treat." He thinks that just because we have graced the doors of a new building that it qualifies for a new behavior reward. His "treats" quickly eat into my spend/save ratio. All that aside, we actually did okay at Target this week. Here's the math:

Total Before Coupons: $58.01
Total Money Spent: $8.95
Total Saved: $49.06 (85%)

Hi! I notice you've been buying lots of meat at Target. Is there a deal that's going on? Another from a rookie? How are you able to print so many q's? I only have access to 2 computers at home so I am limited. Does the library allow you to print them? Thanks for all your valuable information!

Hi Jessica! Thanks for coming by! As for the meat, I've been using the coupons save $2.00 on meat when you buy any 2 Kraft products including dressing, A-1, Grey Poupon, etc. My Target has had the 1 lb. packages of hamburger for around $2.50. Combine that with the $1.50/1 Kraft dressing manuf. coupon and then stack those with the $1/2 Kraft dressing Target coupon and you've got quite a deal!

I can only print 2 of each coupon like everyone else since I only have one conputer. :) I occasionally get lucky and my husband can print a couple of extra of the "hot" coupons from work for me since he works with computers all day but that doesn't happen very often. Now, the Target coupons can be printed as many times as you would like! All you need to do is go to Hot Coupon World and look under thier "Resources" tab and you can print 100 if that's what you need! :)

Wow! That's an awesome deal on the meat. I've been buying a lot of kraft also with the target coupons & the man coupons. Where did you get that meat coupon from? And again thanks for all your help. I've also been learning a lot from a full cup.

I bought some of mine from ebay, and I also traded for some on A Full Cup and Hot Coupon World.
