Target Toy Clearance

*UPDATE* Okay, I couldn't help it. I went back and bought a few more toys. I scoped out another store and I was looking for the coveted Cozy Coupe that some were reporting to be on clearance. However, I did pick up a few more toys! I didn' t take anymore pictures, but they are included in my total below.

Did you make it to Target's toy clearance yesterday? We did, in the middle of a tornado! Not literally, but almost. We were probably about 5 miles from one that hit and tore up a Kohl's building and several houses. To be honest I never really thought twice about the sirens since they set them off so frequently here for no reason. There was nothing in the sky around us but buckets and buckets of RAIN! Whew! I thought we were going to have to build another ark! Anyway, I was hoping there would be things left by the time we got there yesterday and I think we did pretty well. Most of our Christmas and birthday shopping is done considering we only have one birthday left for the year. We spent right at $50 for all of this. I will get the final retail value this evening when I get it back down from the attic after the kids go to bed! Let me know what you ended up with!

Total Before Coupons/Sale (Full Price/Retail Value): $274.66
Money Spent: $68.30
Total Saved: $206.36 (75%)

HOT! Kraft Dressing Printable

Hurry and go print your $1.50/1 Kraft Salad Dressing coupons here (or here in FireFox). You can print two per computer and I am guessing a high-value coupon like this will go fast!

Wal-Mart often has these priced at $1.59 making them $0.09 after the coupon. Our Kroger stores often have these on sale for $1.69 making them $0.19 after the coupon. And I'm sure many other stores routinely put these on sale for less than $2.

Free Milk Coupons!

Jackpot! Run over to NOW and print these out! These do not appear to be good for only certain states as other cheese and milk coupons have been in the past. There should be 2 awesome coupons there using zip code: 63090. The coupons are for a free gallon of white milk when you buy $100 worth of groceries, and then free half gallon of chocolate milk with the purchase of white milk. I would love to have extras of the chocolate milk one if you aren't going to use it! My kids and husband LOVE the stuff! Happy printing!

Weekend Kroger Run

I made a quick trip to Kroger this weekend to get in another trip before the Buy 10, get $5 off promo ends. I still have not received my coupons I ordered from eBay for this sale. This is the first time I've ever had problems getting coupons on time for a sale. It's been over 7 days now, and I can usually get mail from just about anywhere in 4 days time. The funny thing is, the coupons were coming from more than one person on eBay! It's a conspiracy I tell you! Anyway, I got a few things this weekend. No picture, so I will list them out for you. We got:

~4 Dixie plates

~2 Dixie napkins

~1 Kroger cups

~3 Kleenex

~5 Kraft cheese

~2 Speed stick

~1 Softsoap

~1 Clearance M & M's

~3 Clearance Pez's for the kids

~1 Gallon of Milk

~Clearanced Dip

~3 Chex Mix

~2 Gerber meat sticks

Total Before Coupons: $81.49
Money Spent: $19.81
Total Saved: $61.68 (79%)

Toys R Us Clearance

Toys R Us is having a clearance sale right now that's pretty awesome. I went last night with Russ to pick up a few things for Christmas and birthdays. I didn't see a lot that was the price point that would make me purchase it, but some things were definately cheaper than normal. A lot of the toys were either for girls, or geared for older children than my boys. We still ended up with a few items, so I would definately suggest going to check it out for yourself.

First Kroger Mega Sale Run

I made my first Kroger Mega sale run last night. I had seen the ad but I still wasn't sure what all was on sale since the Dixie items weren't advertised.

I'm still waiting for some coupons to come from eBay, so here's what I ended up with for my first trip.

Good Karma: What Goes Around Comes Around!

I just had to write about my experience with awesome Karma today! First of all we have to back track a bit. Most of you remember back several months ago when our old house was broken into, right? Well, all of our electronic items were taken then including Russ's Ipod. He loved that thing to say the least. He has been really good over the past few months about not complaining about not having it. We simply did not have the money to replace it even with a knock off. Over the weekend he started looking on Craigslist and eBay at different ones and I knew that he was really missing his, but we still didn't really have the money to replace it since all of our extra money is being set aside for another car that we desperately have to have before school starts. So, I decided to use some of the money I had made from a couple of eBay auctions to see what I could get for him. Everything on eBay was too expensive, so I placed an ad on our local Craigslist board as well as a local garage sale site. A lady responded to me off of Craigslist asking was I looking for any particular kind of Ipod and what color. I told her we certainly weren't picky, but the only thing my husband wanted was a screen to be able to see the song that was playing. She responded with another email and said that she had an Ipod Nano 4th generation that we could have. I felt certain she meant that she wanted to sell it, so I inquired a price. She replied back that she wanted nothing for it, it was ours! She said she had been in our shoes before and it was ours, to come and pick it up! My husband went and picked it up from her office this afternoon and he is super excited! Blessings to you awesome Craigslist lady!!

Targeting For Eggos!

I took a quick trip to Target this weekend and picked up my 10 boxes of Eggos. I forgot to cut off the UPC codes for the Kellogg's rebate as I packed them in the freezer so I had to go back and do that at a later time! I also picked up some of the free/cheap Kashi items while I was there. The Juicy Juice I had a FREE item coupon for and the chips I needed for dinner for hubby and I (but I did have a coupon, of course!) My total including tax was less that the $10 Kellogg's rebate I'll be getting back, so MONEYMAKER! I'm happy!

Total Before Coupons: $40.60
Money Spent: $7.23
Total Saved: $33.37 (82%)
