How to Get Great Deals When You Can't Deal With Coupons: Target
I SO admire couponers.I want to be one. I want to go to a store, prepared, and get everything I need for the next three months for $25.00! If you've watched a couponing show, you know that these success stories take upwards of 40 hours a week of preparation. I just do not have the time or energy.
I do love a good deal though, and I like to make my money work. Here are a few of my tips on how to save big - this time, at Target.
Shop the post-holiday sales:
I found this candy just a few days after Easter at 70% off. These four bags would have cost me over $12.00 - I paid just under $4 total for some of my kids' faves!
These Mini Dipping Bowls were in with the Easter Clearance as well. Normally $3.99, they were 90% off. Between that deal and my target card 5% and pharmacy rewards 5% off, I spent about 36 cents for each one!!!!
I drink seltzer...incessantly. I can go through at least 3 big bottles a day. The Deer Park brand is one of my favorites, and they are usually 99 cents per bottle. This past week, they were 66 cents each, plus I had another 5% off with my Target card, plus ANOTHER 5% off with my pharmacy rewards. I bought more than usual because of the sale, specifically because I know they will be consumed. Do not buy in bulk if it's a perishable item or you aren't positive it will get eaten/drunk/used.
Stock up on what you know you'll use:

Shop the EndCaps:
The end of each aisle is where you will generally find clearance items. Be sure to check the item with the mobile cartwheel app as well - you may get an extra discount!
Living here in North Carolina, you cannot go wrong with a Panthers blanket - it is the perfect gift for many. Originally $14.99 and clearance tagged at $10.48, I scanned the item with my Cartwheel app and got another 20% off, reducing it to $8.38. Add in my double 5% off, and the blanket was approximately $7.50 plus tax. A total score!
More EndCap Bargains! These were all 90% off, making them each 10 cents before my double 5% discount. Again, I know many people who love Dr. Seuss, so they will be given out. Try to resist buying things simply because they are cheap. Your closet will thank you.
My mother always tells me, "Somebody has to pay retail, but not us!" I try not to pay full price for anything - try these Target tips out for yourself!!!
