This picture's title is "FREE"!!! Everything in this picture I got for free, and actually the pens I got a 30c "overage" on each package. Every item was acquired for free using target website coupons (and maybe stacked with a manufacturer coupon). Mostly a scenario like this...cereal cup $1, use a $1 off general mills coupon = FREE!
This picture is of my first couponing expedition of this new week (week 8/30-9/5). I needed diapers by early next week and had been debating when to buy them. I was sitting on several manufacturer's coupons for $1.50/1 package, plus several target website coupons for $1.50/1, plus a $5 off $25 baby purchase snail mail target coupon...all stackable with each other. $25 is around 3 single packages of diapers, so I'd been planning to get 3, and stack 3 of each type of coupon. BUT the issue I was debating was WHEN to buy them. The diapers are regularly priced $9.97 but often go on sale for $8.99. Last week they were regular price so I decided to hang on for Sunday's ad, praying they'd go on sale...AND THEY DID!!! I was so stinking excited this morning when I opened the paper to read my ads real quickly before getting out the door at 8am for church. So here's the deal I was able to get...
3 packages of diapers... 8.99x3
minus (3)1.50 MQs
minus (3)1.50 target web Qs
equaled $4.32 per package or 5.3c per diaper (I usually end up paying about 20c per diaper so this was a HUGE deal!)
The bananas, cereal and bread were free (more target web coupons) and the dishwasher tabs were 4.29 and I had a 1.00 target web coupon and a 50c manufacturer coupon...so 2.79 or 14c each (which beats Sams by 2c each)!
