Saturday Last Minute Target Run 1/31
Beginning in Residency when Jim had a Saturday night off, we started the tradition of our Saturday Night Dates consisting of grocery and coupon shopping and a quick dinner out without the kids. I had run to Target earlier this week and forgot my Target coupons on the kitchen counter. The deals that I found were worth the extra 30 minute drive to the city. We ended up leaving before hitting Walgreens and Walmart for a few last items. Our date cut short by a page to the emergency room and a FAAAST trip home to the hospital.
I still cannot believe that I got all this for $29.00!! There were so many Target and Manufacturer double stacks. I even scored moneymakers on the Rolaids with a $4.00 off 2. Several of the items were completely free. The only thing I missed this trip was more of the DiGiorno Pizza and Free Soda deals as the cooler was cleaned out. I had scored the Pizza on my earlier trip the $3.99 pizzas less a $5.00/2 coupon making them each $1.49 and free Coke.
My coupons are finally all nicely organized, but two 3 1/2 inch binders (1 for food, 1 for household items) creates a lot of attention. This week I finally started carrying them in as I ended up having to run to the car when I discovered an unadvertised deal. The binders are saving me a lot of time and frustration. I am beginning to think that I have too much time on my hands now that most of the kids are grown.
