How was your week? I am so happy that it is the weekend. We went to see the movie Woodlawn tonight, and it was AWESOME! I highly, highly recommend it. So many have come to Christ from this movie, which is really, really awesome.
We spent a little more this week than usual, but there were a ton of deals that we wanted to take advantage of.
This is the world’s worst picture, so for that I apologize. I forgot to add these to the haul photo, so I took a quick photo on the recliner and it is pretty dark.
This is a really great deal on dog food! We are switching dog foods again. We used to give the dogs whatever was on sale, but a few months ago we switch to a higher protein food that was supposed to be healthier, except the boys have had quite a few problems with their stomachs and going potty since that we did not have before we switched food. Because of this, we decided to switch back to some of the brands we used to use.
Anyways, on to the deal.
Iams Dry Dog Food 15lb bag $17.99 each x2 =$35.98
-20% off Iams purchase of $20 or more Target coupon RP 10/11
-10% off CW
You will pay $15.90
Get back $10 Target Gift Card
=$5.90 or $2.95 each
I wish I had more RP 10/11 because this is an amazing deal. You save over $15 per bag of dog food! There is also a printable 10% off Target coupon on Target.com if you do not have the 20% off. This will make your total $7.81 for both or $3.91 each bag, which is still a huge savings.
The rest of this haul was pretty big. We broke it up into two transactions.
Kotex Liners (we bought one of the U by Kotex and one regular Kotex) $2.99 each
-$2/1 Kotex Liners SS 10/11
-$1.50/1 Kotex Target mobile coupon (text Offers to 827438)
=Free + $.51 money maker
Josh and I both text for the mobile coupon so we could do the transaction twice; however, we had buy one box per transaction. We used two different $2/1 coupons. One was for U by Kotex and one was for Kotex Lightdays. Both are on the same page in the insert.
Febreze Fall Spray $2.99 each x5= $14.95
-Buy 1 Get 1 Free Febreze RP 10/11 x2
-$.75/1 Febreze Air Effects printable from coupons.com
You will pay $8.22
Get back $5 Target gift card
= $3.22 or $.64 each
You can also do this deal with the car vent clips or the candles as well. We were down to one spray, so we stocked up on those.
Reynolds Pastel Baking Cups $.99 each x4 = $3.96
= $.96 or $.24 each pack of 50
I haven’t done much baking since I started working full time, but this deal was too good to pass up. The holidays are quickly approaching, and I am hoping to pick it back up then.
Starbucks Refreshers $1.99 x4 = $7.96
=$2.78 or $.69 each
Josh loves these. He used to be a Redbull and Rockstar kinda guy, but we have found that these are a heck of a lot healthier for you since they are made from green coffee beans. Now, of course, they are still not the best thing you should be putting in your body, so he limits them to once a week on the busiest day. A $1.50/4 Target Catalina coupon printed when we bought, and seems to be printing every time you buy 4. We turned around and did the deal again using that. It wasn’t as great of a deal, but is pretty close. It worked out to $.82 a piece, which is still better than $1.99 each.
This next deal is for the canned items. There are a few different scenarios using the same coupons.
Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce $1.04 x4= $4.16
-Buy 3 get 1 free Hunts, Manwich or Rosarita products printable from coupons.com
= $2.08 or $.52 each
This was the same deal with the beans, except they were $1.02, so the final price was $.51 each. This deal can also be done with Hunts tomato products. There is a 5% CW for those, but they start at only $.39 each, so $.27 each after coupons. The BOGO coupon can also be used on Rotel tomatoes, but there is not a CW for those.
I saved the most complicated deal for last.
Tazo Chai Tea Concentrate $2.99 each x3 =$8,97
-$2/1 Tazo Chai Tea Concentrate (limit 1 per person)
-$1.50/1 Tazo Chai Tea (limit 1 per person)
You will pay $5.47, then submit your receipt for a $5 Starbucks Gift Card.
=$.47 or $.16 each
This is the same tea concentrate that Starbucks uses for their Chai Tea Lattes, which are one of my favorite things. There were quite a few varieties at our store. We picked up the Pumpkin Spice, Regular Chai, and a Vanilla Chai. I am really excited about these, just don’t let me forget to submit my receipt!
There was also a TON of clearance at our store. We picked up the great big bag of M&Ms for a little over a dollar. I was planning on taking them to the movies with us, but I forgot. Oh well.
That’s all for this week. Our total out of pocket was a little over $30. The dog food alone would have been more than that originally!
