Target Trip 4/25

Yes I am a diaper fiend, as my posts may show...but I have a 20 month old that goes through A LOT so the cheaper the better. This is my savings for today's trip to Target. I Plan on going to CVS later on to get a couple more packs of diapers :)

3- Scrubbing Bubbles @ $7.47 - $1.50 = $5.97- 5.00 Target GC when you buy 3 =.97
1-Windex Outdoor Starter @ $12.99- $3.00 TC-$5.00 MQ=$4.99-5.00 GC when you buy the starter = .01 MM
3- Packs of Pampers/Easy Ups @ $26.97-$2.00 TQ-$5.00=$19.97 - 5.00 GC when you buy 3 $14.97 for all 3. ( This would have been cheaper but I only bought one paper when the $2.00 Target Coupon was in :( )
2- Johnson Bath Buddies @$1.94 - 2.00 MQ=.06 MM
-3.43 because I had 10% Target Rewards :)
Saved 42% this trip... not as high as I would like to be but diapers are pricey :)
I'll be getting the MM ones from CVS in a bit.

CVS Diaper Deal

Pampers $21.99-3.00 CVS Coupon-2.00=$16.99-5.00 ECB = 11.99 for a big box of diapers
Print the $3.00 CVS coupon located at http://www.parents-digital.com/parents/201005?pg=97&search_term=pampers%2520AND%2520CVS#pg97

Use a 2.00 off one Pampers x 4/30
or $1.50 that have various expiration dates.

*This is actually what I did
I bought 1 Box of 52 Pampers Diapers for $21.99-$10.00 MQ ( I complained about previous Pampers)-$3.00 from the printable CVS coupon-5.00 ECB for next time. = 3.99 for the big box of diapers I actually spent $8.99 for diapers before ECB

I did this twice. 60% on diapers :) or after ECB 66% not bad. Oh and in one of the boxes was a FREE Venus Razor... ($7.99 Value)

Next weeks deal will be good also on sale for $8.49 again

I will do this :
$8.49-5.00ECB-3.00 CVS Coupon-2.00 MQ =-1.51 MM or if you have the $1.50 MQ it will be a $1.01 MM

Most of your money for SC Johnson Rebate

These are the three scenarios that I have seen work the best for having to pay little out of pocket or make a little money plus the rebate

Buy 3 Travel Size Shout wipes .97 @ Target or $2.91 total
use 3 .55 off any Shout found in the 4-11 Smart Source or $1.65
This makes the wipes .42($1.26 OOP) and you submit for your $5.00 rebate
$3.74 money maker. If you have $5.00 gift cards from previous deals you can do this twice or three times and pay nothing out of pocket! Then you are making the whole $5.00 rebate

Buy (4) Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner 22oz can BOGO $3.29 ea
-Use (2) $2/2 Scrubbing Bubbles There's Value in the Family Publix coupon booklet
-Use (4) $1/1 Scrubbing Bubbles SS 3/21
=$1.42 MONEYMAKER + $5 rebate check

Buy (3) Scrubbing Bubbles Power Sprayer $7.99 ea
-Use (3) $5/1 starter kit SS 4/11
-Use (3) $3/1 One Stop, One Store Publix coupon booklet
=FREE + $5 rebate check

If you can't find the coupons check out My Coupon Hunter or ebay for great deals on those hard to find coupons.

Pampers at CVS

I stopped by CVS on my way home tonight because I had rain checks burning a hole in my pocket, and since I had some extra cash decided to get diapers... Back on topic... Pampers are $8.49. They are not offering extra bucks with this deal, but if you have some extra $/$$ coupons, this will make a great deal on top of a manufacturers coupon. I bought three packs for $14.20 after extra bucks and coupons that I had :D

Here it goes!

So after doing two back to back couponing classes, I decided to start blogging on the things that I find to be the best deals of the week and also add to the things I may have missed during my talks.

I recommend signing up for the following sites:


All of these sites allow you to try out products before they hit the stores! They also send out valuable coupons.

Ebay is a great place to get coupons if you can't find it, you can also use a coupon clipping service, such as Coupon Hunter. But if you are in my mommies group I'm sure we will have enough to swap :D

Rebates: I will try and find you the best scenarios for rebates when they come available.

Thanks for coming by...and check back for links and other things that I have found useful!
