At Target I had to get a few things for school (not pictured) and I managed to score 2 Venus razors for .99 each after 2- $2 coupons and a $10 Target gift card for buying 2.
You can find other Target deals for this week at Stretching a Buck HERE
At Lowes I really wanted a heavy duty shelf that was over $50 but I was bummed, because my $10 off $50 or more coupon had expired, and I couldn't find any more deals. When I got in the store- right by the door there were 15 pks. of Gatorade for $9.97 and you got a $10 off $50 or more card inside the Gatorade. I was pumped! I buy this pretty often for John because if I don't buy it cheap, he will buy it at the gas stations (where it is like $1.50-2.00!) So I bought my shelf and got free Gatorade. (Or I bought my Gatorade and got $10 off my shelf!!) I plan on doing this deal again tomorrow with 2 other shelves and some plants.
My last stop was King Soopers. Along with milk, bread, blueberries and lettuce...I bought:
Countrytime Lemonade .99 used 2- $1.50/2 printable coupon, and received a $1.00 off your next purchase coupon!! So on all 4 I got them FREE.
Pretzel Flips were in the clearance section at .79 each. I used 1- $1.00/2 and 3-.50 (which doubled to .79) =so I paid .58 for all 5 bags. Yummy.
Reach products were on sale for $1.00 each. I used 1- $1.00mc and 2- $.50 mc (which doubled) = free
Mentos Gum 1.05 each. Used 4- .55 coupons which doubled = .05 each.
All this for .78!

Plus, THIS King Soopers has lots of cardboard setups on end caps and in the isles which means....lots of coupons! My goal was to pick up at least 5 coupons from the isles (that I will probably use). I did pretty well:)
