Target frustrations

I really love shopping at Target.
But I am starting to have more issues with their checkout process and with using coupons there.

Here are a few of my deals.
My plan was to do the Graham cracker, chocolate, marshmallow deal (buy 2 at 2.99 each and get the marshmallows free). I then used a target .50 off the Hershey's 6-pk, a MC Buy all three get $1.00 off, and my plan was to price match the chocolate (with the Walmart add for 2.48). The other deal worked fine, but when I tried to price match they said they can only do that at customer service. So I went to customer service to get my .50, but the price was saying I paid 1.99 instead of 2.99, but I paid 2.99. In the end, after nicely complaining about the process, the guy gave me $2.50 back (I guess I'll take an extra $2).

In another deal I was trying to get, the AcneFree was on sale for $5.99 each, it was buy 2 get a $5 gift card. I also had a 15% of AcneFree Target coupon. Instead of taking $1.79 off, it took .90 off. I didn't notice until I got home, but I guess I already got an extra two dollars from customer service, so I guess I won't complain.

Other deals:
Carefree =free with coupon from a few weeks ago
Cutter insect repellent $3.99, used $1.50 MC from this week's insert, and $2 Target coupon = .50!
Aquafresh toothbrush $1.99, $1 MC, $1 Target coupon = free (they only had pink)
Monster sticker projects (for Jay's room and his birthday party!) clearance for $1.99 each.

Today I got my deals from Denver Bargains in the King Soopers and Safeway categories. I didn't like that every time you copy and paste something from their site to make your grocery list it gives you this long warning about using their content (which I had to delete from my grocery list each time).

Next I went to Walgreens:

Pampers Wipes $2.99
Used 2 $1.50 MC for diapers

And I went to Target: (not my best Target deal)

The Gerber Graduate snacks are because I want Jay to try them, the sippy cups are because no other sippy cup is working for him right now, and the baby food in the middle is because they are the MOST CONVENIENT baby food out there. I can even feed him in his car seat if I would need to. They also are great for keeping in the diaper bag.
Aquafresh training toothpaste $2.49, used $1 mc, $1 Target coupon =.49 (it was supposed to be $1.99 so it would have been free, but since I plan on using it I thought I could pay .49:)
Carefree .99, used 2 Target coupons for .01 each, and 1 mc for .99 = all for free
Clear Eyes $2.69 (price cut), $1 mc, =$1.69 each (this is John's favorite and I never have coupons for it)

I still want to try and hit the King Soopers deals sometime this week, but Jay came with me for all this shopping today because John had to work so I couldn't do that to him.
On another note, here are all the toys Jay got for free at garage sales this morning because he was so smiley and cute:

Back at it

So after a very long break from "super couponing" as I will call it, I am back looking for deals again. Thanks to my friend Kristie for re-inspiring me (and for DVRing "extreme couponing" to get me motivated again).
This time I have set some rules for myself:
-Look for products you love and find them cheaper than normal
-Don't go for every free deal just because you can
-Buy stuff that you can use, or if you know someone else who can use it
-Don't pay money for products you won't use
Within these rules in mind, I will probably spend more than before, but I will actually use most of the stuff I buy too:)
Here is my "deal" trip to Walgreen's from Sunday.

I found most of my deals at Hip2Save.
Individual candy: .80 each, used Buy 2 get 1 free coupons, and used .39 each in-add coupon afterwords. =.13 each

He loves coupons too!

Baby Jay loves coupons too- he had a blast playing with all the ones I didn't want!
I had a trip all planned out with coupons and match ups, but it would require me to go to 3 different stores. When I found out I was taking Jay with me it turned in to a one-stop Walmart shopping trip. I did a bit of price matching and used some coupons (which did not get doubled because it is Walmart) and saved a bit of money...but at least I didn't have to transfer in and out of car seats 6 times:)
I cut out a bunch of coupons this week and hope to score some deals this weekend.
