Shopping with No Kids = EASY!!!

Grandma had the kids yesterday while I went to my doctor's appointment, so I decided to take advantage of the situation and get some shopping done at Target. Did you know that in less than an hour you can fill your cart up twice and still have time to spare? It was pretty awesome to just go in and get what I needed - no potty breaks, no slushie spills, no melt-downs over who gets to push the cart, no "Can I have this?" Just me, a cart full of deals and a binder full of SIMPLE!!! Check out my three super-speedy transactions below!

  1. Do you have a cook book called "Easy meals made with Wheat thins and other crackers" that I do not know about?? Just kidding. If I could get them free I would stock up also! :)

  2. Hmmm...great idea...I think I will Google that and see if there is one out there! The good news is that I haven't bought any chips for the last few months since we've gotten all of these Wheat Thins for free!

  3. I went to Target today to get some of the pepsi products :) I also purchased a pure essentials Dawn dish soap. It was reduced to $2.09. I had a $1.50 manufacture coupon, and also a .50 target coupon (which I received in the mail) it was only .09!! Just thought I'd share the Dawn deal in case anyone else would be interested!


  4. I completely forgot to look for the dish soap - nice work! When does the Target coupon expire for that deal? Thanks for sharing Kiley!

  5. I think the coupon expires on June 22. Also it said that the sale price is through the 20th.
