Free Cocoa Puffs and More!

Just wanted to remind everyone that the $1/1 General Mills cereal Target coupon expires on Saturday. There are tons of coupons on and from recent paper inserts to pair this with to get some FREE or super cheap cereal. You can also price match with this week's Walgreens ad for $1.99 General Mills cereals. That means that you can price match the cereal for $1.99, then use the $1/1 Target coupon and then use your manufacturer coupon on top of that! You should be able to get free Cocoa Puffs and lots of other cereals for around $.50 a box!

Awesome Target Deals!

Macy, Tade and I headed out for some deals last night and we really scored big at Target. I had stopped there Monday night to get in on the Special K deal (buy 4, get a $5 Target gift card) and the Special K coupons have reset since then on, so I wanted to grab some more. While we were there we also got some FREE ice cream, almost free Buddies soap and really cheap cereal. I broke up my purchases into 4 transactions so that I would have the least out of pocket expense. Check out my deals below!

OH! I almost forgot to mention this: Target has a $1.50/1 Huggies diaper coupon out right now. I had lots of $3/1 Huggies pure and natural diaper coupons to match them up with, but my Target only had the really big packs of diapers and I didn't want to spend that much. So, I took my Target ad over to Walmart and they price matched the Target diapers at $8.99/package and then they also accepted the Target coupons, bringing them down to $7.49. Paired with my $3/1 MFC, I paid only $4.49 for each package of diapers. I will also send in my receipt to the Caregivers Marketplace rebate and get $3 back, making these diapers just $3.74 a pack! Now that is what I call super couponing!
