    My favorite Target Bargain doesn’t envolve coupons… I love getting the baby clothes at rock bottom prices! When it was only $5 to begin with once on sale you can get it for around 2-3! Great for play clothes.

    I like anything that ends up on a clearance end at Target. I have gotten some cute house stuff that way and of course very random things too!


  6. I already subscribe to your blog!

  7. My favorite Target deal was a little while back when they were doing the two Intuition razors with a $5 gift card. I did the coupons so they ended up being $.50 each, I believe. Plus that day they had clearanced a ton of pantyhose, tights, and socks – which I LOVE. I got a whole bunch and will probably burn through them next winter.

    It’s always so fun when the cashier is as excited about your savings as you are, too! I have had great experiences at my Target.

    I love shopping the end-caps at Target. Getting an item on major sale and sometimes being able to use a coupon…I love it!!

  82. I love to shop the clearance end caps at Target.

  83. Like I said in my blog post- being 36 1/2 weeks pregnant I love my Boppy Total pregnancy pillow I found in January for $12.48. I mean I love all my great finds- but this one is near and dear to me right now!

  84. I ALWAYS walk that front dollar section for things that I can use creatively in the house. Or for perfect gifts for friends or especially my Sunday School girls. And I honestly don’t really look at any clothes unless it has a 50-75% off sign above it. That mindset keeps me from from spending more.

  85. jbafaith says:

    I head for the clearance areas! My income is small and my children/grandchildren number is big, so I must keep the costs down.
