Target Trip- Spent $12.53, Saved $22.57

Wow! This was such a successful trip to Target!! My little guy loves the "squeezies" as we call them. We go through quite a lot of squeezable, organic baby food. And these pouches run anywhere from $0.89- $1.89 depending on the size and whether or not you buy organic. The best price per unit that I've ever gotten was $0.80/each for the full-size, 4 oz pouches....until today!! I basically paid $0.47/each for these! Oh, and did I mention $0.19 for a 4-pack of yogurt? Ya! Here's my breakdown:

International Delight Creamer, $1.89
Used $0.75/1 coupon fm SS 1/08
Paid $1.14 (not a fantastic deal, but I'm a bit of an addict)
Dannon Activia Yogurt, 4 pack $2.19 each, bought 2
Used 2 $1/1 Activia coupon fm SS 1/15
Also used $2/2 Activia Target coupon from target.com (no longer be available)
Paid: $0.19 each
Traditional Medicinals Dandelion Root Tea, $3.49 (on sale from $4.99)
Used $1/1 coupon from SS 11/13
Paid $2.49 (you will see me use this in Jillian Michaels a cleanse next week)
Happy Baby Organic Happy Morning Smoothies, $1.79, Regular Price, got 8
Happy Baby Organic Happy Tot Pouches $1.19, Regular Price, got 8
Used 8 BOGO coupons from manufacturer (used multiple computers)
Used 2 $1/4 Happy Baby Organic Baby Food Pouches, Target Coupon fm target.com
Paid $0.47 each!!!

Now, my understanding was that the BOGO coupons were to buy one smoothie, get a Happy Tot pouch for free (which is cheaper). However, when ringing up, the coupon automatically discounted $1.79 for each scanned. I clarified with the cashier, but she said it was correct and that she would not override it unless the coupon did not scan properly. So, this may not work for everyone, but even if you got $1.19 taken off for each coupon scanned, it's still a great deal at $0.77 each. It would've been the best price ever.

*Note: this only works because Target allows you to "stack" manufacturer and store coupons. I always remind my cashier that I love that about Target. I hope my gratitude is passed on, but more importantly, I continue to remind the cashiers that I can use 2 coupons on the same product so long as one is a manufacturer, and the other is a Target coupon.

Happy deal hunting, friends!
