Back in the Swing–Some GREAT Target Deals

Shop For Mom + Get Free Shipping on $50 Purchase on Select Items

I have kind of a confession to make – before I had Weston (almost a year ago) I frequently shopped at Target and got incredible deals. It was a regular part of my routine along with the grocery store and CVS.

However, after I added a third child to the mess mix, I just stopped going anywhere unless it was at night or on the weekend. As you can imagine that cut down on my shopping time quite severely and I just stopped going to Target completely, except for the random purchase of a single full price item out of necessity.

Recently I received a gift card to Target and since there is a cruise on the horizon and this Momma has nothing appropriate that fits to wear, I ventured out to Target today with all three of the munchkins along.

Are you ready?

They were AWESOME!

And I found some great deals . . . but no clothes. I wasn’t good enough to pull that off. Guess that will have to be a solo trip some other time.

Here’s what I found:

1. Meat – lots of good cuts of meat with the $2 and $3 discount coupons stuck to them. The items were only $4 – $7 to begin with so that made them very cheap.

2. Classico Pasta Sauce – White sauce marked down to $2 a jar with coupons attached for buy 2 white sauces, get a red sauce for FREE. Also had a coupon for $1/2 Classico – so that was three jars of sauce for $3.

3. Toddler clothes – 75% off I picked up some lined navy pants in size 2T and 3T for Weston, just $1.75 each and an adorable striped, long-sleeved shirt for $1.50.

4. Target brand Pasta Sauce – On sale for $.97

5. Dannon Danimals Drinkable Yogurt Smoothies – $2.04 minus $1/1 coupons – $1.04

That’s about as far as I got before the natives were restless, but I was quite happy with it.

Have you found any incredible deals at Target recently that I should keep an eye out on my next trip?


  1. Our trips are always hurried when I really like to take my time. It hurts to walk now that i'm pregnant with my 6th, the kids always go crazy and i'm scrambling to find the coupons I need to use. I like my husband with me because I need the help and he's fun to shop with LOL. After all the coupons and discounts today it was a little under $50 when the total was over $100.. so not bad. Two boxes of diapers were the most of that.. glad that at least target had $1.50 off store coupons.
    I got a couple pair of jeans for $2.49 after a couple of $5 off coupons, cheap A&D ointment since target has $2 off coupons on their site, free lightbulbs, .15 cent cereal, free excedrin, free cake mix, cheap frozen veggies and salad dressing with more target coupons and several more items.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
