(Not pictured: (4) cans Scrubbing Bubbles)

Was going by Target on the way to Mom's, too, so stopped in. Found the Santa Tater Heads!

Why'd I get two? Because they were there, I guess. I didn't need either one of them. I thought I wanted one for myself, because I do, or used to, collect Santa stuff, but I think I might remember getting rid of like 75% of my Christmas stuff, maybe all those Santas.  As for the other one, no idea. Don't have any little kids in my family that I give gifts to.
The problem is, I get excited seeing all the great toy deals all the shopper blogs are posting, and think I need to get them too. It's only .99, right. 
Yeah, .99 I didn't need to spend, plus tax.
Oh well.

The Pepto was a puzzle for me. I had a coupon for .75 off. I was going to use it at Food Lion, where it would triple to $2.25. That's getting more value out of my coupon.  But I would still paying $1.64 oop.
On the other hand, I had gotten overage on the Glade deals at Target, so I would be getting the Pepto free after coupon and paying $2.69 with the gift card. I still have a hard time thinking of overage as "free" money, so it still feels like I paid more for it at Target.

They didn't have any of the Up & Up Flushable Toddler Wipes :-(  I could really use those.
LOL, my husband asked me for some flushable wipes to take to the fire dept. yesterday and all I had was the Disney Princess Pull-Ups ones.  He said he didn't care and took them, lol. I bet he got teased like crazy.

Also no MM Glade deal :-(

The sheets are black Jersey t-shirt material twin sheets that were on clearance for $4.98. My youngest son will love these.  I probably won't so much when Kitty gets his white fur all over them. They'll look more like zebra sheets then.

The cat food was free with the BOGO and Target BOGO coupons, and I did the Scrubby Bubbles deal again. Gave those to my Mom. I already have 8 cans (with coupons for more), and I just don't clean that much anyway!

Value before Coupons: $38.18
Total Spent: $15.81 + $2.06 tax = $17.87 paid w/ gift cards
Got $5.00 gift card for Scrubby Bubbles
Get $5.00 SC Johnson Rebate for Scrubbing Bubbles (I think?)

Usually I wouldn't pay even .29 for a cleaning product (and sometimes not even free, because I'm still paying tax), but I actually do use Scrubbing Bubbles (the few times a year that I do clean, LOL), so this is a really good price for me.

Earthy Mama said...

Melissa said...

LOL, Nahhhh. Smells clean, right?
