I got some really great deals! My total before all the coupons was over $100 :) After Kmart I went to Target to pick up some more fruit snacks, Planters nuts, and hopefully some more light bulbs. I went back to the food section and grabbed the fruit snacks (4 boxes), I then went to dig my coupons out and they weren't in my reusable shopping bag! I began to panic. I looked in my purse and it wasn't there either. I then remembered that it had been in my shopping cart in the front part (where a child would sit) at Kmart. I had forgotten to grab it out of there when I lifted Noah/carseat out. I immediately called Mike and asked him to call Kmart. He called them and there were able to find it (out in the parking lot in a cart corral!) and it would be waiting for me at the customer service desk. I finished shopping at Target and raced back up to Kmart (about 15 min. away). It was at the customer service desk :) Thank goodness!! That particular coupon book had ALL of my Target coupons AND all of my ECBs. Could you imagine if I had lost that??

The May Charity Challenge will take place the week of May 4-8! I hope you'll participate!

Holy Crap! I am so glad you remembered and acted quick on that! Did you know you can use the Huggies Bath/Body product coupons on wipes? I do it all the time at Walmart and Kmart and get lots of free wipes. Kmart = free wipes alot! :) Glad you had successful shopping trips!

Trish - thanks for the tip! I did not realize that I could use that coupon on wipes. I still have some of them left :)
