Target Run 3/10

Last night I made a quick trip to Target.  I needed to pick up diapers and pull-ups and thanks to avonmommyof3 for letting me know about the Target sale I went there to get them.  I basically got everything pictured for less than I would have paid for just the diapers (without using any coupons of course).

Here is what I got:
6 J&J Buddies soaps $.97 each
used (6) $1 J&J coupons
4 Tide single-use $.97 each (will donate)
used (4) $1 Tide coupons
Oral-B toothbrush $1.99
used $1 Oral-B Target coupon
used $.50 Oral-B coupon
Transformers Band-Aids $1.82
Neopsorin foam $3.54
used $3 off wyb Band-Aid product & neosporin
used $1 Band-Aid Target coupon
Huggies diapers $8.99
used $2 Huggies coupon
used $1.50 Huggies Target coupon
Target brand pull-ups $8.54
=$17.44 OOP

I plan on hitting Target again tomorrow sometime.  I'll be getting some more diapers and probably pick up almost everything I got there last night except the Tide.  I think I'll get the travel size of Band-Aids which will bring my OOP down a little bit. 

The college guy who rang me up last night actually complimented me on my shopping trip.  I think his exact words were, "You saved more than you spent.  That is awesome!"  I think I can count on one hand how many times I've heard anything remotely similar to that - which to me is so surprising.  I mean, if I were the cashier and someone came through my line and saved a ton of money I would want to find out how they did it.  Most cashiers act like they see it all the time (which I know they don't!).  I'm curious to know if any of you frequently get "complimented" on your shopping skills?

That is great you got complimnted - I don't hear it very often either and when I do, I never get asked how either. I just made busines cards for my blog and when that happens, I plan on giving them one and telling them that anyone can do it!!! Great job on the finds!

I just got complimented today at Walgreens. The cashier said "You're a smart shopper!" and then when the $5 RR printed out he just said in astonishment "Here's another coupon"
