My Shopping Trip With the News Crew

This morning one of the local news stations tagged along with me while I shopped at Target.  I honestly had not been shopping at Target for quite awhile but luckily I was able to find some great deals to show them.  My total before coupons/gift cards/checks was over $43.  My grand total out of pocket (OOP) was just $7.56!!  Here is what I got:

Huggies diapers $8.99
used $3 Huggies coupon
2 Kikkoman teriyaki sauce $1.49 each
used (2) $1 Kikkoman coupons
Nivea lotion $5.04
used $1 Target coupon
used $3 Nivea coupon
2 Wrigley's 5 gum $1.29 each
used $1/2 Target coupon
used $1/2 Wrigley's coupon
2 Schick razors $6.49 each, get a $5 gift card when you buy 2
used (2) $3 Schick coupons
used $5 gift card from previous shopping trip
Similac formula $5.49
used $10 Similac formula check
Aquafresh toothpaste (travel size) $.97
used $1 Aquafresh coupon
Suave hairspray $2.74
used "Free" Suave coupon from a Facebook offer

I also received an additional $.05 off my purchase since I used my own shopping bag.  Some more coupons printed out from the catalina machine at the store.  One of them happened to be for $3.50 off a box of diapers, since I had another $3 Huggies coupon I decided to grab another box of diapers.  I ended up finding some diapers on clearance for $24.64 so after the 2 coupons I was able to get 88 diapers for only $18.14!!  A pretty great deal if you ask me!

So I basically paid less for EVERYTHING than I would have if I had just bought the bag of diapers at $8.99.  Not too bad huh?
