How I did this Week

Here is a break down on my shopping trips this week. I did one great deal at Target with the above picture. I got peanut butter, raisins, loaf of bread, Organix conditioner (try me free hang tag, I will send in for the free rebate check), 2 All small & mighty, 2 trial Tylenol, 2 trial Clean & Clear, 2 trial Butt Paste, one bottle of water (for break) and 1 Starbucks candy bar. After the rebate I paid $2.24 for everything. So basically for the price of the raisins, I got everything else for free. We really needed the peanut butter that day too!

The next day I just happened to be at the right place at the right time. I got two 10 pound bags of flour for $1.24! That's for both of them. They were marked with an "as is" ticket, but the only thing I could see was a little wear on the bags. These got popped right into the freezer, and we should have lots of fresh cookies all summer long.

Thursday night I was in the right place at the right time again. I got these two jars of pickles for $.76 each. They had about 10 jars, but we have never tried the black pepper & garlic before. If I knew for sure that my family liked the flavor I probably would have bought them all. So we will try these two, and see how it goes.
I also did a huge County Market trip on Wednesday. You can check out the post here. I ended up spending a little over $101 and saved 47% on my order. We are now stocked up for the month, and I should only have to go out for milk, produce and bread.

How did you get that great deal at Target? You said "after the rebate." Is there some sort of rebate program at Target, or were you just referring to the Organix conditioner?

The rebate was just on the Organix. Wouldn't it be great if there was a rebate program at Target?!?
