Target Deals

After the kids went to bed last night, I headed up to Target to get a couple of things, including the Fiber One bars that are on deal this week. I had a blast! I found some really great deals, many of which I had been reading about on other sites. I also found out that a number of things I bought this weekend are now on a deeper clearance - does Target price adjust? I suppose the other option would be to rebuy and return, but I'm not sure how much effort it is worth.

I broke my purchase up into two transactions so that I could use the $5 gift card from the Fiber One deal.

Transaction #1
5 - Fiber One Bars

-$.40 mfg coupon

I feel like I got a lot for $32.07 OOP. One of the best deals was the cereal. With coupons, I paid $1.25 total for 5 boxes of cereal!

The IP coupons are from the coupon widget on my sidebar and the SmartSource website. The Target coupons were from their webpage - I print them every time I got to Target, so I have more/less of some.

A few of the items - the two games and the construction paper - will be set aside for holiday gifts.
