We had intended to just pick up groceries, toiletries, and cleaning supplies. Fortunately, Gen astutely noted 75% clearance racks in the clothing sections. She picked up 3 cute shirts, and I snagged one pair of pants and a new sporty gym outfit. All together, the tab came out to $79.37. Of course, we wouldn't in our right minds spend that much at Target. Ok, that's not entirely true. I probably could spend that much at Target getting stuff I "need." But I've reformed from my consumeristic habits (honestly!).
Anyhow, we worked our magic with coupons from Whole Foods to discount the price on the groceries and used the gift cards to knock off more. So, the number breakdown:
I haven't yet topped Gen's feat of buying $35+ of soy milk and toothpaste for $0.38 by combining sale prices with double coupons. But this outing wasn't too shabby.
