Today is Day 2 of my Clippin’ for a Cause Challenge
(This is where I am trying to score as many products as possible with a budget of $100 to donate to those in need)
Before I get started, just let me say…I DID NOT clear any shelves to acquire these items
Today was a very interesting and quite frustrating trip to Target:
Here’s what I got:
4 Bonus Packs of Listerine
9 Sure Deodorants
(Just a heads up they are on Price cut for $1.50 – I used the $1/1 Coupons from 10/2 SS)
10 Packages of Carefree Liners
5 Benadryl Itch Sticks
14 Oral B Flosses
10 Reach Flosses
4 Bottles of Pantene
Total Out of Pocket including tax = $23.44 for 56 items or just $.42 per item
Total Saved = $63.51
Head over HERE to see how I spent $57.92 of my $100 budget on Day One!
I only have $18.64 left to spend at Walmart tomorrow…this one is going to be tough!
**On a whole other note…I really try to be a positive person and I try not to let too many things bother me, but I just gotta say, my trip to Target today was quite frustrating in that I felt like I was being punished for using coupons!
Let me explain: Apparently my Target store will let you buy as many of whatever item you want, but if you have coupons, then you are limited to “5 like items per household”!
I am fine with limits, don’t get me wrong…it’s cool to help with shelf clearing, but Target…if you are going to limit quantities, then limit them for everyone, not just people who are using coupons!
They had no problems ringing up 10 or 14 of the same items, but as soon as I whipped out my coupons, then all the sudden it became an issue, and they wanted to enforce this “ONLY 5 LIKE ITEMS” POLICY!
According to a little tiny sign posted at Guest services on the side wall where no one can see it (which when I asked to see it, they didn’t even know where the sign was),it states: ”Target has the right to limit items being purchased”
If that’s the case…then why did you even ring up all 10 or 14 of the same item…you should have stopped and mentioned this limit before you scanned everything!! Just because I had coupons…then all the sudden you are going to enforce a limit??
I don’t know, kind of seems logical that if you have a rule, you enforce it for everyone, not just us coupon shoppers…maybe one of the reasons I have only been shopping at Target like once a month!
