CHEAP BOARD GAMES
I grabbed some more super cheap board games for my gift closet. Connect 4 was $3.00, Monopoly & Battleship were $2 each. I got the last Battleship on the shelf, so I got a raincheck for my last coupon. I love going shopping in my "gift closet" for family members birthdays, holidays, and donations. It's so much more cost effective to plan gifts in advance, get them for free or cheap, and then not have to spend a ton of money and stress at the last minute.
.50 BEACH TOWELS
I've been reading on the coupon boards about some drama with the beach towel coupons. The Mesa Target at Gilbert & Southern had completely removed their towels from the Dollar Spot. There wasn't even a tag for it and I know they were there earlier in the week. Very sneaky Mesa Central Target... very sneaky. Mesa East Target had plenty of towels left. I only grabbed one because I wasn't sure what kind of cashier I was going to be dealt. Had I known I was going to get the cashier of the year, I would have grabbed 10 towels! She pushed everything through and didn't treat me like a criminal for using coupons. I almost forgot I was at Target! I have already written to Target corporate about how pleasant she was to deal with. I always make sure to recognize great customer service. I don't want to be a Negative Nancy and only report the grumpy cashiers. :)
TIME TO STOCK UP ON GREETING CARDS!
I was able to get really cute birthday cards for 17 cents each ... and you can too! Stock up for the year now - greeting card deals are few and far between. Target has Carlton Brand cards for as low as 50 cents each (maybe lower - I didn't look for anything cheaper). Buy in sets of three so you can use this $1.00/3 Carlton brand internet printable coupon (it's a PDF too!) and get 3 for $1 or 17 cents each wyb 6+. I plan on stocking up on all sorts of cards for the year. One of my resolutions this year is to remember to send out cards and gifts for brithdays. Since having my baby, I have really become unorganized and slacked off. I have a new system of writing out all the cards for the month on the 1st and mailing them each Monday. Hopefully this will force me to be a better family member!
My Target purchases totaled 15.50 plus tax and was paid with a Target gift card. See my earlier post here for more Target deals including $1 pillows, solar lights, and the "Toy Story" DVDs. Hurry and cash in on these Target deals - the board games sale price is only good through Saturday!
