I admit that I was skeptical....NO LONGER! I am totally HOOKED! The coupon book was so much easier to find what I needed when I shopped...because I don't have a million years to be in the store. I had written everything down on my handy notebook that I needed even serial numbers on certain items to make sure that I got what I needed.
The beautiful thing about today was the EXTRA prices that Target had going on! One of the things that I had a $2 coupon for also gave me back a $5 gift card back to Target. That was a BEAUTIFUL thing!
I had a lot of coupons for toys....something I don't normally buy but my Ellie will be 4 soon and Easter is coming...so these coupons were WELL worth it!
First I will show you what I bought....and EVERYTHING I bought EXCEPT for some dessert spoons was either something I had a coupon for or it was marked WAY down. I am a bottom line kind of girl so I will give you the price and what I saved AFTER I show you what I bought!!!!!!
Those were the purchases from Target

The biggest thing is...everything I bought...we use...the toys I would not have bought but we are entering into birthday season etc but I just couldn't believe the savings today and I haven't even really dabbled in this that much yet! So, I will keep you posted as we go!
