Dust Bunnies

So, Mr. Coop has an obsession.
Its become a ritual around here...
He can't stop checking his toes!

It may seem a little gross...

But we can't help but get hysterical
at how through he is!

Seriously, he must have had lint once stuck in his
toe and now he is OBSESSED!
I mean at least 3 times a day he takes off his socks
and does a check.

I am laughing as I type this because he is so
serious about his toe checking.
Casey said, "Oh Mommy, he is just checking for Dust Bunnies"!
{hee hee hee}

Hope you have an awesome day!!

This Weeks Target Deals

Took a quick trip to Target this morning with the kids.
It is always stressful shopping with them so
I have a very detailed list {keep it short}
and lots of snacks on hand.

{the little guy is the toughest to shop with -
he knows the drill and asks for the snacks
as soon as he is in the cart seat}

So here is my haul:

My grand total was $23.72 for all of this.
Please keep in mind I do live in NY my stores
do not have the great deals that other
parts of the country offer.

I did 2 separate transactions to maximize my savings.
I made sure I went early to the store as to avoid long lines.

{There were still eyes rolling behind haters!!}

Anyhow, here is the break down:

-Starbucks Coffee - on sale $7.99 - used $1.50 printable coupon = $6.49
-Hefty ONEZIP Bags - $1.97 - used Target printable coupon for $1 off = $.97
-Salad - on sale for $2 a bag - used Target mailer coupon for $1 = $1

- 4 Ponds Facial Wipes - on sale for $4.49 each used 2 ($2) off 2 Ponds Target printable coupon; 2 ($1) off Ponds face product coupons & 2 ($1.50) Ponds face wipes {RP 6/26 insert}
total paid= $9.46 { $ 2.36 each! }

-2 Sally Hansen Nail Polish - on sale for $1.83 each - used 2 ($1) off Sally Hansen printable
Target coupon & 2 ($1) off Sally Hansen printable manufacturer coupon. = free +$.34 overage!

- 2 Hot Wheels Cars - $1.09 each - used 2 ($1) off Hot Wheels printable Target coupon= $.09 each. { I can handle that little treat for the boys! They were excited to get to pick out a toy}

-2 Johnson & Johnson Hand and Face Wipes (double value pack) - on clearance for $3.48 each. { note these were sitting right next to the individual packs marked $2.99 each} - used
2 ( $.50) off any Johnson & Johnson product { not sure which insert} = paid $5.96 (1.49 each!)

Always be on the look out for those read clearance stickers.
I ended up paying 50% off the store price using my coupons to take
the extra off the clearance price.
We go through wipes like crazy and these are small in size
and fit easily in my purse.

Don't forget, I did 2 transactions because many coupons are limited to
one transaction so be sure to read your coupons and check your store policy.

Did you find any deals?
