One thing I LOVE is when readers share their weekly shopping trip stories and photos with me!  Stacy had a fun trip to Target recently and was excited to share her deals:

Jeans were on clearance for $4.98 and had the TQ for $3.00 off!
So each pair  of jeans were $1.98
Ziploc snack bags were 1.75 each
used the TQ for 1.00/2
and the MQ for 1.00/2
So it was .75 cents for 2
Tums 3 roll 24ct were 1.97
Used the TQ for 1.00
and the MQ from tums website for 1.00
So tums were free!
2 packs of papermate 10 count pens for 1.00 each

4 packs of the bic crystal 10 ct pens for .50 cents each
Used 2 bic Q for $1/2

I also bought a lunch bag bc I am obsessed with owls and Ill use it until my son is old enough to really ‘need’ it. It was 13.99 and had $80 worth of coupons in it!!   In total — she spent $20.49 and saved $18.86!!

    Where is the Scotch tape that is 50 cents? I didn’t see it in the office supplies aisle, and I’m really wanting to use my TQ!

      I was there today and didn’t see it anymore in my store…but I could have missed it as well.

    I found it in my store in a cardboard bin in the back to school section. My store was out or I would have gotten 2 free.
