Ooh, clever little title, huh? Those silly little bottles of Tide that sprang up all over at price points ranging from $1.49 (on sale) to $2.99 (at Target) have been reduced to 99¢ at Jewel. Three will cost you $2.97 less the $2/3 coupon in the March P&G insert. After high tax, you’ll be paying between 38 – 40¢ a five-load bottle. The older stockpile bottles I have are 30 loads, but I believe they’ve since reduced the size (to save us money!!).
So even if the current bottles are still 30 loads, your six bottles will cost you about $2.25! And this size is not only perfect for perching on the laundry shelf, but a blessing for those with arthritis and/or poor muscle tone. Stock up and remember, you can post-redeem your coupons at Jewel for up to 60 days. btw, i have a few more than pictured…
Target currently has a mobile coupon for $15 off a $40 purchase of UP and UP products (I believe it will be available in most Sunday papers, too) for a one-time use: Text UPANDUP to 827438 and you’ll get the coupon.
I grabbed three boxes of the diaper wipes ’cause let’s face it, we all love diaper wipes! Use them for wiping down furniture, dashboards, wood floors…they leave a nice clean scent and you don’t have to worry about harmful chemicals.
I had one of the 2-ct Archer Farms K-cup printables left (no longer available), so grabbed a package and four of the Oscar Meyer P3 snack packs, selling for $1.50 each. There is a $0.75 off OSCAR MAYER P3 PORTABLE PROTEIN PACK printable and a 50% off deal on Cartwheel, so FREE.
Total OOP after paper coupons, mobile coupons, Cartwheel and REDcard was $26.84 – less than the price of two boxes of wipes or a penny a wipe! but now i have no excuse for dirty floors…
Target has a special on select toy items: buy 1, get 1 40% off. This sale includes popular Lego City sets selling for almost twice as much on Amazon! Only catch is the best ones are available for store pickup not shipping, but I checked on this Lego City Cargo Truck 60020 and found it in stock at about 7 stores all around Naperville. If you bought two of them, you’d end up paying about $19 each or 5% less with REDcard; other items you do your own math. Enter a city and state in the search stores box, ’cause the zip code function seems to be wonky the past couple of days.
Target wants to you get this beauty box at the best price ($5 for ALL) and they’re willing to ship it for free, but please allow up to two weeks for delivery.
1) TONI&GUY Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray (2.5 fl oz): Want beachy hair without hitting the surf? Spray from root to tip for salty, sultry texture and subtle, windswept waves.
2) L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara (.22 fl oz): Stretch and lengthen lashes for a fluttery, winged-out look with this unique mascara formula and revolutionary asymmetrical Butterfly Brush.

4) COVERGIRL Smoochies Sizzle Gloss (.44 fl oz): Pucker up. Sheer color meets sizzling shimmer in a moisturizing formula that’s always stunning, never sticky.
5) Jergens BB Cream Light (2 fl oz): Finally, a multi-tasking beauty cream in a quick-drying formula that goes on sheer and delivers visible results in just 5 days.
Stopped at a Walgreens, so picked up another 10 or so bars of Caress – gawd does my dining room reek! even more so than usual…
Full Target purchase included 6 bottles of Ice Mountain, four 3-pk Archer Farm K-cups, four bottles of up & up hydrogen peroxide, eight Starkist pouches and four 1/2 gallons of lavender-scented bleach. Used two $1/3 Ice Mountain printables (no longer available), four $2 off any no-size restrictions k-cup, four 50¢ Target first aid coupons and $2/2 up & up cleaning products (I think that one’s gone, too). I have NO idea how my bill got to be so high, but my OOP was about $5!!! Well, yeah, it was ’cause of the bleach, but I’m a wild and crazy guy when it comes to scented bleach! Peroxide was 52¢ at the Naperville location although I’ve heard it’s higher elsewhere – two of the k-cups were $1.99 and two were $1.49.
K-cups go to MUD and peroxide is for blood stains after the apocalypse…although by then it won’t really matter, will it?
Target has the Ice Mountain still on sale for 50¢ per 1L bottle – coupon is out of print but I was diligent in my earlier printing! Target has Starkist Tuna Creations on temporary price cut for 99¢ each – all varieties, from what I could see, including some with no seasonings at all, for you purists. Use the $1/2 mfr coupon from 1/5 S with this $1/2 Target coupon and get ‘em for free! I’ll pick up more later in the week when I stop for more water. Using my REDcard brought down my OOP to slightly over $2…for 12 bottles of water and 8 tuna pouches.
The $5 Hydroycut coupons work very well for free shakes at Walgreens but even better at Walmart where they are currently selling for $3.98! I prefer taking product over cash so grabbed a couple of bags of tater tots…’cause who doesn’t need more of those!? Only down side is that Walmart only carries the Chocolate Fudge flavor, not the vanilla one.
Don’t forget that the Mucinex allergy 5ct boxes on sale this week for $7.50 at Wags, have a $5 mfr coupon in today’s Smart Source together with a MIR. If you’re going the MIR route, you’ll need multiple receipts. Each box awards 3,000 points, so a great way to not only use up RRs from prior weeks but rebuild your points stockpile! Remember that if you use points to buy a points item, you’re SOL. In this case, I grabbed quite a few incredible clearance items for all those $1 and $2 RRs to attach to. Always check out clearance end caps – they are our best friend!
This week Target (back page of ad) has a deal on breakfast-themed items: Buy 2 and get a free loaf of bread. Only bread restrictions are that they can’t be buns, frozen or bakery loaves. Which does not eliminate $5.49 Goodbye Gluten bread! I picked up four bags of Archer Farms dark chocolate truffle coffee (drool) and two of the pictured loaves. Total after a $1.50/2 mobile coupon, a $1.50/2 register catalina, the 5% Cartwheel plus my REDcard brought my OOP down to $19.10. The bread is for Rachel – would be too weird to bake my own bread and then buy gluten-free, right? This bread has no gluten or dairy; Target carried white and multigrain varieties.
Note, I was going to try this with the cheap clearance AF coffees, but they only had the Pecan Pie ones for pennies less. If you like Pumpkin Spice, that one was on sale for only $4.99, not the $5.99 for all the other (non-organic) varieties.
SuperTarget on 59 for more Ice Mountain, still selling for 50¢ a bottle – sale tags gone, but I price-checked. I’m still seeing Holiday coffee blends on clearance; today I saw Archer Farms Pecan Pie, but it was over $5!!! Do I look rich??? Print this $2.00 off two Starbucks Packaged Coffee products and carry it with you. While on coupons.com, swap your zip code to 60126 and search under beverages – you’ll find a $1/3 Ice Mountain sparkling beverage coupon which has reset. enjoy.
And you can never have too many chocolate chip cookies. Use the $1 coupon from 12/15 S stacked with the $2/3 Target coupon, plus each two pack purchase takes off $2 instantly at the register. Your three packs of $2.69 cookies works out to $1.07 for all three plus tax. While you’re allow four like per transaction, the numbers don’t match between the Target & mfr coupons, so run ‘em in sets of 3. Drag the whole family if you have a hairy Target.
Happy belated Valentine’s Day – - there were more…
Tried a different Target (Willowbrook) since I was out and about getting my Dunkin’ Donuts chicken sandwiches and grazing the Walgreens along the way – great day for it, right? New Target mobile coupon for Archer Farms coffee – $1.50/2 which played nicely with the 5% Cartwheel; Dunkin’ Donuts coffee still has the 10% Cartwheel coupon. The Magic card sets were $8.98 each.
EDIT: There is a Cartwheel on the Angel Soft which took off $2.25, so my OOP was actually $34.47 – but my per roll amount was right. math is hard…
Each double roll was was Angel Soft toilet paper is $14.99 for the 36 double roll packs – buy 3 and get a $10 Target gift card. Print this $2.00 off Angel Soft Bath Tissue 12 Double Roll coupon as many times as you have commputers. If you only have the one computer, there’s a $1.50 coupon on the Target coupon site that’s also a mfr coupon. With $2 coupons, I paid $38.97 and got back $10. Since I paid with a REDcard, I saved an additional 5%; without a REDcard, you’ll pay 27¢ for each double roll.
Hit up the SuperTarget on Rte 59 this afternoon and found pretty much the same assortment of clearance coffee. Printed out more of the $1.00 off one (1) bottle of Spree coupon, which, after the temporary price cut to $1, makes it free! Picked up a few more of the Dunkin Donuts clearance coffees because they’re tasty and I have the 10% Cartwheel; Archer Farms is also clearance, but only 5% on Cartwheel. Clearance end cap had jars of giada sun-dried tomatoes for $1.74, so I grabbed a couple – nothing is more depressing than fresh tomatoes in winter. Also printed out a few of the $1/3 Ice Mountain coupons because they’re on sale this month for 2/$1 or 50¢ for each set of three (click on either coupon link and switch zip code to 60126 by using the LOCAL box and then switching back to the coupons tab)! Used my REDcard and ended up spending $23.57 for a total of 5 bags of coffee, 4 Spree, 2 jars of tomatoes and 15 bottles of Ice Mountain – they had raspberry/lime, which I’ve never tried. If you’re a Starbucks coffee drinker, print out this $2.00 off two Starbucks Packaged Coffee products coupon because I’ve seen SB on the clearance end caps at two stores now.
And since you’re al such pros at switching zip codes now, switch on over to 77477 (yelllow rose of Texas, y’all) and print out this $3 coupon on Honey MELT organic buttery spread. I’m pretty sure I saw this at Whole Foods for about $4 every day price. Let’s see about sales and coupons! High value coupons like this normally don’t last long, so please print now.
There’s a new printable coupon for a zero-calorie, non-GMO sparkling beverage called Spree. Normally priced at $1.49, it’s on a temporary price cut to $1 – - which makes it free with this $1.00 off one (1) bottle of Spree coupon! The coffees were not only on clearance, but both Dunkin’ Donuts and Archer Farms are on Cartwheel for 10% and 5% off, respectively. Used my REDcard and ended up spending $12.86 for 6 Spree and 4 bags of coffee. Not quite Dominicks shopping, but it’ll do in a pinch. The large bag of coffee grounds was free from Starbucks – you use it for your gardens and evergreens. wonderful stuff! This was the Woodridge Target, where there was lots of Dunkin’ Donuts, Archer House and Starbucks blondes on the end caps along the freezers. Use this $2.00 off two Starbucks Packaged Coffee products coupon!
Here’s a shot of the Spree shelf – unfortunately, they don’t have a whole lot of flavors.
