Econo/ShopKo/Target Runs

Last night I made three stops around town.  $26.01 was spent for all the items above.  Here is the breakdown.

First up, Econo Foods:
Keebler Fudge Shoppee Cookies: 2/$3.69 (or BOGO)
2/$2.69, or $1.35 each

Pringles: 2/$3
$1/2 from 8/30 paper
2/$2, or $1 each


Next was ShopKo:
Covergirl Make-up: BOGO
$2.50/2 coupon I clipped a long while back
I selected the cheapest mascara they had included with the deal, $4.99
2/$2.49, or $1.25 each

TOTAL SPENT: $2.49 (plus tax...I have seemed to misplace my receipt!)

And lastly, Target:
Pampers Jumbo Pack: $9.99
$1.00 coupon

Huggies "Little Movers" Jumbo Pack: $8.99
$3.00 coupon I got in a mailer a long time ago (only good for "Little..." line or Pure & Natural)

Johnson & Johnson Baby Wash: $2.24
$1.00 coupon from here

Dawn Foam Pump Soap: $2.25

Bounce Dryer Bar: $3.79
$1.50 Target coupon
$1.00 coupon from 8/30 newspaper

Skittles Crazy Cores: $0.52 each
$0.04 for two

General Mills Cereal Cup: $1.00

Tresemme Hair Spray: $3.00
No coupon, but this was 10% off and I use this every day, so a deal is a deal!

Ziploc Bags: $1.99
BOGO coupon from 8/30 newspaper
2/$1.99, or $1 each

I did not take advantage of the Speical K deal because the selection at our Target was very lacking-and we truly have enough snacks!

TOTAL: $18.83, I saved $19.92!


  • Different snacks - cookies & chips.  I need to resist the good deals - we are going to end up gaining so much weight!

  • 3 Baby wash (one that I uncovered last night while sorting through a bin-o-stuff, one from previous run!)

  • 2 packs of diapers (plus, we have a slight stockpile previously)

  • 2 mascara

  • 2 soap (one from previous Target run)

  • 4 bags of Skittles.  We are going on vacation tomorrow, I'm bringing a pack on the plane for Henry.  An excellent distraction tool.
$75 a Week Grocery Challenge:
I'm only counting the actual food, so...
  • $21.43 left.  I want to hit up Cash Wise tonight before we leave to take advantage of some of the shelf/freezer deals.

Econo Foods Deals

At Econo, there are a couple good buys:
  • Keebler Fudge Shoppee Cookies: BOGO - $1/2 coupon here = cheap cookies!  Henry will be thrilled! :)
  • Pringles (same deal at ShopKo): 2/$3 - $1/2 coupon (from 8/30 newspaper) = $2/2

ShopKo Deals

In the ShopKo ad I found at least one goody:
  • Covergirl cosmetics: BOGO - $2.50 coupon, I got this coupon a while back and it expires today!
  • Bounce Dryer Bar: $3.99 - $1.00 coupon from 8/30 paper = $2.99, this may be cheaper at Target because I also have a $1.50 Target coupon...not sure on the price at Target.
  • Tide: $6.99 - $1.00 coupon from 8/30 paper = $5.99, again, there may be a better deal at Target on a larger size on sale for $10.99.  We aren't yet in desperate need of laundry soap, so I just might wait for a better bargain.

In the Target ad I found a bunch of goodies!
