I love Targets clearances!!!

So these lovely items were on clearance for $4.24 each!! Well I just happen to have lots of coupons for $4 off 1!!!  Which is really awesome. I have purchases the 13 shown here for about $3.25 but the tax is figured before coupons so that was about $3, but still a really good deal. I have put up 4 of them in my house, and I figured they would last about 30 days on the 36 minute setting…so this is just a 3 mth supply. We went back to target a few days later and there were still lots on the shelf so i grabbed 8 more, 4 of which went to friends. I will be heading back to target again in a couple more days and get a few more, providing they still have any left. They only had these 2 scents to choose from, and when we check the refills…WOW at target they were $5.xx I was shocked! Much cheaper to buy these…


Quick Trip to Target Tonight

24 GoodLife cat food trays (clearanced) @ .38 ea =$9.12
2 glade fabric refreshers @ $2.50 ea = $5.00
1 mouse poison (clearanced) @ $.74
2 $3 prescriptions= $6.00
Total before cpns $20.87

cpns used

BOGO Glade $2.50
10- $1.50/1 GoodLife -$15.00

Total OOP : $1.73 (tax .87)

My OOP was lower because I noticed when I got home that the cashier only rang up 1 of the 2 Glades, and only took off 10 of the 11 GoodLife coupons…uggg! Oh well I am happy that I received the overages 🙂

Free Cat food from Target today!

I have several of the Goodlife brand wet cat food coupons for $1.50 of 1. Well Target has these on clearance for .53 cent each. They allow the overage (price difference). I purchased 3 for each coupon I used and then only for the majority. They also had the Meow Mix on sale for .39 each and I had a $1 coupon on 4. So I did my figuring and got the most out of the coupons I used so I can limit my OOP cost. I ended up only paying the tax! I didn’t use all of my coupons, I still have plenty of the $1.50 off 1, and I also have $1 off 1..so we will be getting plenty more of these.

Some free or nearly free items

Most of these items were free or nearly free, and some even money makers. I’m just gonna give a brief out line and not post the whole transaction breakdown, as I do not have that much time 🙂

Target has IP (internet printable cpns) that you can combined with a mfr coupons, as the register as “store” cpns. Here is the Target link. When using cpns with an overage at Target you need to bring your balance up over the overage price by buying other items, or the cashiers will simply adjust the coupon amount, they will not take it off the tax amount or give you change


2 Garnier facial wipes $4.74 each – (2) $2/1 mfr q + (2) $2/1 ip = .74 each

4 Maalox Chewable $3.69 each –  (4) $5/1 mfr q = $1.31 overage each

1 Maalox Liquid (not pictured) $4.79 – $5/1 mfr q = .21 overage


5 Suave Deodorant $1.39 each – (5) .50/1 that double, making it $5.00 = $1.95


2 Listerine’s $3.99 each – (2) $2/1 mfr q = $1.99 and Get $2 ecb back each = FREE

4 Colgate  toothpaste ( 2 not pic) $3.79 each  (2) $1/1 mfr q = $2.79 ea and get $3.79 ecb back each =  FREE & MM

4 Crest Pro Health toothpaste $3.29-.75mfrq=$2.54 get $3.29 ecb back each = FREE & Money maker

4 Oral B Pulsar tooth brushes (not pic) $6 eaBOGO mfr q= $6 for 2 of them, got $6 ecb back =FREE


The Key with CVS is to purchase these free or nearly free items, use a coupon, and even take advantage of the $5 off $25 purchase that they have available, and keep “rolling” your ECBs into other transactions that will give you ECBs. It takes a little time to learn how it goes. And it is wise to break you transaction down into smaller ones, making your out of pocket cost cheaper, by rolling your ECBs into the next transaction. Also some items will only produce 1 ECB even though you purchases 2 same items. example I bought 4 Revlon Nail Polishes, and had to do them in 4 transactions to get the 4 separate $3 ECB. Had I purchases them together I would have paid for them, instead of getting them free with the $1 coupon for each, and $3 ECB for each transaction.
