Life is busy. I don’t coupon. Maybe I should, however I do a lot of my shopping at Aldi (a discount grocer), so I guess I’m not as motivated as some. I feel like I’m already getting things at about half price. But, when a deal smacks me in the face, I am wise enough to engage! Such was the case the other day!
Okay, don’t laugh … but, sometimes I’m techno “challenged”! I was doing a little grocery shopping at Target the other day when I saw these signs that said “Save $10 when you spend $50 on groceries”. Well, I’m no rocket scientist, but I know a good deal when I see one. Despite my “challenges”, I was going to make this work! I grabbed my trusty iPhone and texted Target and entered the coupon code. Voila! Presto Change-o! It actually worked! I did it! For you teeny-boppers, you’re probably ROFL, but I’m the mother of teeny-boppers, so this is a big deal! I only used a coupon on my phone once before and that was at Michael’s. Sadly, the yuppy cashier had to assist me in getting to the proper screen. Hey, the important thing is, that I got the discount! I digress …
The best part about getting groceries that day at Target was that most of what I purchased was on sale as well. For instance, the Folgers coffee was $6.99 each, which is an awesome deal for a big container! It’s double that price at the regular grocery store around here. I bought two. Should’ve bought more in hindsight. Anyway, I got some lunch meat and some other necessary things. The icing on the cake was the fact that I also had a $5 gift card from the last visit when I bought 3 sets of Suave Naturals mint shampoo and conditioner. If you bought 3 sets, you got the $5 gift card. They were $3.87 per set, which was pretty good. Not great, but pretty good. I just saw them at another store for $2.50 each, which is normally what they run for. So, to get the gift card on top of that was pretty decent.
So, my grand total of savings on this Target shopping day was $15 plus the difference between the sale items vs. regular price. (which I didn’t tally up) Not bad for a non-coupon clipping lady! (not to mention, a limited-techy lady) I just love when I stumble upon an amazing deal! Thank you, Lord!!
