Today I went to Target to spend the $15 in gift cards that I earned on my last Target frozen food shopping trip. Our fridge was filled up to max capacity with frozen veggies, but we were completely out of meat, so I knew there was no way out.

I wanted to make sure that I took advantage of the frozen food gift card deal at least one last time, so I added some extra items to my meat purchase, and they basically paid for themselves. My boys had been asking for lemonade, and I was planning on getting it at Publix. When I discovered the frozen Publix lemonade on sale, I knew that was the perfect solution. Instead of 1 gallon for $2.99, I was able to get two frozen cans at Target at $0.87 each (making 2 gallons). I also made a last-minute change to my grocery list, when I discovered that the Simply Orange juice was cheaper at Target than at Publix. By buying the OJ at Target instead of at Publix, I saved 15 cents. I know, it’s not much, but it was the price for a can of veggies at Publix.
