Despite a wet forecast I decided to head out and get the deals before my coupons expired, and I was able to squeeze a quick Target trip into my busy day. I picked up the Febreeze money maker at Target to help pay for two birthday gifts from my youngest sons to their older brother. The matchbox air planes cost $10 at Amazon.com, but I knew I had seen them for less at Target and sure enough at $2.99, it was a piece that surely beats Amazon’s price. 
I divided my shopping trip into two, as I can only use on of each Target coupon per transaction.

Some of the Target coupons above may no longer be available, as the good coupons run out of prints fast. I usually print out all the coupons I think I am going to use once they first appear.
