This morning I made a quick trip to Target to pick up some cheap groceries, and scout out the clearance deals. There were not much in the way of clearance though, and I stuck to my grocery list. To get most out of the Target money maker deals, I split my transaction up in three. 
Without the money maker deals I would have spent $11.23 after taxes, if it had not been for the money maker, but my final total was $9.21. It might not seem like much of a money maker, but I got 6 free Cover Girl eye shadows as well.
