free at Target

 

I have been avoiding the big shopping trips for a few weeks now, because shopping with three boys just isn’t fun. Still, I could not ignore that our fridge was getting very empty, we were running low on basics from ALDI and I still needed more school supplies for the kids. So today I went all out and hit three stores with the boys, I am still missing the weekly Publix run, but I guess there’s still tomorrow.

At Target I did a very strategic shopping trip, where I split my transactions into three to get the best final out-of-pocket cost. My Target store does not like to give overages on coupons, which is why I made sure that my RoseArt products exceeded the coupon value by $0.2.

  1. How Do You Get The Free Coupons For Merona

    • Anna, I apologize. I hit the publish button by mistake before I added the coupon links. I have now linked to the Target coupon page, but I am not sure if the Merona coupons are still there. You can find the coupons under apparel on the coupon page, and these coupons have a way of reappearing and disappearing, so once you see them make sure to print them.

      I always carry them with me to Target and then I search the Target clearance racks, and right now there are lots and lots of them. At the 70 percent off racks, you may very likely find a freebie or two.

  2. How did you get them to accept more than one merona /mossimo coupon? My targets did not allow me to do so, even when I separated my purchases.
