target clearance deals

With four kids in the house, we go through an awful amount of cereal, and that’s with each kid being limited to having cereal only once a day. So, whenever I find a great deal on Target, I stock up. This week, Target has our kids’ favorite cereal – the Mom’s Best Cereals – on sale. There are Mom’s Best Cereal coupons out as well, which means only $1.50 per box (cheaper than ALDI cereal), and I made sure to pick up 4 boxes. Target limits customers to 4 of the same coupon per customer, but I might just go back a second time to get more.

The Market Pantry bulk snacks were treats for our two youngest sons. They have amazing teachers, and as a frugal shopper I make sure they have lots of snacks to give out to the kids. It always amazes me how much the teachers buy for their students out of their own pocket, and even though it adds to our budget, we have the extra room since we shop with coupons.

I actually had to track down the solar lights, because I’ve been watching them for a while, but they had been at a standstill at $12+ for while. Today they had moved, and I almost missed them. We put them up this afternoon to see if they worked, and tonight the lights are on outside, so I’m probably going to go back for more.

The Target  back to school clearance is still mostly at 30 percent off, and our local Target store began moving things out of the back to school area and into the regular school supplies and craft aisle, so I assume a drop to 50 percent off may happen soon. I only found a few notebooks, which is one of the big things I stock up on this time of the year. I never usually buy them at 30 percent off though, but this year I made an exception.
