Try good2grow juice w/coupon

I've seen these cute bottles around but could never bring myself to spend a whopping $2.49 on one juice bottle. A couple of days ago I came across a coupon for a free 6 pack refill when you buy 1 good 2 grow juice bottle. I did some research and decided it was a great time to try this juice. It has no added sugar, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives & no GMO. 

Here's the link to the nutrition info for apple juice:

I bought the juice with the Thomas spout which was a veggie blend juice which has less sugar than the apple juice and it was very good. They have tons of different characters to choose from. The best part is that the spout is spill proof!!

You keep the spout part, clean and reuse with the 6 pack refills. 

To get your coupon you can go to the Good 2 grow Facebook page
or go directly to Common Kindness

You will need to set up a login and then you can print your coupons. My local grocery store (Safeway) had an electronic coupon that I loaded onto my card so check your store e coupons to see if your store has one too. 

I paid about $2.50 for the 1 juice bottle and received the 6 pack of refill bottles for free. They are super convenient for picnic lunches or school lunches and did I mention that they are spill proof!! And did I mention that my little guy LOVED the veggie blend juice!! I need to go back and get more juice with my printed coupons!!

Part 2: Targets $10 of $50

So last night I stayed up again to redo my grocery list and organize myself for another target run. I decided to get beef for our hamburger BBQ this weekend. That was the majority part of my purchase. I then figured out from my grocery list what I could get from target. I found myself gravitating to buying stuff I didn't need or would never use so I had to stay focused so it would make sense for my needs. 

I was really having a hard time wrapping my head around paying targets high prices for meats but I convinced myself that the target $10 coupon would bring the actual price down by a lot per lb so that's how I decided to look at this trip. 

One thing I have been doing is having an alternate list of a few items I can buy in case other things from my list are out of stock or not on sale for the price I expected. 

I had seen a list by Moms By Heart that had Zevia priced out to $3.33 but I didn't know if my target had it at that price so that was a big maybe for my list. Luckily it was on sale 3 for $10 and I had $2 off coupons so I bought this soda which normally retails for $5.99 a six pack for $1.33 a six pack. 

When I got to target I was surprised to find lots of packages of beef with $3 off coupons!! This made the beef cheaper than I could have gotten it at other grocery stores where it was on sale!! Whew that was such a relief and great surprise. That allowed me to pick up some yummy clearance items that were not on my list. 

So here is what I bought. 
I also used my $10 gift cards from yesterday so out of pocket I paid $31.66 in cash.

I think this was another great shopping run!!

I didn't have as many coupons this time but those $3 coupons on the meat made up for it!!

Happy couponing!!

Targets $10 off of $50 grocery coupon

Last night I stayed up making my plan, my list and gathering coupons into my Target envelope. My goal was to buy $52 worth of groceries for under $36 and I think I even surprised myself. Here's a look at my receipt.

As you know, I have a toddler. So when we got up this morning, I didn't turn on the tv or open the door to the play room. My little guy went to the potty and I quickly got him dressed. I treated him to Starbucks (it's in the same shopping plaza as the target). 

I had my emergency weapons for him: a lollipop, m&m's, his kindle and my phone apps to try to keep him entertained during the shopping trip. Luckily, we didn't need to take out the candy which is reserved only for super emergencies as he doesn't really ever eat candy (unless grandma and grandpa are around). 

There have been tons of match ups but I wanted to buy things that I would normally buy, I didn't want ten boxes of pasta or spaghetti sauce or frozen food (except ice cream of course). So this is the list I came up with.

18 items for $36.15 plus I received 2- $5 gift cards. Pretty good, I think.

Most coupons were from the 5/11 (silk) & 5/18 (skinny girl, skinny cow, banana boat & $10 target coupon) paper, target printable coupons (sargento, bagels, $10 off $59 target coupon also available to print), target mobile coupons (Hebrew & Stonyfield- which for some reason didn't ring up) and the Sargento manufacturer coupon of .55 off of 1 thin slices was in this months issue of Parents and then of course the cartwheel is the last way I saved. 

This is what I bought:
Market pantry popcorn 
Kashi granola bars (on clearance)
Kashi cereal bar
Skinny girl stevia sweetener
Market pantry sweetener
Silk almond milk
Stony field yokids yogurt
Sargento thin slices
Market pantry wheat bagels (2)
Hebrew national hot dogs (2) - for weekend BBQ
Skinny cow ice cream (4) *gift card
Banana boat after sun lotion (2) * gift card

I had a total savings of $39.07 and paid $36.15.

My little guy did fantastic and even helped me push the cart to the cashier. Any longer though and he would have lost it, so I got out just in time, this time :).

Good luck!! Please let me know how you use your $10 off $50 coupon!! I'm making another run tomorrow for meat!

Happy couponing.
