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 http://momsbyheart.net/target-top-twenty-deals-174/ 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.
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!!
