Had a great trip to Target today!  More great Glade and office supply deals!!

A couple notes:  The eye drops were in the $.97 spot, but rang up $3.14.  My cashier adjusted the price, but make sure you watch what they ring up for at your store.  Also, the Scotch tape was still marked at $1 at my store, but I took them to a price scanner in the store and they rang up at $.49.  Make sure you double check the price if it’s not marked correctly.

Here’s what I got, with coupon matchups!

If you’re just starting out couponing, here’s a small transaction to try out at Target.  It only takes a couple of couponing trips to get hooked and never go back!!

All of the following prices are on-going deals and pricing, except the Scotch tape.  The Scotch tape goes on sale from 8/5 through 8/11 for $.49 instead of the regular price of $1.  One more note, my Target store did not have the Clean & Clear trial size, but check to see if your store does!
