Savvy Student Shopper’s Trips, Wedding Cakes, Etc.

EDIT: Finished Product!

I’m writing this Friday night (technically early Saturday morning) and I’m exhausted! I love posting my trips for you guys to see, so I took a break to type this up for ya. Michael and I are making a wedding cake (see photo above!). If all goes well, I’ll post a picture Saturday or Sunday for you all to see.

I went to Target with momma today (meaning Friday evening) without a game plan really. I had about 2.43 minutes before bed yesterday at 3 am to plan the trip because my other free time was spent creating a cake. Here’s the Target trip:

  • Reach Floss – FREE after $1/1 coupon (NLA)
  • (2) Delimex Rolls – Very cheap after MQ/TQ stack!
  • (2) Band-Aids 8 ct. – FREE after $1/1 coupon
  • (4) Bic Pens $0.99 – FREE after $1/1 coupon from recent SS
  • Lysol Automatic Soap Refill – Clearanced to $2.96 (Not a good deal, but my grandmother likes to have the “real” refills)
  • Gillette Shave Cream Travel Size – FREE after $1/1 Shave Prep coupon from January P&G
  • (2) Market Pantry Mac&Cheese – FREE after $1/1 Target coupon
  • (2) Hatfield Sauerkraut (YUM! Ruben Sandwiches!) -Clearanced to $0.60 each
  • (2) Activia $2.19 – $0.19 after MQ/TQ stack!
  • (3) Champion C9 Fleece Pullovers – Clearanced to $5.08 (rang up cheaper than what they were tagged!) and used $2.50/1 coupons (found in the Tide aisle!) = $2.58 each! Woohoo!
Paid around $14 with tax!
And I went to CVS Thursday. Almost everything was out of stock. The nice cashier probably thinks I’m insane asking for 5 rainchecks.
  • Nice & Easy Foam Clearanced to $2.49 – FREE with $3/1 coupon from P&G
  • Revlon Nail Files $1.99 – FREE with $2/1 coupon from Magic Coupon Machine
  • (3) Hallmark Cards $0.99 each (Got a $3 ECB back)
  • Almay Eye Makeup $5.99 -Used $2/1 MQ and $3/1 CVS coupon from Machine (Got a $3 ECB back)

Paid tax and left with $6 in ECBs!
