I have spent the last couple of months trying to learn how to coupon more successfully. Besides signing up for freebies (I already got a whole bunch of things, such as full size shampoo bottles, a pack of wipes, and quite a few travel sized beauty products), I wanted to learn a little more about the 'science' of combining coupons with sales.
Here are a few items I picked up at Target over the weekend for which I used coupons:
I would have probably gotten a few other items, but my hubby and baby were starting to loose patience with me. Therefore, this weekend my Target trip was cut a bit short.
