Target Sales on Groceries

Normally we don't buy much in the way of food at Target, because there's just not a lot of selection at our smallish store.  Most of what they do carry is similar (or even better) in price to the grocery stores in Minot, though, so we do pick some stuff up there sometimes.

This week I noticed that there was a $10/$50 coupon for food and beverage items at Target, though, so I thought it might be worth checking into.  Then I saw that Pepsi was on sale as well.  I'm the only one that regularly drinks soda at my house, and I'm cutting back, but I still go through a 12 pack every 3 weeks or so, and was down to just 3 or 4 cans left, so it was time to buy some anyway. :)

I didn't take any pictures, but I did end up spending $52.47 on food and beverages all together, so I was able to use the $10/50 coupon to bring the total down, and then used my red card to get another 5% off.  A few of the things that I purchased (veggie straws, archer farms salsa, and organic eggs) had cartwheel coupons as well.  So I think we ended up getting some decent deals.  It was nothing compared to the deals I used to get when I couponed a lot and really paid close attention to everything I bought, but it was still decent savings.

Adding up the amount I saved because things were on sale, the $10, the 5%, and the cartwheel savings, I ended up saving about $20, which is pretty good, considering Target was a spur of the moment stop with no preplanning at all Sunday afternoon. :)

Our Target just started selling groceries not long ago (cold food groceries, I should say). I am so hoping it catches on, but not much stays around here, so I dunno... I do like the selections they have though, and the convenience of getting groceries while I'm at Target.

And $20 is a fab. savings! High five to ya! :)

We have a Super Target, so we have a pretty large selection to chose from. However, I don't normally go there for full out grocery shopping. I think you did great combining the coupons and sales to save $20!

I loved that coupon, but I didn't use it at Target:) I used at our local grocery store, which accepts Target coupons. We just got groceries in our Target store a few years ago, and I love it. Do you use the Target cartwheel app? I save a lot of money with it.
