Morning Star Veggie Burgers 39 cents a box!

I took the whole family including little girl's friend to Target and it went great. The girls are old enough to entertain themselves in the book section and Papa kept the babies busy strolling them around the toy department. I did stick to my list with only a few exceptions. I brought the coupon binder in with me and it was a good thing. You never know when a surprise sale or clearance item will pop up!

I had 2 transactions. I greeted my checker and told her right away "I have 2 transactions and a lot of coupons. Is that OK?" It is always good to let your checker know what's up.

The first was for a great deal on Softsoap Ensembles. I learned about this on Money Saving Mom. This was perfect timing because we needed hand soap. These are the new ones where you keep the pump top and buy the refill bottoms. Both the bottles and the refills are on sale right now at Target for $6 each. When you buy 2 you get a $5 Target gift card. There are manufacture coupons and target coupons you can stack to buy these.

Key: MQ=Manufacture coupon. TQ=Target coupon. IP=Internet Printable
First transaction:
Buy 2 Softsoap Ensemble Value Packs at $6 each
Use 2 $2/1 manufacturer's coupons here You will need a 2nd computer to get 2 of these.
