UPDATE: Clearance is now 75% for Black Dot. Thanks Jen!
Okay, so I had fun with this shopping trip. I'm very thankful my kids were super duper nice and deserved all the free popcorn they got later. Plus I finally got that elusive Vanish Drops. I used two B1G1 manufacturer coupons. It's supposed to stack with the Target B1G1 but the cashier gave those back to me, saying that she didn't need those. From the receipt, it looks like the coupon made each item free instead of B1G1. So I wonder if the Target coupon would do the same. Anyway, I spent $1.53 on brownies and tuna and splurged $10.20 on Dollar Spot including $1.25 on a black straw hat!
Thanks to my friend Misty for the heads up since I love me some Target Dollar Spot clearance! It's 50% off since Tuesday, so it will likely go down to 75% very soon. Even the Rayovac batteries are only $0.50 and FREE with overage using this $1 PRINT. If you buy 2 packs of batteries and used two $1 coupons, you'll get these and two other items FREE because of the overage! I didn't even think about it until I saw the picture and receipt at Hip2Save. Some have reported problems using this coupon for the batteries in the red package because it says Heavy Duty. But logically, these should also be alkaline because what else is there if it's not lithium or rechargeable?
Since Target has these dollar items on clearance, I've only been to the Dollar Tree once or twice a year. Why pay $1 when you can pay $0.25 on 75% clearance? If you are a homeschool or classroom teacher, they have lots of teaching supplies like name tags, weather charts, lesson planners, perpetual calendars, award certificates and more. This timer is $2.50 and shaped like an apple. How cute is that!
I also found Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix for $0.69 and the Supreme Brownie Mix for $1.89 (cheaper with $0.75 off 2 PRINT). Starkist tuna pouch for as little as $0.84 were by the endcap instead of with the other tuna. If you subscribe to All You, use the B2G1 from July and $1/2 from May to pay $0.64 for all 3. Check other Cheap Finds from Totally Target for more deals! In my case, the cashier would only give me $0.84 instead of $1/2 and I decided to let it go. For some reason that is how the coupon rang up.
