Things We Need Shopping Trip: $48 at Target


I always love sharing shopping trips! But sometimes I feel like if I don’t have 1425234 cheap or free items that people not might care to see what I’m buying each week.

I have always been big into shopping for things that we need and trying to not over clutter our house. As much as I love a good deal, I’m really trying to cut back on buying too much. More power to you if you want to stock up, there is no shame in that– I did it myself at one point and loved it– I was saving money and that is all that mattered.

That is one thing I love about couponing– there is no right or wrong way to save! You can save money to your own liking, it’s not a competition. You are doing what works for you.

Each week, when I go out shopping– I will show you my “Things We Need” Shopping Trip which will be things that we need now. because that is how I plan to coupon now.

This week, Target has a great Buy $50, Get $10 Target Gift Card offer, so I decided to take advantage of that because we are having family over and there were a few things I needed that I knew I wasn’t going to find deals on elsewhere.

    Same here! I might stock up for the month or a few months, but I don’t feel the need to have a three-year supply of everything. I had to take advantage of the $10 gift card deal for groceries and that same contact lense solution deal as well! 🙂 I was at the store and didn’t think I’d hit $50 but I kept calculating and recalculating what I had in my cart, then threw in a few more things, and was able to get the deal. Can’t walk away from $10!
