    I love to surprise my husband with little treats I’ve couponed for, too. His favorite are gummy bears. Healthy, no. A great surprise sometimes? Yes! 🙂

    I’m really new to this whole couponing thing. But Target has a store coupon for Jello mixes buy 3 get on free. Could you us that one as well as the $1/3? Just wondering. I’m getting ready to do a small shopping trip.

  • Marie says:

    I’ve been getting some amazing deals lately at Target with coupon stacking and rolling gift cards. My best deal in the last week was finding clearance Charmin toilet paper cheaper then the cheapest off brand per roll!! I bought 9 24 roll packs!!! Also I found Glad tall kitchen trash bags on clearance and then had $3.25 off each one so I got 88 per box for under $4!!!
    And yesterday I bought the up and up iubofren for .49cents.

  • Keiva says:

    Don’t forget to stack that jello coupon with a target coupon buy3get1 free!

    • Gretchen says:

      Yes, I didn’t realize Target had a coupon for jello until AFTER I went shopping. Oh well!

      • Nichole says:

        If you take the coupon and your receipt back to Target you’ll get the coupon amount back in cash. I’ve done it several times before.

  • amanda says:

    When I did the campbell’s soup deal, it didn’t take off both coupons. 🙁

  • Kim says:

    The Campbell’s soup coupon wasn’t on my site. What’s a zipcode that worked? Thanks!

  • Gretchen,

    Quick question: Jello takes several hours to set. How do you use it for last-minute guests? (I am thinking that your definition of last-minute must be different from mine).

  • Sherri says:

    Thanks for the heads-up on the Stayfree. I saw it in the sale flyer, but the photo showed large packages and I had assumed it would not work on smaller ones. After seeing this post, I stopped by Target today and got both Stayfree and Carefree products for practically nothing! Thanks!
