Target Deals: Cheap Cage-Free Eggs, Diapers, Sheets

Those of you who do not have children, take heed: Have your fun now. Because once you've got a few brats in the house, your idea of a fun night out may be reduced to an hour of pushing a cart with no kids in it around Super Target.

Yep, I went to Target alone, and I liked it. How could I not -- I found some deals that were not advertised in the weekly flyer and I scored diapers for as close to 10 cents apiece as I will probably ever get.

The deals:

1. Spareboe Farms cage-free eggs @ $1.68. I have NEVER bought cage-free eggs for under $2.49. Usually if eggs go on sale it's by a dime or two, but these were $1 off. I bought 3 dozen!

2. Free Archer Farms Artisan mini bread loaves. I used four prints of this coupon good for $1 off ANY AF bakery item to get four little loaves. Unfortunatley in the last hour of the night, my store had nothing out for $1 except these loaves. Oh well, these things are delish.

3. 64-oz. Ocean Spray juice $1 and $1.50 after thie $1/1 coupon on this page. Some people were finding peelies for $1/1 on them, which would have made them free. Alas, only one of mine had a peelie and that was for cranberries. Also, I just noticed that one of the flavors I chose was $2.50 before the coupon, not $1.98, so that one cost me a buck fitty.

4. Campbell's soup 59 cents (including cream of mushroom). Used a 40 cents/2 from a recent insert that I had in my file, so I got the Campbell's soup for 39 cents a can.

5. Wine Cube $15.99 -- that's $2 off, and it holds 3 liters.

6. The Huggies diaper deal I described already -- buy 2 boxes Huggies, get a $10 gift card. I sweetened it by using a $5/$25 baby items coupon that was to expire tomorrow. This coupon was the motivation for this whole trip. With my two $3/1 coupons and the $5/1 and the gift card, I ended up paying $39. There are over 190 diapers in the size 1-2 box, meaning I paid 10.3 cents per diaper. That's probably the cheapest I'll ever buy!

7. Flannel sheets for $14.99 (regular price $19.99). These were in last week's flyer -- turns out the sale lasts through 11/28. The ad said "all sizes" but they didn't have King, so I just got a Full set for Nutmeg's bed. They're cute, kiddie-type winter designs:

I also picked up a couple of cute pieces from the fall clothes on the clearance rack -- a skirt for $4.48 and a top for $3.74. There was a really cute black coat marked down from $40 to $20, but I knew it would just end up covered in spit-up so I passed. It's the three-tiered cotton jacket, apparently from juniors. So cute! I'm kind of kicking myself, looking at the picture online. They had several in medium and in large, maybe other sizes too. This is a the new Super Target on Mannheim in the Western Suburbs.

The other exciting thing about my trip? The cashier took my Walgreen's Register Rewards, including the expired one. Yay!

There were disappointments on this trip, too, though: I couldn't use the $1/1 Bumblebee printables (no longer available) to get free tuna because they were priced at something like $1.29. Same goes for my $1/1 Muir Glen coupons -- even the tomato paste is now $1.40 there. Bah.

And P.S.: I also stopped by the Ultra grocery store in Forest Park, on a reader tip. They have several shelves of clearance items there, with most things apparently marked half price. Nearly a whole shopping cart of Huggies Little Swimmers, and I think they were marked $3 something. There were one or two packs of Pull-Ups as well marked something like $4.50 I think. I got a pack of Crayola Washable Markers for $1.09, but that looked like the only one there. Oh, and a lot of Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta for 89 cents, which becomes 39 cents if you buy two and use the printable $1/2 from Coupons.com.
